I have been waiting for this for a very long time, and no Kext for the 5100 is the only reason I don't use OS X on a regular basis. I noticed that your last post was 2 weeks ago. Are you still working on this, and is there any word on the release? Thanks for your work, and good luck.

Hey I would love to test out your program. I am not a coder just want to feel like something is happening with this wifi card. Like so many other people the wireless is the only thing not working. It would be cool to try out your program even if it is not fully working just to have hope that this card will be supported soon. Anyways thanks for all your work!!!!

Awesome! Thanks for working on this, it is the one thing keeping me from using my Hackintosh full time :rolleyes:

 

Please don't abandon this project! That would suck.

Just wondering if you knew how close Intel's 4965AGN revision is to their newer 5100 your working on? Possibly if it's not too much trouble include support for the 4965AGN?

Actually the 4965 is already supported by the iwidarwin project.

Hi,

I'm a C/C++/objc etc. developer with quite a bit of experience working at kernel level with OSX. I'd love to collaborate if that's possible; I have 10.5.6 and 10.5.7 on multiple machines for development, could test on a 10.5.7 HP HDX 16. Excellent work, much appreciated, and a good approach I think.

thanks. spartango

hmm pjmiller is over 2 weeks unavaliable. Maybe he has given up. I've followed this thread and maybe one of you start a new programm on his own with these helpers.

 

Cheers

Hopefully, he'll return. He hasn't actually distributed any of the stuff he was doing (to my knowledge), so it'd be difficult to start work from where he left off...

he's not coming back. You all are getting your hopes up now. It's been about 3 weeks since we last heard from him. Sometimes, you gotta learn to cash in your chips. If he comes back, great, then we may get a driver. if he doesn't, then you gotta realize that maybe he was just playing us or maybe something happened to him. We dont know; but if we keep our hopes up, then we'll just feel even worse after 3 months of not hearing from him. I was REALLY looking forward to the driver just like everyone else did so don't think i'm just trying to upset you guys, but i doubt that it's going to be done at the present situation. That's all i have to say for the time being.

I have an idea....a guy I know's friend made a driver for this. I tested it but nothing happened. If one of you guys wants to take a look at it and see what might be the problem, that would be great! I don't know if it's just a fake, but if someone could take a look at it and try and fix it up, that would be a GREAT help!

i knew it was too good to be true. guess we will all just have to wait. or maybe its time to go for a different hardware choice? well i guess its still windows vista for now until i figure out the wireless situation. i can only use leopard for photoshop and music.

buy an usb dongle like zydas 1211 or realtek 8187b

it works like a charm !

lol. Im beginning to doubt the guy in the first post. It seemed like he was just bluffing then left as the demand to provide the driver became greater.
