Hi, Since I can't post in any other forums I'll put it in here and someone may be able to move it.


I was able to get my Atheros 5005G working in 10.6.4.


Update your hackintosh to 10.6.4


You need to make sure Info.plist contains your Device and Vendor ID in AirPortAtheros.kext which is inside /System/Library/Extensions/IO8021Family.kext/Plugins.


My card was in the Info.plist already so i did not need to make an update.


Then you need to delete AppleHPET.kext from /System/Library/Extensions. if you don't do this the card will not be recognised.


You may also need to edit /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist and change the following:

<key>BSD Name</key>





<key>BSD Name</key>












These steps have given me a fully working wifi.


I am not sure if this works in other 5xxx cards however if you try this and it works on your card please post below.
