wireless card issue


3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I recently installed OSX on my custom build:


AMD Venice 3000+ @ 2500Mhz

1024 mb ram

Gigabyte nForce3 mobo

AGP Geforce 6800 128mb

D-Link DWL-G520 802.11g


Everything seemed good until I tried installing the macvidia drivers.

I installed the drivers, rebooted, my video did not change, but I for some reason lost the ability to use my wireless card. It now detects it as ethernet and I am unable to scan for APs. It worked before the macvidia drivers, so i doubt there is a compatiblity issue, but the card now does not work and the macvidia drivers do nothing. Any suggestions would be most appreciated.

Hi Shappy,

I've never used macvidia before, and I'm also no expert in OS X, but I'll try my best.


I had the same problem with my Linksys WPC54GS back in 10.4.1, heres what I did...


Firstoff, I changed my IO80211Family.kext with the one I had on my OS X install DVD (I thoroughly screwed mine over by playing with it too much).


Second (and most importantly), I went into the AppleAirPort2.kext and added my device ID into the Info.plist.


After repairing permissions, I was back in business. Hope this works for you.
