the older apple cards atheros (2006- 2009) wont work in dell laptops for some reason. only the newer ath9k work.

so if thats ar5008x Ar6bxb72 i couldnt use it in my laptop. but works fine in some other laptops and in desktops.

if i rebranded device id of ar5bxb62 to non mac it worked exambple change 1c to 1014 (ibm) subven 58A then it would work.. seems it alters the way it uses pci-e bus

The broadcom 4322 works out the box. Recognized as third party card. You can rebrand it to an apple one too
