Atheros AR5007 on Compaq

Recommended Posts

Hello Dear Friends,

This is my first post. But I'm not new,

I have a Laptop (Compaq Presario CQ61) with the Following Specifications (http://h10010.www1.h...8492.html?dnr=1).

I've been trying to find a Driver / Kext that matches my Computer for months, When I didn't found (last year) I finally gave up and Uninstalled Mac From my Laptop, This time I decided to Install it again and See if there Any updates on the Subjects, Unfortunately I didn't find Anything. I did found "AR5007.pkg" "AirportAtheros.kext" "IO80211Family.kext", But these Never worked. Now I installed those and I see theres a Wifi Icon says "Wifi: No hardwere detected", No Airport, Nothing. I tried finding Wifi with KisMac, Didn't find any, I've been researching this for Too Long alone,

 

So I thought maybe here I'll get my help and I won't need to retire from Mac again, I just love mac :)

Please Help me? As I said Above, these are My Computer Details - http://h10010.www1.h...8492.html?dnr=1

 

P.S: I got iATKOS L2, 10.7.2. Runing PdaNet with My iPhone provides me Internet for this time..

 

- Thanks for Reading,

Aviv Amar.

For that card, rebranding may be needed or it may not be possible to work at all, so first will need some more detailed info. Download and install attached lspci and then run this command in terminal:

lspci -vvnn

and post results section for wifi only, will looks kinda like this, but with your cards info:

Umm, Okay I just downloaded it and Installed.

It gave me "lspci: Cannot find any working access method."

So I booted up to 32 bit mode. It fixed it. This is My Atheros Details:

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/122365-rebranding-atheros-ar5006eg-to-a-vanilla-card/ This is your only possible option afaik. I can't help you with the process due to the possibility of bricking your wifi card, and I don't want to be responsible. Read entire thread as many times as needed to fully understand as best you can and see what others may have done wrong prior to doing anything yourself. Or buy a new compatible card or compatible USB wifi.

If your willing to buy a replacement anyway, might as well try and if you brick it, at least gain experience in the process :)

his card is AR5BXB63 =bad , no rebrand.. give up.

 

buy ar5b91 (with no pins missing... look at pic of cards on ebay, some have a few pins missing. not preffered) works out of box.. but the comapaq 104 unauthorized bios error locks it out.

 

bios mod for NO WHITELIST(so u can use any wifi card inside it) for your laptop model =SP51527.exe http://www.bios-mods..._ByCamiloml.exe

if u need help flashing from usb dos, i can help.

      Hello...
      i am ssking....
      Now i am using
      Asus n43jf laptop
      1st generation core i 5 460m
      4gb ddr 3 ram
      500 gb harddisk
      Intel  graphics 1650 mb and Nvidia geforce gt 425m 1gb ddr3
      now i am using yosemite 10.10.5 nicely
      but how to disable intel gpu and use nvidia 425m 1gb gpu?
      Is there any way to use nvidia gpu from my dual graphics laptop?

      Hello everyone, I have an Asus gl502vmk (i7 kabylake + GTX 1060 6 gb) laptop and I tried all the patches/kexts to get the brightness with fn keys/touchpad (I2C ELAN 1200 works with VooDoo I2C kext v1.0 but no gestures/preference pane)/Keyboard backlight to work but no success so far, any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.
      [EDIT] (10/04/2018)
      Battery status now works, thanks to @RehabMan turned out to be incorrect SMBIOS (used iMac instead of Mbp) lol, but it drains crazy fast (~1.5 - 2 hours while on standby (all apps quited!), on windows 10 it lasts 4 - 5 hours, and on linux it lasts 6 ~ 7 hours!)
      And with VoodooI2C v2.0.1 + VoodooI2CHID kext and patched DSDT, the touchpad is now detected in the sys pref pane but still no input.
      Sound works with VoodooHDA v2.9.1, but the only issue is that the jack sense isn't working (the output device doesn't auto switch to headphone when connected)
       
      [EDIT 2] (11/04/2018)
      The system brightness now works thanks to @onejay09 but I have no brightness slider, and there are 4 extra brightness levels (brightness stops increasing after 12 levels)  and the brightness keys are not mapped correctly, plus the brightness decreases when I plug in the ac adapter, then increases if I unplug it???, the brightness level isn't also saved after reboot.
      battery still drains crazy fast (~1.5 - 2 hours, even with brightness at 50%, so apparently it is a power management issue).
      and I also have shutdowns while in sleep mode (I tried darkwake=10 and darkwake-0 and darkwake=no)
       
      P.S. I have uploaded my new report files, thanks!

      Salve, sto ancora tentando di far funzionare il mio lettore di schede SD, macos lo riconosce in resoconto di sistema ma non funziona, in firma c'è il modello esatto e gli id che ottengo da resoconto di sistema, ho provato a seguire varie guide e oggi ho trovato questa che sembrerebbe aver funzionato a questo utente: 
      Secondo voi è una buona idea eliminare un kext di sistema? E poi questi kext di cui parla dove gli trovo? Grazie a tutti

      Salve a tutti, ho un problema all'avvio di mac os che ho già provato a risolvere con foskvs ma senza risultati..
      Attualmente come smbios uso MacBookPro 12,1 (portatile in firma) mentre se uso imac 14,1 questo problema non si presenta.
      Dite che posso tenere iMac 14,1 magari rigenerando l'ssdt per il pm?
