Intel WIFI Link 3945 / 5100 / net80211 port - [[NEW STATUS UPDATE 2013]]

Recommended Posts

Developers from MercurySquad have made significant progress (since 2009) and are looking for someone with technical skills ((C++, IOKit, WiFi and PCI driver programming) to take over the project.

It's sad to see such a great project hitting a stumbling block due to lack of time for the developers..

One thing to remember.. Significant progress in writing a working driver has already been made.. someone has to finish the work.. that's all that's left for a working Intel 5100 Wifi. :guitar:

Sadly in Israel the warranty is not by Dell. Its by a very bad company, with very bad service so I'm sure that if I'll open it, and they will find something different/bad stickers, they wont fix my laptop :(

Tha's not the point and also you forget that in some laptops you cant just replace the Wireless card bacause it can be blacklisted from the BIOS and yes you can edit the BIOS but its not smth everyone is willing to do coz if you mess it up then you have bricked your laptop.

 

On another note i dont see this project moving at all coz it has been like 4 years or more for just a driver

    • Good evening to all. So, I have an external 1TB seagate HD and it always reads normally, but now when I plug it into my HACK it just does not read, it does not even appear on the disk utility. The light always turns blue from the HD without blinking. However I plugged it into windows, on a macbook and it worked normally. I already formatted my hack but it did not work. Thank you in advance for the help and sorry my bad english   my kexts: AppleALC.kext FakeSMC.kext IntelGraphicsFixup.kext IntelMausiEthernet.kext Lilu.kext WhateverGreen.kext VoodooHDA.kext USBInjectAll.kext NvidiaGraphicsFixup.kext   GTX 1080 Windforce core i5 7º generation 8gb Ram H170M Plus BR    
    • WOL packet is reaching the machine from LAN and from WAN (set with port forwarding), tested with "nc -l -u 9".
    • For me the forum seems reasonably OK, except whenever I see the word 'LOADING' - like when clicking another page of a thread - when it just stops completely and never returns.   I use an adblocker, so adverts aren't slowing me down.  Browsing the forum indexes is not too bad, as is clicking to view any thread.  Ditto clicking a link in an email notification to go to a particular post in a thread.  Sometimes it takes maybe five seconds to load a page, which is a bit too long.  But it's not terrible.   But then whenever I click on any other thread page, which tries to do the in-page content load (without a full page refresh), I see LOADING and then nothing further happens, even after minutes.   It's definitely not related to which content is loaded, but rather how it is loaded.  For example if I go to the index for this forum, then click directly to page 11 of this thread, it loads in 1-5 seconds.  But if I click the link to page 11 within the thread, it never comes back.  I just see this, forever:     This stuck issue seems to me likely something broken (code or configuration?) rather than a general slowdown.  But maybe there's also a general slowdown, especially for those who are seeing adverts.
    • This is as far as I can get with the AMD kexts and the device ID added. They load but the frame buffer isn't loaded. I've tried loading all 7 frame buffers included in the X1000 kext with no luck. From the tests Gigamaxx did there seems to be more luck spoofing as Intel graphics there. More support may come from integrated Vega though, hard to tell.    
    • as documented here it is a sample rate standard and i have also tested it and i can confirm that it works with my audigy rx at least, i have to test it with other cards   https://github.com/audiojs/sample-rate
