12 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, all...

My Eee PC's Wifi broke recently, after testing sleep. Airport says "no airport card installed" or something like that...

Install method: iAtkos S3 V2 AsereBLN bootloader, Voodoo TSC, VoodooHDA, atherosfix.pkg; netbookinstaller 0.8.4 RC1 Charmelon NBI, General Extensions

Do I need a diffrent kext?

i use AR5B91 aka Ar9281 with no extra kexts.. works oob as its it is 2A while Ar9285 is 2B (not in stock kext.. add it)

 

likely u need to turn off in bios fast boot or quickboot. (someone had this issue and that fixed it.)

make sure your wifi is setup as b+g only that was the issue that worked for my eepc. I used AtherosWiFiInjector.kext and kexthelper to install it. I am only using SL 10.6.3 and I am afraid if I update I will break something.

   Name (_ADR, 0x00)\n
   Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)\n
   {\n
    Store (Package (0x0C)\n
	    {\n
		    "AAPL,slot-name", \n
		    Buffer (0x08)\n
		    {\n
			    "AirPort"\n
		    }, \n
		    "device-id", \n
		    Unicode ("*"), \n
		    "device_type", \n
		    Buffer (0x08)\n
		    {\n

		    {\n
			    0x6B, 0x10, 0x00, 0x00\n
		    }\n
	    }, Local0)\n
    DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0))\n
    Return (Local0)\n
   }\n
}
end

 

with WLAN

 

into device name_adr 0x00 parent_adr 0x001C0001 insert

Just this code is enough for my PCIe wireless card to work:

 

Device (ARPT)
{
Name (_ADR, Zero)
Name (_PRW, Package (0x02)
{
0x0B,
0x05
})
Method (_DSM, 4, NotSerialized)
{
Store (Package (0x04)
{
"device-id",
Unicode ("*"),
"subsystem-vendor-id",
Buffer (0x04)
{
0x6B, 0x10, 0x00, 0x00
}
}, Local0)
DTGP (Arg0, Arg1, Arg2, Arg3, RefOf (Local0))
Return (Local0)
}
}

 

Tipo de tarjeta: AirPort Extreme (0x168C, 0x30A4)
Versión del firmware: Atheros 9287: 4.0.72.0-P2P

      Hi, I've upgraded from Mojave to Catalina and now my WiFi card didn't recognized in system. I upgraded clover and kexts to latest versions, but Wifi didn't appears.
      In "about this Mac" I see:
      CoreWLAN: 13.0 ((null))
      CoreWLANKit: 13.0 ((null))
      Menu Extra: 13.0 ((null))
      System Information: 12.0 (1355)
      IO80211 Family: 12.0 (1200.12.2b1
      Diagnostics: 1.0 (910)
      AirPort Utility: Not Installed
       
      My kexts is:
       
      I checked forum and table of supported Wifi cards - and everything should work (a lot of people has this card working on Catalina). When I was on Mojave my wifi was ok.
      As I can see in terminal output ( after command "kextstat") - kext for wifi not loaded, but I'm not sure because I haven't got a lot of experience of this
      *my english isn't good enough, sorry for that*
       
      Any help appreciated and thanks

      m.2 DW1707/AR9565 shows yellow wifi indicator in network applet when turned on in 10.13.6, 10.14.6 and yellow ethernet in 10.15.2.
      Icon in desktop panel indicates looking but not find networks in all three.  Same wifi card detects available networks in linux without issue.
      The attached kext is labeled particularly for 10.13.6, but wifi is not being detected even in that version.  In all cases Atheros 40 kext is installed S/L/E as plugin in 80211 family kext with reparied permissions.
       
      Can anyone who has this working in sierra, high sierra, mojave or catalina please post what you did including any dsdt/config.plist mods?
       
      From what I have read in these forums the modded atheros 40 kext is supposed to work.  Is this failure to detect networks specific to any particular brand(s) of laptops?
       
      Any help appreciated.
      Thank you.

      I'm currently running MacOS Catalina 10.15.2
       
      Here's what i need help with: 
       
      1. Wifi (which previously worked on Mojave)  
      2. iMessage 
      3. FaceTime 
      4. AirDrop 
       
      Note: I can't do DSDT patching, tried it many times, and i failed. That's just beyond my capabilities. 
      I really hope someone can help me, i've been busting my head for days.  
       
      If possible, i would like to avoid bricking my os, because i need it for my job on the day after tomorrow. 
       
      My RunMe app file: https://mega.nz/#!yxlgiIwR!-XZsreXxNjxjQemXiQia2vcSfITWwr_AVciV2Kdb-ps

      Hi,

      I will be using ASUS ROG STRIX B360-I GAMING (mini-ITX) for my new build, and I'm trying to figure out the best solution for WiFi & Bluetooth. I understand that it should be possible to replace the WiFi/BT card that comes with the motherboard, but I'm confused about with what kind of card exactly. What connector will I need to be using? There are cards with miniPCI, M.2, some solutions require adapters, ...

      Is there a card I can simply swap in?

      Thank you
