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?
I'm having real trouble getting Mojave installed on a clean drives.
I've followed the vanilla guides here, I've even tried Tony with no luck. Most of the time I was unable to even get to the installer, it would either hand at the `End RandomSeed +++++++++++++++++` or I'd get a kernel panic before reaching the installer.
Anyway I finally played around with the config until I was able to get it into loading the installer. I can now get all the way where the loading bar with the apple symbol gets to the end (takes about 20 mins), then the screen goes blank. I've uploaded my config.plist if anyone had any ideas.
I've disabled iGPU in BIOS.
Core i7 8700
ASUS Prime Z370-A
Radeon Sapphire RX570 8G (tried cable in Display port and HDMI)
32GB Corsair 3000Mhz
Samsung 970 Evo M.2. SSD (blank)
I've currently got the following Ktexts:
FakeSMC_ACPISensors.kext FakeSMC_CPUSensors.kext FakeSMC_GPUSensors.kext FakeSMC_LPCSensors.kext
I can see this during a -v before it goes blank.
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, ...
Updated to Catalina, and also have a new Apple Watch. Upgrade from Mojave went great, only updated some kexts for the Wifi/bluetooth to make bluetooth work.Airdrop, Handoff etc. all work like a charm. Sidecar is also enabled (but I don't have the iPad, so can't test).
However, the Apple Watch features are not there. I've went to System Report, and noticed in my Wifi that "Auto Unlock: True" isn't there at all. How come? I've read some success stories with my Wifi/BT chip, which is:
Broadcom BCM94352Z NGFF Dual Band 802.11ac 867M Wifi BT 4.0 Lenovo FRU 04X6020
I'm using these kexts from Headkaza, which were needed to get Bluetooth to work:
Wifi is working great, 5GHZ, full speed. So I'm pretty lost on how to get this "Auto Unlock: True" enabled.
Extra info about my system:
Processor: Intel Core i5 8400
Videocard: Radeon RX 570 4GB
Motherboard: ASRock Z370M-ITX/ac
Replaced my Intel wifi chip with the BCM94352Z
