Anyone have speed issue with BCM4360 ? I have 100 MBits internet, MBP is connected with 85MBits but my hack with 25 MBits (TX max 150). Upload is good on MBP and BCM4360. All is n 10.9.4 and N network.

I can't change region from US to PL (Poland, ETSI location instead FCC)

I currently am dual-booting OSX Mavericks 10.9.4 and Windows 7 on the same SSD and every time i boot into OSX and then Windows, my BCM4352 in the ASUS Z87i-DELUXE stops working in Windows, but I can reboot into OSX and it works fine. The only way I can fix it is to unplug my system, press the power button, plug it back in, then boot back into windows. It works fine with windows 8.1 but not 7 for some reason. Thoughts?

So I want to order this combo card which I understand works OOB. Seems like I can't find a proper PCIe to mini PCIe adapter for it. I've looked at this one, but the seller says that the card I chose doesn't fit. 

Can you guys recommend an adapter which I can use with the card?

DP7 -- another confirmation that we need a new binary patch.  I'm sure someone will come along with one.  Anyone mind explaining how one figures out how to do this?

Same problem here. Was fine in DP6, even though handoff functionality actually not working.

Hi Skvo,

 

Would you have one for Yosemite Beta 3?  The ones you have posted for the DP's were working in the beta 1 and 2.  Doesn't seem to be working in Beta 3 unless I screwed something up.

I wonder if there is any method to rebrand my bcm4352 card to apple's bcm4360 (device id, vendor id, subdev, subven) via hardware change or software (kext) hacks.

 

The reason is that handoff seems only work on apple's original wifi card. So it is likely Apple is checking the vendor ID etc. before using handoff functionality.

Hi,

I was looking for a replacement inside my Notebook. I saw at the beginning of the post that AR9380 has a native 100% support, can you confirmi this?

 

Also I was interested also in BCM943225HMB since it has Bluetooth, but which kind of operations are required for 100% work (Wi-Fi and Bluetooth?),

 

Otherwise other suggestions are appreciated, I'm using now Mavericks 10.9.5

 

Thanks!

Which card is better choice BCM94322HM8L or BCM943224HMS ? Any other suggestions ?

 

The best choice - BCM94322HM8L.

It will work in the system 10.10 with any Mac model.

 

BCM943224HMS - work in the system 10.10 with only used model MacBookAir5,1 and MacBookAir5,2:

Interesting. How about a Bluetooth module for a laptop? Any suggestions?

Skvo, is it possible to rework your whitelist patch so it doesn't KP the machine? using a iMac 14,2 profile with a BCM4352 dual mode card wifi + bluetooth 4.0

 

just wondering.

 

Great work on the 5Ghz patch, it is very stable and flawless.
