Atheros AR9285 and (maybe) Intel HD Graphics (DSDT)

Hi!  I'm not that strong when it comes to editing DSDT, and I'm currently having trouble with enabling my wifi connection on Mountain Lion.  Before, I was stuck with the trash Ralink RT5390 due to my laptop's wifi whitelist.  The only card that is 100% compatible with OS X in the whitelist was a certain HP-Branded of the above Atheros AR9285.  After two failed attempts to order the right one off of Ebay, the third one (arrived this week) worked like a charm in my laptop.  It might also be important to note that I don't have bluetooth, just wifi.


Anyway, when I booted in OS X, the wifi icon came up, but I got the dreaded "No hardware installed".  I've attached my DSDT as I'm not sure if I implementing the hacks correctly.  Also, if anyone is able to look at this guide's hack section and figure out how I can get rid of Natit.kext, more power to them, but my main goal (as I currently have graphics working with Natit) is to fix my wifi issues.  I've tried several kexts, but to no avail.  Can anyone help me with this?  Thanks in advanced!


P.S. I don't want to have to upgrade to Mavericks because even though it's free, Mavericks has been reported to be really buggy with the Intel HD Graphics, and I want to wait for the bugs to be sorted out.
