You need to verify your vendor id and device id. The vendor id should be 14e4. The device id should be something like 43xx.


Go into Windows -> Device Manager. Find Network Adapters and then find the Wireless device. Get Properties on it. Then click on the Details tab. The vendor id is after VEN and the device id is after DEV.


Next, use this guide: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=23684


But there is a typo in the guide. To edit the required file, go into Terminal in the Utilities folder and type this command:


sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleAirPortBrcm4311.kext/Contents/Info.plist
