Atheros AR5B95 Problem

30 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I've brought Atheros AR5B95 lately and I tried to configure the wifi to work

but with no hope!

 

Ive installed many kexts and with no luck !

so far I got the Card to be shown but when I hit Turn on Wi-Fi

nothing happens!

 

tried to remove the card , the configure for the wifi disappeared

Guides shown on the internet shows that the wifi will work after installing the required kexts only

any help?!

Hi,

 

SLE = / Sytem/ Library /Extensions ?

 

I used Ikext to install the fix 

Yes, System/Library/ Extensions

you have to rebuild the cache, then...

Or, you can use this to install, does everything automatically
You must, also, have set, CrsActiveConfig 0x3 (clover) or 103 (enoch / Chameleon)

Personally, I use clover, and I keep my kext in EFI folder

Thanks, but where i've to put " CrsActiveConfig 0x3" in clover ? (sorry it's my first installation, i've to learn now :), i use clover because every install with chameleon gets a unknow error at the end..

Strange...

I use the kext and works ...
However, you first have to change the config
Restart, then install the kext.
 
Try to put it in EFI/Clover/kext/10.11
Check in config.plist, System  paramenters, having inject kext = Yes
 

 

Restart and rechecked

Again, it doesn't work :\

 

Maybe it's the motherboard ? The keyboard wifi led is red, witch on windows turn off WIFI.

I tired to press the wifi key (f12) normaly and with fn+f12 but this opens the cd player

 

Here is the wifi card : (clic on image)

If you want the Atheros AR5B95 to work (nearly) OOB, a simple DSDT patch suffices! The ToledaARPT kext is now obsolete afaik.

http://forum.osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/2120-inventory-of-unsupported-and-supported-wireless-cards/

 

Me thinks it's much better than any add-on kext. Now I say this, I say nothing...

Hi Hervé, I agree on the patch to dsdt.
A newbie can know how to do this? ^_^
I think every person should grow their knowledge ... one step at a time
ToledaARPT, although outdated as you say, but  still works ...

 

This is the reason for my choice ... :P

 

 

@Gengik : I'm trying with the original El Capitain from the app store but uni bea st  stuck at Installing Bootloader :\

Install  bootloader in legacy mode
 

good job... :)

      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 have successfully installed Catalina but unfortunately my Ethernet not working. I have tried RealtekRTL8111-V2.2.2 because my Motherboard LAN is Realtek® GbE LAN chip (10/100/1000 Mbit).

      I also tried to install WiFi USB drive and it's working but not stable. It's connecting but after sometime net connection not working whether WiFi still connected.

      Please help me to get a stable net connection. If anyone gives me the solution then I will give you $10 as a gift. Please help me i need it badly.

      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.

      Hi,
       
      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.
       
      Hardware:
      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:
      AppleALC.kext FakeSMC_ACPISensors.kext FakeSMC_CPUSensors.kext FakeSMC_GPUSensors.kext FakeSMC_LPCSensors.kext FakeSMC.kext IntelMausiEthernet.kext Lilu.kext WhateverGreen.kext  
      I can see this during a -v before it goes blank.
