I am using v13 kext. But my system sometimes freezes and does not recover without reset. In addition, the internet is still rare, and after a certain period of time it is self-improving. The freezing problem is more important to me. How can I solve this problem?

I have  qualcomm atheros ar5bwb222. I've tried  v14, v15 it's worst

I did not test the bt in the high sierra.
 

ioreg -l |grep AR3

    | |   |   |   | |   |   "USB Product Name" = "Atheros USB AR3012 Bluetooth 4.0 Controller"

 

No, there was no need to edit.  linux firmware, Atheros-AR3012-036-0cf3

Did you find a solution to the freezing problem?

 

Here is the AR946X.v16.  (only for macOS Sierra).  It's a patched version so please don't use it with KextsToPatch because it might not work...

Hello,

 

I have uploaded a new AR946X.v16.plist.zip.  For those who downloaded AR946X.v16.plist.zip before, please download it again...

Still on the internet problems of breaking up continue. I'm using Kext. I do not use the Kext and patch method, is this the cause of the problem? I lost my original copy of airportatheros40.kext while doing copy and paste and I did not get a backup. How do I get the original kext?

Thank you.

It shouldn't make differences between the patched kext and the kextstopatch method but you're welcome to try it.

 

That's interesting...  Everything is working fine and more stable on my system (with v16).  I'm not sure what might cause internet problems on your system.  Does your system still encounter the freezing problem with v16?

 

You can downloaded the unpatched AirPortAtheros40.kext from the following link.

I don't have 10.10.5 installed.  You can download the patched kext from the following link to see if it works...

AR9565, like AR9485, should be able to get the maximum speed up to 54Mbs due to its 2.4Ghz, 1 stream.  For unknown reason, the speed seems to be limited to 11Mbs maximum...   :surprised:

 

As for the country code, I think it depends on the router you are using...

Yessssss Good news and bad news. It works, connect, but my system is freezing. Also my USB mouse is not working.

Do I need to do anything in my clover .plist? Any patch or set up?

oops...  Did your system freeze before it connected to internet or after it connected to internet?  Not sure about the USB mouse...

 

I don't think you need to do anything with the clover plist while using the patched kext...

I am sorry for my delay! I was trying to fix my problem and I think is working great now. I tried save mode and everything works just fine so I realized it can be some other kext. I need to make more tests but looks like stable and the download also works fast as was with Ethernet. I will give you more information in few hours.

Works with Yosemite 10.10.5
