Excellent work jalavoui and coolstar. I have a supported card (AR9380) but it has an invalid regdomain (0x21); using your info I figured out how to patch AirPortAtheros40 to change it:


Comment:	Override regdomain (1 of 2)
Find:		83bb2008 00000674 64
Name:		com.apple.driver.AirPort.Atheros40
Replace:	83bb2008 000006eb 36

Comment:	Override regdomain (2 of 2)
Find:		66c78316 09000043 0066b843 00
Name:		com.apple.driver.AirPort.Atheros40
Replace:	66c78316 09000000 0066b800 00

Just had to change one JE at 0xb1b37 to a JMP pointing to 0xb1b6f (where rbx+0x916 and ax are set to 0x43), then used coolstar's patch (the second one) to change the regdomain from 0x43 (JP) to 0x00 (US - thanks to ReddestDream for clarifying).

 

10.11.5 patch (the second patch is identical):


Comment:	Override regdomain (1 of 2)
Find:		83bb2008 00000674 5f
Name:		com.apple.driver.AirPort.Atheros40
Replace:	83bb2008 000006eb 31

 

This is not working for me in 10.13.6. Anyone have an alternate find/replace?

For DW1707 (AR9565), when connecting to a mobile phone hotspot, the Tx rate is 11Mbps, and there is no way to access the Internet. I don't know why, can it be solved? Thank you!

Please update AR9565 patch for high sierra 10.13.6

patch is not working on 10.13.6

10.13.6 is normal, you can use this method:
https://github.com/black-dragon74/ATH9KFixup/releases

However, when connecting with some routers, there will be situations where you can't access the Internet. For example, I am connected to the mobile phone hotspot.

  • User -ath9485 boot arg for AR9485 and -ath9565 for AR9565 (If you don't use any boot args it will do the patching for AR946X by default)

 

Please include the boot tag in Clover's configuration file: -ath9565

It seems that ATH9KFixup.kext is not loaded properly. Please check if ATH9KFixup.kext is loaded normally?

Is the network card hardware broken? Try to see if this NIC is working properly under Windows or Linux.

Has anyone been able to get 9485 to work with ATH9kFixup on Mojave? Or even High Sierra?

 

If so, where exactly did you place the kexts? Clover? S/L/E?

 

I was never able to get ATH9KFixup to work

Can't have my Wifi at all. I am using Dell Vostro 14 3446, has AR 9565.
It doesn't even show up in the SysPref.

I tried almost every method mentioned in this thread and whatever could be found on internet.
