Hey guys.

Ive installed Mavericks to a Dell Inspiron 3520 Laptop for downloading newer Operating Systems by Apple.

But I have a problem with the WiFi & Ethernet/LAN. It doesnt detect any WiFi Networks or LAN Cables.

Any Recommendations like Kexts, DSDT Edits, ect.




Niresh Installation OSX 10.9/Windows 10

Intel Core i3 Processor 2370M

Dell Wireless 1703 802.11b|g|n Network Card - RealTek PCIe FE Familly Controller

Cirrus Logic HD Audio Speakers


DW1703 is based on Atheros AR9485; regretfully for you, that's not supported under OS X. You can only replace it by a supported model or use a supported USB dongle. You may look here for guidance.


As for your Realtek LAN card, you'll have to specify which exact model it is assess compatibility with OS X. Try and post its PCI ids; they should be listed in DCPIManager app for instance.
