BCM943602CS combo card, Bluetooth not working

19 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I purchased a BCM943602CS Wi-Fi Bluetooth card off amazon.co.uk. I have Wi-Fi working but Bluetooth is not.

If I scan for devices, none are seen. I connected a Magic Mouse 2 via USB to setup. The OS says setup was successful, but after the USB cable is disconnected, I can't connect to the mouse from the Bluetooth menu. How can I confirm it is using Bluetooth on the PCI card? These were the same issues as using Bluetooth on the ASUS Maximus VIII Formula motherboard, which is why I purchased the card.

The machine is dual boot, both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth work fine in Windows 8.1 Pro with the magic mouse 2 successfully setup.

Does anyone have any trouble shooting tips?

Cheers, Paul

I tried using the attached Clover folder, but the machine reboots due to a kernal panic. A video of the boot in verbose mode is uploaded in the box.com folder noted above.

 

I am running 10.11.6, I notice all the kexts are in 10.12 folder, I tried renaming this to 10.11, makes no difference.

 

Can you clarify what you mean 'use Clover folder in UEFI mode'. I machine is UEFI based.

 

Cheers, Paul

It booted after replacing the DSDT however, it still has the original problem: The mouse pairs via USB, but does not work. Can't see any other BT devices.

just put kexts

reboot

try it

I tried this as well as using the Kext Utility to add them to the Extensions folder. Both times the same result.

 

Thanks for all your suggestions thus far, any other ideas?

Use DSDT above  DSDT.02 and add two kexts in Clover/Kexts.10.xx

Arquivo Comprimido.zip

Remove all kexts about bluetooth inside ur clover folder

Post Ioreg, extract with Ioreg Explorer

I finally got bluetooth working.

 

Turns out none of the extensions were needed... I turned off the motherboard bluetooth controller in the UEFI and viola it works!!!

I have same Wifi BT card, and a Gigabyte AORUS Z370 Gaming WIFI motherboard rev.1. I have your exact problem but I can not find the option.

I am having same issue on my setup. @MaLd0n will your process above work for other Broadcom cards? Using a slightly different card BROADCOM BCM94352Z. 

Is there somewhere that I can read up on why it is better to put .kext files in the /others folder instead of /library/extensions like some guides say? I know that Morgonaut has said on her beginners guide that it is better to keep everything Apple Only in the /library/extensions folder but seems like many do not necessarily agree.

      Hello,

      I've updated via system preference fro 10.14.2 to 10.14.3 successfully. However, I've lost location services for Siri and Maps.

      Anyone else?

      I've tried a little trial and error troubleshooting but no luck...
      SysPref->Privacy->Location Services is enabled with all settings checked. I've tried to disable and enable, but not luck.

      I tested booting from previous backup of 10.14.2 install/uefi (pre update) and Location Services worked.

      Prior to OSX update I also updated to latest clover, WEG, Lilu, AirportBrcmFixup, AppleALC.

      So I tested by downgrading all of the above one at a time to the previous state, and still no Location services on 10.14.3

      I've used kext utility to repair any broken kexts.

      I've also tried forcequiting from activity monitor:
      com.apple.geod

      And I've Try Deleting:
      Library/Preferences/com.apple.GEO.plist
      Library/Containers/com.apple.geod

      I've booted into a guest user and this did not allow location services either.

      My build is using a native Broadcom BCM94352Z Dell DW1560 and BrcmPatchRAM2.kext + BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext

      Any thoughts?

      Hi,  I replaced the H170N-WIFI onboard bt card with the ASUS USB BT400 dongle. It works but Handoff and AirDrop won’t work. I install all kexts for fixing Broadcom card, but in System Information, in Bluetooth section I see “Handoff: no”. Anyone can help me? Sorry for my English!
       
      my build
      mobo: H170N-WiFi 
      cpu: i5-6500
      gpu: gtx 1060 6gb (not work on Mojave)
      Ram: 16Gb ddr4 2133 MHz

      Breaks out my shield and gets ready for the flac
       
      I deleted a line out of the root which was associated with my Bluetooth device
      sadly like all things I now realize I shouldn't have done that tried to find the deleted line and well, was not able to.
      I now have no Bluetooth devices even when I plug in different usb Bluetooth dongles.
      so my question to those with more  wisdom is :- is it possible to extract the missing line from the Mojave installer and re install it
      or is it a re install only?
      I am not too concerned if it is a re install, we all learn and even an old git like me still learns. I did try x code Bluetooth to re install that way
      but for some reason it did not work.
      remember go easy you will be an old git one day
      thanks and waits for the stick
