Asus PCE-AC68 Can't turn wifi on High Sierra

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have what's been said to be a natively supported wifi card, but for the life of me I cannot get it working properly with High Sierra. It is detected in DPCIManager but the wifi symbol at the top is hollowed and I can't turn it on.

 

Here's some basic info about my hackintosh. It's running an i7 9700k with an MSI Z390-A PRO, a GTX 1070, and it's SMBIOS is running as an iMac 18.1


Someone else has posted here about this with an ac66, which I think is very similar and uses the same device number 43A0. But he didn't get his problem solved in the end. And I have looked up this problem in a million different ways, I haven't found a solution that works from any yet.

 

I've tried a large amount of different kext patches, kexts (fakepciid, airportbrcmfixup, etc), changing fake ID, modifying kext info.plist files, and every combination of those, none have gotten it to properly work.

 

I have gotten it to work in one way but it's so unstable that it's unusable. Using the IO80211family.kext from yosemite works, but then it will randomly freeze about 10-15 minutes in, and then it'll not boot 9/10 times, and when it will it'll freeze on the login or right after. It gives errors about out of date kext, only way get back in is by reinstalling. So I figure this method is unusable.

 

I'm just stumped on why a supposed confirmed working out of box card doesn't just just work, even with every amount of tweaking and adding kexts. I'm in my 4th day of almost nonstop testing and researching on how to fix this, and I'm too stubborn and determined to just buy a different card. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. :D

Remove all add-on or old kexts you may have installed/injected/cached for this card and revert to the full vanilla IO80211Family kext with nothing else.

 

Then post:

  1. a zipped copy of Clover folder (without the Themes subfolder)
  2. a zipped saved output of IORegistryExplorer app
  3. a zipped copy of your saved SystemInformation data
  4. the list of add-on kexts you may have added to S/L/E and/or /L/E

 

PCE-AC66 and PCE-AC68 are indeed built on the Broadcom BCM4360 chip, carry id 14e4:43A0 and, indeed, normally work OOB. Plenty of reports to that effect for the last 5 years.

 

On the performance side, it's usually a matter of getting the card recognized as an Airport Extreme card rather than a 3rd Party Card. There are various ways to achieve this from good old use of Rehabman's old FakePCIID kexts to more recent Lilu + BrcmAirportFixup kexts.

Sorry but you've not done as asked and kept all those Broadcom-related add-on kexts in /S/L/E (and there are quite a few of those making a total mess as a result... :thumbsdown_anim:). I cannot assist until you revert to a full vanilla system as far as Wireless services are concerned. I believe I was quite clear in my previous post.

 

Until you do that, good luck. Just know that throwing all sort of things at OS X/macOS in the hope that things will work usually results in disaster.

Looking much better indeed but card is Off. Can you try and turn it on from the Network PrefPane rather than the Finder's bar Wifi icon? Any BIOS settings that would turn off the card?

 

I see that your Wireless card registers as en0 with no other card listed. Have you no LAN available or available?

It doesn't turn on from the PrefPane, when I click "Turn Wi-Fi On" the "Network Name" drop down blinks for a frame, then nothing happens. I don't have any bios settings that'd turn it off, it works in windows fine and did work in mac with yosemite kexts.

 

I can't use LAN otherwise I would and not deal with this. If it shows I have no lan device at all it might be because I removed all internet related kexts in this reinstall so I wouldn't mess anything up.

 

Also without some of those previous kexts (not sure which ones fixed it), I can't boot half of the time. Around where it's loading the card kexts or doing something with the card it'll freeze and I have to force power off hoping I get lucky and it doesn't happen again. Of course I can fix this but I assume this happens because of something related to the wifi not working.

 

Edit: Nah I'm done. Screw hackintosh man, every thing is such a pain and requires so much time for such a small novelty. Thanks Herve for taking some time to try and help me, it's much appreciated.

      What you need to install

      - Running install of macOS on VMware -> Downloaded version 10.13 via torrent (search by "10.13 vmware" torrent). You can use a real Mac of an friend. My method only tested on Mavericks (10.9) and above.
      - One USB flash drive of 8GB or bigger.
      - macOS High Sierra install app -> Downloaded via App Store inside the virtual machine. Downloaded version 10.13.2.
      - CloverEFI -> Also download inside the virtual machine. I used build 4334.
      - DSDT patch skills -> Needed to battery works. How to patch DSDT. Or you can download mine DSDT below, but would not recommend.


      How create the install disk
       
      Prepare flash drive:

      Format the disk with GUID partition mapping and name it "Install".

      - Open Disk Utility.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination flash drive, then Erase.
      - Name: Install, Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and Scheme: GUID Partition Map

      If the Erase popup in Disk Utility don't work. Close it and run this in terminal:
       
       
      diskutil eraseDisk JHFS+ Install /dev/diskX X is the number of the destination disk. Use "diskutil list" to discover.

      Create install files in flash drive:

      Open terminal and run this command:
       
      sudo /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/createinstallmedia --volume /Volumes/Install --applicationpath /Applications/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app --nointeraction This will take about 30 minutes.

      Install bootloader:

      You need to format the EFI partition of the install flash drive to FAT32:
       
      sudo newfs_msdos -v EFI /dev/diskXs1 X is the number of the disk. Use "diskutil list" to discover.
       
      Download the CloverEFI (used 4334) and install with this options on "Install macOS High Sierra":



      Options:
       
      - Install for UEFI booting only
      - Install Clover in the ESP
      - Drivers64UEFI - CsmVideoDxe-64
      - Drivers64UEFI - OsxAptioFixDrv-64

      Adjust the config.plist genereated:

      Will be created a partition named EFI. Edit the /EFI/CLOVER/config.plist inside this new partition and change those values:

      - Alter value: GUI - ScreenResolution to 1366x768
      - Rename key: Graphics - #Inject -> Inject
      - Alter value: Graphics - Inject - ATI - FALSE
      - Alter value: Graphics - Inject - Intel - TRUE
      - Rename key: Graphics - #ig-platform-id -> ig-platform-id
      - Alter value: Graphics - ig-platform-id to 0x01660003
      - Alter value: KernelAndKextPatches - AppleIntelCPUPM to TRUE
      - Rename key: #KextsToPatch -> KextsToPatch
      - Remove all <dict>...</dict> in <array> inside KextsToPatch
      - Add <dict/> bellow in <array> inside KextsToPatch:
       
      <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>HD 4000 brightness fix</string> <key>Disabled</key> <false/> <key>Find</key> <data> EAcAABAHAAA= </data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleIntelFramebufferCapri</string> <key>Replace</key> <data> EhMAABITAAA= </data> </dict>  
      P.s.: I will provide below my config.plist as attachment.
       
      Add essentials Kexts:

      Download those Kexts and put in /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.13/
       
      - Download the Smart Touchpad kext from here. I used the version 4.7 beta 5.
      - Download the HWSensors dmg and use the FakeSMC.kext from inside. I used the version 6.26.1440. This is very important. Can't boot without it.

      Put the Clover installer on the flash drive too.
       
      Now you can start the instalation without problem (I guess).
       
       
      BIOS Setup Configuration and Installation

      Bios configuration:
       
      - Shutdown the ultrabook and insert the flash drive on the left side on upper port (on the side Keystone hole).
      - Power on with F2 pressed to enter BIOS setup.
      - Go to "Save & Exit" and press "Restore Defaults".
      - Go to "Advanced" tab and change VT-d to Disabled.
      - Go to "Save & Exit" again and select "Save Changes and Exit".
      - When ASUS logo appear, press and hold ESC to enter Boot Menu.
      - Select the flash drive named with UEFI prefix. In my case "UEFI: KingstonDataTraveler 2.0PMAP".
      - The clover menu will show. Use the arrow keys to mark the flash drive. The option name is "Boot OS X Install from Install macOS High Sierra", then press Enter.
      - If you did everything correctly, you will see the installation screen.
      BUG Note: I delete all entries from the list. With that, I could not add anything else. It just didn't work. I had to put some USB device so the list is not empty, so I can add a new entry. Strange thing...

      Format destination disk:

      Format the disk with GUID partition mapping and name it "HD".

      - Select Disk Utility in the list, then press Continue.
      - Click in View, then "Show All Devices".
      - Select the destination Disk, then Erase.
      - Name: HD, Format: Mac OS Extended (Journaled) and Scheme: GUID Partition Map

      If the Erase popup in Disk Utility don't work. Close it and run this in terminal:
       
      diskutil eraseDisk JHFS+ HD /dev/diskX X is the number of the destination disk. Use "diskutil list" to discover.

      Close Disk Utility.

      If the destination is SSD: Start installation without APFS conversion:

      Open Terminal and run:
       
      /Volumes/Image\ Volume/Install\ macOS\ High\ Sierra.app/Contents/Resources/startosinstall --volume /Volumes/HD --converttoapfs NO --agreetolicense This will take about 20 minutes.

      If the destination is HDD: Start installation normally:

      Select "Install macOS", then Continue.
      Follow instructions in screen.

      After install:

      After first part install the system will reboot.

      In Clover main menu, press enter in "Boot macOS Install from Install macOS High Sierra" once again

      The second part of the installation will begin. This will take 16 minutes.
       

      Post installation

      Install bootloader:
       
      When the second part of install finish, the system will reboot again.

      After performing the user initial setup and go to the desktop, you need to install Clover on internal disk.

      Open the Clover installer inside flash drive that you copied before.

      Use same options above but choose the system partition this time.

      Now you need to replace the EFI folder inside your internal disk EFI parittion with EFI folder inside flash card EFI partition.

      The flash drive EFI partition is unmounted. Mount with "diskutil mount /dev/rdiskXs1". To know what X is, use "diskutil list", most likely is 1.

      Add Clover entry to UEFI:

      Now remove flash drive and restart the system. With F2 pressed to enter UEFI BIOS.

      - Go to "Boot" and press "Add New Boot Option".
      - Select "Add boot option", write CLOVER and press Enter.
      - In "Select Filesystem", choose the option that contains "HD". Like "PCI(1F|2)\DevicePath(Type 3, SubType 12)HD(Part1,Sig2a0127c1-ea5d-44d3-8967-57e59c1f0e3b)".
      - Select "Path for boot option", write EFI\BOOT\BOOTX64.efi and press Enter.
      - Select "Create" and press enter.
      - Go to "Save & Exit" and select "Save Changes and Exit".

      Others Kexts:
       
      I strongly recommend always use newest versions. If you are too lazy, I attach on end of the post.
       
      Ethernet: AtherosE2200Ethernet 2.2.2
      Sound: VoodooHDA 2.9.0d10 (.kext only)
       
      You need to select the output there in System Preferences after reboot.
      Battery: ACPIBatteryManager by RehabMan (version 2017-1001). You need to path DSDT (below).
      Integrated Camera: AnyiSightCam
      USB 3.0 + Touchscreen: Attached USBs.kext below
       
      All kexts will placed inside /EFI/CLOVER/kexts/10.13/, mount again this partition (diskutil mount rdiskXs1) for it.
       
       
      Fine Adjustiment
       
      Enable FN keys
      Open "ApplePS2SmartTouchPad.kext/Contents/Plugins/ApplePS2Keyboard.kext/Contents/Info.plist":
      - Alter value: Fn keys Layout to ASUS
      - Alter value: Fn keys Mode to 3
      - Alter value: Preferences - Swap alt and windows key to false

      Sleep work, but Hibernate not. Disable it:
       
       
      sudo pmset -a hibernatemode 0 HDMI Audio
      Add <dict/>'s bellow in <array> inside KextsToPatch, in config.plist:
       
      <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>HDMI-audio HD4000 0x01660003, port 0406</string> <key>Find</key> <data>BAYAAAAEAACBAAAA</data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleIntelFramebufferCapri</string> <key>Replace</key> <data>BAYAAAAIAAAGAAAA</data> </dict> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>HDMI-audio HD4000 0x01660003, port 0304</string> <key>Find</key> <data>AwQAAAAEAACBAAAA</data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleIntelFramebufferCapri</string> <key>Replace</key> <data>AwQAAAAIAAAGAAAA</data> </dict> <dict> <key>Comment</key> <string>HDMI-audio HD4000 0x01660003, port 0205</string> <key>Find</key> <data>AgUAAAAEAAAHBAAA</data> <key>Name</key> <string>AppleIntelFramebufferCapri</string> <key>Replace</key> <data>AgUAAAAIAAAGAAAA</data> </dict> DSDT Patchs
       
      First of all, extract your system DSDT.aml pressioning F4 on Clover boot menu. Will be stored in /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/origin.
      Copy to /EFI/CLOVER/ACPI/patched and apply following patchs using MaciASL:

      Updating to 10.13.2:

      Just install Clover 4334 or more recent before install of the update.


       
      To do list
       
      - Replace VoodooHDA by aDummyHDA (AppleHDA Patcher).
       
      Can't make mic/output jack work. I don't know how fix the layout.
       
      - Hibernate
       
       
      Hibernate not work. The system not resume. (temporarily disabled with "pmset -a hibernatemode 0")
       
      Ps.: Sleep work.

      - Brightness and Audio adjustment by FN keys
       
      Need time to search DSDT patch.
       

      Attached files used in the installation. For God's sake, always use the newest versions.
       
       
      And last but not least
       
      I would like to thank the following community members, by making these dream possible:

      Hello,
      When I open a pdf or image file, a color overlay is created on the images and files as below. It can be temporarily resolved by enlarging or shrinking the image, but re-creating it. What is the problem and how should I fix it. The specifications of my system are as follows:
      System: Dell Optiplex 780
      CPU: INTEL Core2 Dual Q9550
      GPU: ATI Radeon HD 5040 1024 MB

      How to use
      1. Update BIOS to version 2.02. Secure boot must be disabled, Touchpad settings - Advanced
      2. To make a bootable flash drive, you can use my EFI directory (link at the end of the message) Tested for High Sierra 10.13.6 (17G8030) && Mojave 10.14.6 (18G95) && Catalina 10.15 (19A558d) installation.
      Note: you must insert your own SeralNumber && MLB && ROM in the config.plist file.
      3. After installation, just copy EFI directory from flash drive to the system drive.
      4. Install kexts BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext && BrcmPatchRAM2.kext to the /Library/Extensions and update system caches.
