For those of you with Atheros chip 168c,0013:

 

Mine worked great first reboot after following the guide, however, on subsequent reboots, no wireless netrworks were found.

 

After much experimentation, I find that by adding a couple lines to /etc/rc/shutdown/local I was good to go even after restarts and sleep. Here are the lines I added:

 

sudo rm /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kernelcaches/*
sudo rm /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache
sudo rm /System/Library/Extensions.mkext

 

Hope this helps others with Airport issues after restarts!

i have a dell wireless 1505 (its got support for wireless n) that isn't working (running 10.4.6). i know that some older models of dell wireless cards are supported as-is in osx... is there any way i could alter a driver for one of those to run my current card?

 

luckily my ethernet card works just fine though

Can someone tell me if the Dell wireless 1505 works out of the box with Mac OS X 10.4.9? (I really need to know because i want to buy something that works well but Dell dont have the Wireless 1500 cards anymore... )

Maybe the driver not for your hardware. What is your hardware?

SMCWUSB-G (Ez Connect 802.11g Wireless USB2.0 Adapter)

 

This Wifi adapter have a ZyDAS chipset, so Altheros doesn't support anymore OSX, anyway on this site you can have the drivers and also some interesting hack info.

 

the drivers here.

 

This drivers usually need to plug in the USB adapter after boot / sleep.

Thus, are we being patient in vain? Will it be 1 month or one freakin year? Though the Sigmatel 9200 had a happy ending!

 

I'm about to swap the 3945 out. What is the best g or n unit that has won't drain the battery, is a solid connector- and is available via the local computer shop?

          So you can lock this topic again @Allan Hopefully for a bit longer than a couple of weeks this time hehe.
    • ok, I am having a weird glitch with my Primary bios after modding it myself. can I get some help getting a Clean osmosis modded (for High Sierra and beyond) Bios Image?   https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Motherboard/GA-Z87X-UD5-TH-rev-1x#support-dl   the version I have always stuck with was F4, because the F5d.  I use a custom iMac 14,2 configuration that has been stable, the issues I have with stability come from not being able to get Access to the Bios, and prior to my attempt to mod it has been stable with up to High Sierra using clover, and up to Sierra with my very very old Ozmosis 894m F4 rom. I am not opposed to installing Ozmosis on the EFI Partition, But Gigabyte locked the Bios loading .efi Files, there is no shell to Force it to load HFS+ or APFS drivers.   so what I am asking for is assistance ether unlocking a Shell for my Bios, or getting a bios with the APFS, HFS+, and Ozmosis related files in it.   thanks again for everyones assistance. HBP
    •     Install from fresh again. This time without Tony Tools, follow some guide in this topic. Install IntelHD kexts as usual in S/L/E and thats it. Everything works again, except for backlight, I never could have this work, also got heating problem and when boots apple logo dissapears from like 5 seconds and then appear the login window... Any ideas on any of this????
