I forgot to said that the iwi2200.kext assumes that the interface is en1. this could cause the driver not to load.

 

first go to system preferences. te aiport must apear under the network pannel.

 

open the terminal and type "ifconfig". check for the en1 interface, if the aiport doesn't match en1 interface the driver will fail

 

i've updated the Apple80211.framework and IO80211Family.kext using pacifist (http://www.charlessoft.com/) and the apple intel 10.4.5 to 10.4.7 updates (don't use combo). don't use the finder to copy files (use cp -R or cp -r). can somebody post a scrip to do this steps?

 

 

the iwi2200.kext should work in kernel versions 10.4.4 / 10.4.8. i've compiled with suport for 10.4.4

glad to see progress is still being made, I can't go back to osx untill SOMEONE fixes mouse tearing. so I have very little incentive to test this yet . . . keep up the good work ;)

I would love to help with this project, whether it be testing or programming.. I have the 3495 in an HP Dv9000T Notebook.. Unfortunately I Just can't change the cards (because of HP).... So in other words I need this working as well

In my system 2200BG is en0, because, my Broadcom NetXtreme gigabit ethernet not working too (i mean, not supported, or i dont have information about support). How i can change it? Or i cant?

 

P.S. Sorry for my ugly english.

ok, for people who are like going "where the hell do i change the network interface of my airport to en1??" here's the solution:

 

1. go to /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration

 

2. type "sudo nano NetworkInterfaces.plist"

 

3. if there are any networks occupying en1, change the value for that network to en2, and so on. Make sure they dont clash

 

4. find your airport device in the plist and change its BSD name to en1.

 

5. reboot

anyone who wants to fix this right now and doesnt want to wait, you can go and find a new wireless pcimini card. The Dell Truemobile 1450 is reported to work isn't it and it will fit into any laptop basically that uses the 2200bg.

We know that but most people dont want to waste money on a new card, keep ur useless comments to urself. This is for driver development not comments like yours. The whole aim of the osx86 project was to run OS X fully without having to spend any extra money on hardware. Sorry if seem a bit harsh

seriously dude, some people can't even get new cards, people with laptops that don't allow such things.

 

anyways lets not spring up this huge flame war against the ignorant moron shall we?

 

any updates on the driver?

i think not every laptop also can change, if not mistaken HP got a whitelist and lock us from changing the card to others.correct me if i'm wrong

wow. way to be a jackass dude. its much easier to get a new card than to write a driver for an operating system in most cases so I was just trying to help. You don't need to be such a {censored}.

The point they're trying to make is that a) some people don't have anywhere to buy a new card and B) it is impolite and occasionally rude to post a "quick fix" in a development forum (I know this one from experience.)

So next time you or anyone else thinks about posting a "quick fix" where it shouldn't be posted, think again. It pisses people off.

 

EDIT: Also, don't just come in here with no posts and post {censored} like this. It's disrespectful.

i've just writed a driver for the 3945 card. i'll post it soon

 

i'd like to keep this project going with other cards. i could start a sourceforge project for the iwi2200 but i think it will be better to stay in this thread because of testing other cards.

 

i don't know if there are people using cards based on the ipw2100 linux driver. i'll post an driver for that to

Yep it would be easier, and allow for better feedback maybe?

Do you know if anybody has succeeded with the pro wireless 2915ABG? and the iwi2200 kexts?

This is a huge breakthrough. Can't wait to see it and try it out! Thanks so much for this. I'm sure there are a lot of people out there with the 3945 chipset that will be equally ecstatic. If you set up a Paypal account, I'm sure you could get paid nicely for your efforts.

 

Looking forward to not having to swap out my wireless card! Big ups to ya jalavoui!
