Broadcom 570x and 575x

Recommended Posts

GREAT STUFF! Got this working for a Dell Precision M90 running 10.6.7 retail with a BCM5752 (Vid 0x14e4 Pid 0x1600).

Based on Sunki's kext file, I replaced the "pci14e4,167b" string in the plist with "pci14e4,1600" and replaced all instances in his kext file with a hex editor from 7b 16 --> 00 16

 

Works perfectly both in 32 bit and 64 bit!

 

Enjoy.

 

I tried this on the vanilla 5701 kext for Lion and it didn't take. Can someone crack that nut?

 

PmgR, I have the exact same card as you, although lspci appends it with '(Rev 02)', if that matters.

 

Thanks guys.

 

Dragon Master, this thread has nothing to do with WiFi adapters. Head elsewhere.

Doesn't work for my 5752 on 10.6.8. Have you upgraded to 10.6.8 or 10.7 and got this to work? Thanks.
