AR5008 in T60 (should be the same as MBP) not working

Hi all,


I installed MAC OSX 86 on an IBM/Lenovo T60 (2007-FVG)


With the help of this great guide, most went great, except for the wireless card




After searching for the model for 2 days I think I figured out what is inside:


ThinkPad 11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN Mini Express Adapter This is a WiFi Adapter that is installed in a Mini-PCI Express slot



  • Chipset: Atheros AR5008 or Atheros AR5418
  • Integrated Mac Processor and Radio Chip: Atheros, unknown model
  • IEEE Standards: 802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g, 802.11n (draft)
  • PCI ID: 168c:0024

If I search for the card on the internet i find it's the same card used in the Macbook Pro.


How come that this doesn't work with MAC OSX86 then??


Please help me out!


Thx and greetz


I tried some things regarding other Atheros cards (5005), but no luck
