Linksys WMP11 issues

So, here are my specs, and god did it take me forever to get this all working


Kalway 10.5.1 AMD patched with medevil nforce drivers-

Motherboard:Gigabyte GA-M57SLI S4 (Works)

Processor:AMD Athalon 64 2.4ghz Single Core (Works)

GPU:EVGA 8600gt 256MB (Works!)

Sound Card:Realtek ALC883 onboard (Works - no front audio)

Wireless Card: Linksys WMP11 8011.b PCI (No Worky)


So I read the HCL page http://wiki.osx86project.org/wiki/index.php/HCLPart

it says that editing the Airport2.kext will allow this card to work.

10.5.1 has no Airport2.kext

It does have a IO80211Family.kext so I input my Device ID, 4301, into this kext.

No luck. The WMP11 is a broadcom 4301 chip, any assitance would be much appreciated.


Dev ID:





My nforce 570SLI worked right out of the box with this version of Kalway, ethernet et al (I'm pretty sure its Kalway, just looked for a 10.5.1 AMD torrent)

My graphics card was a pain in the arse to figure out, but I used punk92's installer plus I added my device ID, 4021, in Geforce.kext and NVDAResman.kext and NVInject.kext, and removed all other Device IDs (remember to choose custom install and select an NVInject version). It works wonderfully now. For sound I used HDA_ICH9_ALC888.zip and Kext Helper b7 to install the 2 kexts contained there in.


Its awesome having MacPro power for less than $800. When did Apple become a corporate whore? Was it after Jobs got canned, or when Gates bought half the company?
