Kext for Atheros AR946x/AR9485/AR9565 wireless cards

Recommended Posts

Still limited to 11Mbps? What does it show when you click on the Wireless icon of the FInder's bar whilst pressing [Alt] key?

 

Eg:

No, speed go up to 30+ Mbps using a/b/g access point as reported by speedtest.net. The same speed in Windows.

Here is the wireless status. Note that my card is Dell DW1707 with AR9565. Bluetooth "works" by modding a IOBluetoothFamily plist (but only after login to Windows (to turn it on) and restart to OS X).

Usually, it's done by adjusting the vendor and device id in the profile of an existing bluetooth model or -preferably- by creating a new one for your own device. You'd simply copy/paste an existing entry and modify the vendor + device ids (in decimal) to match those of your own module.

 

You may look this up in existing Bluetooth threads found in the R&D->Wireless and Bluetooth section.

Works as described in our Inventory thread. 'depends entirely on the card you have, especially the Country Code it is set to.

I have an interesting problem with ar9485 wifi card on macos mojave (10.14.6). I tried all of kexts suggested on different forums but I couldn't connect to a network.

 

WiFi is on, it seems to be working. When I click wifi icon it lists wifi networks. I click my network's name and I enter wpa2 password. It is trying to connect and after about 15 seconds shows password popup again with "connection failed" message. is this problem caused by kext or have i any other problem? I think kexts are working properly. Anybody have an idea about this?

 

Thanks...
