BCM4350 cards - registry of cards/laptops interop

Recommended Posts

By popular demand and building on the guide I wrote for those cards some time ago + the subsequent extended feedback (mostly poor) on users experience, I thought it'd be useful to list those cards and laptops combinations that work or not. People may then opt for BCM450 cards with the best of knowledge. I invite all those who tested such cards to report their conclusions in order to build-up the registry.

 

Important note:

This is not a troubleshooting thread, there's already one here. This thread is only to report success or failure stating card model + computer model in order to complete a registry. Non-compliant posts will be deleted without any notice.

Notes:

DW1820A #08PKF4 1028:0023 reported to work Ok with:

  • pin masking (3pins @front, 2pins/3pins @rear) (there's one report stating masking makes wireless unreliable but Bluetooth work)
  • BrcmAirportFixUp kext
  • brcmfx-driver=1 boot option (or brcmfx-driver=2 to gain Auto Unlock as described here)
