AW-CE123H not working in Catalina

Recommended Posts


What a relief. It's working. (I suspect the Wi-fi switch made the difference). Here's what I did... I rebooted and checked the BIOS:

  • Wireless Switch there are four checkboxes: WWAN, WiGig, WLAN, Bluetooth® - all are checked
  • Wireless Device Enable: Three checkboxes: WWAN, Bluetooth®, WLAN/WiGig - all are checked.

The switch on the side *was* showing red. I switched it back (on, not red). After a reboot, wireless started up, just as it's supposed to. To summarize this incredibly long journey (with huge thanks to you), these are the steps that seem to have mattered:


The Solution for Catalina on Dell Latitude E7440 laptop with AzureWave AW-CE123H wireless card:

  • Use the OpenCore EFI folder for Dell Latitude E7440 (https://osxlatitude.com/forums/topic/13155-solved-e7440-no-usb-port-working-with-opencore/?do=findComment&comment=101900)
  • Replace that original config.plist with the one from a few posts ago (https://osxlatitude.com/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=28462)
  • Ensure all the Wireless boxes are checked in the BIOS
  • Install Catalina 10.15.6 - it seems OK with the AzureWave card
  • Since no kext's were replaced, there was so no need to repair permission or rebuild cache
  • TURN ON WIFI SWITCH on the right side of the laptop

I used these OpenCore-safe tools: MountEFI and ProperTree and IORegistryExplorer when needed.


Thank you again!
