Rebranding Broadcom BCM4321 [SOLVED]

Recommended Posts

Hi:

 

I am ordering a Broadcom PCI-e card for my D630 from eBay.

Will a Broadcom BCM4321 REV 0A work. Do I need different codes?

 

Thanks

Hooked up and running

 

I have only 150 transmit rate max from Wireless N source

 

Tried switching antennas; I have three however (white, black and gray)

and only two contacts on the card.

 

Which two and what positions are optimal?

 

Thanks,

Gray is not used. White and Black are used, usually connected above the respective arrows on the label (Usually the black gets attached above the solid black arrow and the white lead above the white arrow (outlined with black)). Some have reported better results switching the two. As for transmit speed, 150 MB/s is maximum for a 2.4 GHz router at N speed. A 5 GHz N speed router is capable of 300 MB/s.

Hi!

 

My rebranded BCM4321 is almost working on Yosemite.

Only Wifi is working...

What can be the reason off not seeing BT on system?

The Yosemite Bluetooth kexts needing patching with the PCI ids of your card maybe?

I did that, (hope in proper way).

But still in DPCIManager i cannot see any BT device...

 

I can see my BCM4321  802.11a/b/g/n as:

Vendor: 14e4, Device: 4328, Subv: 106b, Subd: 008b.

BT devices are usually reported as USB hardware, so never listed in DPCIManager or lspci output... Check your SysProfiler.
