D430 - 10.8.5 MLpost done - but no more wifi


Recommended Posts


I had 10.7 running on this D430, with wifi.
When I installed 10.8 (in frmabuffer/no qe/ci) I had wifi
after patching it with the MLpostfactor, i have a very snappy, responsive, smooth working system with graphic acceleration. but no wifi :(
It is not the intel card that comes with it but a Atheros.

Lspci gives me this as a AR928X
It is a pci-express full size,

thank you for pointing me in the right direction..
I used the guide from Hervé and the kext/extra that came with it

EDIT - 20Aug 2014:


Bootpack edited following report of missing Broadcom LAN kext. Pack is now fully loaded with all necessary kexts, modules and plists and no post-install EDP is really required for hardware fine tuning.

First, sorry for my english ...
I'm trying to install ML 10.8.5 on a Dell D430. I have change the wlan Intel card by a Broadcomm BCM94360CS2.
To install ML 10.8.5, I follow the thread https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/2467-dell-latitude-d430-intel-gma950-ml-with-full-qeci/, and use the Extra D430 ML.zip in the fisrt post.
The installation (Phase 1) works fine (except the full qeci of course). The wlan Broadcomm too :
- I can pair 1 iPhone with the bluetooth
- I can go to internet and the App Store with the wifi
But, when i install MLPostFactor (Phase 2), I lose the wlan Broadcomm (no Bluetooth, no Wifi) : no driver install ...



And the ethernet port is strange : ML said me it's Wifi !!!



and it's works with ethernet Lan like this : i'm writing this post with this configuration !!!


How can I do to make the wlan Broadcomm working ? What I have to do ? Which .kext I have to re-install ??


I don't know what to do ...


Thank you for help.

I guess it'll be because the Broadcom & Bluetooth fat-binary kexts from ML DP1 do not support the Broadcom BCM94360CS2 whilst the vanilla 64bit kexts from ML 10.8.5 do...


For instance, you'll find 2 x PlugIns of /S/L/E/IO80211Family.kext v5.0 under MLPF'd ML:

  • AirPortBrcm4331.kext (v6.0)
  • AppleAirPortBrcm43224.kext (v5.0)

and these don't support any BCM4360 cards (14e4:43a0). Broadcom BCM94360CS2 is supported by AirportBrcm4360 kext and that's an additional PlugIn of the IO80211Family kext of vanilla ML 10.8.5 for instance. It's not present under MLPF'd ML.


Little choice but change that card by an older model under 32bit MLPF'd ML, sorry.
