[SOLVED] Getting DW1550 / DW1560 / DW1830 to work on Sierra

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

finally I got my DW1560. Replaced the Intel 7265. I got the Bluetooth working but Wifi is just not working. Here is what I have done so far:

 

version (1.3.3 or greater)

 

* Installed latest version of FakePCIID.kext from Rehabman

* Installed latest version of FacePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext from Rehabman

* Installed latest version of BrcmPatchRam2.kext from Rehabman

* Installed latest version of BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext from Rehabman

 

Now they are all installed and the Bluetooth is working fine I can search for devices etc. However, the Wifi part is not working no AirPort device or whatsoever. What am I missing? BTW all of the kexts are located in SLE.

 

Thank you

If you're on Sierra, make sure to add this additional hot patch to KextToPatch

<dict><key>Comment</key>
<string>AirPortBrcm4360 - fcvo</string>
<key>Disabled</key>
<false/>
<key>Find</key>

<key>Name</key>

Open your Config.plist with a Plist editor (Xcode or plistedit pro). Add the patch in post #2 to KextToPatch section.

Add the 4 kexts posted in post #1 to /Library/Extensions and run the permission fix and rebuild cache 

 

sudo chmod -Rf 755 /L*/E*

sudo chown -Rf 0:0 /L*/E*
sudo chmod -Rf 755 /S*/L*/E*
sudo chown -Rf 0:0 /S*/L*/E*
sudo touch -f /L*/E*
sudo touch -f /S*/L*/E*
sudo kextcache -Boot -U /
 
Note: if you don't know how to edit Config with with plist editor, you could use Clover Configuration (latest version 4.43)
Add the highlighted patch as the diagram.

I just got a DW1560 card and I have the opposite problem: My wifi works fine, but I have no Bluetooth. No icon in System Preferences, and "No Information Found" in System Information.

 

I have BrcmFirmwareRepo.kext, BrcmPathRAM2.kext, FakePCIID.kext and FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext in /S/L/E, and I ran the commands here. Does it matter they are in /S/L/E and not /L/E?

 

Along with saying DW1560 on the card itself, it also says 2202024552-07 and CN06XRYC-773614-6CL-011Q-A02.

That would be an USB issue. Look under USB and see if your Bluetooth device shows.

Should show something like under USB 2.0 Bus / Hub:

BCM20702A0

Even if it's an M.2/NGFF card?

 

I checked in the USB section, the only device listed that wasn't obvious turned out to be the fingerprint sensor

Try adding FakePCIID_XHCIMux.kext if you have USB 2.0 and USB 3.0. If this doesn't work, then add USBInjectAll + port limit patch as well.

If only USB 3.0, then add just  USBInjectAll + port limit patch.
