  1. How would one get wifi to work with the Dell Wireless 1520 Wifi Card
  2. Hi, I was wondering if anyone had solutions to two problems I was having with my otherwise successful E6410 installation of El Capitan. The first problem is the lack of sleep support. When I put the laptop to sleep it turns off the screen, accesses the hard drive for a bit, and never turns off. I have already disabled hibernation and deleted the sleepImage file. Is there any way to fix sleep? The second problem is the wireless adapter. I'm using a Broadcom BCM4311 chip (PCI ID 14e4:4311) from an old Latitude XT convertible. Is there any unofficial driver for this chip in Sierra? All my other wi-fi cards are Intel brand (unsupported) and I cannot buy a new one at this time. I would like to upgrade to Sierra, but if there is no support for my Wi-Fi card I will stay on El Cap. Thanks.
  3. Hi, i've installed on my pc MacOS Mojave but after installation my pc, sometimes, crash giving kernel panic. I came to the conclusion that it is a random kernel panic because sometimes it starting up and other times it isn't starting up and this is caused for my Wi-Fi chipset (BCM94350ZAE), also, after a few minutes, the PC freezes with cursor slowing and Wifi has disconnected P.S Sorry for my Bad English and my incompetence.

  4. I just got my new DW1510 arrived for replacement of Intel Centrino Advanced 6205. Wifi works great. Rebranded with Vendor: 0x106B / Product: 0x0093, following http://www.osxlatitude.com/rebranding-broadcom-802-11abgn-cards-as-airport-extreme/ But the problem is airdrop is kind of not working, It couldn't detect a another 6+ in the same wifi. Bluetooth DW380. Could someone help me in enabling airport? Thanks
  5. I installed the appropriate ethernet kext for my Dell Latitude D820 but when I go to the Network Setting in System Preferences, it says No IP Address and if I put one in... it still won't connect to the internet. I think I might have to configure everything by myself..because in Network Diagnostics, everything is failing. Oh well. Any help would be appreciated. EDIT: Solved using the D620_GMA950_LowRes Pack Ethernet Kext, found down below.
  6. Hello OSXLatitude. Lenovo has implemented a PCI device whitelist into the BIOS of Lenovo G505s (20255). This disables me from using wireless cards other than those authorized by Lenovo. I purchased a Broadcom BCM943225HMB (Hackintosh-compatible) from Amazon, and upon installing it, I sadly found out then and there. I have linked the latest BIOS update (v3.00) along with its readme for use if necessary. https://www.dropbox.com/sh/j6d5w032axhk4f5/AADM3EN2jON7N4Cb8tZQyVeya?dl=0
  7. So as you probably all know, when Apple released Mavericks they changed the wifi cards to only support the ones they had in the newer Mac models. Well I found a fix for this. REQUIREMENTS 1. A CustoMac (or Hackintosh, whatever you prefer) running OSX Mavericks 10.9 2. A Broadcom 43XX series Wifi card with kext installed in /E/E 3. This Download here 4. Hidden folders enabled (how to is right here) www.discussions.apple.com/message/23522493#23522493 What to DO 1. Extract the .zip file to the desktop 2. Open the folder contents 3. Copy airportd to /usr/libexec (Remember to backup the 10.9 one incase something goes wrong) 4. Restart 5. Go to the 10.7.3 folder and right click on the IO80211Family.kext 6. Open it with the included Kext Utility 7. Restart To get it working 1. Click on System Preferences/Network 2. Click on Assist Me 3. Click on Diagnostics 4. Click on Wifi and Continue 5. Select your Wifi network and enter the code 4. Done you can now click Quit and you should be connected NOTE: You will have to do this every single time you logout of your CustoMac Tested on Dell Latitude e6400 with Broadcom 4312 Wireless Card EDIT: This also works on 10.8 ( as said on the folder) Also you will have to replace the files again after updating.
  8. Hi All, First, I was amazed when I looked up this site and tried the tools... WOW all I can say. I was able to, within about 20 min, install Mavericks 10.9.2 with myHack and update with EDP. Very slick. Everything works wonderfully and I'm quite happy with the solution for my old D830. However, there are two issues I have come up against that I can't seem to find a suitable solution to. The first is that my Broadcom Corporation BCM4312 802.11b/g LP-PHY [14e4:4315] (rev 01) wifi card is not being recognized nor can I start it up. Yes I've tried the various drivers in EDP and none work and also the "debranding" trick and that doesn't work. Any suggestions would be splendid. Lastly, whenever my system goes into screen saver mode I cannot bring it back awake. I have to hard stop and restart the system. Any suggestions short of disabling the screen saver? Is there a driver perhaps I'm missing? The video card is a NVIDIA Corporation G86 [Quadro NVS 140M] [10de:0429] (rev a1) according to my lspci -nn output. Thanks for any helpful feedback in advance. Steve
  9. Help! I've almost got my 10.9 installation working like a charm on my E6530. Even the trackpad and keyboard and working, but even after replacing the original Intel Wireless with a DW1510 I purchased off eBay I've not been able to get the wireless working. System profiler can see networks and it looks like the drivers for the card are installed and working, but trying to get it to choose a network fails every time. The menu bar icon causes a beach-ball whenever clicked on and the System:Network prefpane won't let me choose a network (drop down is greyed out). Screenshots attached showing pretty much all relevant screens. I've rolled back airportd and I've also tried the work-around where you go via "Assist me..." to select the network, but that always results in my wireless password being refused (despite definitely being correct). I'm a bit at a loss. I've tried using MyHack to rebuild the kernel caches etc. Hasn't helped. My next step is to try and re-brand the card with an Apple device id, but I'm also struggling to get the card to rebrand, basically when I do the `find /sys/devices -name ssb_sprom` step there's no results returned. It isn't due to multiple entries either, there's just no results. I'm not sure whether this is related or not at the moment... I'm at the hair pulling out stage, so any advice or tips on what to check next would be gratefully received!
