Click on the Apple in the upper left corner to access the Apple Menu. Choose System Preferences from the Apple Menu. Choose Software Update from the View menu. Click Update Now. Select the items you want to install, then click Install. Enter an Admin user name and password. After the update is complete, restart the computer if necessary. That's all there is to it! This should update everything on the computer, including that adapter.
Hello Michael and thanks for the info. Does this mean I am forced to do a "bundle" update? Is there a way I can do just the adapter? It is true that the latest firmware does require the latest version of OSX so you may very well be at the highest level you can run with your existing OS. That said, unless you are having issues I would not worry about it at all. I'm a firm believer in the old adage, if it ain't broke, don't fix it! Download eBook now! Eoin OSullivan Consultant Commented: First, I will confirm what Michael Dyer has said.. Apple DO NOT release driver updates individually unless there is a known bug or issue with a hardware component.
Restarted and there was no Airport anymore. Then I run this installer and restarted my sackintosh. And it worked!
Found my card as Airport and everything was working again. Well i got the airport in menu bar but when i open internet connect theres no aiport icon to configure, my id is It's nice to hear that my little script worked for you I do not know exactly what the point of AppleAirport2 is, but it gives me and lots of other users an error when the system is booted. For that reason this extension seems to be useless as long as you have an AirPortOne compatible card.
Can you see the AirPort? Is there another network connection? Are the MAC addresses displayed correctly. Could it be, since i had my id to airport2 my device ID? Testing the time Uphuk What does dmesg say? Can you give a dump of your syslog? I don't really think that the AirPort-driver is the cause for the crash A part for a strange permission issue whoami doesn't return anything on my setup the script did the job nicely. Thank you!
The results are the same no matter which distribution I use. Am currently on my desktop so don't have the exact error message in front of me, but basically it gives a kernel panic when it tries to load the IO kext. I have tried installing the kext from different versions including It is just very odd as this is the closest one can get on a Hackintosh to having a true airport card. This is extremely odd I have never experienced this behavior.
Did you try to delete the AppleAirPort2. Are you using a laptop internal Broadcom card or are you trying to install this card in a standard mini PCI-Express slot of your desktop PC's mainboard? Anyway, actually it should not matter at all, I could imagine that this is a PCIe related issue These is some threads that discussing the issue presario C series issue.
I don't know what happen with this laptop. I think this laptop has been cursed Maybe you can help. OK, I tried deleting the AirPort2. I have posted the text of the crash well as much as I had patience for retyping below:. Darwin Kernel Version 8. I have been able to leave my card in now without causing a kernel crash. I am still unable to get the card to power on though. Here is how I got around the kernel panic:. Just got a new HD so performed a fresh install with Uphuck 1. Leave the card out of the laptop for now. You will now be able to boot with the card installed and NOT get a kernel panic.
Unfortunately this still does not do any good as it seems like the only way to bring the radio online is through Windows.

Even Ubuntu sees the card, but can make zero use of it. BTW: Of course you could use this card with Linux. But the bcm43xx kernel module requires you to install the required firmware manually using bcm43xx-fwcutter. Since the firmware is not open source it can not be included in a standard Linux distribution.
Check the bcm43xx-fwcutter manpage Darwin probably crashes because it expects the card to be turned on. There has to be a pretty crappy software power switch in the card you are using. This is the only thing I could think of right now I am beginning to think this is NOT a problem with the card itself. I am thinking more along the lines of the mini PCI express bus is not being properly recognized. Unfortunately that is beyond my skill level to address. It would be great if one of the guru's looked into this problem.
It may be something as simply adding the proper device and vendor ID to the appropriate kext file. That is totally just a guess at this point though. I suppose the clencher would be finding another mini PCI-E wifi card and testing it. Thank yu for your script. I do have a concern though. It locked up my machine a few times trying it but 3rd time was a charm. Anyway, this script worked for 2 of my wireless cards. They are:. You need to be a member in order to leave a comment.
