Atheros AR9485 Kext

Recommended Posts

I have a Qualcomm Atheros AR9485WB-EG Wireless Network Adapter that I currently cannot connect to Wi-Fi with on my hackintosh running Yosemite 10.10.2. Is there a kext for that specific network adapter and if not, will there ever be one?

 

Thanks in advance for your help!

I'm not 100% sure on what kind of PC  you have but you can always try to run the (Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller 1.0) along side of what you are already trying to do. I have a ASUS x550ca core i5 with the same network config. as you do and that  resolved the issue for me. But if you read through some of the other threads many people are saying that card isn't supported.

The card listed in this post (Qualcomm Atheros AR9485WB-EG) is unsupported completely in OS X.

 

You'll need to get a cheap wifi dongle, I would personally recommend the TP-Link WN725N as it works fine in all versions of OS X and MacOS, from 10.6 to 10.12. It's $5 I believe.
