    LionBroadcom43xxFamily

    You just have to try it.Don't complain that 4312 or 4315 does't work, its not on the above list. No model number thats not on the list will work.

    LionBroadcom43xxFamily

    Version 1.0

    2,026 downloads

    This KEXT enables most Broadcom 4300 series wireless adapters to work as Airport. I have used this on a couple different setups. Installation involves several easy steps. 1. download Kext Helper 2. back up original IO80211Family.kext 3. drag the new IO80211Family.kext onto Kext Helper. It will ask you for your password. This will install to /System/Library/Extensions If you wish, you can also add the file to /Extra/Extensions The following Chipsets should be supported BCM 4306 BCM 4309 BCM 4311 (Natively Supported) BCM 4315 BCM 4318 BCM 4320 BCM 4321 BCM 4322 BCM 4323 BCM 4323x Family BCM 4324 BCM 4325 BCM 4326 BCM 4328 BCM 4329 BCM 4342 The following card models should be supported Belkin F5D7000 Buffalo WL12-PCI-G545 Linksys PCMCIA Card WPC54G Dynex DX-BNBC Dynex DX-BGDTC Netgear WN311B (v1 & 2) Probably tons of other cards, as long as they have a supported chipset... I take no special credit for this KEXT. Even though I have written this KEXT and made this available to the community, this hack can be done by anyone with a text editor and a little know how. My goal here is to make a KEXT available to the community that can be installed and will work on as many Broadcom chipsets as possible, and to do it in a Vanilla friendly way.

    Broadcom 43XX Series Airport

    Honestly people, this will only work with the Broadcom 43XX series, the 43231 and the 43224 are not in the 43XX family, those are in the 43XXX family, different chipset. Not its not supported. Get one of the models that is on the list, rather than trying to make something else work.Also this is not designed to work with Lion. If you can get it to work with Lion great, but for Lion support, you really need to be altering a vanilla Lion kext to support more chipsets, not a Snow Leopard Kext.

    Broadcom 43XX Series Airport

    I just built another machine, again, I used the Netgear WN311B, which used the Broadcom 4321, it worked flawlessly. If you are having troubles, try installing to S/L/E with KextHelper. That may get some systems to work. Make sure you rebuild your extensions, and if you have an extensions.mkext file in the extra folder, delete it. If your chipset is not listed, don't expect it to work. I will try to see if I can't get more supported chipsets.

    Broadcom 43XX Series Airport

    As stated in the instructions, you need a copy of the kext you download here, and a copy of your existing IONetworkingFamily.kext in your /Extra/Extensions/ folder, and if you have a an Extensions.mkext in the /Extra/ folder, it will likely override any files in the /Extra/Extensions/ folder It is possible for it to conflict with other drivers, but for the most part it shouldn't since this is just a lightly patched Apple kext. If your Broadcom number is not listed, don't expect it to work. You can try manually editing the file to add more models. The unit I personally recommend though is the Netgear WN311B. Last I checked it was readily available, its known to work, its affordable, and it gets great reception. One little trick I did not mention, ran into this during testing, was that if the card for whatever reason isn't detected, try moving it to another pci slot.

    This KEXT enables most Broadcom 4300 series wireless adapters to work as Airport. I have used this on a couple different setups. Installation involves several easy steps. 1. Place the file Broadcom43XXFamily.kext into your /Extra/Extensions folder (see below if you do not have an /Extra/Extensions/ folder) 2. This driver has dependencies on the IONetworkingFamily. This means you need to install that .kext as well. Go to /System/Library/Extensions/ and find IONetworkingFamily.kext and copy (using copy and paste) it to the desktop. (You cannot usually paste directly to the /Extra/Extensions/ folder due to permissions blocking that action. 3. Drag the IONetworkingFamily.kext from your desktop to /Extra/Extensions/. 4. Restart. Your card should be automatically detected. If there is no /Extra/Extensions, just a file called Extensions.mkext, you will need to first create a folder called Extensions in Extra, then open and extract the contents of Extensions.mkext and place the contents into Extra/Extensions. Then remove Extensions.mkext (don't delete it, just move it to the desktop, you may need it later) (Optional) If you desire, you can also place the Broadcom43XXFamily.kext into your /System/Library/Extensions, but I have not found this to be any more reliable or stable than just locating it in the /Extra/Extensions folder, and there is always the potential for a conflict if you modify your system. Add the file by dragging it onto KextHelper. The following Chipsets should be supported BCM 4306 BCM 4309 BCM 4311 (Natively Supported) BCM 4315 BCM 4318 BCM 4320 BCM 4321 BCM 4322 BCM 4323 BCM 4323x Family BCM 4324 BCM 4325 BCM 4326 BCM 4328 BCM 4329 BCM 4342 The following card models should be supported Belkin F5D7000 Buffalo WL12-PCI-G545 Linksys PCMCIA Card WPC54G Dynex DX-BNBC Dynex DX-BGDTC Netgear WN311B (v1 & 2) Probably tons of other cards, as long as they have a supported chipset...

My goal here is to make a KEXT available to the community that can be installed and will work on as many Broadcom chipsets as possible, and to do it in a Vanilla friendly way. Added experimental rev2 kext which might add support for more cards. Still, if your card is not on the list or has a chipset not on the above list, don't be surprised if it doesn't work. If it does work, please post your Brand, model number, version number, and chipset.
