Alternative to Intel 4965AGN Wireless Card


If your Intel Wireless Card isn't working because the lack of kext. There's an alternative out there. I replaced my Intel 4965AGN for Aria Extreme N Mini Card on my Toshiba Satellite L 305 Series and It works out of the box. We all know how frustrated can be using a Hachintosh without Wireless connection, So I thought to share this with you. I bought mine on eBay for $35 bucks brand new (Just google it)

I updated my Toshiba L305 to 10.6.4 new release and my wireless connection were gone, Not longer working. The new update disable the wireless card for some reason, so I re-installed the 10.6.3 version back and the wireless card was recognized out of the box. Until I figure out was is causing the problem, I will stay away from 10.6.4. In the other hand, I updated my HP DV7t 3100 Series and the updated worked perfectly. Since every hardware has different configuration, every issues is different as well in every machine. (Posted on 06/20/10)

Aria Extreme N uses Mac OS X’s AirPort drivers and configuration tools, so configuration is completed in a few simple steps.Just plug and play.

It works with Mac and Windows OS and it has the same measurement as Intel 4965AGN (I don't know other cards).
