Hi,

i was having problem on fixing my Atheros AR5B195( AR9285 wifi + AR3011 bluetooth) which was not supported by Mojave and it was removed by Apple as per Rehabman Installation Guide.

So i edit the kext which can makes the WiFi Working in Mojave 10.14.

Kext Attached, use any kext installer and choose L/E, in my case i used Kextbeast, then restart and you will get the WiFi working again.

i hope this would help most of the people who is using Atheros kit.

Thanks.

This thread should be pinned so it can help other users, most of the guide saying that Atheros Wifi not supported anymore in Mojave 10.14 and this isn't correct.

Doubt that Atheros will work 100%, and doubt that using old kexts will be a long term solution.
Hence why this should not be pinned.

Best to replace WiFi hardware with supported Broadcom hardware.

For me now my wifi is working fine without any problem and since Elcapitan bradcom was the prefered kit but its expensive for some user and atheros is cheaper and will do the necessary.

This guide also work for Atheros :

01:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Qualcomm Atheros AR9462 Wireless Network Adapter [168c:0034] (rev 01)

I try to :

Install FakePCI_ID.kext, substitute the Info.plist with this ( https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Fake-PCI-ID/blob/master/injectors/AR9280_as_AR946x.plist)

But also I didn't see the wifi work .

Also try this ath9kfixup ( https://bitbucket.org/RehabMan/ath9kfixup ) but also not work .

What I have to do?
Install compatible Broadcom WiFi hardware.

I don't think it will ever be reliable.
Of course, you're free to do what you like.
