Card is reporting all authorized 5 GHz channels. Select Join Other Network and add Network Name.

No network found.

Use "Show Networks", no 5 GhZ routers shown...

Tried testing the same card in windows 7, same thing. Only 2.4Ghz channels shown...The card must be defected.

Interesting. I bet in few years we will not longer battle in order to install OSX in our traditional computers... I just hope it will still be a better OS

You may need to set the Locale and Country Code properly. See here: http://www.tonymacx86.com/hp-probook/97428-ar9280-athr-unknown-locale-xx-eeprom-mod.html

My Atheros 9380 shows:

Locale: FCC
Country Code: US

If you are located in the US, then you should change to the same settings as mine is showing.

Hallo! J have wireless card Dell DW1515 AR9280 . This work Out of Box on ML 10.8.4
and Gigabyte Z77N-WiFi. Is only ONE problem. No connection from router when
wireless security is set to WPA/WPA 2 . This same card works well on WPA 2 on Windows 7.

Card works on ML only with disable security or WEP security. Is any patch or settings to
make WPA2 connection possible ?

If you want your wifi card works with WPA/WPA2, you need to downgrade to 10.8.3

Yes . WiFi works ! Update 10.8.4 broke WiFi WPA/WPA2 connections ! J have another WiFi in desktop Hackintosh - PCIXpress TPLink WN881ND and was this same problem after upgrade.

Its is Apple error in airportd file - on genuine Mac too.

Copy old version file airportd from version 10.8.3 to /usr/libexec/airportd in new version 10.8.4 and problem solved.
