IOReg, vendor_id is 168c, see [Guide] How to Make a Copy of IOReg. Look at the first post in this thread.

right still trying to solve this!lol toleda if i understand correctly i need to add the code into the dsdt from your first post and then from ioreg edit the code accordingly after where you have "quoted" i.e

"device-id",
Buffer (0x04)
{
0x2a, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00 ?

This stuff works when you do exactly what it says in Post #1.

believe me i have tried!lol i have a 9280 and the kernel panic is showing a 9380! the device id is 2a which should be native. so correct me if im wrong but the guide does specify that i shouldn't need to edit the dsdt or kext. i have gone over the guide may times and cant see where i am going wrong. i suppose im classed as a complete noob!lol it all works fine when i install the original dsdt with out the card installed then install it after shutting down. it reboots and then works. its when i reboot after that i get the kernel panic!

Use the device-id in post 1,
0x30, 0x00, 0x00, 0x00
It is internationally different ensuring the right kext loads.

I have the Apple Broadcom 94321MC, which works OOB but gives periodic connection drops and slowdowns, with the proper adapter. However, neither the card nor the adapter came with screws, so the card itself isn't screwed onto the adapter at all. Is this how most people do it? And if I replace it with a 9280 or a 9380 will the card still fit in the adapter?

Toleda,

I'm looking to purchase the new GA-H77N-WIFI. It comes with a a mini pcie card that has both wifi and bluetooth. Now, I thought I remember reading that this card does not work oob. However, can this card work with some dsdt edits or kext edits? Is there a simple wifi mini pci only replacement you would recommend for this card?

At this time, I do not know of a single combo card that works in OS X. Atheros would be a good candidate but there is no Atheros bluetooth support. Broadcom would be a good candidate as there are both wifi and bluetooth drivers. Unfortunately, the current Wifi driver looks for the Apple subsystem-id. The technique to relabel the card to Apple does not work with the new firmware on the card. Regarding you Intel combo card, there is no Intel wifi or bluetooth support in OS X. The best answer at this time is the AR 9280 half mini PCIE card with a USB bluetooth dongle.

The bluetooth I'm using on my build now is out of an older macbook pro spliced into a usb header cable plugged into the usb header. I can't really use that in my next build because I'm using the H77N-Wifi and it only has 1 usb header and ofcourse I want to use that for the actual USB ports. The one that tonymac recommends, does that one work oob with wake from sleep? I realize this is the wrong thread for a bluetooth question but I figured since you brought it up I may as well ask.
