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.
Attach a copy of IOReg. [Guide] How to Make a Copy of IOReg.Really? OS X 10.8.2 About this Mac/System Report identifies the wi-fi card in my HP ProBook 4530s as an Atheros 9285 and the Bluetooth works. When I go to the Bluetooth section of System Report it does show the Bluetooth manufacturer as unknown.
No explanation; IO80211Family.kext has nothing to do with USB.It works under Windows.
EDIT: Back in July, I made it work using a modified IO80211Family.kext. It worked on the first boot, but after reboot, it just killed all my USBs. It does the same now.
Likely a reception/antenna problem. Reply with System Information/Network/Wi-Fi/Hey guys,
I'm back. Finally got my 9280 card working in the H77N-WIFI. Went to use it and found the throughput to be terrible. I'm not using any DSDT edits so maybe that's the problem. I put my old full height Broadcom card I mentioned earlier in and that's working as expected. Do I need the DSDT edit for the 9280 to load the right kext? I'm thinking yes but from what I read earlier, it should work out of box.
