Hi,
My Azurewave BCM94352hmb arrived today and i installed it right away. It is fully working but i found that the speed is very low. My internet speed is about 12mb/s upload and download, but i can only get 2-4mb/s on my hackintosh. I tested with my phone, the wifi speed can get up to 11mb/s. So I check the wifi information, it seems that it is not connected to 40MHz.:banghead::banghead:
Also, my wifi is 2.4GHz Wireless N, but the system reported PHY mode as AC

How can I fix this? The wifi speed is freaking slow right now
:banghead::banghead: Please help me!!!



EDIT: Got higher speed in windows 10. Wifi speed in windows is doubled comparing to os x.
May be changing the country code will help? How to change the country code to Hong Kong? I have found some tutorial online but the are all US and XT.

EDIT2: Upload speed seems to be normal. Download speed is very low in os x

Hi, toledo.

I am trying to get my bluetooth to work, but with no luck.

1. BCM94352HMB, wifi working in 2.4Ghz, no BT.
2. OSX 10.10.3, i5 3570T, AMD HD7770, Zotac H77-ITX-AE, onboard wifi+BT card is replaced with BCM94352HMB.
3. Using clover patch and toledoAPRT.kext

Required debug info is attached.

Any advice is appreciated!

Thanks~
BT is finally working.
I suggest this step be added into the required instructions for BCM94352HMB. Or it depends on other conditions?
It is already in post #1. You missed and/or skipped it.

On my brand new HP ProBook 450 G2 I managed to install Yosemite 10.10.3 with CLOVER update 3202 native UEFI. Almost everything working fine except internal WiFi (external TpLink USB dongle was ok)
I allready swapped, in order:
two different Azurewave AR5B95 and one Atheros AR9280 (AR5BHB92) with the same results. Network card recognized but no wireless device are detected at all. Also manually entering the SSID and password doesn't seems to work...:banghead:

I reinstalled clover, replaced the original kexts from a working OSX 10.10.3 (on a TM Apple mac mini), deleted all the system preferences "network related" without success.

The device seems to be correctly recognized by the OS

In the system information also seems to be correctly recognized

System logs shows scan in progress every time I enable the wifi

Screen Shot 2015-04-27 at 22.03.25.png

When I try to create a wireless network by myself i also get an error I don't understand in the wifi logs.

I don't know what else attach more... Any of you that had the pleasure to get these adapters fully working right OOB please, help me finding what is driving me nuts.:crazy:

Hibernation disabled?
@RM,

I disabled it a long time ago with :-

Code:
sudo pmset hibernatemode 0
And also have
Code:
<key>NeverHibernate</key>
<true/>
in Clover config.plist.

Am wondering if there is a method to change/re-flash the firmware on the card with new CC ?

It just doesn't make any sense, but its definitely something to do with the 10.10.3, i restored 10.10.2 timemachine backup and its does not suffer from this issue when switching between SSID's

Have just got a Asus Z97I-Plus ITX mobo for a new build which comes with AW-CE123H already fitted to the mPCIe so will see if that also suffers from the issue.

Cheers
Jay

Hi rehabman! Do you mean provide us with a full troubleshooting file? I read the guide and followed every step I tought it was significant for my hardware configuration. Do you think I'm missing something so obvious? I will appreciate furthure hint to get rid of the issue.

Just to be sure, check it. Updates tend to turn it back on.

Seems like it is an unpatched code path in the kext, but that code path only matters in a specific scenario on your machine.
