switch to clover and apply the patches. That's the easiest way.

I'm using only the-darkvoid's 5Ghz US/FCC patch:
Code:
find: <4183fcff 742c48>
repl: <66c70655 53eb2b>
Seems to be quite a different patch than the one you mention using...
Rehabman is correct here, I had released 2 patches.
But after extensive testing the 2nd patch caused problem when returning from sleep which reset the
card to its original country code.

The patch as highlighted by Rehabman does not have that issue.
All of the patches work on 10.10.x (across 10.10.0 --> 10.10.3 so far)

I do confirm 5GHz is fine ... 2,5GT / 5.0GT is something else ... it's PCIe Raw Bit Rate !
Your card works on one lane of PCIe v1.0 ... which is normal ... nothing better to expect with CA country code !

MiniPCIe is one lane of PCIe (sometimes two lanes) + USB : wiki

Standard PCIe connectors of motherboard don't support USB, and you have to plug the adapter to an internal USB port ...you can notice that there are only 2 wires instead of 4 : +5v and GND are not necessary, it is data+ and data- which are the 2 connectors of the middle ...

And, finally, BT is on USB so everything is logical !

I put in slot PCIEX16_2 still not show 5.0Ghz.
Thank you.
