If you don't want the errors with 9280, try using Broadcom 43224, Broadcom 43225, then use the Broadcom 4322x DSDT patch in Probook Installer. My Broadcom 43224 works perfectly with Mavericks
Hello
I purchased HP Probook 4540s and installed Mavericks. Now I need a working WiFi+Bluetooth. I need a Bluetooth to use Bluetooth mouse.
Broadcom BCM943225HMB (or BCM943224HMB) Bluetooth will work with the Mavericks?

Or maybe there are better options for support Bluetooth? But I do not really want to use one USB-slot Bluetooth.


Issue has been resolved.

What did you do after replacing the wireless card ?
Any specific steps or it is working out of the box ?

Hi guys, sorry for the question but does the BCM943228HMB works OOB for both wifi and bluetooth ?

Does someone knows if the
BCM943228HM works on 4540S ? I think the BCM943228HM model is juste the same as the BCM943228HMB but without Blutooth, but I'm not sure.

Thanks in advance !

I have tried both Atheros AR9280 AR5BHB92 and Broadcom BCM94322HM8L (504664-001). Based on my experiences (5GHz band) I would recommend BCM94322HM8L.
Atheros AR9280 in addition to "unknown locale: 69" errors in console (unpatched EEPROM), it is very slow during boot and may fail to connect initially. I have to Toggle WiFi On/Off to get it to connect very first time (it seems ok on 2.4GHz). After this it seems to work ok until next reboot. Broadcom works flawlessly. It is also 1/2 price vs. Atheros AR9280 and it is available locally.

Did you find any solution to the 5ghz AR9280 problem? I only need the 5ghz wi-fi, i have a bt dongle separate.

my issue is described here: http://www.tonymacx86.com/hp-probook-mavericks/128136-450-g0-ar9280-problem.html

Does this work for my Probook 4430s? I saw the post that says that the 4540s does not have the same whitelist problem, but still, does it work?
