Just got and installed my Apple WiFi/Bluetooth card. WiFi works great, Bluetooth not available.

Hi,

Has anyone had a similar problem? I was using a USB Bluetooth dongle which worked okay (sometimes trackpad disconnects). Today I installed the new BCM94360CD/BCM94331CD card, pulled the BT dongle, and restarted. Now I have the "unavailable" bluetooth icon and the only way to get bluetooth back is to use my old USB dongle.

So I improved my WiFi, but not my Bluetooth. I'm okay with that if it has to be that way but it would be nice to be able to use the new improved BT.

I ordered this one:

Unfortunately it doesn't list a lot of features, but it's specified as being Broadcom BCM94331CD 802.11a/b/g WiFi card + Bluetooth 4.0 for Apple A1418 A1419.

As I understand it, some cards will work with some Apple hardware but not with a hackintosh build. The card that seems to work well with a hackintosh (wifi and bluetooth) is the Fenvi FV-T919. They come up from time on Amazon but are found on eBay for a much lower price. It may take a month for delivery from China.
