Hi, i've managed to successfully install an hackintosh on my custom built pc, had few issued with graphics card but nothing really big. The problem i'm facing now is, that i can't install the correct kexts for my wifi TPLink-WN881ND card . I've already tried RealtekRTL8111 v2.0.0 with no luck, and also gave this a try.

What kext should i try?

I've already re-installed the whole hackintosh 5 times now, i'm really looking forward to finally achieve my goal ahah.


Thanks in advance!

For TL-WN881ND, u need to patch AirPortAtheros40.kext (inside IO80211Family.kext).
U have two options.
1.) Manually add device id [pci168c,2e or pci168c,30a4] to info.plist and install with kext installer. For more info, see my build. U need to repeat this after every major update.
2.) DSDT patch. If using clover, just select 'AddDTGP' & 'FixAirport' under ACPI. As simple as that.
Can be done with Enoch also, if u are using custom DSDT. This is permanent, can withstand major update.
