I had originally posted this in the yosemite forum but later thought it would be better suited here (given that nobody responded:p).

Just build my first hackintosh and installed everything with Clover. Running nice and smooth!.. Except for the WiFi.

I have Windows on another HD that has the drivers installed for this adapter, and the speeds are basically what I expect from the card and my network (roughly 15 mbps down and 20 mbps up). However, this "plug n play" adapter in OSX is getting a sad 1.5 mbps down and 2.5 mbps up. Anyone encounter this issue?

Build:

MOBO : Z97MX-GH5
CPU : i7-4790k
GPU : GTX 970 SC
WiFi Adapter : TP Link AC 1750 PCIe adapter

Wow okay, I seem to have found a fix, but it's hard to tell if it's actually the thing I did to fix this issue... Since I did few things at the same time.

First I turned my wifi off, then reset my router, renewed DHCP lease, turned wifi back on, and that alone did not work (didn't fully expect it to, since I had done that 10000 times earlier)

After that, I went into Network prefs, and removed the Bluetooth PAN from my list of Network configs (I don't actually need the bluetooth at this point anyway, I really just want internet, and I believe I need to do something extra to get the bluetooth working on this card anyway?). When I did this, the wifi connected no problem! I think the bluetooth, even though it was not connected / turned off, was somehow interfering with the way the adapter was working...

Hopefully this isn't a temporary thing, will report back if it turns out that this didn't actually fix a thing :thumbup:

Well, I'm reporting back.... This apparently was not what was causing the issue, as it is STILL struggling to connect on OSX. Anybody have any ideas PLEASE
