Hi, I have an Asus F541UV (X541UV mainboard) and I have successfully installed El Capitan. It has a Realtek RTL8723BE installed and I tried to install an Atheros 5B95 but OS X can't find the hardware. I'm afraid the BIOS has a whitelist of cards allowed. Can anyone help me? I'm trying to find an OS X compatible whitelisted card, or, as an alternative, a patched BIOS for my laptop.
Eventually I will buy an external USB WiFi, what's the SMALLEST USB dongle OS X compatible?

Thank you very much.
Please, can you give us a guide for install

While you're waiting...

Follow the Clover guide linked from the FAQ.
http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capitan-laptop-support/164990-faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.html

Although you should read the FAQ for an overview of issues, the Clover guide is linked from the first question: "Q. Where do I start?", just after the bold face "Clover Guide".
Here is a direct link, just to be clear:
https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-booting-the-os-x-installer-on-laptops-with-clover.148093/

Also, your profile must be filled out with complete details as requested in the FAQ, again under "Q. Where do I start?". All seven details requested are equally important.

And if you have an issue (after following the guide), or on any other problem, you must provide a detailed description of the problem including information that helps us understand what you're doing. Always attach "Problem Reporting" files as per FAQ.
http://www.tonymacx86.com/el-capitan-laptop-support/164990-faq-read-first-laptop-frequent-questions.html
The required files and data are fully detailed in the last question in the FAQ:
"Q. What are typical "Problem Reporting" files?"

I don't have any guide as at the time I only followed guides already present on this site. Anyway, due to the lack of support for trackpad Elan1200 I resolved to format again and installed Linux Mint...
