About This File

So as you probably all know, when Apple released Mavericks they changed the Wi-Fi cards to only support the ones they had in the newer Mac models. Well I found a fix for this.


1. A CustoMac (or Hackintosh, whatever you prefer) running OSX Mavericks 10.9

2. A Broadcom 43XX series Wifi card with kext installed in /E/E

3. Hidden folders enabled (how to is right here) www.discussions.apple.com/message/23522493#23522493

What to DO

1. Extract the .zip file to the desktop

2. Open the folder contents

3. Copy airportd to /usr/libexec (Remember to backup the 10.9 one incase something goes wrong)

4. Restart

5. Go to the 10.7.3 folder and right click on the IO80211Family.kext

6. Open it with the included Kext Utility

7. Restart

To get it working

1. Click on System Preferences/Network

2. Click on Assist Me

3. Click on Diagnostics

4. Click on Wifi and Continue

5. Select your Wifi network and enter the code

4. Done you can now click Quit and you should be connected

NOTE: You will have to do this every single time you log out of your CustoMac

Tested on Dell Inspiron N5050 with Broadcom 4313 Wireless Card

Also you will have to replace the files again after updating.
