Question

As in title, I'm having problems with both Ethernet and Wifi.

I got a lspci from my ArchLinux for better debugging, and here it is:

00:00.0 Host bridge [0600]: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor DRAM Controller [8086:0154] (rev 09)

03:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Qualcomm Atheros QCA9565 / AR9565 Wireless Network Adapter [168c:0036] (rev 01)

I'm not using my NVIDIA card but I don't care that much, I care more of Internet connection (I want to use XCode to develop, as I want to write an iOS app).

So, my problems are:

  • Are there any kexts for my Internet stuff (So, BCM57886 and AR9565)?
  • If not, where I can request them?
  • Is there a better OS X version, regarding network kexts? If yes, can you point it to me (so I can use it)?
  • Also, does anyone have ever chainloaded the bootloader in Grub?

So many questions, I know :P
