The Best Wifi Modules For Mac OS X

  • by

This is the best working module out there for El Capitan (Yosemite), but there are many different configurations, we need to find the one that works with our laptops, it’s kinda trials and errors. The original ones are made by AzureWave, then some are made by Asus, some are made for HP 724935-001. HP module may not work with all HP laptops. Most of HP laptops, you may have to tape either pin 20, 51 or both for them to work.

BCM943225HMB Wifi and BT 3.0 Combo

This one is 2.4Ghz and Bluetooth 3.0 Combo which I used in my daughter HP Envy 4-1115dx and they both work perfectly. NO AirDrop. I didn’t have to use the HP version.

Atheros AR5B195 AR9285 Wifi and BT AR301 Combo

This is a very solid wifi – bluetooth module from Atheros. All we need is to add “2b” in the Atheros kexts and it should work perfectly. Just install IOath3kfrmwr.kext from rehabman and bluetooth will work reliably.
