Toshiba Satellite L300 Problems: Atheros 5007 Wireless, Battery Meter, Sleep
Just recently managed to get SL installed onto my Toshiba Satellite L300 but I am still having a few issues getting some hardware setup.
Most of the hardware is working beautifully (even the built-in webcam!) except for the wireless card (which doesn't surprise me, as I always have issues with wireless in laptops).
The card in my Toshiba L300 is an Atheros 5700 (Detected by Windows 7), however did appear in Ubuntu/Linux as a 5100 and returned the following in Mac OSX:
... which is strange.
03:00.0 Ethernet controller : Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapter [168c:001c] (rev 01)
Anyways, the default SL IO80211.kext actually loads up when running verbose mode, however it returns with an "Unable to attach" error followed by "HAL status 13".
I've tried a number of kexts I've found on the net, and only one of them has done anything, however it too does not seem to work properly.
The kext I am referring to can be found here: MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service
I believe it is a kext that was originally meant for Leopard, but it is the only kext to actually do anything when installed on my system, in terms of getting the airport icon to at least show up. I am running my SL installation in 32 mode as well. When I have this kext installed, the Airport Icon will appear in the dock, however I CANNOT turn on the wireless at all (does nothing). I've looked at the plist files and my device IDs match, but the airport does not turn on no matter what I try.
If anyone has any ideas or knows how I might get my wireless working, please advise!
Also, I tried using the VoodooBattery.kext for SL (found here: Darwin) but cannot get it to work properly unless I envoke the "-f" force command on boot. Any thoughts on this?
The only other thing I'd love to get working properly is the sleep function, but I've failed to get this resolved on a number of hackintosh installs I've done, so it's almost a lost cause for me these days :)
Any help with any or all of these issues would be greatly appreciated!!
