Wireless LAN Broadcom BCM4313 - 0x14e4:0x4727

Question

Hi everyone, my laptop is Lenovo G470 which is listed in top ten of laptop to install Hackintosh here: The Best Hackintosh Laptops of 2012 - For Mountain Lion

After setup and install more kexts, almost seems working perfectly except wireless card.

My wireless is:

Broadcom BCM4313,

Vendor ID = 0x14e4,

Device ID = 0x4727,

identified by "Systeminfo version 0.5" downloaded here:

http://www.osx86.net/view/1479-system_info.html

I've read info in here:

http://legacy.{censored}.com/wiki/index.php/Wireless_Chipset_Database

to see no support for any OS X wifi feature.

I've download some kexts here:

http://www.osx86.net/view/2608-wifi_drivers-kexts_not_proven_to_work.html

and it didn't work.

I've read info here:

802.11 Linux STA driver | Broadcom

to see capable of driver for linux kernel.

So, please tell me the final solution for this problem:

can BCM4313 wireless work with Hackintosh?

if yes, how to do it?

Best regard! :encouragement:

Thank guy! But it doesn't work with BCM4313.

I'm going to buy another card for my laptop.

Could you recommend me which one is the best for Hackintosh and also suites with my lap top? Lenovo G470.

Thank you.

Thank you.

Keep in mind, Lenovo has a whitelist of hardwares (especially wireless card) in bios. You can't simply swap in any models. Otherwise, mod bios is needed though not recommended.

Well, that's a good idea!

But i need to know exactly which one that Hackintosh has stable kexts for?

Or i only need to buy an USB Wifi supporting Mac OS?
