Hello! =)

I'm from Russia. Russian vodka and bears. :D

I have the card Atheros AR5B195 (AR9285 WiFi + AR3011 Bluetooth).

WiFi is work! Bluetooth isn't work.

Your BT:

DevID: 0x311d

VenID: 0x03f0

My BT:

DevID: 0x3000

VenID: 0x0cf3

Please help me to correct it. For you it's not complicated.

Hello from Russia! =) waiting for reply, Thanks! =)

Got it kinda working...but can't toggle bluetooth off, the on/off checkbox in system preferences is grayed out. Installed on ASUS x202e with os 10.8.3. Read somewhere else in the forums that fn + f2 would toggle bt on and off but no workey.

I bought this card: Atheros AR5B195 AR9285 AR3011 WiFi WLAN Bluetooth 3.0 Combo Half Mini PCI-E W004 and tried to install with this pack and kali2000's link, but with no luck. I don't know what could be the problem.

My system is: 10.8.4. (12E55)

? IO80211Family.kext, 530.4

? IOBluetoothFamily, 4.0.7f2

? AirPortAtheros40, 600.72.2 (double isntance: SLE and /System/Library/Extensions/IO80211Family.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AirPortAtheros40.kext)

? IOath3kfrmwr.kext (not installed, despite i dropped it to Kext Wizard)

@pherekudes you must delete AirportAtheros40.kext from S/L/E and re-install my kext.

Before install IOath3kfrmwr.kext, you must set your DevID&VenID in info.plist.

PD. I like Kext_Utility for install kext, is best for me.

@kali200 I did do that...pulled the numbers from system profile, used an online converter for the hex, and updated the .plist. I've been through a few different versions of this kext from different message boards here and at tony's and different combinations of this and the IOBluetoothFamily kext. Used KB{censored} and kext utility and a reboot through every combo I've tried.

Funny thing is I don't even use bluetooth but I'm sick of having kernel task suck up 900 mb out of 4 gigs of soldered on RAM. I'm thinking all the bluetooth related error messages in console might have something to do with that and am trying to find the right mix of kexts with or without working bluetooth to make my machine calm down. I even tried deleting the IOBluetoothFamily kext altogether but it threw up a kernel panic no matter how many times I cleaned the cache.

@joehathen, But then ... Is your Bluetooth working properly or simply you want to disconnect the Bluetooth from F2?

For a correct operation from Fn keys, you must install AsusNBFnKeys.kext

Also you can see your kernel.log from console for detecting what is the problem...
