TL-WN851ND on Mountain Lion

Recommended Posts


I've tried a number of different kexts for the Atheros AR9287 chip in the TL-WN851ND card on Mountain Lion, and many have worked (http://www.osx86.net/view/3006-ar5b97_-_ar_9287_mountain_lion.html)... temporarily. They cause intermittent kernel panics a few minutes after I boot, so I can't keep them. Has anyone found a solution that works permanently under ML with this wifi chip? Alternately, is there a reason why these kexts tend to work for a while and then kernel panic? Is there anything I can patch to fix the issue?
