Default Recommended 802.11n card for the DM9 Hackintosh? - 07-11-2010, 04:23 PM

Any suggestions? I saw a post about a Atheros Card that was working very well. I am running 10.6.4 if that matters.

No dual boot, as I always encounter the same error installing windows, and gave up. OSX is better anyways.

Apple AirPort Extreme 802.11a/b/g/n miniPCIe.
Is exchangeable with stock WiFi board, and should be supported by Mac OS X.

I'm curious to try. Will I need to run another antenna? Actually now I don't recall if my stock card had an antenna... I'll look as soon a I can turn off the mini.

The Mini 9 has two WiFi antennas in the lid. It's an unusual card that has more than two connections for antenna (The Intel 5300 is one, but it doesn't work in OS X.)
