802.11n 450mbps WiFi PCIe card with native Airport support on OS X

For Hackintosh builds you have several Wireless networking options.

You can either build your own one from an Apple mini PCIe boards and a mini-PCIe to PCIe adapter card, or buy a ready-made card that happens to be natively supported in OS X, plus has full AirPort support. The cheapest such card is the TP-Link TL-WDN4800 Wireless N 450Mbps PCI Express Adapter Amazon $44.99


While this card costs more compared to the mini PCIe adapter method (that sometimes requires device id tinkering with the cheapest 3rd party wifi boards), it requires no extra drivers and works out of box in both OS X 10.7 Lion and 10.8 Mountain Lion.

High-performance Gigabit Ethernet PCIe card with native OS X Lion and Mountain Lion support

Not happy with your Hackintosh’s ethernet speeds? Tired of wake/sleep issues with Realtek drivers? How about a natively supported PCIe card that works OOB with OS X Lion and up?

Please welcome the Koutech Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express (x1) Card. It uses the same Marvell Yukon chipset that Apple has used with some of their hardware, so it doesn’t need any additional drivers. I was able to get up to 85mbyte/sec transfer rates with my Time Capsule.

The card is currently on a $27.99 sale on Amazon!
