sorry it is not really a patch at all, it is a patched driver

uninstall current driver, use the option to delete the driver when you uninstall


then reboot and install this driver


the driver was from a TZ notebook. I extracted it to remove the model check. TZ notebooks come with 4965AGN

Good to know, my 5300AGN is coming from China so it is taking a little while to get here. They are sending me pigtails and an Atheros 3x3 MiniPCI card fro the T360P also.

SUCCESS!

I have installed a Dell 1490 Wifi and OS X recognized it as an airport!

Wifi on OS X with the elegance of no USB Wifi sticking out!

I am so excited!


Great and congrats....!
