Change AirPort Extreme card?
So I dropped my MacBook Pro down the stairs (with my 12.9" iPad Pro), and I don't have the money to replace them right now.
I need to continue my iOS App development, so I tried to pull out my old Late 2008 MacBook Air, but I can't install Xcode 9 et al on it.
I found a site by ‘dosdud1’ that has a High Sierra patcher on it to install current macOS on old hardware, but my AirPort Extreme card in the Air is one of only 8 that won’t work. So while it allows me to get High Sierra and Xcode on it, it disables my WiFi Card.
I have the usb to Ethernet dongle, but it's a pain, so I read on this amazing guy's site that it's possible to replace the A1237 and A1304 WiFi Card with a different Airport card that is supported by High Sierra and fits in the Late 2008 MacBook Air.
I've spent the last 200 mins looking, googling and trying to find which card this could be - could someone please help?
I found this on Ebay: BCM94331PCIEBT4CAX
But the alignment holes won’t line up, and I don’t know if it will work as it has 4 aerial attachments not 3.
Is this a good question?
