I am trying to ID the wireless card on my MBP. How do I find this information? I've trying looking on EveryMac, but to no avail. How do I find this info?
-> About This Mac -> More Info... -> System Report...
Under the Network Heading, click Wi-Fi, and find
Interfaces: on the right side of the window. You will find your card type, firmware version, MAC address, etc.
The route for older MacBook Pro running OSX 10.5, 10.6...
-> About This Mac -> More Info... -> Under "Network" choose "Airport"
Scroll down to: "Interfaces" "en1" "Card Type"
ioreg -r -n ARPT | grep IOName
This way you don't have to search for the right line :)
Using the command line:
ioreg -r -n ARPT
The line starting with
IOName will have a value of
VVVV is the vendor ID and
DDDD the device ID.
"IOName" = "pci14e4,43ba"
If you google those you'll find the corresponding vendor and model. The one from my example is Broadcom BCM43602.
