    I'm late to the party here, but I've just loaded 23.04 on an old 2009 Macbook, and the wifi driver won't stick.
    It works with the LTS version, or the Mint distros. I have a different model adapter, but it's Broadcom. You may have to stick with an earlier kernel.

    Ubuntu LTS releases offer kernel stack choices (GA + HWE, plus also OEM if you're lucky).

    Alas the non-LTS releases do not offer this (the HWE stack choice for the LTS comes from the later non-LTS).

    ( if you don't understand the significance, changing kernel also changes the kernel modules being used; kernel modules are commonly called 'drivers' )

    For wifi troubleshooting, whilst I no almost nothing about macs, I'd still use the standard guides as only the hardware chipsets really matter - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Wi...eShootingGuide (3.1 or device recognition and operation is most useful; it gives you useful details to search online using your favorite search engine (duckduckgo, startpage etc))
