I have an idea....a guy I know's friend made a driver for this. I tested it but nothing happened. If one of you guys wants to take a look at it and see what might be the problem, that would be great! I don't know if it's just a fake, but if someone could take a look at it and try and fix it up, that would be a GREAT help!


No don`t work for my wifi adapter.
Acer aspire 8930
System: 10.5.6 (Darwin Kernel Version 9.6.0)
Device: Intel 5100
05:00.0 Network controller [0280]: Intel Corporation Unknown device [8086:4232]

i knew it was too good to be true. guess we will all just have to wait. or maybe its time to go for a different hardware choice? well i guess its still windows vista for now until i figure out the wireless situation. i can only use leopard for photoshop and music.

buy an usb dongle like zydas 1211 or realtek 8187b
it works like a charm !

lol. Im beginning to doubt the guy in the first post. It seemed like he was just bluffing then left as the demand to provide the driver became greater.

it sounded too good to be true. all the "proof" and the theory. it just seemed as though this was really happening. i wonder if any of the others who had offered to help have any knowledge of whats going on. I'm looking to get a usb dongle or just plain swap out my wireless card. If only apple supported all intel hardware. not just motherboards and other apple parts. Hopefully apple will come to their own sense and add more support.
