Hi everybody and thank a lot for all this great stuff.

I have a DWA-140 and the installation was without problem, but the connection to the internet is very very slow. I'm very close to the source, I can see 100% for the signal.
I used .drift's link ftp://ftp.dlink.cz/Czech/DWA-125/driver_s...AC_v2.3.8.0.zip for the driver

Any idea ?

@ Apisite: cross-OS signal strength level comparisons are NOT representative! You need to measure real/ actual THROUGHPUT with a Download Manager which is capable of several (i.e. 4) parallel segments for several minutes. I use DownThemAll Add-On for Firefox in Windows, OS X and Ubuntu and dl i.e. Windows XP SP3 Network Installation 316MB because it is extremely well-spread over an array of multiple servers.

New Driver (v2.0.6.0) and Ralink Configuration utility (v2.3.8.0):
Download from D-Link site - ftp://ftp.dlink.cz/Czech/DWA-125/driver_s...AC_v2.3.8.0.zip

Thanks a lot Skvo!

Works flawlessly with TP-Link TL-WN321G. Not sure exactly which chipset it uses but the driver is: RT73USBWirelessDriver.kext.

Almost forgot to mention, Ralink software was slower and worse, was constantly using between 10 and 20% of both cores of my processor!

As others have already stated, this software is really AWESOME.

How do you get the airport bars using this program? I only get a percentage.

You don't get them. This software doesn't integrate with airport system. There seems to be some out there claiming that they do, but I've never seen one that really works, as this works very well I'll stick with it for a good time.

In time: you can quit the "percentage" display in the top bar, this will free up system resources and won't affect the wireless connection.

Hi, I'm new to the whole hackintosh world.

My hackintosh is running Snow Leopard (10.6.5) and it's 64-bit I believe.

I have an Asus USB-N13 (Newegg) and I'd like to get it to work with this application.

I got the application up and running with the N13, but I still can't connect to the internet via Safari.

In the network preferences menu it says "802.11 n WLAN has a self-assigned IP address and will not be able to connect to the internet."


I would appreciate any assistance.

Nevermind, I got it sorted out.

It turns out that I had to adjust my wireless router's WEP settings.

This is working for me in 10.6.4 with a Tenda W322U V2.0 (RT3072) but with a couple of issues.

1. Doesn't reconnect automatically on login. Have to access the control panel and manually activate a profile or replug the device to connect.

2. Is there any way of determining the wifi link speed? Network Utility shows 0 Mbit/s and the "TX Speed" display from the ralink drivers is missing. I had the ralink offical driver installed and I couldn't get it to connect above 54Mbps even though it is a 300Mbps 802.11n card. I was hoping this driver might be better but I can't see any way to check.

I recall it took me sometime to get it working properly as well. The best thing is to start clean, you have to get rid of any Ralink software and startup items, leave just the kext in the S/L/E.
After that install the prefPane I've attached in the previous message.
It is working ok for me, the only drawback is that it takes around 30 seconds to connect after SO startup and it doesn't display anything before 20-25 seconds. This might be happening to you, or it is not starting at all, what happened to me also when there were some "remains" of other wireless softwares.

As for the connection speed I really don't have a clue as mine one is much slower and old-fashioned than yours.

Ok does connect at startup after a small delay. Throws iChat out which complains about no internet connection after a reboot but that's no biggy.

Still can't seem to get a connection above 54bmps. I have a 802.11g dlink pci card (atheros) which was working great as airport extreme with device id's but it wasn't fast enough to stream 720p movies over the network. So I upgraded my router to 802.11n and bought a this Tenda W322U USB (300mbps 802.11n Ralink 3072) as there were offical ralink drivers for 10.6.

Works great in Windows 7, connects to my router at 300mbps but It will only connect at 54mbps with the ralink drivers.

Can anyone report connecting to 802.11n networks with and of the ralink devices in snow leopard?
