I have a Sitecom 608 branded usb wifi stick, added Ralinks official latest drivers ( 32+64bit ) and used their "utility". Sadly this has issues with Lions Fullscreen mode featue, the utility activates itself, pops up in front of a app and disconnects the connection.
So until ralink makes a Lion compatible utilty I searched for som small ap that will just let me choose my profile. I found this topic here and lucky I am - it works in Lion (GM).
the prefpane is 32bit only, but that is no real problem - it just asks you to launch in 32bit mode.
need to delete the original ralink utility from Startupitems, else the both confuse each other.
SL/LION working KEXT 32/64 inlcluded for Rt2870, Rt2770, Rt3X7X , Rt537X

I have a cheap Protronix device with the Ralink 3070 chip.
Uninstall what you have (run the uninstaller on the .dmg) and try this package, it worked for me.
Only, instead of the kext in that package, use this one (188.8.131.52 for Mountain Lion, extracted from the latest Ralink installer):
RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext.zip 631.72KB 201 downloads
Follow the instructions given, but don't use Kext Utility, install the kernel extension manually like this:
Drag it to /System/Library/Extensions, ignore any warning, run Terminal and type this:
sudo -s (enter your password) chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext chmod -R go=u-w /System/Library/Extensions/RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext touch /System/Library/Extensions ExitAnd reboot.

Thank you very much aqua-mac for the good work.
hey aqua-mac thanks for creating the Ralink system pref and making the Ralink AirPort menu icon work with 2870.
Anyhow I am currently using your RalinkAirport.app and rename it to USBWirelessUtility.app in Application Folder, also install your Ralink system pref and use this latest driver from Ralink website: http://www.ralinktec.../Macintosh.html
Which I just extract and install two file using Pacifist as you can see below:
After doing this I notice that I don't have to add RalinkAirport.app to the login items, if you just rename RalinkAirport.app to USBWirelessUtility.app and install the WiUtilityUSBStartUp, it will auto connect to WiFi when you startup your mac or if you remove USB dongle and reinsert or vice-versa.

Works great on 10.9 Mavericks GM with my Aztech WL552USB !!!
I followed onelove steps installtion method and I had to replaced the kext with the offical Ralink\MediaTek driver
I just try and test your Aquamac_Wireless_Ralink_Drivers.zip aka aquamac ralink wireless drivers v5
and notice that your WiUtilityUSBStartUp did not work... And this is what I found out...
1. Notice that Ralinkairport.app is in /Applications/Ralink/RalinkAirport.app and "AppDaemonUSB" (Which is in WiUtilityUSBStartup) look for USBWirelessUtility.app in /Applications/USBWirelessUtility.app only, that why I rename Ralinkairport.app to USBWirelessUtility.app.
2. In WiUtilityUSBStartUp folder is missing one more file which is call WiUtilityUSBStartUp or you could just rename AppDaemonUSB to WiUtilityUSBStartUp instead of adding original WiUtilityUSBStartUp file and also it need chmod 755 and chown root:wheel permissions to make it work..
Anyhow I have provide a zip version and a installer script I just made so that you can test it out...
Anyhow you will notice I don't have to add "RalinkAirport" and "USBWirelessUtility" to login items as WiUtilityUSBStartUp just startup Ralinkairport for me when I turn on mac after I setup the profile in RalinkWireless System Preferences as it really work for me. So I don't need to use your mod USBWirelessUtility version to make it work.
I extracted the pkg and took out the driver and replaced onelove's kext, at ralinkinstalltion/root/System/Library/Extenstion/
for anyone intersted in the driver only, i uploaded it in this link
The only thing needed to make this better, is to fix the preference panle restart when using RalinkWireless, im gussing as @Gwion Smith said it's 32-bit.

Will this work with Belkin N150 adapter ? Any help ?
Posted 18 October 2013 - 10:54 PM
It will work if your Belkin N150 uses a Ralink (now Mediatek) chip supported by the driver.
The least you can do is find out what chip it has and then ask again - don't expect others to do basic research on your hardware for you.
Posted 19 October 2013 - 06:20 AM
Thanks for your answer, I don't want anyone to do basic research for my hardware and that's not the point of my post.
A Lot of users are not very familiar with the hardware specifications or which parameters we have to look for, which are the correct ones for the whole thing to search.
Maybe for you is easy but i read the post and didin't get the point of the mediatek chip.I thought that Belkin is another adapter,different story with modifications.
We are not all experts you know, or native english speakers.
Whatever,thanks for your help,i will go search for the chip thing and not get you tired.
