You can get this working under Snow Leopard by going to http://www.ralinktec...support.php?s=3 and downloading the link that says "USB(RT257X/RT2671/RT2500)".
It is a DMG. Mount it and open the 10.6 folder. Run the installer. Everything should work.
Sorry about the delay, if you really want to reach me, pm me, I will respond quicker that way because I don't regularly check this forum.
Note: much of this tutorial is taken from this thread: http://www.insanelym...showtopic=55041 and has been updated clarity for Leopard.
This will allow you to install the WUSB54G v4 on Leopard with full support.
Ralink RT2500 USB Wireless Driver(can be here or at: http://www.mediafire...php?wwmwajijie2 )
and f5d9050v4mac.dmg from here or at: http://www.mediafire...php?twmy1wwznjm .
BASIC Terminal knowledge. I will post all of the commands, so it won't be too difficult.
Step 1: Install First Driver
Mount the RTUSB dmg file (double click) and then copy the contents to the desktop
open up USBWireless-10.4 and run USBWireless-Tiger.pkg
Reboot when prompted
When you reboot, the Ralink USB Device Utility should pop up, if it doesn't, no big deal.
Completely Exit it
Step 3: Terminal, part 1
Pop open Terminal and put in
Step 4: Editing Info.plist, part 1
Now type this
sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/RT2500USBWirelessDriver.kext/Contents/Info.plist
Step 5: Editing Info.plist, part 2
At the end of where it says:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "[url="http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd"]http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd[/url]"> <plist version="1.0"> <dict> <key>CFBundleDevelopmentRegion</key> <string>English</string> <key>CFBundleExecutable</key> <string>RT2500USBWirelessDriver</string> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.Ralink.driver.RT2500</string> <key>CFBundleInfoDictionaryVersion</key> <string>6.0</string> <key>CFBundlePackageType</key> <string>KEXT</string> <key>CFBundleShortVersionString</key> <string>188.8.131.52</string> <key>CFBundleSignature</key> <string>Lens Wang</string> <key>CFBundleVersion</key> <string>1.1.3</string> <key>IOKitPersonalities</key> <dict>hit Return to create a space and copy the following under it:
<key>Wireless-G USB Network Adapter</key><dict><key>CFBundleIdentifier</key><string>com.Ralink.driver.RT2500</string><key>IOClass</key><string>RT2500USBWirelessDriver</string><key>IOProviderClass</key><string>IOUSBDevice</string><key>bcdDevice</key><integer>4</integer><key>idProduct</key><integer>13</integer><key>idVendor</key><integer>5041</integer></dict>[/code]
Step 6: Save and Exit
On your keyboard hit Ctrl+O and then enter and then Ctrl+X to Quit.
Step 7: Correct permissions
In terminal type, or copy and paste:
sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions
Step 9: Repair Disk Permissions
Open up Disk Utility, choose your current Partition and under First Aid hit Repair Permissions and let that run.
Step 11: Manually Configuring the Adapter
When OS X boots, you need to go to System Preferences -> Network then select USB Ethernet on the left panel, then select "Using DHCP with manual address" in the Configure field. I had to enter an IP address, so I just used 192.168.1.111. This may vary by router. Go look at your other computers and find their IPs and use on that isn't used.
Now install the Belkin utility (the Tiger version). Reboot.
Ralink USB Utility and the Belkin Utility should come up again. If it doesn't detect a network and still says No Device!! unplug your USB adaptor and plug it back in.
Step 12: Cleanup
Delete the Ralink USBWirelessUtility.app in the Applications folder, the start-up daemon (WiUtilityRT73Startup_Ralink folder) in System/Library/StartupItems and the Belkin driver (RT73USBWirelessDriver.kext) in System/Library/Extensions.
Step 13: Other Info, Comments
If you have no internet, but are connected to your internet, go to Network under System Preferences and it should say New Ethernet Device Found or something along those lines. Follow the guidelines there and you will be able to connect to the internet with your wireless device
