Big thanks to everybody on this forum for figuring this out!
I was in a bit of a pinch, in need of a wireless dongle for my box before I went to uni

I used this driver (DWL_G122.zip) and after a restart, using the new ethernet port it created I manually set myself an IP and entered my router's IP in [System Prefs > Network] and it worked fine. It gets really good signal, I'm at 99% a lot of the time and it never drops below 75% (1 floor difference between myself and the router)

Again, thanks guys!

- Dave

Does anyone use this adapter at a high load ? I bought one last week; currently using the stock drivers which were on the CD-rom: version 3.10. It connects fine and when using it for just webbrowsing, mailing etc I have no problems with it (currently posting this with the adapter). However when I try and stream video from a network drive (connected through NFS) my system locks up at random times. Does anyone else have this sort of problem with the adapter under high load ? If not what drivers are you using ?

Gotcha! It works!

My DWL-G122 C1 works with Leopard 1.5.1!

After a long day of testing....

I installed
1. Info - RTUSB D2870-1.0.1.0b_D71w-1.1.7.0c_D2500-1.1.3.0 UI-1.4.8.0_2007_11_26.dmg
2. Info - Ralink Wireless Drivers Installation Wizard.mpkg.zip
3. Info - ralinkv015.zip

After installing, i followed the instroctution of the installer:
1. Repair the permission
2. reboot and start with boot option "-f"

3. Have Fun.


If you are booting with the Boot from EFI Partition Method, or a Boot-132 disc or similar, there is an easy way to avoid both the plug/unplug and the use of "-f" boot option.

After installing, go to System Profiler > Extensions, and look for an extension named RT73USBWirelessDriver or RT2500USBWirelessDriver or something similar. Just copy that extension to your Extension folder in the EFI partition or in the initrd.img of the Boot-132 disc and you are set!

Let me know if it works for you as well.

Some interesting info: the RT73 version, which is the one that comes with the USB Stick from D-Link, seems to cause kernel panics quite often, especially if used with torrent clients and such. I'm going to uninstall it and install Relink drivers instead (i.e. RT71) and see what happens. This seems like a common issue and it has to do with a poorly written driver.

Another thing: the G122 does NOT use the RT2500, so you can delete it from your system.

You can try these two:
The RalinkWirelessUtility.prefPane install the System Preferences, and that should allow you to access your Wireless from their and Activate a Profile, without having to Plug and Unplug

The "RalinkAirport" goes into Apps and run it at login, it will give you a Aitport Icon on the MenuBar

The RT2500Replug.kext was used in my days to eliminate the need to replug.....
try it first and if it does not help remove it before installing the other two!!

I think it's better to uninstall old drivers. And don't forget to unplug the stick on boot and only plug it in the moment you see your desktop (with dock etc.)!
