I'm new to the whole MAC thing and have managed to get 10.5.5 installed and everything working really well apart from wireless. I have an internal 8187B card but cannot get it to work. How do I go about installing your driver? What do you mean by replacing kext and repairing disk premiss etc.
Thanks in advance
PS believe it or not I'm an IT Engineer but on PC's not MAC!!!
Download latest driver from official RTL web site.
At the end of page u will see RTL8187B drivers, download for Mac.
now make SURE that ur device is found in System Profiler / USB (must have patched USB kext fix)
1. Install official driver
2. Open Utilities - Terminal
type sudo -s
type ur root password / and hit enter
type cd /System/Library/Extensions
rm -rf RTL8187Bt.kext/
and install new kext that u downloaded from this web site. (u can use some kext installer or just copy file to that location)
Now go to Utilities - Disk Utility select ur partition and press Repair Disk Permissions
u dont even need to reboot ur pc, device will be found upon disk repair or kext install by some tool.
Hope that this will help u out.
Note: U must have patched USB kext. im uploading mine now here.
Note: this staff works even on 10.5.8 mac version.
