Hi there, I have a smcwusbs-n3, and I wondered if there was anyway that I could make OS X think that it is compatible with the systems own wireless utility- instead of having to use the software that came with the USB. I find it annoying and slow.

Any help much appreciated ;)

First install the perfPane and look does it work or not, the other Application is for the Menubar, that can you put to Startup items.
