I have the Belkin v4 and it works fine with Zydas Utility but when i restart i always have to disconnect/reconnect the adapter for it to show up again. Seems like a bug :unsure:

Hi guys.
I've got a Fiberline WL-430U wifi usb dongle.

I've 2 version of it: early one and last one.

I've installed the ZyDAS 4.5.7.0 driver from WEB, 10.4 version.
In the ZD1211Mac.kext and in the ZD1215Mac.kext files I've read the info.plist file and I've found EXACTLY the IDproduct and IDvendor of my dongles (decimal format), first one in the 1211 and second one in 1215.

I think that I don't need any hack (luckly, isn't?) :)

I've rebooted, the dongles seems to be viewed from ZD software (it appear as ZyDAS USB2.0 WLAN) but I cannot see any SSID on the "available network" tab.
Why? :D

I've tried also to hack the info.plist but nothing changes.

I've a notebook with Intel Pentium M 1,2GHz SSE2 with OSX 10.4.10 (8.9.1 kernel).
I'm using also a MiniPCI Atheros AR2414 with the 10.4.5 version of IO80211family.kext and it works very fine...

I've done another try.
I've installed a 10.4.8 (8.4.1 kernel).
With this kernel, WITHOUT patching the drivers, the 1211 dongles works fine, the 1211b doens't.

I've also deleted the 1211b and I've patched the 1211 to works with id's of the last one dongles, but doesn't works....

Now I've a 1211 dongle that works only on 10.4.8 (8.4.1) system, and a 1211b that doesn't works at all.
What patch of "hackintosh" I can check to works with se 1211 dongle in my 10.4.10 (8.9.1)?

Thanks.

Anyone else try their ZD1211 based Wireless USB dongle under Leopard yet?

I just tried and used the ZDA211MacUSB_install_4_5_7_0.dmg driver and it doesn't work. I see these errors in the system.log

Zydas 4.57 10.4 driver is working on Leopard. My wifi usb dongle is a Belkin F5D7050 V4000.

What I did,
1. After first install and restart, try to unplug and replug the dongle first. The device will then appear in the Wlan's Network Adapter list but it is alway connecting and there is NO available network.
2. Open System Preferences, click Network, Configure the Ethernet Adpter (En1) MANUALLY, ie., IP/Subnet Mask/Router/DNS.
3. Click Assist me..., then Diagnotics....
4. Go back to WLan, it should be working now. Good Luck.

BTW, you don't have to unplug the dongle every time after restart. Great...

Same here, with a 3Com.

I like more than my Ralink USB, and also has better reception ;)

Hi, mine (also Belkin F5D7050 V4000) is now also working under Leopard OSX 10.5.1. There is new release of the driver which ends: 9.0 instead of 7.0. The ID of the device and manufacturer were OK with this new release.

Thanks CheeseCake for the additional and extremely helpful instructions to complete the process.

Explain that.

Leo Sharing is different (if this is wat are you referring).

My Tiger shared folders needed some tweaking on Leo.

your F5D7051 is not a Zydas based adapter, you can see that from the windows driver.

AFAIK there are no drivers for USB Broadcom based on Mac OS X

Happy New Year! Meant to post this some time ago, before I joined forum-but now I can :blink:

The latest drivers for Zydas USB chipsets- lots of different brands- Gigafast, Staples Retail Plus, some Trendnet, etc. can always be found at:
Macwireless

Panther, Tiger and Leopard drivers. They also have drivers for PCI wireless, etc.

I'm posting this in a few Zydas threads- I suppose this is the main driver sub-forum?

You need to add a new interface, it wont show automatically.

You can also add a new location and the new interface will appear (as ethernet not as airport btw.)

No, Zydas is for Zydas based chip, the Intel has a develpment effort.
