I bought a WG111v3 at best buy 43.39 with tax, you have to install the driver you download from Netgear to get it to work.

The blue led light on it will not turn on until the software is talking to it..

You also have to make a profile to keep your wep key.

I installed it on my EVGA 123-LF-E653-KR after messing around for three days trying to get the built in Marvell 88E8057 (Yukon 2).

I still would like the get the Marvell working so im posting this thread for FatShenanigans to look at.

The EVGA is still behaving erratically, the power saving mode crashes it, and sometimes it wont boot.

I attached dsdt dump, lspci, and ioreg dump.

Thank you for all help!

I'm on it :thumbsup_anim:

Can some of you list network cards that you have working (native), I can't seem to get mine to show up so I'll go pick one up at the store.


Hey all, I think I have some really good news. I have my Intel 3945 Wifi adapter in my D620 working. If this has already been done, then please, ignore this.

I've been using Snow Leopard 10.6.3 on my D620 for two weeks now (approximately) with great luck. However, the other day, I noticed that it seemed like my system had a memory leak which seemingly was caused by the Nvidia video kext. So, I started looking for some fixes.

Well, this morning (Sat, 17 April 2010) I downloaded the RAR made by Leppy710M, and installed it on my D620. When it booted, I noticed that I had an AIRPORT icon in my menu bar, and when I opened system preferences, I was prompted to add a new AirPort device. WOW!

My hardware is a D620 with the NVS 110M video card and the Intel 3945 Wifi card. In the past I had played around with the Voodoo Labs 3945 driver, but never had any luck with it - until today. And Wi-fi catcher mode is turned off in the BIOS. BIOS version is A10, BTW.

The only problem I am having with this is while it is showing my neighbors pop on/off the list of available networks, I cannot connect to any of them, not even the unsecured ones. Looks like DHCP is not working out of the box for AirPort.



Please see the screenshots on this thread from an earlier post of mine this morning http://www.insanelym...00#entry1450362

If someone could tell me what info they need me to provide on my hardware, software, or firmware configuration, I'd be more than happy to. Send me a private email, IM, etc. I also tried posting in the official wifi driver thread for the 3945, but it has been closed/locked. I also tried to post more screenshots, but I keep getting 500-type errors from the webserver here.

Hi, i have a SURECOM EP-320X-S card and it doesn't work on my OSX. Does anyone know of any compatible drivers?
I'm running iAtkos V7 Leopard 10.5.7.

The card works perfect on Ubuntu 9.1 with no need of additional drivers.

Please let me know if there's a way to make it work, i've searched for it everywhere and i haven't been able to find it.

Thank you!

I've gone through many pages in this thread but haven't really seen anyone confirm that a

Wireless USB adapter works natively with Apple's AirPort Utility on OS X 10.5.x Leopard?


Can anyone recommend one that works even on reboots / restarts?

It would be nice if it can transfer large files without it dropping connection too.

Also will it stay online constantly for more than a few hours?

Thanks!

I got a BCM94322MC (A Dell-branded one) for my vanilla 10.6.0 MSI Wind and it works 100% as an airport card with no additional drivers or anything. Gets good reception, too.

I dont know what the compatibility on the AR5BXB61 is, but I can tell you to stay far away from the AR5007EG. It simply doesnt work more than once, and even then its a pain to get going.

Looking for a good (current) PCI card to run in 10.6.4, can't seem to find one in this thread. Anyone?

However, to add one case of a working USB adapter:

I have an Edimax EW-7711UAn Wi-Fi adapter and it works without any hacks if you get the latest drivers. However, the Ralink utility has to always be running in the background (it does not integrate with the OS's native Airport icon in the system tray). It's a bit janky and is always consuming 15-20% of CPU (well, of one core), so I'm looking to return it for a PCI card. Assuming there's a good option out there.

I know this is supposed to be about cards, but a few people have added working USB wireless products.

I just installed the Rosewill RNX-NI WirelessN USB using the Ralink 10.6.2 installer from the Rosewill web site and it worked with 10.6.4 in 64-bit OOB.

how are your transfer speeds? Do you need to run the ralink utility in the background? Thanks.

I have an EVGA e762 x58 4-way SLI Motherboard.

It has a Marvell Yukon 88e8057 onboard.
I couldn't get it to work so...

I bought this card and it works flawlessly. No drivers needed. PNP

My MA770-UD3 MoBo onboard LAN from Gigabyte worked OOB with the iDeneb 10.5.8 stock drivers. I get 2+ MB/sec transfer rates. Now if only I could find a driver for my Airlink AWLH5025 MIMO XR 802.11g wireless PCI adapter :-/
