The Netgear WG111v3 works. Must use the 10.4 installer from their site.

EDIT: Should mention I'm running 32bit

Does anyone know a WiFi USB-Stick that works with Lion? My current one that works with SnowLeopard (LCS-8131N USB Wireless, Chip = Ralink RT2870F) doesn't work with Lion (Wireless utility freezes). I don't know if it's simply the missing driver support from Ralink or if there is some general incompatibility...


visit my Lion Guide ( see signature ) - I have a Rt2870 USB stickfrom Sitecom. The kext from June 2011 is working in Lion, The ralink utility is also causing issues to me ( when using Lion fullscreen feature ) , so I searched for a replacement and found one.

A prefpane/menuitem combo that manages the networks. Works absolutely with Lion and ralinks official kexts.

the prefpane you put in /Library/prefpanes and the app into /applications. Repair permissions with Apples diskutility.Then go to Users control panel and activate the app to launch on login. Prefpane is accessible from within "system Settings" later.

I put together a zip, find in my Toshiba Guide - just try it.

Ralink will sooner or later release Lion compatible utility. Until then this is a working solution.

hi max as the "a" says
unzip the contents of his file and put in the right locations
as shown in the extracted folder then goto
application /system preferences /users /login items
press + and add the new installed app in application folder
I ticked the box saying hide. that's it
make sure you drag your old raalink utility to trash
if you have it installed .
this app looks like airport but isn't compatible with
the real apple airport app if you understand what I mean
