Hello,

Here is the fix for USB Wifi (RT73 chip) for Lion 10.7.2. I'm using TP Link WN321G USB Wifi stick you can buy this for under 15$.

1 - Install the RT73USBWirelessDriver.kext to S/L/E using kext wizard
2 - Copy RaWLAPI.framework folder to L/F
3- Repair permissions using kext wizard
4- Reboot and open Ralink Wireless Utility (You can add this to auto starup at boot)

N.B: Remove any Ralink Utility and wireless and reboot before starting the step one

Thanks for the fix. It's working for my Edimax EW-7318USG. I could connect my wireless router with authentication.


The official driver from Ralink supports this chip (rt2573) up to 10.6. I could install the official driver (10.6) on 10.7. The problem was WirelessUtility could not work on 10.7 properly. I could not connect to my wireless router with authentication unless I had to set my wireless router without authentication and sometimes got error of WirelessUtility.


edit: the patch for rt73 had been on kexts.com for months and I didn't take a look throughout the site until today.

I tried the above method but I can't seem to launch the Ralink Wireless Utility, while my hackintosh now detects the USB Wireless Adapter but I can't use it.

By the way I'm on Lion 10.7.2
