They are all pretty much the same ... I have a Digitus DN-30210, you get it in Germany, it's basically the same as Delock or this one here: http://www.ebay.de/i...item43b1ccbc10. But there are a lot more that look exactly the same.

They are not going to work OOB in Lion, you have to edit the kext file ... also there are some issues if you want to use it to wake up from sleep. But they are definitely working OOB in Mountain Lion.

Mountain Lion has official OOB support for these 2 dongles:

http://www.amazon.co...y/dp/B004LNXO28

But as I said a lot more are working if they have the same device id (for example Delock, Digitus).

Indeed
In lion i had to inject the plust of broadcom plugin inside iobtfamily

But in mldp4 and above you see there's a method/clasd called btblabla4.0
And that's mean that the binary in the mldp4 is totally different
Also: the device..in lion i cannot disable/enable the flag in the ctrlpanel.
In mldp4 yes. The flag really tak control of the usb device
