Hi there, I'm building a Hackintosh for a friend of mine, and everything went fine except that I can't connect to internet. 

His board is a Z77-DS3H so I installed an Atheros ethernet fix. The strange thing is that all seems right, I even have a green light saying "Connected" in the network settings, but still can't navigate with Safari. I have a WiFi USB dongle, the TL-WN725N, and downloaded the right drivers from this page http://www.osx86.net...5n-v2-usb-wifi/ .


Here are some images; in one of them the WiFi option in is clearly blocked, I believe it's because when I installed the OS I selected the option "This computer connects to internet with an internal Ethernet card" (the WiFi option was also blocked back then).

 

I hope you can help me with this, thanks!

I've already installed the correct kext, my Wifi dongle is the TL-WN725N v.2, wich has the Realtek chip RTL8188EUS, so I don't really know why this happens

 

Could it be that I'm trying to connect to a wi fi router with Windows XP?
