I've been monitoring this thread for the past month. Congrats guys ... Glad to see the RTL8187 is working. I have a RTL8185(L) in my notebook; but I still cannot get it to work. Looks like I might have to e-mail them. Looks like they do check their e-mail; as the post has seen success from the manufacturers.

Edit - I actually think, this driver might work with both the 8187 and 8185 wifi cards --- the driver's release statement says,

version 1.2.4
* support more channel plans besides FCC
* fix the following wep issue:
- only wep index 1 works
* add uninstall command to let user uninstall driver
* rtl8185 and rtl8187 Mac OS X driver can be loaded at the same time


Ugh, looks like I should've kept OSX on my comp last night --- back to repartitioning and reinstalling the system. :thumbsup_anim: Good thing it doesn't take long :(

Update: I reinstalled OSX; only took about 15-20 minutes tops... but the realtek driver for 8185 is producing the same results you 8187 users had..... looks like a simple e-mail will (hopefully) fix the problem.

The driver is not loading on start up and the kextload diagnostic is giving me:

For diagnostic testing:

22rtl8185_Client_Utility is not compatible with its superclass, 12IOUserClient superclass changed?
computer:/System/Library/Extensions josh$ sudo kextload -t rtl8185.kext
kernel extension rtl8185.kext has problems:
Validation failures
{
"Executable file doesn't contain kernel extension code" = true
}

I can get it to connect once... then it dies after about 10 seconds (or some certain amount of data gets transferred).

Is anyone else having this problem with the rtl8187(L) ?

go to advanced settings and click for wireless mode 802.11b (not g/:(
and channel plan: ETSI but every time you reboot you must apply these settings.

i had the same problem with g/b i could download only with 15kb/sec and up 32kb/sec

with the settings above i have full speed :D


Define "full speed" ;-) 802.11b, or 802.11g full speed. heh. I'd really like to get G working on it. I don't have the machine in front of me but there is a setting for TKIK or something, and I changed it to the other and it works consistently... but it is nowhere near full speed.

Is there a way to make OSX realize that this is an Airport card? I can't seem to figure it out... I've tried going through AppleAirport2.kext (added rtl8186.kext to the Plugins folder) and tried making an entry in the Info.plist, but no luck. What am I missing?

Yes, it is important that it sees it as an Airport card. It works fine as far as connectivity is concerned, but I need that luxury.


EDIT: I am running OSX 10.4.8, it is a 8187L, device "3034"

If there is any more information you need, please ask. I would love to have this going by Wednesday if possible (so I can test it at school and see if it works there).

I'm having problems with an onboard RLT8187 on the ASUS P5K3, with the latest Realtek driver, I can enable the card and it works flawlesly with a Linksys router, but if I want to connect to an airport Extreme base station, it either authenticates and deauthenticates later or forces a soft reset every 10 seconds (I tried already all sorts of configurations). Do you guys experience anything like this?

Actually, I guess I need to find out a way of telling that the drive is not a USB detachable one... the problem is that every once in a while it appears as if the drive was disconnected...
