Updated Ralink/Mediatek drivers for USB dongles released at 29/11/2013.

MAVERICKS AND YOSEMITE COMPATIBLE

 

 

Drivers downloaded from http://www.mediatek....7xrt537xrt5572/

 

I made a zip file with oficial drivers and a preference pane from dlink that replace the oficial ralink wireless utility.

 

This solve the problematic Ralink Wireless Utility that simply does not work on yosemite and the package doesn´t install the maverick kext in yosemite.

DLINK PREFERENCE PANE

INSTALATION

 

 

Copy preference pane to \System\Library\PreferencePanes\

 

Copy kext for your MacOS version (use Maverick for Yosemite) to folder \System\Library\Extensions\

Repair permissions

Rebuild kext cache

Reboot.

Has anyone managed to get this kext to work on an RT5360? Or is that significantly different from those supported by this kext (besides being that the one I mentioned ran off the PCI bus)?

It doesn't work with my ASUS USB-N11 (VID: 0x1761   PID:  0x0b05) on Yosemite DP6

 

What I have done:

 

1. Copy prefPane

2. Copy kext

3. Run Kext Utility (it repair permissions and rebuild kext cache)

4. Reboot

5: ...... No Wireless Device Attached (((((

What I am doing wrong?

Boot with "kext-dev-mode=1"

 

Copy mavericks kext to /System/Library/Extensions

 

Repair permissions and rebuild kext cache.

 

Reboot

 

Try to connect.

So,
 
1) I found that command

sudo nvram boot-args="kext-dev-mode=1"

 
2) Reboot
3) Check that "kext-dev-mode=1" is ON
 

nvram -p

 
4) Copy Ralink-kext to /S/L/E
5) ....and see message: "The system extension cannot be use" after few seconds.
6) Sorry ((

I have a TP-link WN727N (RT5370) and Yosemite DP6 done everything here except I am using Clover injector and it isn't detected by the prefPanel utility, nor the Wifi icon appears, however its LED is blinking before this it was off.

 

Thanks

How it works for me:

  1. I took Dlink Utility prefpane v 2.6.4 from latest  "DWA-140_drv_RevD1_MACOS_4-2-9-4_UI_2-6-4-0_all_en_20140806.zip"
  2. Installed with Pacifist : Statup items folder in S/L/StartupItems

 

Then took with Pacifist :

  1. RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext v 5.01.09 from  "MT7610U_D5.0.1.09_SDK1.0.2.10_UI5.0.0.15_20140822.dmg" from here http://www.mediatek.com/en/downloads/     and installed it with Kext Wizard
  2. And took RaWLAPI.framework and put it in S/L/Frameworks
  3. Rebuild cache and permissions with Kext Wizard v 3.7.10
    ;)
