This works great. Thank you!!

 

I did notice that after you restart the machine, the wireless does not connect automatically.

Any way to fix that?

 

Thanks!

In System preferences you should have the D-link Utility preferencepane !

 

If so, ok , you open it and clik "Open Profile Drawer"

 

In "Connect Order" window which slides left you click on +

Chose your default SSID Wifi network

Authentification and security:

Chose your Authentication Type

and password

click ok

 

Now you should ( wich is my case ) have automatically at every reboot connecton on your default SSID Wifi network !

 

Good luck

This solution works great.

 

I have one query: how can I disable/re-enable the Wifi or disconnect from a connection, without rebooting or unplugging the USB Wifi dongle?

That's actually what I did when I first set it up but no luck... I still have to activate the profile every time I reboot. 

Maybe I just didn't install the drivers properly?

Verify your S/L/E

and

Repair permissions and rebuild kext cache again

 

( Sometimes Repair permissions of your  disk may give the solution)

 

Good luck

No idea !  I never disconnect WIFI ...

 

I'm waiting for a new Mediatek Wifi Utility  (in top screen button you could perhaps toggle on /off ??

 

Sorry

That's ok. I will just monitor this forum -- hopefully a solution will come by eventually. Thanks again!

Hi all,

 

This preference pane doesn't support WPA enterprise encryption. However, the driver does support it, since on the previous OSX the ralink utility can connect to a network encrypted by WPA/WPA-2 enterprise encryption.

 

Any idea to solve this?

 

Cheers

I tried this solution on an rt5370 usb dongle by Dynamode. it doesn't work. I put the kext with kext utility, repaired cache and whatever, booted in kext dev mode. Result is No Wireless Device attached. I have yosemite 10.10. dev id is 5370 and vendor 148f. I checked in the info.plist and there's a key for that (decimal values). Still no go.

I had the same "No Wireless Device" problem until I manually loaded the kext using the command:

 sudo kextload /System/Library/Extensions/RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext

This means that you don't have kext charged in the system ( S/L/E)

 

If RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext is in S/L/E, then

 

Rebuild kernel and kextcache:

 

fsck -fy
mount -uw /
kextcache -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions
cd /System/Library/Extensions
chmod -R 755 RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext
chown -R root:wheel RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext
kextload -v RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext

Rebuild kernel and kextcache:
 

Launch Terminal:

Enter: sudo -s

password: "your password"

then stepwise: (one line each time !)

fsck -fy
mount -uw /
kextcache -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions
cd /System/Library/Extensions
chmod -R 755 RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext

Like this ?
