Ralink chipset wifi work around

I have managed to get around the "no device" problem of Ralink wifi adaptors.

I only use the driver provided on the Ralink site. After installation, I use DiskUtility to verfiy and repair permission of the OSX drive. Shut down and restart the computer.

As the computer starts, hold down F8 key. OSX will give you a boot option menu with the last line as BOOT:

Type in -f and hit enter.

After OSX has started, either start the Ralink wifi program manually or have it start at startup. I keep mine in the Dock and have it start at logon.

Be patient and wait. Hopefull you won't get the "no device" message. After about 20 seconds site survey will show the AP's around and the message will go from disconnected to connected.

I have made it work on the following:

Desk top with Asrock 775IG65 MB with Xterasys XN-3135G wifi dongle.

Everex SA2052T laptop with built in wifi.

By the way the SA2052T seems very OSX friendly. I install the JaS 10.4.8 then install the GMA950 package on the DVD.

Video works with QE and CI at 1280x800. No sound. I use a creative Xmod. Built in wifi works with my workaround. DVD works and play DVD movies with no sound.

LAN works. Didn't check modem since I don't use them.

Good luck.

Because:

- Boradcom cards are used on Real Macs, but also Atheros on the lastests models.

- Dell true mobile cards are Broadcom based and those are reported as working like Airports.

- There are more kexts fro broadcom than other.

Ralinks PCI card don't have a working driver, USB ones has but reception is awful, Zydas (USB) has good reception but does not works as Airport.

More?

There is guide in Hardware section to change WiFi card on HP laptops, since those laptops prevents "other" hardware than HP it need a patch, look there.

I wasn't sure where to post this, but I never did find a solution to my wireless problem on the forum and ended up fixing it myself last night.

Anyway, I swapped out my Prowireless minicard in my Dell E1505 for a Truemobile 1390. Works like a charm and is detected as Third Party Airport. After all updates, it suddently stopped working, that is to say I couldn:t turn the the Airport ON, and I actually found alot of people with the same problem but no solution.

Anyway, tried the swap trick, tried changing my location, making a new login, etc. Nothing worked. Even tried booting into safemode and repairing permissions, and also reloading all kexts etc. Nothing worked.

In the end, I tried removing my battery and booting with only power adapter, didn:t work. Then I tried the reverse, battery with no power adapter, and voila wireless turned on. Then I realized that I had actually had a problem like this before when my DVDRW wouldn:t get any power after the system booted in to XP, even though everything was detected in BIOS.

So anyway, if anyone has problems after updates, try booting without your battery and if that doesn:t work, try booting without power cable. I know it sounds silly, but it seems to be some kind of power problem.

Oh yeah, and i suppose this only applies to laptops, cheers!

you know that wasnt really awckward to read, coz i was tryin to make a compaq 4311 broadcom mini pci-e to work on my hp and i lost sleep capability...so there's something about power management to make wireless work...i dont know what, but people were talkin about the card might not be powered enough or the pci-e is not well recognized! im without wireless and cannot live long like that..
