I just got the Belkin F5D8073 Expresscard 3/4 adapter, and can confirm it works perfect for the HP DV9774CA. Download the driver (RT2860) from: http://www.ralinktech.com/support.php?s=3 It's the first link in the list of drivers. Once download: 1) Run the .dmg, open the installer. Install the software appropriate for your version of OSX (there's 10.3 Panther, 10.4 Tiger, and 10.5 Leopard). 2) Open up applications (Command+Shift+A) and run the Ralink Wireless Utility. 3) Find your network, connect to it (enter password if necessary). 4) Close Ralink Wireless Utility (once step 4 is successful, of course) and open System Preferences/Networking 5) In networking, it will let you know it's found another Ethernet <EN2> connection - fear not, it's wireless less the name. Change connection type from "Automatic" to "Manually" 6) Because you chose to configure "Manually", it's going to ask you to fill in these fields: - IPaddress - Subnet Mask - Router - DNS Server - Search Domains Right off the bat, leave Search Domains empty. All of the other fields can be found in your router's settings. You can access these settings from a computer/laptop that is DIRECTLY CONNETED (BY WIRE) to your router. In I.E/Safari etc type in "http//192.168.0.1" or "http://192.168.1.1". Username is usually "Admin" and password is blank, or the same as username. You've got to figure out how to get in yourself. Inside your router settings, you'll find a DHCP list, and it'll list all the devices connected to your network, and you can see their IPaddresses. HERE'S where you can find out a good IPaddress for your Mac. Just go one number up in the last section. For example, if the highest IPaddress in the list is "xxx.xxx.x.105", then you should input "xxx.xxx.x.106". That's it, you're good to go! Enjoy! Thanks to all who helped ME figure all this out, I'm glad to be a part of this forum
