Hi All

 

I am new to Mac OSX but have installed Snow Leopard on my Lenovo G550 and I can not get a USB WIFI Dongle to work. I have tried installing the drivers on the disk but it will not work

 

It is a LM-Technologies LM006 Wi-Fi 150Mbps USB Nano Adapter

 

Chipset: Realtek RTL8188SU

 

It is supported for MAC 10.4 & 10.5 but not sure for 10.6

 

Any help would be appreciated

 

Thanks in Advance

i have the airlink driver with the airlink 101 (RTL8188SU) and works great in 10.5. i've heard you can use this airlink driver for any USB wireless that has the same chipset

 

on airlink website, it says this driver supports 10.4 - 10.5 - 10.6

neither above work, try this generic realtek driver for RTL8188SU

hey all.

my first post here.

i found this topic while searching for my wireless card.

I just bought an old powermac g5 Dual tower. With Tiger still so far...

i am trying to install a generic Realtek antenna, this one is where I got the drivers at:

 

http://www.realtek.com/products/productsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=21&PFid=48&Level=5&Conn=4&ProdID=228

 

I seem to have gotten it to install, as the radio sees various wireless sources,

and at first it connected very slowly but now seems to not at all. When I first boot up the computer there is a message "Please enable the WLAN card in the Network item of System Preferences."

 

But it does register like 95-100% Signal strength. Is there something I'm missing?

I've attached two pics of these situations. Thanks so much for any help...

Dan
