Tenda W311U USB stick wireless-b/g/n *works*

Good news - just because we have a "Hack" doesn't mean we have to do without wireless (even n). Wouldn't you like a supremely cheap wireless-N solution that works with any supported Hackintosh (even in Snow Leopard) with no fiddling?


Guess what - such a creature exists.


I just bought (Wednesday) a Tenda W311U wireless-N USB stick adapter for the "infamous spare/visitor drawer" (that drawer for the odd desktop or portable with no working networking) at the Fairfax, VA MicroCenter (they are blasting these stick NICs out for $10USD + local sales taxes). In addition to the Windows drivers (32 and 64-bit) the install CD also includes Linux *and* OS X drivers (including drivers for the Snow Leopard). I tested out the install on my fresh iAtkos S3 V2 installation, and it was utterly flawless - a reboot later and I was quickly and easily connected via N to my Netgear WNR-3500 V1. No problems or quibbles.


Now if only I can manage to find proper support for my HD5450 PCIe, I'd be happier than YKW....
