(Please do not plug in the USB adaptor, you will know when is the right time, just keep reading the guide :) )




Fist of all you need to download the driver from this website



Choose the USB driver RT2870.




Now mount the file and install the driver, it will ask you to restart.. DO IT.


Run Terminal.. type in:


cd /System/Library/Extensions

and hit ENTER


type in:

chmod -R 755 RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext

and hit ENTER


type in:

chown -R 0:0 RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext





Now type in:


and hit ENTER


type in:

cd /System/Library/Extensions/RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext/contents/

and hit ENTER


type in:

sudo nano info.plist

and hit ENTER

change it to



Now save the file by hitting ctrl+O .. then hit ENTER to confirm the name (DO NOT change the name just hit ENTER)


Now hit ctrl+x to exit the editor.


Again type in:

hit ENTER.




Finally restart the computer and then plug in the USB adaptor and the network configuration window should popup.


Enjoy :)
