linksys AE1000 in ppc mac os x 10.4

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

hola a todos,


tengo un nuevo USB cisco/linksys AE1000 (similar WUSB600N)

quiero hacerlo funcionar en una PPC G3 (800 Mhz y 640 MB SDRAM) Mac OS X 10.4.11


el chipset es ralink RT3572L



baje el driver de la pagina RALINK pero no funciona

USB(RT2870 /RT2770 /RT307X /RT2070 /RT3572)


tambien baje otros drivers d-link (dwa110, dwa125, dwa140, dwa160) tampoco funciona

baje otros driver de realtek y encore pero tampoco di con la solucion


intente cambiar el archivo Info.plist como explica en


tampoco funciona



alguien sabe otra solucion

muchas gracias






1ro instalar ultima version Ralink (05/03/2011 V4.1.2.0)




2do buscar Product ID y Vendor ID



Using Finder, head to Applications/Utilities/ and open System Profiler. Click on USB and look for AE1000 entry. Click on it and make note of the Product ID and Vendor ID - they are currently 0x002f and 0x13b1 on mine.



3ro modificar info.plist x consola



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

it will ask for your password just type it in (it will not show **** just keep going and hit enter)


Now you will enter something like a text editor.. but in terminal

(You can use ctrl+v to scroll down the document)


Look for the line:

<key>Linksys - RT2870 - 2</key>

after about 8 to 9 lines, you will find


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:


and hit ENTER

now type in:

sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions

hit ENTER.


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



funciona ok

el problema es la velocidad no es lo que yo esperaba

saludos y gracias
