I use an Realtek based noname USB WIFI Stick:

 

802.11n WLAN Adapter:

 

BSD-Name: en1

Produkt-ID: 0x8176 (RTL8188CUS chip)

Hersteller-ID: 0x0bda (Realtek Semiconductor Corp.)

Version: 2,00

Seriennummer: 00e04c000001

Geschwindigkeit: Bis zu 480 MBit/s

Hersteller: Realtek

 

The realtek drivers (comes with an Wifi Util that runs on startup) works with Lion 64 Bit 10.7.2 C40.

Realtec supports OS X good (fast updates).

I am using the ASUS WL-167G V3 usb wireless dongle it works perfectly.

 

Hope that helps

 

Hey, which driver exactly are you using? I have one of these sticks but no CD. I downloaded the driver from the asus website (chose version 10.6) and when I try opening the "wireless utility" application it simply keeps bouncing on the dock and never opens...

I follow the advise and brought one from ebay.. it works.

 

two notes:

1. can update the software from the Realtek sites remember to select the CUS version

http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downlo...;Downloads=true

 

2. to make airdrop works need a patch in terminal:

 

defaults write com.apple.NetworkBrowser BrowseAllInterfaces 1

The tiny Airlink AWLL5088 works OOB on Lion using the provided 10.6 driver. It is currently about $14 on Amazon. Only drawback for me is that it only supports WPA2-PSK, not WPA2 Enterprise.

driver:

Update [10/12/2011]

This USB adapter does work in OS X 10.7.1, you have to use the WiFi utility supplied with the installer package to join a wireless network.

 

I too just bought the TRENDnet and it is not working in Snow Leopard 10.7.1. This is the message I am getting. I installed the official driver from the website, and I rebooted, and below is what I am getting in the network prefs.

This is the same version as I use in both Snow and Lion. (I have a ralink branded USB dongle, not an OEM btw)

You do not need to boot in 32-bit mode, as the Ralink kext supports 64-bit as well. (which my system is using). The tool to configure the card is 32-bit, but it works fine regardless.

How do you connect to your wifi without the wifi utility ?

couldn't get Zydas Wi-Fi Dongle to work in Mountain Lion Golden Master :( because it does not support 32-Bits whatsoever! :(

but hopefully I found the Built-In Ethernet Driver for my network card that works for 64-Bits kernel. I think that's the plan as long as nobody could make a 64-Bits driver for Zydas Dongle. problem is I need to drill a wall to do so :moil: .
