Hello,

 

Here is the fix for USB Wifi (RT73 chip) for Lion 10.7.2. I'm using TP Link WN321G USB Wifi stick you can buy this for under 15$.

 

1 - Install the RT73USBWirelessDriver.kext to S/L/E using kext wizard

2 - Copy RaWLAPI.framework folder to L/F

3- Repair permissions using kext wizard

4- Reboot and open Ralink Wireless Utility (You can add this to auto starup at boot)

 

N.B: Remove any Ralink Utility and wireless and reboot before starting the step one

Thanks for the fix. It's working for my Edimax EW-7318USG. I could connect my wireless router with authentication.

 

 

The official driver from Ralink supports this chip (rt2573) up to 10.6. I could install the official driver (10.6) on 10.7. The problem was WirelessUtility could not work on 10.7 properly. I could not connect to my wireless router with authentication unless I had to set my wireless router without authentication and sometimes got error of WirelessUtility.

 

 

edit: the patch for rt73 had been on kexts.com for months and I didn't take a look throughout the site until today.
