My laptop doesn't have working ethernet. I use a usb wifi adapter to access internet. I can't login to AppStore as my usb adapter shows IOBuiltin = false. I've tried EthernetBuiltIn = Yes and my usb wifi shows up as en0. I am attaching my ioreg.
So after a bit of work I got Sierra installed on to my MacBook Air 2,1! The only issue is wifi. To remedy this issue till I can get a new wifi card, I decided to see if I could use my Linksys AE6000 on Sierra.
Linksys AE6000(or similar RT2870 card)
Yosemite RT2870 kext
D-Link Pref Pane(DWA-140, thanks! @rodrigocunha)
To get the Yosemite kext for the RT2870, I had to go through Mediatek's installer with Pacifist. I did try the Mavericks kext from the other RT2870 thread but it didn't work.
The files will be attached below! (RT2870 Kext,DWA-140 Pref Pane file,Kext Utility
Now to the process:
I'm not sure if order matters but I had the DWA-140 Pane installed already Next drag and drop the RT2870 USB WiFi in to Kext Utility Reboot(with or without your USB Adapter attached) Your adapter should be blinking or working with the DWA-140 Utility
Have fun, enjoy!
I've recently bought a WLAN USB adapter for my Hackintosh (VAIO FZ11Z): EDUP EP-N8508 with chipset Realtek RTL8188CUS.
(Unfortunately there are no drivers available for the built-in wireless card, Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG)
It works perfectly with WEP and WPA/WPA2 hotspots, but I can't make it work with 802.1X.
That protocol is supported by the chipset (in fact, it's working in Windows) but on OS X there's no option for that in the Wireless Network Utility.
I tried installing wpa_supplicant on OS X with no luck, since it's not really supported (despite their claims) and it doesn't compile. Well, with some edits it does compile but it doesn't work.
Does anyone know any way to solve/work this around?
