Has anyone managed to get this kext to work on an RT5360? Or is that significantly different from those supported by this kext (besides being that the one I mentioned ran off the PCI bus)?

It doesn't work with my ASUS USB-N11 (VID: 0x1761   PID:  0x0b05) on Yosemite DP6

 

What I have done:

 

1. Copy prefPane

2. Copy kext

3. Run Kext Utility (it repair permissions and rebuild kext cache)

4. Reboot

5: ...... No Wireless Device Attached (((((

What I am doing wrong?

Boot with "kext-dev-mode=1"

 

Copy mavericks kext to /System/Library/Extensions

 

Repair permissions and rebuild kext cache.

 

Reboot

 

Try to connect.

 

hint: Use this script to repair and rebuild: repairrebuild.zip

So,
 
1) I found that command

sudo nvram boot-args="kext-dev-mode=1"

 
2) Reboot
3) Check that "kext-dev-mode=1" is ON
 

nvram -p

 
4) Copy Ralink-kext to /S/L/E
5) ....and see message: "The system extension cannot be use" after few seconds.
6) Sorry ((

sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/*

sudo chown root:admin /

I have a TP-link WN727N (RT5370) and Yosemite DP6 done everything here except I am using Clover injector and it isn't detected by the prefPanel utility, nor the Wifi icon appears, however its LED is blinking before this it was off.

 

Thanks

I have a Tenda USB Wifi with RT5370.

 

I can confirm this drivers are working with Yosemite DP7, installed the kext using kextwizard and connected using the provided pref pane.

 

 

Getting 50mbps down 30mbps up.

Yes you are right ! Thanks for the eye !

 

And it is working with OSX 10.10 DP8 automatically ( with profil drawer/connect order of my SSID) with my Dlink DWA 140 rev B1  USB dongle  !   :thumbsup_anim:

 

post-305243-0-34609300-1411771035_thumb.png

 

How it works for me:

  1. I took Dlink Utility prefpane v 2.6.4 from latest  "DWA-140_drv_RevD1_MACOS_4-2-9-4_UI_2-6-4-0_all_en_20140806.zip"
  2. Installed with Pacifist : Statup items folder in S/L/StartupItems

 

Then took with Pacifist :

  1. RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext v 5.01.09 from  "MT7610U_D5.0.1.09_SDK1.0.2.10_UI5.0.0.15_20140822.dmg" from here http://www.mediatek.com/en/downloads/     and installed it with Kext Wizard
  2. And took RaWLAPI.framework and put it in S/L/Frameworks
  3. Rebuild cache and permissions with Kext Wizard v 3.7.10

    ;)

This works great. Thank you!!

 

I did notice that after you restart the machine, the wireless does not connect automatically.

Any way to fix that?

 

Thanks!

In System preferences you should have the D-link Utility preferencepane !

 

If so, ok , you open it and clik "Open Profile Drawer"

 

In "Connect Order" window which slides left you click on +

Chose your default SSID Wifi network

Authentification and security:

Chose your Authentication Type

and password

click ok

 

Now you should ( wich is my case ) have automatically at every reboot connecton on your default SSID Wifi network !

 

Good luck

This solution works great.

 

I have one query: how can I disable/re-enable the Wifi or disconnect from a connection, without rebooting or unplugging the USB Wifi dongle?

That's actually what I did when I first set it up but no luck... I still have to activate the profile every time I reboot. 

Maybe I just didn't install the drivers properly?

      Hi guys, I recently installed OS X 10.10 Yosemite on my PC, everything was fine in the installation, video card already configured and working perfectly, the sound also had no problems, but I just can not connect to the internet, no connection with ethernet etc ... I tested some kex but it did not work.
       
      PC:
      Asus P5GC-MX/1333

      2GB DDR2 
      ATi HD 5450

      1tb samsung evo 860 ssd
       
      Ive finally gotten to the point where the installation of HS loads to the language selection screen, but then i lose all usage of every USB port.
       
      Im at a loss of what to do from here.
       
      According to others, i have the proper files in the kexts/other folder as well as the drivers64UEFI folder.
       
      Does anyone have any suggestions as to what i can do? Im getting kinda desperate as ive been at it for a week now and this is as far as ive gotten.

      So I FINALLY got my High Sierra thumb drive to boot and once I got to the language selection screen, I noticed I lost all connectivity to my keyboard and mouse.
       
      i tried plugging in both into all of my USB ports (2.0, 3.0, 3.1) to no avail.
       
      i made sure I had the latest USBInject kext and XHCI-Unsupported kext in the Other folder.
       
      i also noticed whilst troubleshooting, the thumb drive will ONLY boot using Verbose and plugged into one of the 2 3.1 ports.
       
      does anyone have ANY suggestions?? I’ve been struggling for a week now on this!!
       
      thanks in advance
