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 (((((

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 ((

repair permissions:

 

sudo chown -R 0:0 /System/Library/Extensions/*

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

sudo chown root:admin /

 

rebuild kext caches:

 

sudo kextcache -system-prelinked-kernel

sudo kextcache -system-caches

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 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?

    • Baio77 per me ciò che hai scritto è abbastanza "arabo" non ho capito nulla... comunque mi sono rivolto prevalentemente a questo forum per sistemare delle cose che non funzionavano e molto gentilmente Gengik me le ha sistemate, facendo lui però... io ho solo capito che l'impostazione per la grafica non va messa perché crea fastidiosi sfarfallii all'interno delle applicazioni nonché al finder nella parte superiore a sinistra (se leggi i post precedenti trovi le descrizioni)... stop sono riuscito a risolvere solo questa cosa da me leggendo anche in altri forum  proverò il tuo config.plist pulito e farò sapere. Grazie dell'aiuto
