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)?

 

This is a USB driver kext, i think it do not work for PCI devices...  :unsure:

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 ((

 

 

You are almost there! :)

 

Now repair permissions, rebuild kext cache and reboot! 

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

hey, this stuff works perfectly on yosemite dp8. thx a lot!

 

is there any way to set up connection to a specific network at start?

as there are some open networks in my area and it connect automatically to one of them and after every start I have to manually change networks..

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:

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

    ;)

Any way to fix that?

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

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?
