what happens if you unplug the usb wifi and reconnect it does it reload?

Sometimes, i usually turn off the radio through the WiFi utility and start it again which resolves it and it connects again. Because once it disconnects it doesn’t wanna connect to anything again.

Can't seem to find a solution for me, my USB wifi is a Mediatek and also has a product  ID of 0x7601 and vendor id  is 0x148f, it is showing up connected in system information under USB.

 

I have installed the wireless utility and driver and have repaired permissions and rebuilt cache in kext utility and rebooted, yet the Wireless utility just keeps opening and closing by itself, without letting me be able to do anything.

 

Someone please help.

What drivers do you mean?

 

 I have just done a fresh install on high sierra, and installed the "TP-LINK WIFI Network macOS.pkg" for high sierra (from your updated post), once it was finished I inserted my USB and restarted. 

 

After restart, the wireless utility will just keep opening and closing by itself, not letting me do anything. The brief few seconds it does pop up I can notice it says "disconnected!!" and "no device!!" , even though the USB Wifi is showing up in system info under USB.

 

And I just thought that every time you installed new drivers/kext that a repair of permissions/rebuild cache was required, my apologies I am new, just trying to get my Wifi working :/

Installed the kext and rebooted but still constantly opening and closing.. I managed to get the mediatek wireless utility to work from here: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/mediatek-wireless-dongle-mt7601-chip-sierra.244543/

 

 this one actually stays open now, but pretty sure it still isn't picking up my device... I've tried so many things, I just want this to work.. Any ideas..?

Hi Everyone.

 

I just installed My Human 150N Wifi USB Dongle in High Sierra 10.13.4. Ralink RT5370

 

Kext and PrefPane attached to post.

 

 I got the Utility from here:

 

http://mac.softpedia.com/get/Drivers/Ralink-Wireless-Utility.shtml

 

My PID: 5370 VID: 148f

Decimal PID: 21360 Decimal VID: 5263

 

It seems to be a Mediatek wifi adapter, but I could not compile the driver found on their website.

Is there any other way to get a Ralink WiFi USB to work in High Sierra without the use of the dreadful Wireless Utility/D-Link utility?

Hi,

 

Does the original package works in High Sierra or Mojave? I got a RT2870 chipset which was originally supported in the Ralink_Mediatek_USB.zip but the one from chris1111 in github don't seem to have support for this chip

Nice! Though I cant seem to work it, when I click on "Wireless utility" in the blue icon nothing appears.

 

Not sure if its related but in the instructions says that I should disable the System Integrity Protection so I logged into the recovery mode and typed

 

csrutil disable

 

It said that the SIP has been disabled though when I reboot and log back in and check with csrutil status it says its enabled with some custom configuration.

      Hi guys, this thread is to show you a new and open source app, created by me, that I called TINU:
       
      The name means: TINU Is Not #####, the U refers to a popular software that is used to create macOS hackintosh installers (that for good reasons is banned on this forum), but the aim of the name is to explain that this app is a totally different thing from that software and works in a totally different way.
       
      This app basically is a graphical interface for the createinstallmedia executable that is inside the macOS and Mac OS X installer apps, it is capable to create a bootable installer completely vanilla like what you do using the command line method, and also this method is recommended by apple itself. In addition to this, this app provvides to you simplicity and flexybility, and lets you to avoid most of the steps needed with every other app.
       
      TINU allows you to create easily a bootable macOS installer without messing around with command line stuff and without using disk utility, all you need to do is use the app and then install clover on the usb drive once TINU has finished or leave it as is if you want to use it on a real Mac.
       
      Features:
      - Simple-to-use UI that allows you to easily start the bootable macOS installer creation process.
      - It can work with every macOS installer app that has the createinstallmedia executable inside its resources folder (including also beta and newly released installers).
      - You can use any erasable volume that is at least 7 GB of size (if the volume's drive is not in GUID format, TINU will re-format it accordingly).
      - Can work with the Mac OS recovery system, so you can create a bootable macOS installer from the macOS installer itself or from the macOS recovery partition, and you can use TINU to install macOS, too.
      - 100% clean: The bootable macOS installers created with this tool are vanilla, just as if you created them using the command line "createinstallmedia" method in Terminal.
      - Open Source: You can verify what this program does on your computer and you can create your own version by downloading and playing with the source code.
      - Does not require any special preparations. Just open the program, make sure you have a USB drive plugged in and have a macOS installer app on your disk.
      - No need to use Disk Utility. TINU can format your drive or partition for you.
      - Integrated EFI partition mounter tool.
      - Uses recent, modern, APIs and SDKs and the Swift 3 language.
      - Transparent graphics style available (type alt-S or choose from the menu bar: View -> Use transparent style).
      - Works using the latest versions of macOS and will also support newer Mac installers out of the box without requiring an update.
      - Offers advanced features to customize your bootable macOS installer.
       
      Features that are planned for future versions:
      - Install and configure [Clover](https://sourceforge.net/projects/cloverefiboot/).
      - Install kexts into Clover's kexts folder.
      - Clover drivers customization
      - Use custom DSDT in Clover
      - Integrated pre-made Clover config templates database from a remote and open repository.
      - Support for other languages, at least Italian.
       
      # Requirements:
      - A computer that runs Mac OS X Yosemite or a more recent version (Mac OS X El Capitan is required to use TINU in a macOS recovery or installer).
      - A drive or a free partition (on a drive which already supports GUID) of least 7 GB that you want to turn into a macOS/Mac OS X installer.
      - A copy of a macOS/Mac OS X installer app (Maveriks or newer versions are supported) in the /Applications folder or in the root of any storage drive on your machine (excepted the drive or volume you want to turn into your macOS install media).

      I'm currently working on a new version of INSTAHackintosh.
      Purpose:
      This will enable user to make fully customisable  Recovery, Installer and Installed.
      This is taking a completely different approach, no createmedia/startosinstall  blah blah blah.
      Mojave installed to MBR/HFS no patch needed.
      You will be able to add kexts to the Installer as well as some Apps.
      You can do the same with the Recovery and Installed.
      Will be able to make a USB/ISO or Install straight to HD.
       
      Usage: Example: To HD from Mojave
      Install High Sierra 10.13.6 to HD
      Install SecUpd2018-003HighSierra.pkg to HD
      Install NVIDIA Web Driver 387.10.10.10.40.113.pkg to HD
      Install Applications to HD
      Install Kexts to HD
      Reboot to HD, Fully Updated with working video
       
      Will post a beta version ( HD only ) when it is done
      EDIT:
      would anybody happen to have an old version of my INSTAHackintosh?
      I've lost all my copies.
      No sense re-inventing the wheel.

      Salve a tutti ragazzi,
      sono un paio di giorni che provo ad installare il nuovo Mojave sul mio computer dove prima era presente High Sierra ma non riesco proprio a capire come creare una penna USB che faccia partire l'installazione.
       
      Sono sicuro che si tratta di una stupidaggine su come creo la penna o delle impostazioni BIOS ma non riesco a venirne a capo, spero che qualcuno di voi sia in grado di darmi una dritta.
       
      Vi spiego gli step che ho fatto e includo qualche screen delle impostazioni del mio BIOS.
       
      La penna USB l'ho creata sia con [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] che con il classico comando da terminale ma come potete vedere dagli screenshot la penna o non viene vista oppure se viene vista non viene trovata la partizione UEFI dalla quale far partire l'installazione.
       
      Purtroppo non sono molto esperto e non so se la mia scheda madre ha bisogno di qualche kext particolare e ho anche qualche dubbio su come inserirli.
       
      Ho letto su internet che le mobo Gigabyte talvolta hanno qualche problema di USB e consigliavano di installare la penna nella porta vicino alle PS2. Ho fatto anche questo ma ancora il mio sistema non ne vuol sapere di partire.
       
      Avete bisogno di qualche altra informazione per darmi dei suggerimenti?
       
      Grazie in anticipo a tutte le persone che vorranno aiutarmi!
       
      PS: aggiornerò man mano questa discussione con i relativi aggiornamenti.
       
      PPS: ho provato anche a creare una penna con il Legacy mode attraverso [url="http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/"]#####[/url] ma ancora senza grandi risultati.

      Hello everyone!
       
      I am fairly new to the world of Hackintosh. I recently moved my previous build into a smaller form factor. However, I am running into a series of problems with the USB ports on the new case and the new motherboard.
       
      Part List:
      - i7-7700k
      - Gigabyte Z270N Gaming 5
      - 16GB Trident Z RGB 3200 MHz
      - Sapphire RX 470
      - NZXT Kraken x62
      - NZXT H200 for the case
       
      Everything in the Hackintosh works just like it did before, nothing changed in the hardware department other than the motherboard (previously a gigabyte Z20X Ultra) and the case.
      This motherboard does not have any USB 2.0 ports in the back, there is only one header on the board, currently taken by the Kraken x62. The rest of the ports are all either USB 3.1 Gen1 or USB 3.1 Gen2, and the front of the case has 3.1 Gen1 ports as well.
       
      This is my current problem:
      When I plug something into either the type A or type C Gen2 ports, it works fine as a normal USB 3.x device with normal speeds, but when I plug something into any other USB port, it only works at lower 2.0 speeds. This is a big problem for me, since I have a few external devices that need the 3.0+ speeds and I don't know what to do.
      I tried to follow many different guides on how to patch USB ports, remove the limits, etc... But nothing seems to work.
       
      Please someone help me!
