Thank you for the video!

 

The option "turn the wifi on" is not present. But even before the install, from the package readme I read I should set System Integrity Protection off booting into recovery and setting I guess with csrutil disable

But after I reboot is on again :(

Great Work Chris it Works in Mojave.

Thanks and Great Work :moil:

I actually have a Ralink RT2770 but I saw it is supported too

 

I managed to disable SIP through clover configurator, however, once installed with your instructions, the option "Turn wifi on" does not show up.

 

What could be happening?

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.

The same is happening to me. After a restart I have to remove the USB Device and then connect back again in order to get connected. Otherwise, I can see every wifi available but it never connects. 
Did you manage to solve this?

What is the Drivers? we have a lot Mediatek :angel_not:

I do not understand also why use kext Utility + repaired permissions and rebuilt cache in kext utility

your not have a config ( SPECS)  notice in signature

chris11111, I am here to both congratulate you and ask you a question. I am using a Ralink 5370 and your TP-Link is working wonders. But I have the following problem: When I boot (or restart) the WiFi utility opens itself up, I can see the WiFi networks around me but I can only manage to connect to whatever WiFi I was connected before if I dettach and reattach the USB device from the port. Have you ever encountered this and do you know how to fix it?
By the way, I am using a H270-HD3 Gigabyte with a i5-7500, no video cards, Kext Patcher for USB Limit.

p.s: I also added the kexts to the EFI Partition Folder "Others"

Forgot to insert the detail of adding kexts to EFI

If by not good setup you mean router issues, I don't think that's the problem, all the other devices I have uses it smoothly... My hackintosh also works perfectly with the wifi after I dettach and reattach my usb wifi receiver. I was thinking that maybe some cache isn't being deleted when I try to restart? If that makes sense (?) 
The kext is being loaded, that much I am sure from kextstat. After removing and inserting the USB back again for the first time after booting I can connect, disconnect and bend hell if I want to. Just trying to figure out some ideas to not have to remove and insert the usb every time I boot.

Thanks for providing this driver.

 

I have installed the driver and the dongle works on Mojave 10.14, I can connect to the router.

This computer has an ethernet connection, I want to share it via wifi, however I don't see the options to create the adhoc network.

Is it possible to achieve this with the driver?

 

Any idea what I missed?

With D-Link DWA-140 preferences pane provided by rodrigocunha (OP this thread), I managed to create one ad-hoc wifi and it shows in iPhone, unfortunately during my troubleshooting the internet sharing, I deleted the profile, then I cannot create a working ad-hoc profile anymore.

In case anyone what to try : DWA-140WirelessUtility_PrefPane.zip or get the post #1

Managed to have the connection. The ad-hoc network is shown on the "Devices" section on the iPhone.

However the internet sharing is not working because the iPhone cannot go to the internet.

 

UPDATE:

I noticed ifconfig reports the dongle as ethernet en4, not sure if OSX Internet Sharing is looking for a specific name?

'ever thought of checking Asus's web site? It's got drivers for 10.7/10.8/10.9. Seems like some old device...

https://www.asus.com/Networking/USBN14/HelpDesk_Download/

 

Then, if you would be kind enough to identify the fitted chip or the device's own PCI ids, you may get more info.

 

Of course I know about it) There is RT5372 in my case. I've tried a lot of kexts and utilities, they don't work for me on High Sierra.

 

upd: finally I did it. I changed idProduct and idVendor in info.plist. But adapter works only if I plug it in after boot.

Device is Asus USB N-14.

idProduct is 17e8, which is 6120 in decimal.

idVendor is 0b05, in decimal it is 2821.

Maybe I did something wrong or I should do something else. I don't know)

Please, which USB adapter should I get for Wireless to work on my hackintosh Desktop Lenovo M900z, because for Intel Wireless, which the computer has no built-in driver installed.

 

Thanks for the suggestions.

I've been using a generic WiFi receiver built around a Ralink/Mediatek RT3070 chip for several years in a 2006 iMac running OS 10.7.5 with no problems.
 
I recently switched to a 2011 iMac running OS 10.13.5.
I’ve tried the Ralink/Mediatek and the TP-Link driver installers for this; they’re both accompanied by literature saying the they’ll run in all MacOS’s from 10.7 to 10.14.
 
After running the installer, the same kext (same version) that has been working on my OS 10.7 iMac appears in the Extension folder of the OS 10.13 iMac. The appropriate icon appears in the menu bar but, when I click on “Wireless utility” in the attached menu, absolutely nothing happens. The Console logs show that the WiFI utility attempts to launch but then crashes and reports that it has been unable to find the needed driver. I’ve turned off SIP and corrected the ownership of extension and system folders to allow access. Rebooting the Mac or reattaching the USB WiFi dongle makes no difference.
 
Any tips on how to proceed with this would be much appreciated.

Enjoy

Hi there. 

I have a RT2870 (Tenda USB Wireless) and it only works with the old, ugly and unstable WirelessUtility.

I will appreciate it if you add the support for RT2870 to this better beautiful utility. We are really tired of using the cheap WirelessUtility.

Thank you.

I got this to work on a generic Mediatek USB WIFI (I can't even determine its model or chipset) with El Capitan using Mavericks driver, with no permissions repair or rebuilding kexts.

      Hi all,

      after I upgraded to 10.14.6 the number of usable USB ports decreased.
      USBInjectAll is loaded.

      Any suggestions on how to get all ports working again?

      cheers

      A setup with an IVY bridge e5430 dell worked fine. but now seems the XHC device
      is a hardware issue. There is no bios setting to enable disable. Only enable/disable boot/external.USB in general.
      All set to enable. Also just mention of USB in power settings wake on USB.
       
      Did show up when I set up the ports w/USBINJECTALL, then was working on imessage isssue when the DSDT
      stopped loading after updating clover. I had two versions of MAcIasl. One with iasl 6. and one had 6.2a. Kept
      the 6.2a, was RM's most recent. One problem Im confused by is it compiles fine but after saved if its opened,
      the error that was repaired comes back.
       
      This part:
       
                      If (LEqual (PM6H, One))
                      {
                          CreateBitField (BUF0, \_SB.PCI0._Y0C._RW, ECRW)  // _RW_: Read-Write Status
                          Store (Zero, ECRW (If (PM0H)
                                  {
                                      CreateDWordField (BUF0, \_SB.PCI0._Y0D._LEN, F0LN)  // _LEN: Length
                                      Store (Zero, F0LN)
                                  }))
                      }
       
      Loads with the error but not sure what happened on the original that worked.
       
      Any Idea?
       
      Going over the boot log, The XHC device is there under the PCI readings dont think hardware issue... 1e31 Just seems the saved DSDT should not
      have errors after saved, but using the other version of Maciasl, the DSDT would save without errors and open without but it would not load.
      acted like there was no FakeSMC... 
       
      Edit: Seems all the saved DSDT have that error when re-opened using that version  RM's Maciasl w/iasl v.6.2a but seems to load fine.

      Hello, I am new here, so I apologize if I've chosen the wrong subforum for this question. 
       
      I am scratching my head a bit on an issue with a clients MacBook pro.  He was having USB connection issues and claimed the laptop wasn't detecting any USB connected to it. 
       
      Figuring it was a failed USB port, I took it in but ended up just feeling more confused after doing some diagnostics. 
       
      It came in loaded with Catalina, a recent upgrade spurned the beginning of the issues the client told me. 
       
      I decided to revert it back to the default OS in the base recovery image, which is Yosemite. 
       
      Upon finishing the install, I found that the USB port was in fact working again. Figuring I had resolved the issue, I updated it back to Catalina just to be met with the same issue upon reinstalling. 
       
      SMH 
       
      Tried nvram, pram, and smc reset each to no avail.  
       
      One thing to note is that during boot, the USB is getting power as it lights up when connected during boot up. 
       
      But the ports are dead as soon as it boots into the operating system. 
       
      I have a strong feeling that this is a driver issue. I tried unloading and reloading the USB IO kext, with no noticable change. 
       
      Is anyone here familiar with this issue? Would there be any other kext related troubleshooting i can perform ? Is it possible to revert to the kext used in Yosemite on catalina ?
       
      One last thing to note, on Yosemite the USB was functioning 100%. But I did get a strange notification that the USB ports were using power even when there wasn't any connected to it. Either way, I find it very very odd that it works perfectly in Yosemite. 
       
      Thanks in advance

      Hello all,

      I have successfully gotten my Hackintosh working 99 percent. The remaining issue that I am running into is that my system will randomly kernel panic upon a user issued shutdown or reboot WHEN I have either a usb sound card or usb headset plugged into any of my USB ports (both 2.0 and 3.0). If I remove the headset, it will power down with no issues. Does anyone have any suggestions?

      My system is as follows:
      MacOS 10.14 Mojave
      Gigabyte H370 HD3
      8400 i5 Coffee Lake
      Radeon RX 580 sound card
