Hey @chris1111

 

Thanks for coding this applications and drivers. But I can not make it working. Here are the things what I have done so far.

 

1 - I installed USB Wireless Utility which is provided by your GitHub ( https://github.com/chris1111/USB-Wireless-Utility ) I read the "read me" and installation went through as described. I plugged my usb adaptor and rebooted my pc. Wireless utility was not consisted. Sometimes it showed up randomly when I tried, sometimes it opened after a while. But I couldn't see any router in the list. It kept saying "disconnected"

 

2 - I installed USB-Wireless-UtilityPrefPane-V1 from ( https://github.com/chris1111/USB-Wireless-UtilityPrefPane ) I didn't remove other one, I just went through. I watched your video before doing that. I rebooted my pc and now wireless utility opens and closes when I click directly. But it says "disconnected" again. How can I make it connect ? Is there a way?

 

I am providing you some screenshoots. Thanks in advance.

 

( By the way my router ssid is hidden now. Should I make it visible  in order to use with this wifi dongle if it works ? )

@chris1111 I really don't what that usb was. There was no brand or nothing else.

 

I have another USB adapter. I tried it. It says Uptech for brand name. I tried your clover wifi version 6 and this one works. I can't know details so I am providing you another screenshot. This one is Realtek based I believe. 

 

Anyway , wifi is working now. Thanks for your works so much again. By the way , white wifi icon is super cool.

Got the installer, which downloaded the file and the "readme," however that readme now points to an instruction video that's no longer available:  v=FqAc24VTJ54

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..?

I was able to get it to work with the same device specs.

My wifi adaptor dongle was from Wayona 802.11n 

used the https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/applications/core/interface/file/attachment.php?id=298354 kext , along with the wifi utility tool.

Was not able to see connected devices initially.
After Rescan - found the available ssid's

I had to keep the application in the "wake on signin" list in case wifi gets disabled after sleep etc.,
so that I can get the app start again once I sign out and sign In

Bingo- Thanks to dev @chris1111 and all participants.

I'm made this in my recent build Hackintosh for Acer Swift3 SF314-52 (MAC OS Mojave 10.4.0)  BTW

Thank you for the github repo @chris1111,
 

Somehow I couldn't make https://github.com/chris1111/Wireless-USB-Adapter-Clover work with my wifi adapter Prolink WN2100. `lsusb` says the device is 07b8:2770 "AboCom Systems Inc 802.11n/b/g Mini Wireless LAN USB2.0 Adapter" which according to https://wiki.debian.org/rtl819x it's an `rtl8192cu` (the debian wiki typo it as WN2001). On Mojave 10.14.4 (SIP is disabled) it won't detect the usb adapter. On El Capitan it was working fine using driver by BearExtender.

I really appreciate it if anyone knows how to solve the issue.

Did you try different release ?

Thanks Chris for your hard work.

I have an Asus usb n14.

It works now under catalina latest beta.

for those who can't install,use hackintool disable gatekeeper feature.

then you can install without a problem.

Thanks for your hard work, Chris.

I have a problem with Self-Assigned IP although device and wifi are connected.

I have tried removing SystemConfiguration files to reset default but not effected.

I also thank you for all your work, Chris. I just made my first Hackintosh using an HP8300 USDT to replace an old Mac Mini. We use it in our living room and connect it to a large screen TV so Wifi and Bluetooth are very important to us. (it's running Mojave - 10.14.2)

 

I'm using your USB Wireless Utility for Clover (v7) and my wifi adapter is this dual-band EDUP model (Realtek RTL8811AU - about $13 on Amazon). It's working very well. The only problem I have is when the machine wakes from sleep to record some Live TV via an HDHomerun device that is on our network. If the Wifi connection breaks when the machine wakes up then the recording fails. (I do have "wake for network access" unchecked)

 

If I try the (beta) Wireless Utility PrefPane instead, can I solve the "disconnect after waking" problem by only having one Network (or one Profile) listed and making a new Location for Wifi in Network Preferences ? Would that make things more stable after waking from sleep ? Or does that only work if you are using an actual internal Broadcom wifi card ?

I think thats working much more better with an internal Broadcom wifi card 

Maybe All things are more stable after waking up

I did some testing last night. The USB Wifi seems to reset quite well if I use AppleScript to close "StatusBarApp" and then use "open -a" to reopen it. So maybe if I have a WLAN Profile plist in place with only 1 network and I can add a script to any "wake" event then I could make sure the connection is reset properly after sleep. I think somebody wrote a daemon called "Sleepwatcher" that can trigger a script to run when a power event occurs. So maybe I will try something like that.

I tried writing a script that stops the "StatusBarApp" and then starts it again. I do see the Network list come up but it doesn't automatically connect to the one in the Plist file and most times I can't connect manually either. I have to actually restart the machine to get a successful connection. I also tried using "launchctl" to stop and start Wlan.Software but that didn't work either. 

 

I saw that somebody with AirPort could just do this:

/usr/sbin/networksetup setairportpower en0 off

and then this

/usr/sbin/networksetup setairportpower en0 on

 

"networksetup -listallhardwareports" showed that my wifi dongle was "en3" ; maybe I just need to find the correct "networksetup" commands

 

There must be some way to do this - I just haven't found it yet.

 

(OR - maybe I will just buy a Wifi Extender with an Ethernet port and connect that way - they are not very expensive)

Hello! I've just updated Mac OS from 10.14.3 to 10.14.6 and my Wi-Fi stopped working. I'm using a cheap USB wifi adapter with RT5370. 

 

The thing is that in the Utility it says that I'm connected but in my Network configuration it says "Self-Assigned IP" and its giving me a very strange IP Adress . I've tried manually configuring IPv4 and it says "Connected" but I can't really access to internet. I've also checked the router page from another computer and I can see the Hackintosh connected (with the correct MAC address) but no IP assigned to it. I really don't understand...

 

Thanks you in advance!

 

I also tried some of @chris1111 apps and could't make it work

 

Some ideas?

I kept trying different things but nothing worked the way I wanted. So I bought a $20 refurbished AC1200 Range Extender (TP-Link) at a computer store and connected it to my Hackintosh via Ethernet. Wow - this is *so* much better. I have a totally stable connection - no problem at all with Sleep/Wake. And the speed is better too. So I think I'll keep this and not use the USB Wifi dongle. But I do still really appreciate all the work Chris (and others) have done. If I didn't need to worry about Sleep/Wake I think it would have been fine.

Hi

 

I'd been using wireless utility + RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext for almost 2 yrs without any minor problems (On High sierra/sierra)

 

But for the last two months it has started annoying me by weird behaviours! Sometimes it won't find anything. Sometimes it finds but won't connect. sometimes it connects but it WON't GET AN IP (consequently I got Self-assigned IP) and sometimes if finds and connects properly (5% of attempts only, & purely randomly). I tried almost all other kexts and modified Utilities. I'm really fed up..

 

I hope someone here do a favour and come along to find and fix that crazy problem..

 

Product ID: 0x7601

Vendor ID: 0x148f

Seems a problem with the Wireless Utility install on Catalina final ... 

 

The package is trying to install content to the system volume. Contact the software manufacturer for assistance.

 

Either that or i missed something ...

      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
