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? 

 

Verify your S/L/E

and

Repair permissions and rebuild kext cache again

 

( Sometimes Repair permissions of your  disk may give the solution)

 

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?

No idea !  I never disconnect WIFI ...

 

I'm waiting for a new Mediatek Wifi Utility  (in top screen button you could perhaps toggle on /off ??

 

Sorry

Hi all,

 

This preference pane doesn't support WPA enterprise encryption. However, the driver does support it, since on the previous OSX the ralink utility can connect to a network encrypted by WPA/WPA-2 enterprise encryption.

 

Any idea to solve this?

 

Cheers

I tried this solution on an rt5370 usb dongle by Dynamode. it doesn't work. I put the kext with kext utility, repaired cache and whatever, booted in kext dev mode. Result is No Wireless Device attached. I have yosemite 10.10. dev id is 5370 and vendor 148f. I checked in the info.plist and there's a key for that (decimal values). Still no go.

I followed your guide and I get this, what can I do ?

This means that you don't have kext charged in the system ( S/L/E)

 

If RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext is in S/L/E, then

 

Rebuild kernel and kextcache:

 

fsck -fy
mount -uw /
kextcache -m /System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /System/Library/Extensions
cd /System/Library/Extensions
chmod -R 755 RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext
chown -R root:wheel RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext
kextload -v RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext

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

Hi, I have The Dlink utility preference pane, I can can choose my network with Open Profile Drawer but I still have no connection in Safari...

Can you help ?

Repair file permissions you get with: Utilities /Disk Utility

or with Kext Wizard 3.7.11

And use Clover Configurator 4.18.1

 

Did you enter in Clover/ Boot arguments (config.plist)

<key>Boot</key>
    <dict>
        <key>Arguments</key>
        <string>kext-dev-mode=1</string>

 

Very important !

Hi, all

 

can anyone confirms me that it works on Yosemite with RT2870 (Dlinkgo DWA 125 - N150)?

 

With this adapter and my actual kext (for 10.8) system freeze after 1-2 minutes :(

 

Thank you very much

Thanks it works. However the utility doesn't show up for other accounts on the machine. The package lacks the "install for all users" option.

It should work, because your DWA 125 has RT3070 chip and is covered by the RT2870usbwirelessdriver.kext.

Put it in S/L/E with KExt installer or Kext Wizard. and rebuild kernel and system cache.

Don't forget kext-dev-mode=1 as boot argument when using in Yosemite !

What type of hardware is your dongle A or B ?

 

Under 10.8 you used these original drivers  from D LINK ?

 

A: GO-USB-N150_mac_driver_revA_4.2.3_all_en_20120307

B: GO-USB-N150_mac_driver_revB_2.0.1_all_en_20130315

      First, my build:
       
      Asus ROG Strix H370-I mobo
      i5 8400 cpu
      32gb ddr 4 2133
      1tb samsung evo 860 ssd
       
      Ive finally gotten to the point where the installation of HS loads to the language selection screen, but then i lose all usage of every USB port.
       
      Im at a loss of what to do from here.
       
      According to others, i have the proper files in the kexts/other folder as well as the drivers64UEFI folder.
       
      Does anyone have any suggestions as to what i can do? Im getting kinda desperate as ive been at it for a week now and this is as far as ive gotten.

      So I FINALLY got my High Sierra thumb drive to boot and once I got to the language selection screen, I noticed I lost all connectivity to my keyboard and mouse.
       
      i tried plugging in both into all of my USB ports (2.0, 3.0, 3.1) to no avail.
       
      i made sure I had the latest USBInject kext and XHCI-Unsupported kext in the Other folder.
       
      i also noticed whilst troubleshooting, the thumb drive will ONLY boot using Verbose and plugged into one of the 2 3.1 ports.
       
      does anyone have ANY suggestions?? I’ve been struggling for a week now on this!!
       
      thanks in advance

At the beginning, everything was working fine, but recently, usb ports stops working suddenly sometimes when i replug usb device, wake up from sleep or by himself (no action) and the only solution is to reboot. lsusb shows that device still plugged when i remove it. I have USBInjectAll.kext in /S/L/E. how can i identify the problem? And thanks.
