Problem with my Ralink Usb wireless adapter : Drivers don't work.

15 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I had tough time making my Atheros AR956X  WIFI card to work on my Asus X556U, so i bought a Ralink usb adapter with 150mbs speed.

 

I installed the driver which was labeled to work for OSX 10.5, but the USB adapter is not detected even by the dedicated app from Ralink.

 

 

i attached the gen_debug output, please help.

 

Thank you.

It does not take much effort to read that the model is listed as WD-1506N and fitted with Ralink 5370 chipset.

 

Now, all you need to do is find the relevant driver for your OS X/macOS version. Obviously, 10.5 (Leopard) drivers will only be 32bit, so no way you can run those underSierra...

 

Edit: above link from c.frio will give you the right driver; but pay attention because if you click on the Apple logo to get the OS X driver, you'll actually get the Linux driver; click on the Linux icon to get the OS X driver! But note that the drivers included are for Leo/SL/Lio/ML/Mav.

The drivers from mediatek, didn't work. I installed those and still have the same problems, i can see Ralink in the menu bar but clicking on it i only get the option to open wireless utility which doesn't open when clicking it. 

 

i attached the usb device information from my sysinfo. 

 

I don't know exactly how this work, but i need it to. can you help ?

:whistle: Doh! You could have started with that, because that's an MT7601 chip, not RT5370... Look for the relevant driver at the same place provided by c.frio.

https://www.mediatek.com/products/connectivity-and-networking/broadband-wifi

 

I couldn't find any drivers for macOs, mediatek only have windows drivers for MT7601. i tried to install drivers for MT7612 ( the only ones available for mac ). it didn't bring any results other than the wireless utility not opening and the usb dongle not working.

 

 i found a post on tonymac but the link they gave for El Capitan drivers which are supposed to run okey on sierra is not available anymore.
