Wireless Issue

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



Well got my Buffalo WLI-U2-KG54-AI working with the latest Ralink Driver. I can connect to my router (Linksys WRT-54GL) just fine thru the Ralink USB Wireless Utility but the problem is I cant cruise the web. I read around that I should use the System Preferences/Network to setup my new connection but its not listed there. All I see is my "dead/no functional" on-board 3com920 wired ethernet as an option and none other.


Under System profiler my USB WiFi shows up as BSD name : en0. Under Network it says "Built-in Ethernet", Type: Ethernet, Hardware: Ethernet, BSD Device Name: en0, IPv4 Address:, Config Method: DHCP, Interface Name: en0, Subnet Masks:


Any help would be appreciated!!!!

Hello again Rammjet,


ok heres the scoop. so i went to system prefrences->network->show->Network port configurations->new... and this is what shows up in the show windows : network status, built-in ethernet, network port configurations and in network port configurations i only have built-in ethernet as an option which is checked and active. there is no airport option.


also, the buffalo was in the info.plist. i had to tweak the idproduct key in the plist to make the buffalo work but everything else is factory.


in the usbwireless utility, it states that i am connected to my router but i think your right in that its not. kinda weird.


heres some info that might be helpful that a got.
