Hi, I got it to work with opensource driver. (USBAx8817x 1.0.3b10)

Just install the driver, reboot and then plug in the adapter. :unsure:

In fact, this seems to working fine on all mac model:s to.


Apple's adapter contains a software based bridge chip AND a firmware chip.


This means two things: 1) They could disable their adapter for certain Macs at any time 2) The software based solution is slower and less reliable than a hardware based bridge.


Please check out this adapter instead:
