WiFi suggestion

Question

kalakus    0

Hello, i'm have installed Maverick and all works fine, except my WiFi usb adapter, can anyone please suggest me a network adapter that works with Maverick and my computer (from amazon Europe, USB or internal)?

 

for now i'm connected with my Samsung Galaxy Note 2 (USB Thetering), but i need a working network adapter, if is native supported is better, and if works also with the new OS X is a plus point.

 

My budget is €15-20, but if you find something with different price is ok too, the important things must work without problem (no disconnection or crash)

 

 

Thanks.

If you are using a PC, not a laptop, I would suggest the TP-Link-WDN4800. It is a PCI Express card, so make sure your computer has one free. It worked for me straight out of the box, no kexts needed, and it is definitely a strong card with good connection.

I'm not sure is a PCI-Express slot the one in the photo, i never use it to be honest, always used PCI, if you want to check :)

 

Thanks.

The dark blue port at the top of the photo you attached labelled 'PCIEX1_2' is your PCIe port, where you could install the wireless card I suggested above, and it should work fine with your system. It works on OS X and most Linux distros (Ubuntu confirmed) with no software installation such as drivers or kexts. For Windows you need to use the mini CD included to install drivers.

If you type the exact name of it (TP-Link-WDN4800), you should find the exact one in any store/website, but I know for sure the Amazon one works ok.

    • Saludos!   Tengo el mismo error (RAM a 667mhz), con una placa base ASUS (y mi cpu es el fx 6300).   Lograste solucionarlo?
    • Hi guys. Well, this is my second day of troubles, I touched everything, I installed max like 5 times in the same day, trying to figure out things and well. My Mac it display my graphic card on the #About this Mac tab With 2047MB ( So I guess all is right ) I installed the latest nvida drivers and on clover I activated the NvidaWeb. The problem is the resolution. Max resolution allowed is 1280 x 1024 and 800 x 600. I used to boot with nvd_drv 1 with nvd dry 0, I used to boot with all that things, and without them.  BUT No way to fix the resolution. Someone knows what-s going wrong and how can I fix it? Bdw im using iMac14,2 and OS X Sierra 10.12.3 Im connecting to the screen with DVI adapter. ( Maybe that causes the problem ) But it shows Im running 2047 MB so... idk why I can't change resolution. Thanks! ================================= SOLVED EDIT: Hi guys, in Display Resolution, I just set it in "Default for display" and after that pressing "THE WINDOWS BUTTON KEY, IN MY CASE, IDK WHAT KEY IS THAT IN MAC KEYBOARD, I THINK THE CONTROL ONE OR IDK" PRESSING that key I selected Scaled, and it appears more options and resolutions. There is a video on youtube about that called "Mac OS X Display Resolution" If someone has the same trouble.
