WiFi suggestion

Question

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.

    • Hi, I have a HP G61-415ES with this configuration:
      Intel Pentium T4300 Dual Core 4GB RAM NVIDIA GeForce G 103M My Wifi card is AR5B95 (aka. 9285), and yes: works well with Windows, isn't broken. The thing is, I succesfully installed Niresh 10.8.5 and works perfect, but I tried and tried to get WiFi conection (no Wifi icon on status bar, no Wifi on Network settings)
      I tried installing io80211family.kext, RehabMan-Atheros, toledaARPT.kext and nothing. No icon, no settings... Also I read something about patch DSDT but I don't get nothing clear about how to use or how to patch, all guides are too complex for a person that don't have knowledge of that things. Also a lot of files fo download are missing and a lot of links to get reference are broken, and that increase the complexity of the problem.
      I have a PowerMac G5 MOD working very well, but obviosly I made with the ¨Buyer's Guide¨ and I didn't got any major trouble, but with this laptop it's guiving me headache
      I don't know what to do now, I'm reinstalling again 10.8.5 but I don't have more ideas.
