Usb wifi not working

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody, i've installed niresh's mavericks on my desktop ( i3-920 4gb ram ati 5750) but i have a lot of problems with wi-fi.

I've tried these 3 usb dongles : - asus wl167g-v3 (mac compatible as it says on the box)
- d-link dwa-140
-sitecom wla-2000 v1
Even installing the drivers with the cd they gave me with the asus, my pc recognizes the sticks in system info but into the network tabs in system preferences it says "asus wl-167g v3 (or the name of the other dongles) is not connected or the device is not responding". I've tried every kexts, drivers of the chipsets but nothing is working. The wireless utility app tries to open but stucks on the dock.

Please help me guys smile.png thanks

@manarosi Looks like the drivers are for older versions of OSX.


Just came across this for your D-Link adapter:

Apparently it works in 10.9

Got some news, now 5 minutes after i login the asus is loaded into the network tab, however it says "self assigned ip".  If i manually input ip address and subnet mask in the network tab the Yellow dot becomes green and says "connected" but i still have no connection. I tried to use the wireless utility, i'm able to add a profile of my network but it doesn't connect and often gets stuck.

It's a never ending story man :D

(This afternoon i'll try your drivers for D-Link, thanks ;) )

    • Oh, thank you but in the meantime I thought again and have installed High Sierra instead. It works just fine, put a camera, bluetooth, wifi, all working OK. I only have to solve a little problem when doing restart it freezes but after shutdown it comes up good! I have also Win7 on same mbr disk and I start with the installation usb but I think go over to EasyBCD to make a smoother boot. If your experienced I would appreciate very much any hints for helping me in this direction.

    • Hi, i am struggling with installation telling me that it needs less than one minute for eternity. in log it shows that "./postinstall: Using AMD Bronya Kernel" process is running, but 4 hours is too long for "Less than a minute" don't you think ;).    Please help me, i tried to install Mac OS on Intel and AMD processor PC, same problem.  
    • Hola, generalmente se postea en ingles.   Podrias dejar las especificaciones de tu tarjeta madre, por ejemplo: RAM PROCESADOR GPU ETC   Ademas de los componentes que tienes instalados... tengo una pregunta para ti.   Ya comprobaste la compatibilidad de tu ordenador con el sistema operativo?
