Hey guys! So after months of reading through forum pages I finally got my Hackintosh up and running. I got Mountain Lion 10.8.2 installed into in, in a duall boot configuration with Windows 7. Everything seems to be working just fine, except I need a USB Wifi adaptor! Do you know any good USB Wifi adaptors that will work on Mountain Lion? While reading the forums I found that the D-link DWA-125 works in ML, but Im looking for something more powerful since my wifi signal is kinda weak. Any suggestions?
Also it would be perfect if it worked with W7 as well, wich Im supposing will be easier to find. Thanks in advance!

Realtek RTL8188SU/RTL8188CUS/RTL8188RU/RTL8192CU/RTL8191SU-based (2x2, 2.4 GHz):

TP-Link TL-WN823N
EDUP EP-N1528 (I own one of these)

The driver can be found here. Of course, any other RTL8188SU/RTL8188CUS/RTL8188RU/RTL8192CU/RTL8191SU-based USB adaptor should work as well.

RaLink RT28xx/RT-3xxx/RT5xxx-based (1x1/2x2, single/dual band):

Linksys AE-1000 (I own one of these, in order to work, its IDs should be added in RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext/Contents/Info.plist, pre-edited Info.plist for Linksys AE-1000)

The driver for these adaptors can be found on the MediaTek's download site. Any other RT28xx/RT3xxx/RT5xxx USB adaptor should work as well.

Hi Skafo,

I have purhased Belkin's N300 Micro USB WiFi adapter yesterday from Maplin Electronics for about £25 (if I remember well). Bit pricey, but it works like a charm and the router RTL8192SU runs well with both Mountain Lion (10.8) and Windows Seven.

Here are the details:

•Description: http://www.belkin.com/us/F7D2102-Belkin/p/P-F7D2102
•Mountain Lion driver http://www.realtek.com/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?Langid=1&PNid=48&PFid=48&Level=5&Conn=4&DownTypeID=3&GetDown=false&Downloads=true#RTL8192SU


Hope this helps!
Best,

Thumi

Hi guys!!! i bought The tp wn823n USB wifi adapter. I have a working ML 10.8.2 on a lenovo g480 with a Intel core i5 3210m, 8 GB RAM, and, unfortunately, with a BRCM4313 wifi card, not supported (acording to my research).

So, i have two questions for you:

1. What i have to do ti make my USB wifi adapter to work??
2. Is there any chance to make my 4313 card to work too??

i'll be waiting for your reply!!!

greetings from Chile!!

I have the Belking N150 (F9L1001v1), is it normal that I need to start the utility each time to get it connect to my router first? Its not so much an inconvenience, I just forget to start it sometimes when I open internet dependent applications.

Tested on a ML 10.8.3 with a TL-WN725N and works as a charm with the Realtek drives.

Thanks for the info.
