Hello

I have been trying to install mackintosh for a while on my computer and I have installed all of them like the Captain, Yosemite and some others that I do not remember, everything is correct when installing the system, and configuring it for the first time does not let me connect to the WI- FI of my house (I think I do not have the kexts), and I start the multi beast to see if I can install some and install one that looks like the name of mine, restart the hackintosh and nothing ...

I have an adapter that is: Realtek RTL8192CE
I have the driver CD that clearly comes for Windows and Linux, and I thought that Linux is like the Mac, and if you could do a kext of this driver for Hackintosh as it would help many people, and if you could not I could Say if there is one already done or if it is available for a hackintosh?

I would also like you to advise me which system (hackintosh) I would like to install.

Specifications:

Intel Core I5-3470 3.20 GHZ
16 GB ram
NVIDIA GeForce gt 710
WIFI ADAPTER: Realtek RTL8192CE


Thank you very much

Sometimes kexts for Linux will work on a Hackintosh but I don't think they are universally compatible by any means. I assume you are talking about a USB wifi adapter in your post. Since Apple computers only used built in wifi it can be a challenge to find a USB wifi adapter that works natively in a Hackintosh.

Look for adapters that are specifically advertised as being compatible with the Mac OS you want to use. I found one recently that works with High Sierra perfectly. It came with a driver disk that included drivers advertised as compatible for Mac OS up through Sierra but I found the Sierra driver (kext) works fine for High Sierra:

It did not work until I installed the Mac driver from the supplied disk and then it came to life.

my computer is desktop and the adapter is connected by PCI
