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.

    • Hey guys, this is my first post on this forum.   I've installed High Sierra on my box.   These are my settings:   Intel Core i5 3570k (Intel HD 4000) MSI Z77A-G41 8GB RAM 120GB SSD + 1TB HDD   I'm using an HDMI cable with a monitor resolution 1920x1080   Everything is working fine... I've got my LAN working after installing some kexts.   But now I can't have my VGA working properly (some glitches and slowdowns).   I've tried alot of things that I've found on the internet, like changing config.plist on Clover with some different settings. But nothing worked for me... even youtube videos showing how to get it to work...   Can you guys help me please?   Thanks!

    • Hi You might use Apple Disk Utility to clone the disk. May be you must  write a disk image of your Startup disk first. Carbon CopyCloner will do it too ( EVEN IF THE DISK IS IN USE). Then you must install Clover on the Disk and copy the contents of the efi Partition of your startup dist to the Clone. Voila thats it.
    • I have an HP desktop that is running Niresh Mavericks. I have a second computer that is identical. I haven't been able to get the distro to install. Is there a way to copy the boot drive that works now and put that copied drive into the second machine. The second machine allows me to install the Niresh distro, but then won't boot from it at all. Can I use an Ultimate Boot CD to clone the drive?  Also, I check both computers and they are both running the exact same bios and settings.
