4.0 out of 5 stars Good for Mac OS X, Great Price, 9 Jan. 2009

This review is from: Edimax EW-7711UAN Wireless nLITE High Gain USB Adapter (Electronics)
This is a really well priced adapter especially giving an older Apple Mac wireless capability or indeed upgrading beyond older Airport wireless cards to operate with more modern wireless routers with higher WPA/WPA2 encryption.
I use it wlth a 2001 vintage iMac G4 which only has USB 1.1 - but don't expect it to be as fast as with USB 2.0.
The only downside is that there is no accompanying literature to help with the install - it's all on the CD, see 'Driver-Utility for Mac', open the dmg disk image and select your version of Mac OS X.
However if you have 10.4 Tiger, beware the driver on the disk doesn't work and you need to download: USB RT2870 version from [...]
Find USBWirelessUtility in your Applications folder and run it before plugging the adapter into your USB.
Set-up is fairly automatic - just go to 'Site Survey', to select your router, then 'Add Profile', and then enter your WEP/WPA key under 'Authentification & Security'.
