The DWL-G122 does not work.
Authored by: bpatel on Mar 26, '05 03:00:33PM

Looks like there might be some magic voodoo or at least specific firmware versions to make the dlink DWL-G122 work with a Mac.

Thus far, using my USB2 native iMac G5 and Mac mini, I can't get the DWL-G122 to get recognized by the Ralink drivers .

Neither the 1.0.6 or 1.0.7 drivers work. They install a generic WirelessUtilityUSB application which does not recognize the USB adapter.

System Profiler does see the USB adapter and gives the following profile:

Speed: Up to 480 Mb/sec
Product ID: 14084 ($3704)
Bus Power (mA): 500
Vendor ID: 8193

The adapater I got is Model DWL-G122, HW Ver A2, FW Ver 1.01 P/N BWLG122NA.A2.

For now I would recommend users steer clear of the G122 adapter as its compatibility is not certain.

The DWL-G122 does not work.

Not sure if you figured this out or not, but I was running into the same problem with a bondi rev A iMac running 10.3. I later discovered there are 2 installers I needed to run from Ralintech to get things working. I'm using version 1.09 and it works great (even after sleep).

1.) Download and unzip version 1.09
2) Install the USB driver package first (STA_2500USB)
3) Restart and wait... (for some reason, it takes a good 20 minutes for the resart to complete...)
4) Install the _MACOSX package.
5) Restart and wait again...
6) Attach the DWL-G122 dongle and the wireless utility will open.
7) Open the network preferences and you'll get a pop up telling you about the new network connection. From that point just follow the instructions from D-Link (BTW, I couldn't get their driver to work..)
