Use a D-Link DWL-G122 USB WiFi Dongle
Authored by: prock77 on Dec 28, '05 02:15:56PM

I'm surfing using 10.2.8 now. This tip worked wonders! I'm connecting to a DLink DI-624 wireless router and the only problem I haven't been able to solve is that I need to set the wireless router to broadcast the SSID. WEP and WPA-PSK works fine, though.

I got the odd kernel panic too, but I found they don't happen if you plug in and unplug the usb adapter when you're logged in. It's not detected if you boot with it plugged in and if you shutdown/restart with it plugged in then you're risking a kernel panic.

The only other thing is that I need to do a little 'coaxing' to get a DHCPOFFER. I've even had to go so far as to manually set the IP address but after I do that once I can switch back to full DHCP and it will connect automatically across reboots until I try to connect to a different wireless network.
