Use a D-Link DWL-G122 USB WiFi Dongle - revisited
Authored by: borgmac on Oct 09, '06 12:40:46AM
Hi,

Just bought a D_Link DWL-G122 Rev C1 to connect at an old iMac G3 under 10.3.9.
It was working poorly with the driver on the CD, disconnecting all the time.
After downloading from http://www.ralinktech.com/supp-1.htm the driver for the chip RT2571W, it works perfectly!
This is a new driver, dated 24 Aug 2006
RTUSB D70-1.1.3.0 D71W-1.1.5.0 UI-1.2.8.0_2006_08_24.dmg
Have fun!

Use a D-Link DWL-G122 USB WiFi Dongle - revisited

I also bought the d-link dongle (ver b1/firmware 2.2) and it works great. It did not come with any mac drivers on the install disk, but it worked well with the downloaded raitek "drivers." I realize this is probably old hat info for most, but OSX does NOT recognize the dongle. You must use the "Raitek Wireless Utility" program to utilize the dongle, and connect to access points, and it is at least a magnitude better then my iBook G4's built-in Airport Extreme. Since there is no Intel OSx version, the dongle's future is problematic. I only paid ($15 after a mail-in $25 rebate.), so it's not a big issue.

Any tips for H/W version D1??
Authored by: leftcoaster on Oct 27, '06 09:16:41AM

Hi,
I purchased the DWL-G122 usb adapter along with a router in a "wireless starter kit." The router works great -- my roommates have no problems getting online. However -- i received hardware version D1 of the DWL-G122. I followed the instructions about downloading drivers from Ralink, but they do not work. When I called DLink customer support, all they would do was refer me to a company called macwireless.com that sells a USB adapter for $89. (That's a little pricey for me...) Any tips for the D1 version? I may just have to return it and purchase something else.

Thanks!

Confirmed! Exactly the same situation here, it only works with the (recently updated) drivers from here:

What a shame, D-Link!
