Use a D-Link DWL-G122 USB WiFi Dongle
Authored by: lancaster98 on Feb 26, '08 05:48:57AM

I don't know if anyone ever got this working, but I took the following steps to get this working under Leopard 10.5.1

1. You need to to be able to get onto the router access page from another PC / Mac on your network or know a free IP address in the range DHCP is giving out the dongle might use.
2. Install drivers.
3. Reboot.
4. Plugin dongle
5. Open Prefs pane, select network and enter key as usual.
6. The dongle connects, but you don't have internet yet.
7. Log into the router from another machine and see if you can find the IP address of the dongle. If not, just entering a valid IP address from the DHCP range might work.
8. open Network prefs and the new Ehternet port the drivers created.
9. Tell it you connect using DHCP with manual IP addy
10. Enter IP addy from step 7.
11. Bish bosh, after a few seconds you are connected.
12. You can now switch to DHCP only.
13. IP address is given out to the dongle and you're up and running.
14. Go back to the Dlink Prefs Pane and save the profile so it connects on each reboot.
