How to use a Zydas wireless device on a Mac
Authored by: igadget on May 20, '08 02:08:56PM

I picked up the updated driver from softpedia. which is linked to the German site one., Had to log in as the system default account wasn't able to just authenticate a standard user. I didn't need to log in a s root under 10.3.9. Already had installed Airport. you just need to make sure that the dongle is not plugged in prior to doing the driver update. then reboot, then connect the dongle. I had good luck seeing remote AP's suggest that the user having troubles search for wifi-wok on google.

This version of the driver supports WPA(2) and WPA-PSK.
Still requires a 1024x768 screen otherwise you cannot click ok on the security config screen. Tab doesn't cycle the buttons.

I got a Zydas 1215 USB 2.0 WLAN dongle working in Snow Leopard. I got the Wi-Fire installer from and installed it (it installs drivers for the 1211 and the 1211Bmodel (aka 1215). You must use the supplied WiFire app to actually connect.

I had a lot of trouble getting it to work, with the app repeatedly failing to respond, with reboots required. Eventually I disabled WEP security on my ad-hoc connection to my Android phone running a tether app, and then connected right away!
