Two antennas that close to each other less than 50cm can actually cause damage to the cards. After a kernal panic and a restart, I was able to see both base stations in the utility again, but have not been able to establish a connection to either. Do you already have an account? I had found a trick to get around it, but it was assuming that i had an airport station. It works great – even gets better link percentage than on windows with d-link software. It is recognized by the system as an airport card and displays in the menubar as such.

Use a D-Link DWL-G USB WiFi Dongle – Mac OS X Hints

Am I missing something obvious to get a connection? However, my model is a DWL StiG on Mar 24, ’07 Your name or email address: These are thumpin’ good cans Creaticity: I ended up sending back the C1 version and getting the B1 version again, with the same results.

Read the other posts above to find more details on this.


Yes, my password is: Do you already have an account? I also tried the old drivers 1.

I’m surfing using B1, as I recall the device ID was in system profiler. For a little more money you can get a WiFi adaptor that does not need drivers.

For now I would recommend users steer clear of the G adapter as its compatibility is not certain. You’d probably have to have the antennas almost touching for this to happen, but there is a chance. Last night, I discovered the fix.

Now all I have [up and running] is my PowerMac G4. Radio Shack has ver.

I looked around the web and some places said that after I had found a trick to get around it, but it was assuming that i had an airport station. The transmitters in WiFi cards are powerful enough to destroy the sensitive receivers if connected directly.

anyone had luck hacking a driver for d-link DWL-G132 (usb wireless)?

Even though you can see the Airport slot in the Dual Core system there are no rails to support it and the Antenna wire doesn’t fit the Airport Extreme card. I don’t see WPA encryption on the web site however. Ask a question and give support.


I think that’s why some dw,-g132 are having trouble here.

D-Link Technical Support

I don’t know if anyone ever got this working, but I took the following steps to get this working under Leopard They wrote back and said that it was not a Mac-compatible product. I think I’m gonna write a simple walkthrough of all the steps, from beginning to end.

Click here for complete coverage of Lion on Macworld. Log into the router from another machine and see if you can find the IP address of the dongle.

I had WEP turned on for both and was never able to actually establish a connection. There are different versions of these two cards around, so you cannot tell by the model name alone which chipset you have. This was kinda fun
