About This File

This is a new updated kext and utility directly from MediaTek for the MT7610U and MT7612U network chipset.


This utility was updated and released on January 20th 2016 on MediaTek website. 


I have the Netgear A6210 AC1200-WiFi USB 3.0 Adapter and it works perfectly under OSX 10.11.6 with USB 3.0 and 5GHz networks being recognized.


It should work for any card with one of those two chips.


UPDATE 10/1/2016


I have had some serious trouble updating my system to macOS 10.12 Sierra but I have finally seemed to have gotten it working. When I have done a clean install and installing this package afterwards, It didn't seem to work. However after updating a working copy of El Capitan to Sierra with this package already installed, it seems to work. 


So as of this post, this same package does work under macOS 10.12 Sierra but you might have some trouble like I have until mediatek performs their own official update.


UPDATE 10/26/16


I have finally figured out what is going on with this installer package. When you run this package as is, it will not install the kext on macOS sierra. It will install the wireless utility and all associated files but not the actual kext. I have included the kext as a standalone as well. 


Install the Kext with kext utility then run the installer pkg. Reboot and you will have a perfectly working USB wireless stick.


Confirmed working macOS 10.12.1

Binaries no longer available at the MediaTek site, at least the links I have no longer work, and the A6210 no longer listed under supported products.


Can anyone help? This is a matter of some urgency.

Nevermind the links on the mediatek site are wrong the pengiun link goes to the OSX stuff and the Apple goes to the Linux stuff...
