?Mini GUIDE] Asus USB N13 Wifi Hackintosh Dongle?

?? ? ? ? ? ? ??

?

 

This guide was inspired by InsanelyMac user?rodrigocunha?.?I take no credit for the development of these files or credit for compiling them.

Original guide found?http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/299948-usb-wifi-updated-ralinkmediatek-rt2870-rt2770-rt3x7x-rt537x-rt5572/

 

 

Intro:

 

This is a mini informative guide written for user's wanting to enable their ASUS Wifi USB-N13 Wireless Dongle in OSX 10.7 - 10.10 Yosemite. This dongle is confirmed to work in 10.10.1. This model uses the Ralink RT2870 Wifi Chipset. This guide may also work for user's with other USB Dongles that possess the same Ralink chipset. Real Mac user's may also find this guide helpful.

 

Asus supplies drivers for this USB dongle on their website but only support to 10.7 Lion. The 10.7 Lion Kexts on ASUS's site, combined with their ASUS Wireless Utility.app will enable connection in OSX 10.7-10.10, however being that it is not updated for support in 10.8+, it causes issues with proper shutdown on Hackintoshes and other known issues. The drivers included in this guide for 10.8+ are not ASUS drivers.

 

Asus's Site in case you are interested: ?http://www.asus.com/Networking/USBN13/

 

Note: Confirm if your USB dongle has the Ralink RT2870 chipset before attempting to install these kexts.

 

 

Download the attached zip file here: ?

 

 

10.7 Lion

?

  • Open the 10.7 folder?
  • Run the USBLionWireless.pkg - Reboot
  • Open the Asus Wireless Utility application?
  • Enjoy

?

10.8 - 10.10?(No wireless Utility but a Pref. Pane)

 

  • Open the correct folder for your OSX Installation
  • Install ??RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext ? to ? /System/Library/Extensions
  • Install ??DWA-140WirelessUtility.prefPane ?to ?\System\Library\PreferencePanes\
  • Repair Permissions - Reboot

 

 

Thanks to InsanelyMac user rodrigocunha for his guide and supplying the files for Ralink RT2870 chipsets. Enjoy!!!

10.8 - 10.10 (No wireless Utility but a Pref. Pane)

Open the correct folder for your OSX Installation

Install RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext to /System/Library/Extensions

Install DWA-140WirelessUtility.prefPane to \System\Library\PreferencePanes\

Repair Permissions - Reboot

Don't forget to use kext-dev-mode=1

I copied the preference panes in the / System / Library / PreferencePanes , I installed the kext with kext wizzard and set kext - dev - mode = 1 but DWA - 140 pref panes does not see my dongle
