Bargain, I have one of these on my Mac ... you may need to trawl the internet for the drivers though
Linux drivers work very well with this, you just download a small firmware file place it in /usr/firmware and reboot and done!

But it's not too reliable mine keeps playing up sometimes.


Download the firmware from the Ralink website - it should be a zip file with rt73.bin file inside it.

Please this file inside /lib/firmware/ and /lib/modules/2.6.xx.x-x.x-default/kernel/drivers/firmware/, I don't know which folder is the correct folder but placing this file in both of these folders will make sure your usb is detected and works.

I'm running openSUSE 11.1 btw.
Thanks for the heads up, just ordered one, heat added!

The driver should be more easily available now, if you look on the product home page here then it has the Mac driver listed as one of the options

Doesn't seem to be getting a great deal of good reviews on Amazon though

Bought one of these from ebay for about the same price and i got 5 years warranty from the seller,and its a great little thing very easy to install and it has never failed on me.

Hot Deal !
This is a pretty cheap and reliable Wi-fi dongle.

I'm waiting for an all-in-one to come out with bluetooth and IR +/- Wifi-N (I can hope) to come out
