    Default Product & Vendor ID's

    This is my second attempt at an OSx86 installation. The first, a dual boot on my home built machine with Vista and Kaliway 10.5.2. The Kaliway installation went well with only the BIOS and sound system having to be patched.

    My attention has now switched to a laptop an Advent 8117. Full specification here


    I have installed iAtkos v7 and am pleased to say that after a couple of re-installs I have a 99% working installation. My only problem is the WiFi card will not work. The card is a Ralink RT73 with a RT 2571WF chipset which is recognized by System Profiler as a USB device 802.11 BG WLAN with the following information:

    Product ID: 0x2573
    Vendor ID: 0x148f
    Version: 0.01
    Speed: Up to 480 Mb / Sec
    Manufacturer: Ralink
    Location ID: 0xfd300000

    I have tried kext's from here but the card is still not recognized.

    Can anyone help me in getting this card working?

    I don't know how to boot that way.

    I have just re-installed the Ralink package:
    RTUSB D71w-1.2.4.0_D2500-1.1.3.0 UI-1.6.8.0_2008_12_04.dmg

    In the info.plist I can find my product ID and vendor listed but the card is still not found.

    When running vista I could turn WiFi on and off with a small switch on the front of the laptop when turned on an LED would light up. With a new hard drive and a clean install of osx86 this switch does not seem to be working ie the LED does not light whatever position the switch is in.

    I suppose I could always re-install the drive containing the Vista installation to test if the switch and card is working.

    I can see the card (as a USB device) in System Profiler
