    Smile Working RTL8187L USB Wifi (Alfa AWUS036h + Dell Dimension 5150) on iDeneb 10.5.6

    ello, im not sure if this helps anyone out there that may have tried this or is still presently having issues, but i may have found a magic, seemingly regular, way to make an Alfa High Power AWUS036H USB wireless device work on a Dell Dimension 5150 desktop with iDeneb 10.5.6. I may have to start fresh and verify this method, but for now based on memory is fine as i still have the tabs open as well in firefox

    My Setup


    Software Needed



    Steps taken
    1. Install the Alfa client and drivers
    2. Reboot computer as requested by the installer
    3. For me this is where i went WTF as the wifi device did not work after reboot
    4. Install the RALink device drivers
    5. Reboot computer (possibly not needed)
    6. And then watch the magic. This could only apply to my specific computer and specific wifi device. Im not sure. You might only need the RALink drivers but i found that Alfa provided the client interface (seeing list of AP's) that seemed to be missing.


    Issue I had: My internet is setup kinda janky because im pretty far from the main wireless router. I get on the internet via an AP Repeater that is in between the actual router and myself. This extends the range by repeating the signal. This may have been a complicating factor when it came to actually logging into my wireless network.

    Since I knew this device did indeed work on a real Mac and it was able to connect to the same wireless network without issue, i figured the reason i wasnt able to connect was the wireless encryption of the overall setup. Which ended up being the case, so i changed the routers from WPA2-Personal (tkip or aes) to WPA-Personal (aes) and wham, bam, thank god for internet on osx86, ma'am.

    Hope this helps, if you have any questions or issues drop a post back here. Im not sure if ill be able to assist you as im not ninja, but surely someone else might be able to.
