    Default Is there a Atheros mac driver

    Hi, Are they any drivers for an atheros chipset?

    I found mac drivers for an atheros wifi card but they either only work on PPC or 10.4. Do you guys have any suggestions?

    It is actually for an SMC Wirelss N usb

    Thanks,
    Josh

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for the response, I added the kext and when I restarted, there was no change, no options in SYS Pref. I tried it on a 10.5.5 system, did it need 10.6?

    Thanks,
    Josh

    There are various atheros chipsets,you have to be more specific.
    There is no mac driver for the ar5523,as an example.

    It doesn't tell me what chipset it is on the box. It is a SMC smcwusb-n2
    I googled it, another forum post said : Atheros AR9001U-(2)NG

    Is there a site with all the Atheros drivers?

    Thanks for the help.

    smc.com doesn't even have osx drivers for that device,you may be sol.
    The only alternative would be to find another device with the same chipset
    that has osx drivers and to modify the kext to match your device.

    I know they dont, but i was thinking someone else may have made one for the atheros chipset.
