Ralink 2760 Drivers for OSX
I purchased a GXT Digital Pro Wireless N network card from FutureShop for $24.97 (Reg $29.99).
It uses the Ralink Chipsets 2760 + 2720.
I checked the chip on the card and mine is a 2760T.
After looking around I couldn’t find any drivers for this series so I just grabbed the 28xx series mac drivers from Ralinks website.
Drivers Released: 12/04/2008
Chipset: RT28xx: 22.214.171.124
OSX Support: 10.3/10.4/10.5
I installed them and rebooted, a configuration tool appeared and I was able to configure and successfully use the WiFi.
The only thing I noticed was quite a few CRC errors, but so far nothing seems to be affected.
I think it’s best to purchase a card that uses the Broadcom chipset, they seem to work allot better.
Also the card does not show up as an AirPort and is listed under network as en1.
BSD Device Name: en1
