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.

PCI/mPCI/CB (RT2860)
Drivers Released: 12/04/2008
Chipset: RT28xx: 1.1.1.0
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.
