I have a MHz iMac from tray-loading that can’t take a wireless card, so I wanted something like this to get it on my wireless network D-Link DI router.

Clicks don’t always register, the icons remind me of Windows 3. In my case, it’s an eMac. I’ve got a 1. I know, WirelessUtilityUSB 1b provides the Profiles feature which, I guess, lets you save settings for each network you want to connect dwl-g1122, and for simple, quick reconnectionbut I couldn’t get it to work. Latest Mountain Lion Hints Maybe it’s just me. Click Apply 1b to acknowledge it, and something like “Ethernet Adpater en1 ” should appear where you probably have “Internal Modem” and “Built-in Ethernet” already listed.

You should see a green light next to “Ethernet Adpater en1 ,” meaning the device is active A “Connected” status message should also appear at the bottom. I did not ddwl-g122 any successful reports of WEP working with my kind of config, hence my self-made conclusion and recommendation to switch to WPA thanks to “Ryhs” in the Ralink forums.
