This beta is for new installs only. If you already have software for your AWUS036NH or AWUS036NEH on your Mac, please uninstall it in full before installing this beta package.

Can anyone comment as to whether this actually works before i buy the Alfa AWUS036NH for my Macbook Pro 15’ pre-retina, running OSX 10.8.2?

Works fine with 10.8.2, thanks a lot!

I can’t get this driver to work. I’m running 10.8.2 and I’ve hooked up a new AWUS036NH. The instructions that come with the driver are absolutely terrible — a complete waste. It’s not at all helpful to document screens on the app without any explanation of how or why they should be used. After installing the driver, there’s a new “RaLink” Wireless Utility, but after struggling with it for a couple hours, I can’t make it to anything. It’s not even a properly written application: you can’t apple-tab to it, you can’t paste data into it, and none of the settings seem to stick. Who wrote this? The utility sees my local network… and does nothing. This week I’ve purchased a AWUS036H, a AWUS036NH, and a AWUS036NHR and all of them are a waste of time: none of them work on a Mac 10.8.2.

To commenter “frustrated”- the NHR and H models are not currently compatible with 10.8. For the NH model, that is compatible as other commenters have confirmed. If you are having trouble please contact our support department directly for help and we will be glad to help. Thanks, and sorry for your frustration.

Got the AWUS036NH MAC driver on the CD-ROM coming with the unit. Installed the AWUS036NH WIN driver first onto a WIN7, working perfectly. It doesn´t work though on my MACBook Air 13" running on YOSEMITE 10.10.3. Any idea ? Thank you!
