Apple Mac OS 11: Big Sur Compatibility News for ALFA AWUS036ACH and other products
(EDIT 11.24: our team has confirmed fresh driver installs do not work on Big Sur so this post is only for people who already have the product installed on Catalina and are looking to upgrade).
If you already own an ALFA 802.11ac USB WiFi booster and have followed our steps to get it to work on Mac OS 10.15 Catalina, you may be wondering if you upgrade to Big Sur (released by Apple today, November 12th), if your product will still work after the update. Operating system upgrades can often times break hardware.
The good news is we have tested it today and can confirm with the 11.0.1 release the ALFA AWUS036AC and AWUS036ACH still work well.
We have not yet confirmed if you can do a new install the same way you can on Catalina. So if you do not yet own an ALFA AWUS036ACH and are looking to get one and install it on Big Sur, we have not yet confirmed the installer will work. We should have an update on that in the next few days and will post to our blog.
