Mac OS 10.12 Sierra Beta for Alfa AWUS036NHR, AWUS036ACH, and more

October 04, 2016

We have a beta version of Mac OS 10.12 Sierra drivers for the models AWUS036EAC, AWUS036AC, AWUS036ACH, AWUS036NHR, AWUS036NHV and U24N. This does NOT work with AWUS036NH. If you are upgrading from a previous version of Mac OS, be sure to uninstall any previous Alfa software before running the beta installer.

IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT BETA SOFTWARE: Publication of beta software does not mean that Rokland Technologies is advertising compatibility or offering technical support for the above products and Mac OS 10.12 Sierra. Please review product pages for what operating systems we advertise specific models as compatible with. Beta software may be buggy or incompatible with some Macs. Beta software is for existing owners of the above products and products should not be purchased for the sole purpose of using with Mac OS 10.12 Sierra since we cannot guarantee stability.

To use it, download the package and open it on your Mac and run the installer inside. Here is a PDF guide showing you how to connect to a network once installed.

Hi, I try to activate a Alfa Network AWUS036ACH on my MacBook Air running OSX 10.13.5 and can see that the OS does see the device once I connect it the USB-plug:
802.11n NIC:

Product ID: 0×8812 Vendor ID: 0×0bda (Realtek Semiconductor Corp.) Version: 0.00 Serial Number: 123456 Speed: Up to 480 Mb/sec Manufacturer: Realtek Location ID: 0×14200000 / 9 Current Available (mA): 500 Current Required (mA): 500 Extra Operating Current (mA): 0

I did install the latest driver from the ALFA-site but the utility in the MacOS-toolbar does still report ‘’No Wireless NIC Plug in’.

What am I missing?

Cheers, Berni
