Mini: Can I use a usb 802.11g usb 2.0 adapter for wireless?

I couldn't find the answer in other posts, although people suggested it
as a "reasonable costly" upgrade.

I have a netgear wg111t usb G adapter.  I don't know how to get OSX
10.3.7 to recognize it on my 1.25 Ghz, 1Gb Ram Mac Mini.  I switched
from mac to pc 2 years ago, and now am coming back.

Can I?  How?  Any ideas?

Thank you so much!

I futzed around with a couple different usb to wireless adapters with no 
joy.  Finally just bought another Airport Express, plugged it into the 
wall, ethernet to the AE and ran the setup on my master to pick it up.

Works flawlessly with a hell of a lot less hassle.

just make sure you use RT2500 chipset and it will fine, you'll need to 
also download their software which is on their site somewhere...

here is the list of devices that use the RT2500 chip

Something like FT245BM for USB 2.0 ? Parallel -> USB with real USB 2.0 bandwidth ?
Hello, is there a chip, in functionality like a FT245BM for USB 2.0 ? I found on websites mentioning the FT245BM compatible for USB 2.0, but i think they don't use USB 2.0, because transfer rate is "only" 1 MByte/s, which looks like high speed USB. Is there a faster parallel USB chip, which achieves more than 1 MByte / s ? I think with USB 2.0 there must be at least a factor of 10 to this speed ?

USB 2.0
Hi all: In order to connect to an external 2.5 harddisk with USB, I have tried three different USB 2.0 PCMCIA (Cardbus) cards (Belkin, Dynex and Zonet) on my Compaq Presario 2197 (AMD Athlon XP 2800). The cards can all be recognized, but only on the Zonet card the hard drive is recognized. Even so, the speed is very slow. Transfering a file of 1GB will take about 25-27 minutes. I have also tried an Acomdata external harddrive, which works great with an IBM laptop, and see the same thing. BTW, the time for transfering a 1GB file on the IBM is about 6-7 minutes. It is not as quick as ...

2 USB ports on Canon i960. Can I use 1.1 on Win 98SE and 2.0 on Win XP?
The Canon i960 printer has two USB ports on the back, one for 1.1 speed and another for 2.0 speed. Question: can I hook up a computer running Win 98SE that uses only the 1.1 speed to the 1.1 port while simultaneously hooking up a new computer running Win XP to use the 2.0 port on the printer? Would it damage the printer if both computers were on at the same time or would I have to keep one turned off at all times to protect the printer. Never mind the EULA, yeesh. If I used a print server, I don't know that it would allow the printer to differentiate between the slow speed and the fast speed because only one cable comes out of the print server to the printer, and that would be the slow speed default USB port. ...

USB 802.11g wireless adapter for Linux
Can anyone recommend an 802.11g USB wireless adapter which is supported by the Linux kernel? I am running the latest Debian testing on i386. Currently I use a device supported by ndiswrapper & the windows driver but this situation isn't ideal. For example I have to reinstate the kernel module every time I upgrade the kernel. And the windows drivers are non-free. And it's all a bit delicate in terms of stability. I've spent quite a lot of time on a search engine (google) reading up on linux wireless support and reviewing the archives of mailing lists and Usenet. I've uncov...

PS/2 to USB adapters & Mac Mini?
As soon as my tax return hits the bank, I plan on going out and picking up a Mac Mini (provided I can still find one in stock locally). I'm an old PC user, and for some inexplicable reason, don't have a USB keyboard... go figure. I already have a PS/2 KVM switch that I'd like to use. I know I can purchase an adapter that will allow me to plug in the keyboard and mouse leads and converts to USB. I'm assuming this will work, but figured I'd ask those more knowledgeable (and definitely more experienced) with Mac hardware than myself. Can I pretty much co...

can I enhance usb capabilities of my laptop thru a port replicator with usb-2.0?
Hi I have a hp business laptop, with just 2 usb-1.0 ports. If I buy a compatible port replicator with usb-2.0 that connects to the docking connector in the bottom, will it help me to get the usb 2.0 support?

Convert USB 3.0 to USB 2.0 Crazy?

Anyone Using Microsoft Wireless 802.11 USB with a Mac?

DSE (XH8227) USB 2.0 WLAN 802.11g on Linux
I looked for native Linux drivers for this device: DSE XH8227 USB Wireless 802.11g It uses the ISL3880 wireless chipset which IS supported in the 2.6.9 kernel of my Xandros Linux 3.0 system.....as a PCI-based device. But the USB part is not supported (yet?). (www.prism54.org) The USB hardware support is via the NET2200 chipset. So, fallback position was to compile and install ndiswrapper v1.0rc1 from sourceforge.net...which would let me use the WinXP drivers for this device with Linux. ndiswrapper 1.0rc1 compiled and installed perfectly. The WinXP drivers in directory /drivers/2kxp fr...

64 bit driver for Trendnet USB 2.0 wireless adapter ?
Have been struggling to install a Trendnet TWE 424UB 802.11g USB 2.0 adapter on my Opteron 144 based desktop under Ubuntu Linux (Dapper Drake Flight3). Can't find a native driver, so I tried ndiswrapper with a SiS driver for windows, and it's not working. It can recognize the hardware, but am unable to load ndiswrapper. Anything I can do, short of abandoning and buying another adapter? I downloaded the ndiswrapper source (version 1.10), made a debian package, and installed it. installed the sis163u.inf (downloaded from Sis) driver for AMD64 using ndiswrapper.

How to force kernel to use a USB 2.0-compatible device (ehci_hcd) as a USB 1.1 device (uhci_hcd)
Hi. I've been using Linux for a long time now (very actively for almost 10 years now), and now I'm stuck with a configuration problem that hopefully should be possible to work around. I have a Linksys WUSB54GP wireless network adapter. It works well under Windows, and even under Linux on my desktop PC (even using it as a USB 2.0 device). But on my laptop it's a different story. To cut a long story short (see http://bugzilla.kernel.org/show_bug.cgi?id=6374), I'm getting unexpected "USB disconnect" after a few hours (independently of how much the device was used) when...

USB 2.0 vs USB 1.0 on PB G4

USB 3.0 Hub treatment of USB 2.0 connections.
My old USB 2.0 hub (7 port with external power) had been getting increasingly flaky over time with various devices dropping out and re-connecting (printer, keyboard wireless receiver and so on) so I bought a new one. An Anker 7 port USB 3.0 with ext. p/s. I had no USB 3.0 peripherals when I first hooked it up. When looking at system profiler there were no USB 3.0 devices - not even the hub - showing. Fastest interface was shown as 480 Mb/s. Today I received a couple USB 3.0 docks and after initially hooking them straight to the Mac, I tried, as an experiment, passing the USB 3.0 through the hub. Did not connect. So I powered off the hub and disconnected it from the Mac, then reconnected it all. The disk appeared. And the Highspeed USB 3.0 appeared in profile (at 5 Gb/s). So once it's running with USB 2.0 devices only connected, the hub doesn't take to new 3.0 devices showing up. Once they're there, it's fine. Copy rate via the hub from the disk on the 3.0 was the same as a direct connection. (I've since put the USB 3.0 disk directly to the computer). I had assumed that USB 2.0 traffic would be "wrapped" in USB 3.0 and passed to the computer and unwrapped. But it appears it remains electrically and logically USB 2.0. (Then I found this: http://via-labs.com/en/images/products/vl812/vl812-blkdiagram.jpg implying that USB 2.0 and 3.0 follow different hardware paths (not clear if those ...

Review: Airlink AWLL3025 54Mbps Wireless-G USB 2.0 Adapter
I bought this at outpost.com a couple of months ago. It is very convenient and works as expected. If your USB ports are very close to each other, this will make adjacent USB ports unusable due to its size. However, it comes with a cable. If you use the cable, there is no issue with the space. My router is D-Link and I have enabled WEP. This works fine with my current setup. Sometimes when I restore my computer from standby or hybernate mode, the network is not recognized right away. Given enough time (few seconds to a minute), I suspect that it will work. I get restless and force...
