    Need advice to purchase a new USB wireless adapter
    Hi,

    I have a Macbook core2 2009 model. The built in airport is a bit buggy (I am not sure if it has spoilt or not, I am going to do an OS restore from the Time machine as I suspect some files might be corrupted).

    Anyway, I wish to get a USB wireless adapter. I know many 3rd party vendors are not supported as they do not have a Mac OS driver. I have research many sites. Some suggests ralink driver but it does not work for my TPlink722N

    I found this thread -->
    http://www.mac-forums.com/forums/int...-n-dongle.html

    The thread is a bit outdated as the Belkin has a newer F7xx usb adapter not F5xxxx

    Most of the threads are old as nowadays ppl just use buildin Airport. Not sure if anyone has any luck with the newer Wireless N gadgets.

    Many thanks!

    What about the airport on your macbook is "buggy?" I would try to fix it first before just going out and buying unnecesarry hardware.
