    Help! OS upgrade killed my wireless USB device!!!
    The week before last, I installed an OS X upgrade on my wife's Mac Mini. She was using a wireless USB device to connect to our Airport Extreme, since the Mac Mini was not wireless-enabled. The upgrade seems to have instantly killed the device - the indicator light suddenly would not stay on, and of course the connection was gone.
    Does anyone know anything about this? Should I revert to an older version? If so, how? Should I restore from an older backup on the external hard drive backup I have, or...?

    What brand and model is this USB Wifi dongle? There might be a way around it. I take it you are running 10.4.11?

    Hi dtravis7!

    I'm using a MacWireless 11g USB Stick WITH OS 10.4.11.
    Any help is much appreciated. My wife is a housebound cancer patient right now, and I really need to fix this for her - our other Mac is a Macbook that I need to take to work each day.
