osx86

trying to install Mac OS on my laptop with Kalyway 10.5.2:

GX600
MSI MS-163A
Windows Vista Home
S/N: 00148-107-941-325
Key: KBYC2-2DRVD-6KRVK-9JTP2-DR2X8

everything worked flawlessly, except the wifi card (and so i added the info below)...

but it turns out the main issue was it was turned off when i turned computer on. exact same issue happens with ethernet. so both works as long as cable is connected and wifi is turned on (the keyboard button) before starting mac os!

I'm using Ralink Setup Assistance 1.2.9.6-prasys (1.2.8.9y) on my updated Mac OS 10.5.5 (didn't need to go further). it's a file called "USBWirelessUtility" and i'm almost positive it came from "Ralink Wireless Drivers Installation Wizard.mpkg", a 1,448,035 bytes file that i'd have found somewhere on the net (maybe ralink website). but it could also be the default application that came with Kalyway.

and one more thing: i think that i could fix few connection issues by setting MTU to 1490 (instead the default 1500, which should present no problem)



-- old

RT2571WF
SI00790D0
0749SI

and the system updates.

they're not working yet.

thanks to ioreg -fl i now know what my wifi card is for sure, and with details:
