Just bought a new D-Link DUB-1312 USB 3 - Gigabit Ethernet adapter, which is supposed to work on Macs (10.6-10.8).

Currently I get no response from it at all, none of the lights coming on or anything, and not showing up on either of my Macs (including in Disk Utility or Network Preferences).

According to the info at D-Link the instructions to set it up on a Mac are on the CD-ROM that came with it, but I have not been able to get the CD Rom to work yet, so I can't access the instructions, and D-Link don't seem in any hurry to answer my request to supply them to me directly (via email).

Can't find anything on Google either.

I got it from eBay, and don't want to return it yet until I give the wisdom of MacRumours a try:

Has anybody set one of these up on a Mac? Can you tell me how to do it?

D-Link supplied the software drivers, very easy install, and it is now working fine on both Macs. :) :apple:

Case closed.

Just bought the same adapter for my MBA. Alas, no DVD player and can't seem to find the driver online.
Can you mail me the one you obtained? Or instruct me who to contact, what mail address?
Send me a PM for my email!
Cheers

Apologies for not responding, I have not logged in since just before you posted that question.

Glad you got it fixed.

OSX Yosemite?

Has anybody been able to get the DUB 1312 to work on 10.9 or 10.10?

I've got it to work on a Windows with proper drivers, but it won't seem to work on 10.10.

Any suggestions?

Cheers!

I haven't actually tried wired connection on Yosemite 10.10 yet.
Will try as soon as I get home and post the results of my investigation.

cheers all

Home now.

I had version driver 1.40 for DUB-1312 and it worked in both Mavericks and now Yosemite (10.9 and 10.10). Snooped around a little and found a new driver version 1.60. It's here

http://www.dlink.com/be/nl/support/product/dub-1312-usb-3-gigabit-ethernet-adapter

Rebooted after ver. 1.60 install and everything works fine.



[ An important observation, really important, is that my first link from Apr 29 2014 now links to a driver version 1.00. You don't want it! ]



Have a nice weekend all

Thanks! Didn't realise, but i had gotten v1.4 from the Aus site, but hadn't seen v1.6

I'll test it out tonight also, but cheers for the reply!

I just wanted to confirm for others who may come across this thread.
The above driver (v1.6) definitely DOES work with OSX 10.10.

After you click the link provided by anlu4433 (quoted above), scroll down to Drivers, click the drop down box and select "DEU_DRV_MacOS_1_6_0_RevA."

The description will say "Current driver for: MacOS 10.6 - 10.9," however it does work with 10.10 as well.
The drivers that came on the installation disk did not work so you must download the above driver.

Just found out there's a new version (again), version 2.10.100 and the date is 9/24/2018.

Just installed it on MacOS 10.14.1. Installed just fine and it works. Actually it works better than before. Prior to this version (don't remember my previous version number, sorry), after a fresh restart of my computer, I had to unplug and re-plug the adapter for it to start working. With this new version it just works, no need to re-plug it. Also, you need administrators access to install this and a system pop-up prompts you to give access to the install program from System Settings -> Security and Privacy.
