    It is a common AX88772 chip - which is a software bridge. (As used in modern Linksys adapters)

    You'd be better off using a Pegasus based adapter like the ones sold here:

    Pegasus based adapters have a hardware (on adapter) bridge - are faster, more reliable, and you don't run the risk of it being broken by a future Apple software update
