    Hi everyone,

    At the end of October I'm planning on buying Leopard to upgrade my Mac Mini G4 1.42Ghz with 1Gb RAM. I'm running 10.4.11 right now currently use a wireless network USB adapter to connect to my wireless router in a different room.

    This is the Adapter I use http://www.sitecom.com/drivers_result.php?groupid=5&productid=526 and everything works perfectly.

    I know its a long shot but has anybody had any problems using these kind of adapters with Leopard? The drivers are only quoted on the homepage for working with Tiger & Panther.

    Anybody know an alternative adapter that works well in Leopard??

    Hard to say for sure, but I am using a D-Link 1340 USB adapter on my mini (see sig) running Leopard and it works just fine. I am using the generic Ralink drivers which uses a program called USB Wireless Connection (or something) to actually hook up to the network. If yours uses the same thing then I would say go ahead. But I would recommend a clone of your current install to ensure that you can go back easily if it doesn't work.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I'm using a program called Wireless Utility RT73 USB in Tiger.

    Is that the same as what you're using?
