    Hi all,

    Just to share: for those who are trying to install the driver for TP-Link's TL-WDN3200 (chipset should be RT5572?) USB wireless adapter for Mac OS, you can find it here:

    Choose to download the one that says: USB(RT2870/RT2770/RT3X7X/RT537X).

    Open that up, install it;
    Then open your "System Preferences"->"Network";
    It should then automatically detect the new network connection.

    Got this to work on my Macbook Pro running on 10.6.8.

    btw, i decided to buy a USB wireless adapter in order to solve my "No Airport card installed" problem. Tried everything that Apple's tech help forum suggested but to no avail. Also didn't want to pay the possible hefty repair cost. :p

    Unfortunately this driver does not seem to work with the PowerMac G5 tower (running OS X Leopard 10.5.6) I just inherited.

    The TL-WDN3200 shows up as a WAN device in System Profiler but there seems to be no way to add it as a network device in the Network pane of System Preferences.

    Found this online that will work for Yosemite 10.10.2

    Download the one that says: version 5.4 (Nov 27, 2014)- for BearExtender models.

    Big thanks to the person who first found the solution and BearExtender for still having the file for users to download.
    No thanks to Yosemite developers for over-looking at so many problems.
    Btw the load-up speed for the Yosemite is horrendous.
