    I am having all sorts of problems with my Macbook Pro early 2011 with 10.8.2 installed.
    The built-in wireless stopped working and I have tried everything possible to get it back working. After reinstalling OSX it worked for about 2 days and now its out again, so I give up.

    I am now looking for a cheap USB WIFI adapter to use until I can afford get the actual card replaced.

    I just ordered a mini adapter off ebay that claimed it worked with the latest version of OSX, but it came with one of those mini cds so I could not get the drivers to install. I tried taking the data off the disk and onto a thumb drive, but that didn't work.

    Any suggestions on a USB wifi adapter that works would be greatly appreciated. I have searched all over the web and give up and hope one of you could point me in the right direction

    www.macsales.com has a usb wireless n adapter that is compatible with OSX 10.5 Leopard and up. It's made by Newertech and the one that I'm going to buy as soon as I can justify the expense.

    here's the link to the actual device:
