  • Nice item but no OS X support

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    Works with Windows, Linux, but not OS X. Does what it's supposed to. 10baseT is good enough for internet access and troubleshooting bad NICs and other network problems

    Cons:

    No OS X support. This adapter uses the Davicom 9601 chipset which doesn't have an OS X driver.

    OtherThoughts:

    I've been tempted to write one but I'd need help from someone with experience in OS X kernel extension drivers. The source code for the linux drivers is available on the Davicom website and several other open source USB OS X ethernet card drivers exist so someone else could potentially write one nudge nudge hint hint.

    Bottomline:

    Good product, just was hoping for OS X support.
