You will need seperate drivers. The KisMac drivers only put it into rfmon mode and sniff afaik. You will need real drivers to acutally use it on Tiger. I don't know what drivers though.

I've bought a Apacer USB prism2 wireless for Kismac and it works like a charm.
Except that I havent been able load the driver to get it working as a external wifi for Tiger itself.
What is the correct driver to be loaded when not running Kismac.

Kismac does this in the code
        [md setObject:@"Prism2 USB device" forKey:@"deviceName"];
        [md setObject:@"WaveDriverUSBIntersil" forKey:@"driverID"];

So I imagine I need to load either an Insterstil.kext / WaveDriver.kext

But since they are not included (cannot find them), I was wondering is there actually a driver required? Since what I found by stepping the source, It only creates an USB IO interface.

Am I missing something here?
