I have bought this product today :
RO80211BI-USB , it's an usb wireless device based on prism 2.x chipset.
On kismac it works correctly,but can i use it also in mac os X ( such a network device
to connect on the other wi-fi networks, etc. ? ) what driver should i use ? I try belikin
driver and IOexperts driver and they don't work.
Thx all.

Best bet is the D-Link DWL-122 driver, but you will have to hack it. First install it. Then open package contents on both intersil drivers in the Extensions folder. Then open Info.plist in both of the open Contents folders with either BBEdit or the Property List Editor. Then duplicate the IOKitPersonality for the DWL. Give it a name, and then replace its vendor and product IDs with the ones for your device as gotten from Apple System Profiler. Throw away the kextcache and reboot.

It's complicated, but it works with the Syntax wireless USB Prism2 device, so it may well work for yours.
