I don't know if the chipset is supported in passive mode. Perhaps he was not giving the full REAL story... I'm sure if there are proper mac drivers it does work with Kismac, but only in ACTIVE mode. Which to me doesn't mean that it WORKS with kismac. On 4/14/07, Jon Steinmetz <jon@xxxxxxxxxxxxx> wrote:
So on a lark I bought this USB device for use on a MacBook Pro because the seller said it worked with KisMac. I have so far not been able to get it to work. KisMac version: r227 (I have not tried 228 yet) Mac being used: Machine Name: MacBook Pro 15" Machine Model: MacBookPro1,1 Processor Name: Intel Core Duo Processor Speed: 2 GHz Number Of Processors: 1 Total Number Of Cores: 2 L2 Cache (per processor): 2 MB Memory: 2 GB Bus Speed: 667 MHz Boot ROM Version: MBP11.0055.B08 SMC Version: 1.2f10 Serial Number: W8609D20VJ1 Sudden Motion Sensor: State: Enabled What system profiler reports the device as: Version: 48.10 Bus Power (mA): 500 Speed: Up to 480 Mb/sec Manufacturer: ZyDAS Product ID: 0x1215 Vendor ID: 0x0ace The ebay URL is <http://cgi.ebay.com/Mac-WarDriving-USB-54mb-WiFi-Kit- w-Folding- Antenna_W0QQitemZ120090024573QQihZ002QQcategoryZ61816QQrdZ1QQssPageNameZ WD1VQQcmdZViewItem> so if these devices don't work then people here should steer clear. It looks like the the ZyDas chipset supported by KisMac is 0x1201 so maybe the seller was confused. Has anyone gotten these devices to work? Does anyone have a similar device that does work? I like the small size of this device over the larger external USB boxes not to mention the external antenna jack which is a must for me.
