TRENDnet 802.11n adapters now Mac-friendly

Mac Wireless USB Adapters

TRENDnet has announced Mac compatibility for its Wireless N USB Adapter (TEW-644UB) and 300Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter (TEW-624UB). To make this possible, TRENDnet has written its own drivers that lets either work with Mac OS X Leopard and Tiger. The adapter supports MIMO technology to improve its wireless range and connects both in a client-to-client mode between computers as well as traditional links to access points.

The 300Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter offers the same functions as the stock Wireless N USB Adapter but boosts the theoretical speed of the connection. According to the company, both the Wireless N USB Adapter and 300Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter will be available with an in-the-box driver within a few months. In the meantime, users can buy the normally Windows-only version today and download either Mac utility driver directly from the website.

    Its RALink drivers

    The article is inaccurate to state that trendnet wrote their own drivers. This is a RALink chipset that uses RALink drivers. All the usual limitations apply, ie no 802.1x authentication ("WPA Enterprise").
