Yes, this page is probably going to finally let you get your cheap USB Wifi Adaptor working!
…You’re welcome! :)
I bought the Dragon ® 150Mbps Wireless N Nano USB Adapter from Amazon and couldn’t get it to work with my macbook because of the slot-loading drive.
After googling around, I found a lot of people talking about where to download the driver but after about a hundred cycles of download, install, uninstall, I decided to get MacGyver on this.
I actually cut out an adapter for small cd to full size using a dremel tool. Doesn’t look pretty but it worked. So for anyone not willing to risk putting garbage in their optical drive like I was, here’s the software from that CD. Enjoy. Just be sure to uninstal the last versions you installed that didnt work.
Apparently a lof these little wifi dongles work using the same part, a realtek chip.
So this may even work for similar inexpensive USB Network Adaptors. The mini CD that came with mine reads: Wireless-N USB Adaptor. RTL8188_RTL8192. The Disk contained two folders but I zipped and uploaded the one that wasnt called “old driver.” It contains drivers for Windows, Mac and Linux.
This number has been calling me every few days for the couple weeks. Today, for some reason, I actually answered.
The woman said she was trying to verify that I would be “here” to get served by a sheriff. And that the sherif would only try two times to serve me after which… don’t remember… something about a warrant.
She said that she was merely a legal document processor and knows nothing about my case, but it has been “red flagged” and she only deals with red flagged cases.
She said she could give me a number to call and a case number but that’s the information she has. When I asked her, she said she worked for Fidelity Express.
The number she gave me to call is 1-849-292-8022… Unless I copied it down wrong, that’s a Dominican Republic Area Code.
I asked a lawyer I know about this and he said:
Sounds like a scam. I get repeat calls all the time from Beverly Hills, Pasadena, Detroit, NY, Miami, you name it. I rarely answer them. So in the future never identify yourself to strangers on the phone. Never give a stranger information over the phone. If I do answer and realize it’s not a call I want to take I just say, “Can I take a message?” I won’t even verify if they have the correct number.
If there is any validity to the call avoid being served. So if a “sheriff” or process server comes to your door, don’t answer the door. As far as I know a sheriff can only serve papers from a court w/in that sheriff’s county. So the [some] County sheriff’s office can’t serve papers for a court in [somewhere else] for instance or even [nearby county].
I bet if you call that number they will tell you to send money to X to pay the “fine” or whatever. I would not suggest you make that call number because then you are rated higher as a candidate for scamming another time. If you get served for a case in another country you can ignore it. If you get served for a case in another state let’s talk. You would have to file a demurrer to personal jurisdiction. I think I have a copy of one somewhere.
I decided to call the number I was called from, 310-300-0101 and I got a phone service recording saying “this is not a valid phone number”
