D-Link DWA-125 OSX Lion
this post contains the steps for running the D-Link DWA-125 wireless adapter on OSX Lion (10.7.5). So here we go:
First: Download driver and software
I downloaded the official driver from dlink homepage http://www.dlinkla.com/node/1798 (chosed the newer 1.8.2011 version)
After that, I looked for the „Ralink Airport Installer“ ( for getting the nice Airport status symbol in finder bar).
Second: Installing the driver and software
I made sure, that the adapter wasn’t plugged in at the time while installing the driver.
It is recommend, first install the „Ralink Airport Utility“ , before adding the driver.
So I installed the package and did a reboot.
Now I installed the „D-Link DWA125.pkg“ from 10.6 folder located in the official .dmg
I created a connection in system preferences – Ralink Airport, and it works like a charm.
Third: connect on startupD-Link DWA-125 OSX Lion
I figured out, that I had to manually activate the conection each time I started up.
Now there were 2 things I’d done:
- At „Users & Groups“ in System Preferences I added the „Ralink Airport“ from applications folder to startup applications.
Here I got a status bar „icon“ shows [disconnected] until I click on its preferences, then it connects itself to first „Profile Drawer“ profile,
- I wrote an AppleScript for calling the system preferences and close it immediately after entering the Ralink Airport section (you can download it on the end of the post) you have to set system preferences start up in 32-bit mode (/Applications/System Preferences -> right click -> „Start in 32-Bit Mode“)
now the adapter automatically connects on each start up, with a short opening of the system preferences.
