My Work Thread:
Source switcher for Lill
I had purchase this wireless adapter. I installed the driver and use windows to manage the wireless. The range I am getting is normal. Is there some settings that I missed out? or the item is faulty because the signal strength I am getting seams like a normal USB adapter.
Can anyone confirm if the Engenius models are usable with Mac / OS X?
I am considering buying one because the internal WiFi capabilities of the Intel Mac Minis is truly crap.
I'm very happy for you but I do
Actually seriously I have a G4 Mac Mini and the wifi is awesome - picks up loads of networks. But when I try my Intel Mac Mini in the exact same installation the reception is terrible. Sometimes it fails to find even a single network.
I believe that the Intel Mac Minis have a different Airport circuit from the G4s and it is fairly well documented that reception is pretty crap for some units. When you see them side by side you can really tell the difference. Thats why I want to investigate the Engenius units.
I have purchase this wireless adapter. It looks different from what I have seen on the internet (review). I have ask EnGenius Technologies Inc (http://www.engeniustech.com/) but they say "This device did not come from our office so it would not be supported by us. This includes the warranty." I am confused as they have the same brand name and the specs seems the same. Will it have different performance? Anyone came accross something like this?
