I currently work on Malmö University and we use a system called It’s Learning for course management and it is often a hassel. So me and a friend Ali decided to make a chrome plugin that improves the It’s Learning website a bit. Please feel free to check it out at https://github.com/dogbrain/Its-Learning-Reformer.
Unfortunately the drivers for this wireless usb card is not included in osx and to make things more frustrating the driver is not provided for osx on the linksys homepage. But do not worry there is a solution!
The chipset in WUSB600N is made by Ralink and is called RT2870 and on the Ralink webpage you can download the driver. Go ahead and download it and install it reboot your computer when it tells you to.
That should have been that but for some reason the WUSB600N the product id for WUSB600N is not included in the kext file. To be able to use our card we need to edit the /System/Library/Extensions/RT2870USBWirelessDriver.kext. Open up the file in your favorite editor. And search for Linksys you should find a section looking like this:
Linksys - RT2870 - 1 CFBundleIdentifier com.Ralink.driver.RT2870USBWirelessDriver IOClass RT2870USBWirelessDriver IOProviderClass IOUSBDevice idProduct 112 idVendor 5943
This is another cards from linksys that are included in the driver that uses the same chipset as our card. So now you have the option of either edit that entry to have the product id 121 (0x0079 in hex) or add your own card after. Since just editing the existing card could break another card I recommend adding the code below just after the instead
Linksys - RT2870 - WUSB600N CFBundleIdentifier com.Ralink.driver.RT2870USBWirelessDriver IOClass RT2870USBWirelessDriver IOProviderClass IOUSBDevice idProduct 121 idVendor 5943
Now you just have to reboot and you can enjoy your WUSB600N card :).
The card is handled through Ralinks wireless utility that can be found in you application folder.
So… I have installed windows 8 and this is my first thoughts about it.
Great search abilities
Uses less resources than windows 7
Focus on touch screens. I think this will get many people
To be able to catch the HTTP DELETE on a route you need to add
<remove name="UrlRoutingModule-4.0" /> <add name="UrlRoutingModule-4.0" type="System.Web.Routing.UrlRoutingModule" preCondition="" /> <!-- any other modules you want to run in MVC e.g. FormsAuthentication, Roles etc. -->
under system.webServer in Web.config
I have an old macbook pro and the DVD drive is broken and since it is an old mac it is not happy about booting from USB drives. Found this great post that helped me install Windows 8.
So that solved the installation… now I am working on getting the hardware to work 🙂
