|802.11ac WiFi Adapter (USB) with Mac OS X Drivers: (updated)|
[FYI: For later info, see updated page of Mac/OS X Compatible 802.11ac adapters/cards that also includes info on PCIe 802.11ac cards for Mac Pros as well as several USB 802.11ac adapters with Mac OS X drivers.]
(original post/earlier info follows)
A reader sent a FYI on the ($52.99 list) D-Link DWA-180 802.11ac Dual Band USB Adapter (No longer at D-Link site) with mac drivers. (Note the specs show a USB 2.0 device interface - which is 480Mbps max, typically less real-world.) The product page Download tab has Mac drivers for OS X. (Beta as of July 2013 - download contains OS X 10.6, 10.7 and 10.8 drivers.)
If any reader tries one or any other 802.11ac adapter with mac support (w/faster interface like USB3 or PCIe/Mini-PCIe), let me know. (Please include mac model/OS/USB port/Base/Link speeds, etc) - Thanks!
