Installing DWA-160 in Mac OSX Lion
« on: August 20, 2011, 09:47:13 PM »

Hello

I am using an iMac with Lion installed and have followed your instructions to install my newly purchased DWA-160 (A2)

I downloaded the driver from D-Link website and it's version 4.0.0.10, at first it refused to install. Then I discovered this thread:

http://forums.dlink.com/index.php?topic=13684.0

I followed the instructions, the D-Link program installed successfully after editing the package content, but when I type the command in Terminal, it returns the following error:

Warnings:
    Executable does not contain code for architecture:
        x86_64

Can't load /System/Library/Extensions/AtherosOtusMac.kext - no code for running

Can someone please offer some help?? Please...  :-[

If you boot up os x lion in 32 bit mode (hold down the 3 and 2 while it starts up, the drink software should load properly. d-link has to make their software 64 bit compatible

I installed the ralink drivers on 10.7.3 and it works well. You do have to reboot the Mac while holding down 3 and 2 keys on the Mac to get into 32bit mode. After the ralink drivers are installed then just reboot the Mac with out holding the keys down and boot normally into 64 bit mode. Good find.
