Is there any one know the Driver for Lion and SL for Airlink wireless AWLL6070 USB adapter.  Airlink web site does not show any Mac driver support.  I use this adapter in window and it works fine. I want to use it on Mac too.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7)

    AirLink has drivers for the Mac, although they may not have one compatible with Lion. I have downloaded drivers from them several times.

    Don't be too surprised if the driver does not work. Lion is booting into the 64-bit kernel, and chances are good that their current driver is 32-bit and will not work unless you force the computer to boot into the 32-bit kernel or force applications that will use the driver to start in 32-bit mode.

     

    Maybe send them an email about it to encourage them to upgrade the driver.

    Good for you, kiddo! I'm actually surprised Ralink's driver worked. They produce the drivers for Airlink, I think, but maybe not.

     

    Anyway, you'll be in heaven if it also works in 64-bit.
