Inventory of supported/unsupported wireless cards #1, Snow Leopard -> El Capitan

Recommended Posts

I recently replaced TL-WN725N V2 with TL-WN725N V3. It also works fine, so please add v3 to supported list. Recent v3 drivers TL-WN725N(EU)_V3_180807_Mac also works fine for V2 version of device.

 

btw. There is an issue  with WPA2 Enterprise on HS, so new drivers that are marked with 10.13 should be used (for both v2 and v3).

Both have same specs: 150Mbps, 2.4GHz only. They look same (except v3 mark), ID is same for both 0bda:8179. V3 drivers work for V2.

 

If you check WikiDevi more closely, you will see this line:

Information output from v3 version : 

I am confused now.

Thanks, I've added the TL-WN823N models to the list. All devices are USB2.0 (your screenshot is a little misleading in that respect, probably due to lack of USB2/USB3 multiplexing).

Your own device actually appears to be a v1 model (id 0bda:8178), not v2 (id 2357:0109). The version n° is available on the FCC id imprinted on the USB plug:

'could not find any details about the v3 model but there are 10.14 drivers available on TP-Link's web site...

Those are latest stable (non beta) drivers for (probably all) TP-Link USB devices. You will find two archives inside Mac OS X10.13.zip and Mac OS X10.8_10.12.zip. Mac OS X10.13.zip actually works just fine on Mojave too.

 

I have no idea why they have so many different versions of driver packages on their site. When you start digging, you will find that you have same drivers on download page for several models. For some crazy reason only packages on latest hw versions of some device are updated.

 

Those are supported TP Link devices:
