I have a Hackingtosh macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 and I want to use a 802.11n WiFi USB stick and I tried some drivers found on the internet but nothing helps.

As we known, Mi Wifi currently does not support Mac OS X. Since it uses MT7601 chip of mediatek, we can use MT7601 driver for Mac.

This repo provides a way to solve this problem.


  • Wifi sharing through Mi Wifi
  • Use Mi Wifi as Wireless component


  1. Install RTUSB_D2870- which needs restart
  2. Replace SystemLibraryExtensionsRT2870USBWirelessDriver.kextContentsInfo.plist with Info.plist of this repo and restart again

The local repo's Info.plist changes the pid to 16646 and vid to 10007 which is the Mi Wifi's pid and vid. Igoogle translate 2.0 download for mac.

  1. In case control panel of RTUSB_D2870- does not work, install DWA-125_A2_for_MAC_v2.3.8.0
  2. Use Kext_Wizard to rebuild the system cache and restart the computer
  3. Done!


Before the installation, please go to Download Center to download the driver on the MAC, and plug the adapter into the computer.

Let’s take Archer T4U for example.

Then please follow the steps below:

1.Please double click on the driver and extract it, then open the folder and run the pkg install file;

2.A warning message will pop up as the below. To solve this problem, please go to “System Preferences”, and “Security & Privacy”, then click “Open Anyway” to identify the driver.

Wifi Driver For Mac Os Sierra

Note: if “Allow apps downloaded from” is “Anywhere”, the warning message won’t pop up.

Date format not changing in excel 2007. 3.After the driver is being identified, it will be installed automatically. During the process, an authentication windows will pop up to ask for username and password, which is the administration account of your MAC (if you have no idea what it is or how to find it, please contact the Apple support for help.). Then please click “Install Software” to continue the process.

4.Now please click “Continue Installation” and “Restart” to finish the installation process.

5.After MAC is rebooted, please click the Wi-Fi icon to “Open Wireless Utility”, then you can choose your Wi-Fi and connect it. (Note: it may take time for utility to search Wi-Fi, please wait patiently for about 1 min.)

Now please enjoy your Wi-Fi.
