UPDATE: Rosewill N900PCE added to our list of Hackintosh compatible wifi adapters

We recently updated our list of Hackintosh-compatible WiFi adapters to include the Rosewill N900PCE. Thanks to the fact that it uses the same Atheros AR9380 wireless chipset as the extremely well-known TP-LINK TL-WDN4800, the Rosewill N900PCE works "out of box" with both Lion and Mountain Lion. This addition increases the count of our list of WiFi adapters to five. If you have any more suggestions for WiFi adapters that work out of the box in Hackintoshes, please email us at, or leave a comment on any relevant article on our website.

Rosewill N900PCE ($25-35)
The Rosewill N900PCE is the newest addition to this list-- a relative unknown until a few months ago, it has recently gained attention due to the fact that it uses the same wireless chipset as the more well-known TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 (above). As a result, both Mountain Lion and Lion automatically detect the N900PCE as an Airport card (though Snow Leopard does not work).

The best part about the N900PCE? It consistently underprices the TL-WDN4800 by $5-10. For that price, you get a great WiFi adapter that supports all of the frills: 802.11n, WPA2 security, three frequency bands, and so forth. While the N900PCE is not nearly as well-documented in the Hackintosh community as its better-known cousin, if you're willing to wander a bit off the beaten path, then it's an excellent (and remarkably cheap) choice for your Hackintosh.
