I have brought new Edimax 802.11G Wireless USB Adapter towards my office system, I am using it with Windows XP System, I need to know whether it will work with Linux and MAC. If so, do I need to have separate drivers for that.
Please guide me,
Edimax 802.11G Wireless USB Adapter
If you are using the Edimax EW-7811Un Wireless 802.11b/g/n nano USB Adapter, you don’t have to download a separate driver if you want to use it on Mac OS X and or Linux. This device is multiplatform and it supports Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Mac OS X, and Linux. On the other hand, if you want to use a particular device on other operating system, you need to check it first if it supports your target platform.
Because if it don’t, you cannot use it there and there will be no driver available for that device for the target operating system.
