USB Edimax 7822UAC 802.11ac Adapter Driver for OS X 10.10:
David sent a follow-up to his previous report on 2 USB Edimax 802.11ac adapters with a note that Edimax posted (beta) drivers for OS X Yosemite for the dual-band 7822UAC.
"Have downloaded and installed (for 7822UAC) with a significant difference in performance on my 2012 Macbook Air. No obvious bugs....

The Edimax Driver page (4th listing down) - now has OS X 10.10 driver (v1035_UI_2.3.0) linked for their EW-7822UAC, EW-7811UTC, EW-7811UAC, EW-7811DAC and EW-7811USC models.
