Reminder on OS X Drivers for Belkin F9L1109 USB 802.11ac Adapter
Had another reader say he found a clearance priced (red tagged at $15) USB 802.11AC Belkin F9L1109 Ver.1000 at his local Wallyworld. (As always, Big YMMV (very rare). Our Local store only had very old B/G adapters on clearance and no 802.11ac adapters at all. And each WM store can have different pricing (on anything) in my experience. I wonder if these rare finds are returns.)
   He didn't note his mac/OS X version used but an earlier report on that adapter here mentioned using the OS X 10.8-10.9 driver for Amped's ACA1 adapter with OS X 10.10/Yosemite. (Apparently same chipset, although that can also change over time.)
