Pros:Not sure yet. Update: happier

Cons:Drivers don't seem to work for intel Macs. Update: new one does.

Just got this and the drivers don't seem to work. Trying to find out if the tech support can confirm that this works with intel Macs or not. Disappointing if so as I saw nothing on the web site saying anything about this....

UPDATE: Hawking Tech Support emailed back with suggestion to try the drivers at

http://www.atheros.com/RD/ZyDAS/web_driver/ZD1211B/Macintosh/ZDA211MacUSB_install_4_5_7_0.dmg

This driver works with a MacBook (1st gen) and seems to allow you to pick the Hawking adapter, try it, then switch to Airport fine. I am still trying to see if the actual reception is better than the Airport (which I bought it for), but at least these drivers work. Good for Hawking Tech Support to suggest them; might be better if there were mentioned on the web site for the driver. Still, I'm much happier.
