I have a Macbook Pro running Yosemite (10.10.1) and an Asus wifi dongle.

I would like to connect to two wifi networks. One is a normal home/office/hotel/conference network with a connection to the outside internet, the other is a local internet with two other machines on it (a windows tablet and a PLC controller).

How do I do this?

(I can't even tell if the wifi dongle is being recognized, but it's supposed to support Mac. When I use it with the windows tablet, I get a "Wifi" and a "Wifi 2" option, and I just set each to different networks)

  • did you try using the syst pref- Networks? does it show there?

  • WiFi / Bluetooth PAN / Thunderbolt Bridge without the dongle... I plug in the dongle, nothing new shows up.

If you have the USB-AC51 I am afraid it does not work with Yosemite.

In the specs it only shows support up to 10.8 and not for 10.10

It turns out that someone is claiming that the "Bearextender driver software" works for that, but I can not confirm since I do not have your hardware to test.
