View Full Version : Apple Mac Drivers

Apple have released the drivers for the Apple Mac OSX on their web site. I downloaded the package (tfmodempkg.zip) unzipped and stored on the desktop as the instructions said. When executing the package installer from the desktop you get an error message "Install Failed" due to some script error. I even went as far as drawing the installer files out of the package which installed but the device is still not seen by the OS.
Has anyone else had a similar problem?
I have an iMac 17"; 2GHz Duo; 1G memory; OS X v10.5.4;

"Apple have released the drivers for the Apple Mac OSX on their web site."
You need drivers to run an os? Interesting...

Ok, maybe I was a bit discrete in my original post.
Neotel introduced their NeoConnect Prime service to the consumers in May2008. When purchasing the package (i.e. a box containing the device, charger, software and a few pages with instructions). There was no software for Macs on the CD. Only for WinXP. Their call centre agent advised that they are in the process of testing the mac software and it will be available by mid/end July. Well they did deliver in time, but, .... back to the original post as status-quo ....
Hopefully this sheds a bit more light on the "drivers". It is the drivers required for the NeoConnect device so that I can use my Mac on the net instead of Windows.
More questions are welcome. I really would like to get over this hurdle as Neotel have not provided any answers to date.

To all concerned,
Neotel have released the updated drivers to control the NeoConnect device onto their website. Currently it is only for users who are using Mac OS X 10.5.x. I am using the software and drivers at this current moment.
I was advised that they should be releasing a version for the older OS's soon.
Should I hear of this then I'll make another posting.
Many thanks Neotel. Another happy customer. May there be many more happy customers.

I guessing the method used to get the modem working on linux would also work on mac.
