Hello, Thanks for pointing this out. We are sorry for any inconvenience this caused. With OS X, the USB56KEMH does not require any drivers for installation. It is a plug and play device. To confirm if it is detected and working correctly on a Mac you can check the system profiler by doing the following: - Click "About This Mac" - Click "More Info" - Select Hardware > USB > USB 3.0 Hi-Speed Bus > USB Modem The device will be identified by the name "Conexant". You can then move into the Network settings and add the modem by clicking the "+" in the lower left corner. When prompted to select the interface click USB Modem. From that point you can configure it as needed. If you need any further assistance, get in touch with our tech team. Thank You
