I have a spare TP-Link TL-WN821N wireless USB adapter and I'd love to use it on my Snow Leopard.

Any chances to do it with some hacking since official drivers are Windows-only?

Use software on your Mac OSX called 'Desktop Parallels' with windows XP or Windows 7 so you can start that program, install your USB WLAN as you would on those operating systems and use the net.

Not great but it works!

So your answer about how to use TL-WN821N in OS X is to use it in Windows instead?! – Jonas Elfström Apr 14 '12 at 12:24
