I recently bought a Samsung Syncmaster C24A650X, a 24-inch display that features UWB wireless connection for everything. They gave me a wireless dongle for the display, and an USB adapter for the computer.

Currently I have one VGA cable and an USB cable between the computer and the display (the display also does USB hub, so my mouse/keyboard/devices are connected permanently to the display).

I wish I could use the wireless adapter to get rid of both cables. I tried to plug the USB dongle on my MacBook, but nothing happened and the screen had no signal.

I can't seem to find any information or driver on the Internet, because everything I get is "Samsung unveils its * screen featuring UWB" without any driver, explanation or how-to guide.

2 things to try

Method 1

  1. Attach power adapter
  2. Attach display USB dongle
  3. Close MacBook lid and see if it switch to USB display mode

Method 2

NO GARNETTE I do not have a MacBook Pro here to test this out. I found it by Google.

DisplayLink Driver For Mac USB Display

It also stated it limitation on its download page. Following is the quote

Please note: This driver does not support 3D acceleration. Some features of Mac OS X-based applications that require hardware OpenGL acceleration, such as Keynote presentations and iPhoto* slideshows, will not function properly.

Additional Info

Smart Station Setup (Software) (ver.1.6) Mac OS 10.7

Look into Manuals & Downloads, under Software (Not Driver).

I've tried both, neither works. – Benoit Duffez Dec 28 '12 at 16:42
    
@Bicou there is a setup software for OS X, did you try that? Link in answer. – John Siu Dec 28 '12 at 17:02
    
I'll try that as soon as I get back home. After the bounty expiration though... I'll set another one to reward you if this works! – Benoit Duffez Dec 28 '12 at 23:29
    
Don't worry too much about bounty. I like bounty hunting because usually people are serious when posting bounty and will give feed back in the process :) Enjoy your holiday and Happy New Year!! – John Siu Dec 28 '12 at 23:49
