This is just a combination of the two links I mentioned. If you are someone who has the same problem as me, I highly recommend reading both of the links, especially if the commands I gave don't work. This is just a summary of the full solution.
Unfortunately, this solution requires internet connection. I had to go buy ethernet and adaptors to use it. One hiccup in that process is that the ethernet was very particular.
The first two places I plugged it in did not give me internet. This is likely due to a completely unrelated issue, but if it happens to you, just keep trying different sockets in different rooms or buildings. Good luck! Installing Broadcom Wireless Drivers.

It did not fully solve my problem but after following the steps there and combining them with steps from another solution, my problem was solved. I have added the solution to the post in case anyone stumbles upon this in the future. Great that you were able to solve it.

You could have answered your own question. It did okay on the PC but we no longer need to use it there to boost the wifi signal. I tried installing it on the Macbook and found out it wouldn't work at all.
I mean, what's the deal? Is it no logical to have drivers available for both platforms? If anyone has a solution please let me know.
Go to Solution. Would this link work for mentioned adapter?
It did okay on the PC but we no longer need to use it there to boost the wifi signal. I tried installing it on the Macbook and found out it wouldn't. For help installing your wireless-N USB adapter, see the installation guide that came in the package . The Media Access Control (MAC) address of this adapter .
I have been experiencing similar problems concerning OS software that it didn't link up together or Macbook doesn't even recognize the adapter. Please and thank you! It is indicated in the system requirements for the adapter. Can you reccomend one from Netgear that could work on both platforms?
