The main chip on the card is in fact a RealTek chip even though there is probably not a single RealTek marking on it. D-LINK doesn't support drivers for MACS but I downloaded the REALTEK 8139x chip driver and I have installed D-LINK DFE-530TX+ cards in 8 Macs and two of my PC's with excellent results
