Technically you can, but in general I would not recommend it.
You need to run your Mac in 32 bit mode for the drivers to work (you can google
"boot mac 32bit" and you should get some instructions from Apple), which means starting your Mac a special way anytime you want to use the 036H adapter, which is not really a great solution. You need to boot into 32 bit mode to install the drivers, as well as use them.
I would look for something wireless so you don't have to worry about installing drivers or running cables
to your computer. That way your computer simply connects to a local WiFi
network that then connects to a remote
Apple changes things a lot, and in turn, a lot of driver manufacturers (like Realtek), give up support after a period of time as it's too much work. That being said, the drivers will work if you are determined enough to use them.
