Download RealtekRTL8100-Binary 2.0.0
Driver for Realtek's RTL810X Fast Ethernet family of NICs which supports these chips:
- Version 2.0.0 requires Sierra (may work on El Capitan too but this is untested). Previous versions of OS X are supported by version 1.0.0.
- 64 bit architecture only.
- Support for multisegment packets relieving the network stack of unnecessary copy operations when assembling packets for transmission.
- No-copy receive and transmit. Only small packets are copied on reception because creating a copy is more efficient than allocating a new buffer.
- TCP, UDP and IPv4 checksum offload (receive and transmit).
- TCP segmentation offload under IPv4.
- Support for TCP/IPv6 and UDP/IPv6 checksum offload.
- Supports Wake on LAN.
- Support for Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) which can be disabled by setting enableEEE to NO in the drivers Info.plist without rebuild. The default is YES.
- The driver is published under GPLv2.

- Uses Apple's private driver interface introduced with 10.8.
- Supports packet scheduling with QFQ.
- Adds support for the RTL8107E.
- Adds support for flow control and EEE.
