Yes, when I used the Nvidia onboard adapter, but that was on Windows (some monts befor first OSx86), when I switch to the Marvell (also onboard) all was fixed.

So when 10.4.1 came out I have several 8139 generic cards (all with no brand) and one SMC 1211tx (8139 compatible) and one SMC 1255 (that does not work on Mac OS), then I bougth a Gicabit Realtek (8169) and use it, I don't remember when I switched but when the First Mac Intel was released the Marvell Yukon was recognized, so I never tried the Forcedeth kext.

Spent a bit of extra money, but bought the Macbook Air usb > ethernet adapter. Guy in Apple Store SWORE it would not work, man was he wrong.

I plugged it in and it recognized it instantly.

If your mouse is an USB this is kind of undertandable because they share the USB bus bandwidth.

Try to put the USB mouse in another port (different "intenal" hub).

I have Kalaway 10.5.2 Install on A Gigabyte DS3l Motherboard and onboard Lan works spotty so I purchased the Apple usb ethernet adapter, but it will not recognize the adapter. I checked my IOfamily kext to make sure the UsbGigabit kext was there. It was but still can't get the network to see the adapter. It is in the usb info under High speed bus, but that's it. Any Ideas? Sorry have not updated my sig.

The build-in 8139 ethernet in my Acer laptop works perfectly... but its only 100mbit...

I need a gigabit ethernet connection, to be able to use my laptop as a node for Logic Studio.

Isnt it impossible to get a proper gigabit connection through a USB2 ethernet dongle?

Yes it is possible, but USB 2.0 max speed is 480Mbit/s so there is some banndwidth wasted. and if you have other devices in the USB bus you could have even less bandwidth.

Exactly... thats what I thought, the USB limits the bandwidth.
In that case I can as well just link the machines together through firewire, I guess..?
