This Kext http://www.megaupload.com/?d=A99AURUZ is for BCM5784 Snow leopard 10.6, 10.6.2, 10.6.3 tested and working. Dont know if it works for 10.6.4 but presumably will. This kext automatically retrieves MAC address, all you need to do is insert ethernet and it will work.
Install with Kext Utility and reboot.
My device ID is 1698 and after installing your Kext on my 10.6.3, i get kernal panic in boot. Any idea why this one did not work for me?

Currently I'm using Mac OS 10.6.3, but facing some bandwidth speed problem with the latest kext.
In Windows 7, i can surf internet, youtube smoothly, and ping to the ISP is very good around 16 - 40ms without any request time out.
But when i switch to Mac OS, i can hardly surf the internet and youtube is just too slow to load. Ping to localhost will sometimes get request time out (it shud be no request time out when ping to localhost) and when i ping to ISP it will have around 3 to 10 request time out then continue with 2 or 3 times 16 - 40ms ping. but it is way too much of request time out then it is in windows 7.
I've one friend from taiwan encountering the same problem. Others if u wanna test pls ping your localhost, if it get request time out means there is something wrong with it. It should not have any request time out when pinging localhost. =)
So is there any solution to this?
another thing to mention, before i use the new kext it works fine with the old kext which is the kext cannot detect MAC address itself

The bandwidth slow down obviously. Right after the system start, it's nearly 10Mb/s when downloading files from a LAN server using YummyFTP or FileZilla. After several hours, it slows down to 400Kb/s. Nor kextunload IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleBCM5701Ethernet.kext work, neither ifconfig en0 down then up does. Even worse, the bandwidth slows down to 100Kb/s.
Reboot the system bring back the bandwidth. Somebody help me plz!

I have seen that sometimes it doesn't load the kext, for example I put the Power Management kext into the folder extensions and it didn't load it (under system information-extensions I haven't seen it),so is there a way to chek eventual errors of loaded (or not) kext?.
I hope someone could help me.

Another particular: when the system boots without any ethernet kext it goes very quickly, when I install with KextHelper an ethernet kext it mades a pause during the loading (about three minutes to load or more).
I tried to boot with -x32, with -f..nothing.
What can I do now?
I think that the kext is the right one so I start to think that I have a problem with the DSDT.AML.
Thank you very much man.

I tried doing what you Said in update 2. I just put the .kext into ionetworkblah insteaf of the original One. Then i ran th e Disk Utility permission repair Thing. Now what? It doesnt Show up in Network. I cant add an ethernet Connection. Is there anything i can do to get it Running on 10.6.4?
I tried the .kext for 10.6.0 bevor updating to .4 and that One worked great.
Im sorry for my Bad spelling, im Typung this on a German iPad, it really cripples my writing.

I spent a lot of time, lost my hope to get my LAN working, but finally I did it, oh yes!!! My laptop is Acer Aspire 5920G and os is snow leo 10.6.2.
I have read all this topic, I tried all kexts here, all methods (first on Leopard 10.5.2, later on Snow Leopard 10.6.0 and 10.6.2) but nothing worked for me. I never saw en0 in ifconfig. I always saw something like "BCM5701Mggg.kext .. - 0 0 .. memory page.. failed" during boot and in Console as well.
After my last boot I saw another message, don't remember which one, but I can post later if you ask.
What I did is: I installed Chun-Nan's IOPCIFamily.kext v113 with KextHelper_b7 and reboot. And that helped.
But before this I installed UPDATE 2 into IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins or installed another version of IONetworkingFamily - one of those posted up in this thread, I don't remember what I did last. I'll write it if you ask later.
LAN is working now, but no internet
After restart internet works too. Didn't check speed though.
But laptop hung at the first seconds of boot, I had to remove battery to get it working.
