Works perfectly on an HP A6152n desktop. all I had to do was dl the kext file to a usb stick, drop it to the osx desktop, and use the kext helper b7 tool to install it. Thanks!

Works mainly on 566dm-2, but have only one big problem - network in VMWare 2.0.1 don't work.

(Used bridge networking and only host and vm can see each other, no more network)

On RTL8139 card vmware works.

To dingguijin Can you compile this kext for Tiger 10.4.11 ? Many people need this, not only for me.

@dingguijin
And it could be much better if you share the sources of driver. Maybe thus someone can complete this work and add some absent features like powermanagement etc

can any one confirm they are getting 1000 with this driver, don't look at the software: to confirm it look at your router, I can manualy set the speed to 1000 but the router says 10.


I also have this problem ... although i configured the network interface to use 100Mbit full duplex and OS X actually reports the interface as 100Mbit full duplex, i'll just get a 10Mbit connection anyway. ;)

All works on my

Dell XPS 420
4 Gb DDR 2
Intel Chipset X38
Intel LAN 82566-DC2 (onboard)

Kayway 10.5.2.

To install I downloaded Kext Helper b7, extract on Mac Desktop and copied in it the folder in the tar.gz.
Of course I verified the drivers id a ricardo and others said.

Hi,
Here is the 82566 kext that you requested.

EDIT: The download link at the first post is OK. I have tested it on Friday, 6:06 PM, January 16, 2009. ;)

Anyone get this to work in BRIDGED mode in VMware? I only have one PCI and one PCIex slot on the Dell 755, and the PCI slot cover is taken by the 9500gt's 2nd port (VGA). I think I will order a USB ethernet adapter, but it would be nice if the 82566 series worked properly in VMware. Thanks Guijin Ding!

Hi,

I am having the problem whereby i cn only get this driver to work in safe mode.

What could possibly be killing it in non safe mode?

I, too, would like to see this work in bridged mode. My work Laptop is a Lenovo R61 7737-A42, and I can get VMWare to work in NAT mode, but I'd rather it be able to connect to my work network natively through bridging.

It works acceptably as NAT, but I want to be able to direct some incoming traffic to my VM, and well, NAT just complicates things.

I've already had to resort to using a PCCARD Wifi Nic since the iwi3945 drivers are incomplete. I'd like to have at least ONE of my NICs fully functional!

Thanks for all your work on this project, else I would have nothing at all, let alone the bridging issue.

Has *anyone* had success in bridged mode?

intel 82567lm sleeping working?

big thanks! I have got Intel82566MM worked on 10.5.2!
you just need to modify the Info.plist as follows:

On my OSX (10.5.2) the version string should be:
<key>OSBundleLibraries</key>
<dict>
<key>com.apple.iokit.IONetworkingFamily</key>
<string>1.6.0</string>
<key>com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily</key>
<string>2.4.1</string>
<key>com.apple.kpi.bsd</key>
<string>9.2.2</string>
<key>com.apple.kpi.iokit</key>
<string>9.2.2</string>
<key>com.apple.kpi.libkern</key>
<string>9.2.2</string>
<key>com.apple.kpi.mach</key>
<string>9.2.2</string>
</dict>

Because I haven't really looked at the code I can only offer the following advice to improve OS compatibility.

Change all:
<string>9.x.x</string>
to:
<string>7.9.9</string>
compile using the 10.4 SDK and the driver should work for any version of 10.4.x and 10.5.x.

The source code was available only in the firsts Guijin Ding releases. The license terms are GNU based so can be freely distributed with no modification.

Since Guijin Ding seems to have decided to stop any further development I'm upping up the code so anyone, particularly the ones with knowledge on drivers programming, may take a look to fill the missing pieces.

Cheers.
