Hi Gang, I'm having a problem installing this on a 10.5.6 distro (XxX_10.5.6_Leo_Install_Disc_PPF1).

I placed the kext in the sys/lib/ext folder , delete the extensions.mkext and cache folder, ran disk util to repair the disk permissions, reboot and I get this error:

===
System extension cannot be used

The system extension "/System/Library/Extensions/Intel82566MM.kext" was installed improperly and cannot be used. Please try reinstalling it, or contact the products vendor for an update


=====

What did I do wrong?

I'm on a dell 9200c / xps 210
I own a real copy of OSX, BTW.

Scratch That, I'm an idiot.

Got it working using OSX86Tools. I didn't have to change the PLIST. It is installed and is working correcty!

Next, the sound.

This worked (well, I'm unsure, but the device was definitely recognized) for me before, but after a fresh install, I can't get it to work now.
The only thing I can think which is different is that I'm on 10.5.5 as opposed to 10.5.2. (Upgraded from same 10.5.2 install to 10.5.3, then 10.5.4, then 10.5.5.)
I changed the com.apple.kpi.[x] values to match my kernel, and the two above those. They're all what (the guide from page 2 says) they should be.
Anyone got any ideas?

EDIT: Or if someone would upload their 10.5.5 (working) kext, I'd appreciate it.

Hi folks,

i'm having dificulties getting my onboard 82562V-2 ethernet controller running at something else than 10Mbit. I tried to configure the network interface manually using the media parameter of ifconfig, but that didnt help either and even though osx reports that it is running at 100Mbit, the router and the transfer speeds say the connection is running at just 10Mbit.

en0: flags=8863<UP,BROADCAST,SMART,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
		inet6 fe80::21d:92ff:fe71:44ae%en0 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x4
		inet 192.168.2.109 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.2.255
		ether 00:1d:92:71:44:ae
		media: 100baseTX <full-duplex> status: active
		supported media: autoselect 10baseT/UTP <half-duplex> 10baseT/UTP <full-duplex> 100baseTX <half-duplex> 100baseTX <full-duplex> 1000baseT <full-duplex>

The motherboard sports an ICH9 chipset and the following is the the output of "lspci -v" regarding the ethernet controller.

00:19.0 Ethernet controller: Intel Corporation 82562V-2 10/100 Network Connection (rev 02)
		Subsystem: Micro-Star International Co., Ltd. Unknown device 502c

		Capabilities: [d0] Message Signalled Interrupts: Mask- 64bit+ Queue=0/0 Enable-

Please help me with this if you can. If you need any more information, please tell me. I'll try to do my best to provide you with all the details you need.

Works in OSX 10.5.6, but only when I boot with -f, otherwise it appears as disconnected. Thank You very Much!

Just noticed that Guijin Ding - the author of this driver - has posted the source code to goole. -> http://code.google.c...6mm-osx-driver/

Ok, scratch my last couple of posts, it's working now.
No idea why, but it is.
Few restarts, few redownloads (of the same file, though) and it works. No hanging at white Apple screen at boot either.
Awesome. Thanks very much, Guijin.

Also experiencing the problems with speed, I think.

Average speed I'm seeing is around 3.8~4.3MB/s.
(I'm copying music from my HFS+ partitioned 7200rpm Media HD over an ethernet cable to a WAG160N Linksys router, through that to a MyBook World Edition.)

Oh, now I feel a bit better. : P
And I should point out now that I tried copying two large files to two different locations (Windows XP machine & previously mentioned MyBook) and got a peak speed of about 11MB/s, averaging about 9MB/s, I think.
So I don't quite know why it's only wanting to write ~4MB/s to each device.

I'm running a Dell E520, so I think I'm on an 82562V.

Hey guys, I've been trying to get this to work all night now without success (iDeneb 10.5.6). When using kextload I get an error saying that sha1_* is an undefined symbol which is then followed by a link/load error. It's 5:30AM and I'm too tired to boot it back up to get the exact error, but I assure you it's very close. :rolleyes:

If anyone could help me out, it would GREATLY be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

All is well now, my hardware works 100%, yaaaaaaaay. :(

my 82567LM works now, on 10.5.5 ideneb. big thanks.



works on intel DX58S0 also, using XxX 10.5.6
installed using osx86tools (two clicks, in the GUI, otherwise move to /System/Library/Extensions, do a chmod root:wheel on the files an rebuild the kextcache -k /System/Libraryr/Extensions)

sweet. Now only ALC889 remaining after much tweaking (Core i7 920 - booting after busratio=20 cpus=1). Already gets an impressive 7940 geekbenchs and feels REALLY fast. If you want to know details, please write. maybe I'll open a thread, since I haven't really found much on the topic of successful DX58S0 (DX58SO) Installations here or on hackint0sh

Do I need to do anything special to make this work? The XxX distro I'm using includes this driver. Is it enough that I checkbox the driver under "Customize" when I install OS X, or do I need to do anything else post-installation to activate the driver?

Finding this thread has made my day... I've been struggling with ethernet and sound for my DX48BT2 board for months with no luck, almost given up since final cut/shake would crash without ethernet....

however I'm not in the clear just yet... before I installed this kext, the ethernet was greyed out and said no device. Now it seems to recognize it, but it tells me the cable is unplugged when I know the connection is good because my system is a dual boot with vista x64 and vista gets online just fine

Do I need to do anything special? Could it be a conflict with another kext?

My System:
Q9550
DX48BT2
GeForce 8800GT 1GB DDR3
8GB 1333 DDR3
500GB SATA II (and 4x320GB RAID0 for Vista but those are not recognized)
iatkos 5.0

also I tried the 9274D kext for my onboard sound, which now appears as if it works but I don't actually hear any sound from my speakers?

kexts installed using Kext Helper

Anyone out there gotten ethernet & Sound working for an intel DX48BT2 board I would really appreicate your help - thanks!

**UPDATE** Working on the DC7700 Intel 82556DM, my bad for not following the instructions closely.
I am only getting speeds of 10mb, not 100 or 1000 even when I force the speed its only 10

Tried it on my HP DC7700 with a 82556DM, no workie..


So does this work on intel 82566dm or not? and if it does, how do i install it?

After around one month part-time work. I ported the Linux e1000e driver to my Laptop (Lenovo T61p) running Hackintocsh Mac OS X (Leopard 10.5.3).

Detail in my blog http://techresearchinfo.blogspot.com.

Guijin Ding


I have been fighting to get LAN to work for a very long time, i have followed dingguijin walkthrough and I have no response from the NIC every time.

I download the .tar.gz file that was upload 11-2008
i then edit the contents/info.plst file to match the versions located with kextstat
I save and quit
I use kext helper to upload the new 82566mm driver, it says successful cross fingers and reboot.
I reboot, no internet...

If i go to about this mac>system profiler>network> at the bottom of the list ethernet is listed there, and it gives a mac address, full duplex, and auto select.

What am I missing, do i need to insert a device ID somewhere? This is a totally vanilla, retail copy. I have not set up macloader yet but once i get internet working i will set up macloader. By the way I am using the intel dp35dp mobo....I appreciate any direction you can give. Thanks a lot.
