There is a problem with the code that is wrapped around obtaining the MAC address, some information should be defined statically and it isn't and this also contributes to the messed up variable pointers and extending a variable beyond it's initial size without reallocation is nothing shy of sloppy programming.

Also of importance is the IRQ management, why is the driver managing the IRQ and not the Kernel/OS as it should be?

There are several versions of this driver floating around and each has it's own little quirks, a public current source where people can contribute patches would help make a better driver as issues are found and corrected but this also requires time of the author (or an assignee) to manage the project in an environment where users don't clutter the threads with mundane {censored} like "it don't work for me, please help!!!".

I've found that using the marvell yukon (skge) driver is more stable than the nvidia/nforce4 lan driver

Hi,

I've been using forcekext drivers ever since and it is working fine with my MSI K9N Neo-F motherboard. However, there is a problem with this driver and I'm pretty much sure everyone experience this problem. I'm in a dual boot system - Windows XP and Leopard (Leo4allv3). If I'm planning to boot to my MacOSX, I have to unplug the power cord and wait for 30 secs and plug it back then boot to OSX in order for the nforce Ethernet to work. (This scenario will happen when I'm in windows then soft restarted - then booted to OSX -- it also happens when from Windows then turn off [shutdown]).

I was just wondering if this problem is still experienced today? Is there a work around or probably an alternative driver that we can use?

Thanks in advanced!

I selected it, installed everything properly, n everything works fine, but for the ethernet. I have some screenshots here. Can anybody tell me wat i need to do or wat might be wrong with my system? I tried getting forcedeth -v variant but i cant find it anywhere online. I have it on leo4all disc, but i dont know how to extract it of the disc. Please help.

Im sorry but I dont know the right terms for them, so Im just gonna call the logs Tail and Bash, im sure u know the difference :(

I'm also getting the freezing after the kextload issue. I'm using 10.5.4 and my dev ID is 0269. Anyone found a fix for this issue yet?

Edit: chuttenh's kext works okay for me and I don't get a kernel panic, per se, but the network link does go down after alot of bandwidth traffic goes through.

EDIT:

The driver attached should now be fairly stable, but as with all OS X drivers, there is no guarantee of support. Complete system freezes have been known to occur with older versions and may reoccur, so avoid doing critical work on OS X. Source code is included for the sake of future generations. Here are my recommended instructions for getting it working on your computer:

1. Download the attached driver
2. Extract the contents onto the desktop
3. Open the Terminal application in the Applications/Utilities folder
4. Type "tail -f /var/log/system.log" to obtain debugging output for the first run.
5. Use the menu bar to open up a new Terminal window.
6. In this new window, type "cd ~/Desktop/forcedeth/build/Release"
7. sudo chown -R root:wheel forcedeth.kext
8. sudo chmod -R 755 forcedeth.kext
9. sudo kextload -v forcedeth.kext
10. Observe in the log window what happens. If there are no errors, and you eventually see the link going up with a proper speed, then the driver will work with your hardware. Otherwise, paste the log in this thread for help.
11. Test out the driver by browsing some websites, etc.
12. If there were any problems in steps 10 or 11, type "sudo kextunload forcedeth.kext", then repeat steps 7-11 for forcedeth-nockd.kext
13. To install the driver, type "sudo cp -R forcedeth.kext /System/Library/Extensions"
14. Lastly, update the extensions cache with "sudo kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions"

I tried the above method but it didnt work for me....i am ataching the file....

I wuld appreciate if anyon culd get my ethernet working.... i have leo4all v3 installed on my AMD machine.

P.S: this could be of some help - (NVIDIA nForce Networking Controller) - 10de:0244 nVidia Corporation MCP51 Ethernet Controller
This was the output when I ran DPCIManager

thnx and waiting............

ok, I was using forcedeth-d on my zeph 10.5.2 very nice.
I installed yesterday the 10.5.4 modbin 9.4.0 kernel (ideneb). The lan works but worse then never. I just can not navigate. TOO SLOW. Almost dead.

I tried to install the forcedeth-d again, keeps bad.
Then, I tried to install ALL the versions at the first post of this topic, and nothing changed.
Please I need some help. I dont know more what to do.

EDIT: HOLD YOUR HORSES! It seems to be working good now. But I did so many tries that I dont remember the last driver I used, there is a way to know which one is in use know? I will make some tests. Any problem I will post here!

As soon as I try to load the kext, OSX freezes... Too bad...
Got an older driver version working though, but then OSX is very unstable :(

So now we start the waiting process... :P

EDIT:
chuttenh's kext works for me too, but unfortunately OSX is rather unstable right now...
When I make "intesive" use of my network card OSX freezes :D
Boooo...

Hey guys. Anybody got a kext for the nforce 6? Dont know if there is a kext for the new ones at all.

I think I'm going to check out my old PCs and stick the old network card into my pc. Do you think it will work?

new to this osx86 thing but have everything working except for ethernet using the lawlessppc 10.5.4. my motherboard is a ECS MCP61PM-HM. The only kext that has recognized my ethernet is the forcedeth 03 version but when i get it installed it shows the adapter has been recognized then freezes. unable to get a log due to it freezing right away. any suggestions?

an update. i tried installing the same forcedeth in safemode and then rebooted. It now recognizes my ethernet card however it shows inactive and cable unplugged. my router is assigning an ip address but the Nic is not sending hence still no internet. tried several things but the ethernet card seems like it is just going to stay crippled. If you need comp specs i'm running a HP m8300f. I also bought a netgear ga311 ethernet card and can't get that to work either. So far its a no win situation as far as internet goes.

I just tried that and still got nothing. I'm wondering how with the forcedeth 03 it recognizes the adapter and recieves packets but it shows inactive and is not able to send packets. This happens when I install in safe mode. If I try to install in regular mode it automatically recognizes the adapter then freezes. The router sees it. I've been on this for about 4 days with very little sleep. Everything else works so I don't want to give up but this is driving me insane.
