===================================================================
Reader02 made the driver!!!
So thanks him for this great job! ;)

You can find last fully working AttansicL1eEthernet.kext driver version on 10.6 SNOW LEOPARD, there => http://code.google.com/p/iats/downloads/list

===================================================================
Howto install?
Install the driver with kexthelper Kexthelper Download (click)


===================================================================
Sleep issue... SOLVED
Reader02 solved the issue with latest driver version you can find in this post link!

===================================================================
How can you understand if you have ATL1E onboard?
- open osx86tools
- click on "View PCI device/vendor ID"
- if you see in the list 1969:1026 you have ATL1E


===================================================================
I remove the attached linux driver on this post, that's not needed anymore! :P

Please note:
- AR8114 it's related with the ATL2E not ATL1E.
- ATL1 Info.plist edit won't work, because ATL1 and ATL1E are not the same thing.

You are lucky,
ENJOY IT
:)

Does exist even the BSD version... anyway those who know how to create ATL1E kext driver will tell you that it's quite useless knowing that a ATL1E linux/bsd driver exists, that must be write on his own for OSX. :rolleyes:

I know that bsd and linux driver exist... I think those who can write kext should read the driver to understand how does it work, but seems nobody wants to help us... :D

Unfortunately I'm not so able to create a kext and I don't know anything about kext system.

Yes man, there's no kext driver, and if you want to have internet on your P5Q you need to add an ethernet compatible PCI card.

This thread was intended to give this problem more visibility and maybe to recruit someone who knows how to write a kext driver.

Is there any way to port the linux kernel source code I attached to mac?

Vendor: Attansic Corporation
Device: Atheros L1E - ATL1E

Also known on windows as: AR8121 AR8113 AR8114 PCI-E Ethernet controller

1969:1026


ATL1 Info.plist edit won't work, because ATL1 and ATL1E are quiet different.

Many thanks to those who will help this -_-


I tried to rewrite the driver, please wait for 1 ~ 2 weeks

Ok I found this: http://www.freebsd.o...re/support.html
So the BSD driver is called ale4 and here's the manpage: http://www.freebsd.o...eeBSD 8-current

Here's the module bsd browse: http://www.freebsd.o...es/ale/Makefile

And here's finally the BSD code: http://fxr.watson.or...source/dev/ale/ for our driver :D

This was the BSD side, maybe linux driver could be written better then this, I don't know :rolleyes:
