hi, marionez.

As you know, I do not have this motherboard. You can test it?
The Problem already exists:
1. Can not change MTU,it is set to 1500.
2. Can not work after sleep,because power management function do not implements.

The test way, in terminal:
sudo sh loadrelease.sh

I need the following information:
Motherboard type:
OS version: 10.5.2 / 10.5.6 / ...
IONetworkingFamily version: 1.5.0 /1.6.0 /1.6.1 / ...
MAC address is correct: yes / no
DHCP client address is correct: yes / no
Can ping router pass: yes / no
Can surfing internet: yes / no
Other Problem:

Hi reader02 great thanks for this!! ;)
So, here are some informations, hope this could help, fell free to ask everything you need, I'll answer as soon as possible :D


Motherboard type: Asus P5Q (only P5Q with anything else not P5Qc P5Q-E they're other versions)
OS version: 10.5.6
IONetworkingFamily version: <string>Version 1.6.0, Copyright 2000-2006 Apple Computer, Inc.</string>
MAC address is correct: yes (I think yes, check ifconfig output I posted from both: linux and osx)
DHCP client address is correct: no
Can ping router pass: no
Can surfing internet: no

sh loadrelease.sh
 file attribute adjusting for  AttansicL1eEthernet.kext
 extension AttansicL1eEthernet.kext has potential problems:
 Warnings
 {
	 "Kext has immediate dependencies on both com.apple.kernel and com.apple.kpi components; use only one style" = true
 }
 
 kextload: extension AttansicL1eEthernet.kext appears to be loadable
 kextload: AttansicL1eEthernet.kext loaded successfully

I installed and immediately asks to configure the network card, if I plug the cable, DHCP doesn't work and pluggin it's not recognized.
If I set a manual IP it seems to be "green-plugged-cable" but it doesn't work. Even rebooting driver won't starts to work properly.

After reboot if I do again the same procedure, I don't have plugged cable.
I must enter in advanced mode and I have to set the connection type to 100base TX (that was not automatically recognized), everything manual even IP. Now it's green again.

ifconfig says:
en1: flags=8863<UP,BROADCAST,SMART,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
		 inet6 xxxx%en1 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x5
		 inet 192.168.1.58 netmask 0xffffff00 broadcast 192.168.1.255
		 ether xx
		 media: 100baseTX <half-duplex> (100baseTX <full-duplex>) status: active
		 supported media: autoselect 10baseT/UTP <half-duplex> 10baseT/UTP <full-duplex> 100baseTX <half-duplex> 100baseTX <full-duplex> 1000baseT <half-duplex> 1000baseT <full-duplex>

ping to router:
ping 192.168.1.1
 PING 192.168.1.1 (192.168.1.1): 56 data bytes
 ping: sendto: Host is down
 ping: sendto: Host is down
 ping: sendto: Host is down

Now if I try to set back "using DHCP" I have, ifconfig:
en1: flags=8863<UP,BROADCAST,SMART,RUNNING,SIMPLEX,MULTICAST> mtu 1500
		 inet6 xxx%en1 prefixlen 64 scopeid 0x5
		 inet 169.254.144.203 netmask 0xffff0000 broadcast 169.254.255.255
		 ether xxx
		 media: 100baseTX <full-duplex> status: active
		 supported media: autoselect 10baseT/UTP <half-duplex> 10baseT/UTP <full-duplex> 100baseTX <half-duplex> 100baseTX <full-duplex> 1000baseT <half-duplex> 1000baseT <full-duplex>
So now it's in self-assigned IP mode, it can't reach the router.

At the end if I unplug the cable connection is still green-connected.
Update now it recognize cable plug/unplug

Update:
ifconfig from linux box:
ifconfig
 eth0	  Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr xxx
		   inet addr:192.168.1.58  Bcast:192.168.1.255  Mask:255.255.255.0
		   inet6 addr: xxx/64 Scope:Link
		   UP BROADCAST RUNNING MULTICAST  MTU:1500  Metric:1
		   RX packets:21 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 frame:0
		   TX packets:35 errors:0 dropped:0 overruns:0 carrier:2
		   collisions:0 txqueuelen:1000
		   RX bytes:5989 (5.8 Kb)  TX bytes:5179 (5.0 Kb)
		   Interrupt:59

Thanks!! ;)

Hi marionez, thanks.

The MAC address is correct.
If the DHCP client address is not correct, it indicates that there is problem code.No need to manually set ip address.

I need more information. please re-download file.and in terminal type that:
tail -f /var/log/system.log
sudo sh loaddebug.sh

The end, please upload the text of the log.

Hi Marionez & Reader02,

I'm so happy that some people is trying to get this driver functional on MAC.
Couldn't be more nice if this driver would work.
Many people would get so happy + me.

Hi, this looks like the same card that is in my Acer Aspire 6920G. Reports as AR8121 in windows. I hope you can get a working driver. I can help test if you need it.

Ok, I added your notebook in the first post list.

Please all signal your device missing that list. Thanks

Reader02 you really made a great job, with many many compliments for your programming ability, you've been so fast ;)

Works very well!

After sleep driver doesn't start, an hard solution (workaround) could be:
kextunload /System/Library/Extensions/AttansicL1eEthernet.kext/
kextload /System/Library/Extensions/AttansicL1eEthernet.kext/

So driver re-start and now it works.

Drivetheone I'm Italian too, if you want information about that wireless driver, please try to post on a specific thread, otherwise we make some confusion. ;)
