Hi,

You can add the Acer Aspire One D150 to your list.

I have installed the package without problems!

Nice work!

Cheers,
Brambo

===================================================================
Reader02 made the driver!!!
So thanks him for this great job! :P

You can find last fully working AttansicL1eEthernet.kext driver version on 10.5.6 here (click)

===================================================================
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! :)

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
:(



Works perfectly on my Asus 1000HE. Now I wish someone would figure out how to get wireless working!

It's really strange, I don't have that problem. You're sure is not an internet provider issue... ?
Some provider stops your connection if you're using p2p.

Hi, L1E Driver works fine here, on Asus p5KPL-CM :)
but, a problem occurs every 6 or 7 hours.
This is a piece of kernel log

[AttansicL1eEthernet] Error: rx sequence number error (rx=22395) (expect=50515)
 ... ...
  [AttansicL1eEthernet] Error: rx sequence number error (rx=22395) (expect=50527)

and a disconnection occurs. No ping to any host is possible, but the card is UP and running for ifconfig.
If i reload the kext, the connection works again.

Tell me if i can log something more and how.
Finally, ty very much for the good work :(


Try the kext file.

When an rx sequence number error occurs, reset the hardware.In that case the system log output only an error, rather than continuous output error. And the card will not be disconnected.

After testing by luna1111 ,If this issue is resolved, i will upload the source file.

Awesome you developed a driver for this. I am about to reinstall my whole system so I was cruisin' the forums and found a driver for Attansic 1969:1026 from you. :thumbsup_anim:


I gave up hope last year and bought a network card.

This time I am gonna try your driver!!

Many many thanks!!!! :star_smile:

Hi reader02,

Thanks for you work, unfortunately I'm still experiencing the same sleep issue. It keeps assigning a Self-Assigned IP after sleep on eee pc 1000h.

Try the kext file.

Ok, sorry for delay but i want to try the kext for 2 days.
Does not work. I have only one message from kernel (as you said) but same results.
The connection works for more hours (12 or more) but i have disconnections anyway.
No ping to any host as before.
Reload the kext works.
Tell me if you want something more than the logs you have.
Ty for your work, as usual :rolleyes:

EDIT: Seems to be the connection "die" slowly. For example ...
root [/System/Library/Extensions] OSX # ping 192.168.123.254
 PING 192.168.123.254 (192.168.123.254): 56 data bytes
 ping: sendto: No route to host
 ping: sendto: No route to host
 64 bytes from 192.168.123.254: icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=1.213 ms
 64 bytes from 192.168.123.254: icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=0.604 ms
 64 bytes from 192.168.123.254: icmp_seq=4 ttl=64 time=0.603 ms
 ping: sendto: No route to host
  ping: sendto: No route to host
and then it dies completely (no ping and no message at all from ping).
Maybe can be useful for you ?

This error with the hardware-related, it is difficult to modify. Temporarily,i commented the error check. At first ,you have a try. let's see if it will be disconnected. so you can't see the error message from kernel.

I'm trying the kext. Even if the results are not good, i want to thank you anyway for your work. ^_^ A question: in this way (comment error check) i think i *can* have a corrupted data flow. Is this true ?
