Intel PRO/100 VE works under OS X Lion and Mountain Lion.

Download this kext:

Unpack it, right click on AppleIntel8255x.kext, Show Package Contents, open file Contents/Info.plist

Find this line and change it to match your card VEN and DEV id:
<string>0x10928086</string>

Go to /System/Library/Extensions/
Remove AppleHPET.kext and after that find IONetworkingFamily.kext

Right click on IONetworkingFamily.kext, Show Package Contents, go to folder /Contents/PlugIns/ and copy here AppleIntel8255x.kext you modified.

I can verify that this works in lion, too. I pulled the hardware ID from a ubuntu live cd and lspci -nn. It didn't work on the first try but then I copied IONetworkingFamily.kext from S/L/E to the desktop and reinstalled it with kext helper. After reboot the adapter worked perfectly.

Thanks so much for the guide!

why so complicated? No need for AppleIntel8255x.kext to be inside IONetworkingFamily.kext .. it does not even need to get installed into S/L/E - it works perfectly out of E/E .. Lion 10.7.3, Cham. 1957.

ANY 1 GOT THIS WORKING YET? Took me a while to get it sorted this is what i done.


1: Go to /System/Library/Extensions/
Remove AppleHPET.kext and after that find IONetworkingFamily.kext

2: Go to /System/Library/Extensions/

Right click on IONetworkingFamily.kext, Show Package Contents, go to folder /Contents/PlugIns/

unrar the AppleIntel8255x.kext.rar file that is attached and copy AppleIntel8255x.kext then paste into the above folder.

3: Now open Terminal.app and type in sudo vi /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleIntel8255x.kext/Contents/Info.plist and press Enter.


4: You will be prompted to enter your password. Do it.
5: press 'J' key to move down your cursor and you will find something like the following below.

<key>IOPCIMatch</key>
<string>0x10518086 ********** 0x10508086 0x10298086 0x10308086&amp;0xfff0ffff 0x12098086 0x12278086 0x12288086 0x12298086 0x24498086 0x24598086 0x245d8086 0x10918086 0x10608086&amp;0xfff0ffff</string>

6: Insert your device ID and venderID where i have 10 *'s above. mine is 0x27DC8086, my deviceID is 27DC and venderID is 8086.

7: It should look like this after -
<key>IOPCIMatch</key>
<string>0x10518086 0x27DC8086 0x10508086 0x10298086 0x10308086&amp;0xfff0ffff 0x12098086 0x12278086 0x12288086 0x12298086 0x24498086 0x24598086 0x245d8086 0x10918086 0x10608086&amp;0xfff0ffff</string>


8: To insert, press 'I' key and now you are in inserting mode, now move across to where your going to type then write your ID where i have the *'s. When done, press 'ESC' key to exit from inserting mode.

9: Its now time to save. write ':wq!' to save and exit vi mode.

10: now, write the following line on Terminal.app to clear kext cache.
rm /System/Library/Extensions

11: Quit the Terminal.app

12: Reboot MAC OS X and will show your connected to internet.

Dear @hnak, would you be able to sign this kext for mavericks?

 

cause were are not able to get the AppleIntel8255.kext loaded successfully in mavericks after subsequent reboots.  When the kext is installed using kext utility it works on initial restart but on next boot it fails to load. The kext has been added to the AppleKextExcludeList, still it fails to load most of the time (intermittently it does load successfully) .
