I have transferred a 2.6 GB file over windows sharing (samba?). Windows reported incoming bytes/sec at around 14.6 MB/s, OSX was reporting 28 MB/s under Activities Monitor. If you pm me with your email I'll send you a windows screenshot of the network traffic. (a sharp drop in speed on the graph coincided with a click from one of the hdd's so I guess the OS was putting it to sleep so don't worry about that).

why doesn't it work for me? I have the exact same integrated Network Gigabit LAN?

Did you modify the plist so that you include the deviceid of your network device?

Ok, a really dumb question. Where, and how do I modify the appleyukon.kext? I can't find it!

I don't think there is one, this is the port of the skge driver from linux so look for something like skge.kext . Yukon is for the yukon2 chipsets (this is for the yukon1's but no one is calling the yukons).
Check wheter this driver applies for your network interface.
These are the comments you can get from the linux kernel on chipset support:

SKGE config comments:

It does not support the link failover and network management
features that "portable" vendor supplied sk98lin driver does.

+ This driver supports adapters based on the original Yukon chipset:
+ Marvell 88E8001, Belkin F5D5005, CNet GigaCard, DLink DGE-530T,
+ Linksys EG1032/EG1064, 3Com 3C940/3C940B, SysKonnect SK-9871/9872.
+
+ It does not support the newer Yukon2 chipset: a separate driver,
+ sky2, is provided for Yukon2-based adapters.

Hey all,

I just found this thread and driver yesterday, and it worked without a hitch on my 3C940, in 10.4.3. To the devs. thanks a million, i was using an old 10MBps card, and it sucked. Back to Gigabit.....

I have P4P800 Deluxe which must have identical onboard lan (3c940).
I checked Ubuntu live results. It showed that it's Yukon skge device but not showing somethinglike 88e8001.
I edited info.plist under Appleyukon.kext.
I copied skge.kext into Extensions directory.
But even dmesg doesn't show any trace of network.
What did I do wrong?
Ethernet is wholly out in dmesg.
Please advice me what I should do.
I used Jas 10.4.6 install dvd with PPF1.

I tried to find what ven & dev I have on my onboard 3c940 lan. It's odd. It's VEN 10B7 (3COM), DEV 1700.
How come I have totally different DEV and VEN though I have same board with other's ASUS P4P800 DX?

you should edit the info.plist in the skge.kext, not Appleyukon.kext

Thanks for your input.
I'll try again.
BTW, is it possible that I have a different lan though it's 3c940?

I attach my dmesg. I have no idea what I should look at for any possible problem.
At least I do not see any ethernet device detected or loaded.

Regards,

Kisoo

it's very easy
FIRST, replace 0x432011AB with 0x170010b7 in the info.plist
THEN, follow install instructions

Thanks
Now it works!!!

I changed 0x432011AB into 0x170010B7 (which I found in PC windows registration info).
Then kextcache -k skge.kext.

This is what I got now.

skgeosx::probe(ethernet)
skgeosx::start(ethernet) <1>
skgeosx: SKGE for OSx86 v0.2d ---- M.Musashi 2006
skgeosx: VendorID:10b7 DeviceID:1700 Rev:12
skgeosx: board is Yukon
skgeosx: Ethernet address 00:0e:a6:47:fa:76
skgeosx: Enabled!
skgeosx: setMulticastMode on
skgeosx: setMulticastMode off
skgeosx: link speed now 100 Mbps, full duplex.
skgeosx: setMulticastMode on


So now I proved that this skge.kext works with P4P800 3C940 onboard lan though vendor and device ids are different from 0x432011AB.

Thanks Musashi!
