Right, I got my AR5BXB72 and installed it.

At first glance all is working, its detected and shown with all details in System profiler.

But thats all it does, it wont detect my network.

Any clues??

It has 3 points to connect the aerial - Ive tried all 3 - but which one is correct.

Any help appreciated.

OK, I can confirm that I have a B202 with the Jmicron jmc250 ethernet chip. There is currently no support for this in Mac OS X or the osx86 community as far as I can tell.

Also I have tested the Apple USB>Ethernet dongle and it works great. I managed to hang the machine by pulling it out while active, but I kind of expected that.

Over and out

I have followed your tutorial however your graphics fix in the package causes a gray screen, Im using the b202 w/ DVI to VGA Adapter and it is a gray screen on 10.6.3 combined update. The only work around is to use the default video res and not install the graphics fix, I have tried the 27ae command from kexts.com and it does the exact same thing returning it is a unknown file but it still may work. However it presents the same screen. Can you please look into this / offer up a fix.

hi daniel,

would it be very usefull to make a new installer?
My system is still working perfect. I don't see realy big benefits untill now.
In my case i'll just wait what you do. For me it doesn't have Amy prior use.

Again thanks for this great manual!

i mean a installer for my patches (run the 10.6.4 update, don't restart, run my installer, finish). you won't have to install everything new.

Thanks for the guide it worked great.
All up & running now except sound out of the optical spdif connector.
I'm running it as a htpc using xbmc & so surround sound out would be nice. Has anyone got any ideas or links to info for fixing this?

I ran into the same issue with my 1920x1200 monitor showing 1024x768. My fix for my 27AE GMA950:

1. Get the package of Kexts from here: http://www.mediafire.com/?iunzv1adjyz

2. Unzip

3. Remove the underscores from the front of the two Intel file names.

4. Install the four kexts using http://web.mac.com/v.....Helper b7.zip

Everything else works fine though (although I have the new model so had to swap wireless cards, and the ethernet's still knackered)...

Thank you surroundfan! the above procedure works fine.

What I did: after installing the 10.6.4 update, the 10.6.3 installer patch was applied. I then installed the above kexts and the EEE Box runs fine..

Hello. Using a long-EeeBox with 10.6.3. I have not updated to 10.6.4 because it looks a pach on purpose. Let me know if you can get a list of all the kext to picked up individually by kext.com and have the computer updated with each new release. Thanks

Upgraded to 10.6.4 with new kext files but somehow graphics are very slow, I have the feeling that CI/QE is not working properly :) Did anybody tried out the following solution for graphics fix?
