have you really verified that?? 

 

Yes.

I have 82572(EXPI9400PT), 82574(EXPI9301CT), 82579(DZ68DB onboard) and all of them link at 1Gbps.

 

Is it new in 2.4.14, i.e. you never had the problem in previous versions ?

I cannot fix your problem, but you may try:

1. Remove /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist  and all the adapters in the network control panel, then reboot and add ethernet adapters from scratch,

2. Check your machine in different environments ( cables/switches/routers, operating systems, or adapters if available ),

3. Build the driver from the source and debug.

Are you aware of any projects that currently port the Intel ixgbe 10GbE driver to Mac OS X for the Intel 82599 controller (Intel X520) etc?

No. I had the gene V mobo a few days ago.. no project..

Hnak: i'll try.but I'm nit a developer..I'm afraid to compile or manage a source.

It's there a way to rally check the internal lan speed.. I suppose the text written in the system log is 100.. but this is always written even if I force negotiation to 1000

LAN adapters/switches usually have LEDs to indicate connection speed.

You can also launch Network Utilities.app in /Applications/Utilities to get the basic information of all the network adapters.

Ok. I did all . Removed entries.. and plist.

 

I discovered that I cannot do a manual setup of negotiation.

 

So I have to repeat all the story from scratch.. because  I had my troubles supposing I changed properly the speed.

I mean: If I move the setting to Manual, select 1000, and click APPLY.. I never come back to see if the OS kept my choices!

but.. I discovered that it never keep any manual choice.

 

So it  always stay in automatic.. and keep 100full.

 

the system is connected directly to a switch gigabit. and yes it's blinking 100.

The driver always try to negotiate best possible speed, i.e. ignores manual speed settings.

So, it seems failing in negotiating 1Gbit link with your switch.

Can you link up at 1Gbps using other operating systems ?

don't know. sincerely. I never want to install windows .. yes I can try a live ubuntu.. but.. I know I'll have gigabit with ubuntu

 

other peripherals connected to the switch are gigabit. yes.. I bought that switch only to have my lan gigabit. my next switch will be a jumbo frame gigabit

hy

 

i'm using that latest driver.. I see it's loaded in the kextstat as 

com.insanelymac.driver.AppleE1000e (2.4.14)

 

mine is 82579v 

my mobo is Asus maximus Gene V

 

the problem is that it's only 100Mb Full Duplex.. never 1000 !

if I force manually the setup .. it run 100 and I see it in the System.log log.

 

have you really verified that?? 

 

how to have really gigabit lan??

 

bye

I have the same ethernet chipset and it is curious I had not realized until now but I am having the same issue.

AppleIntelE1000e(Info): e1000e NIC Link is Up 100 Mbps Full Duplex

I saw that the problem also occurs on other operating systems.

Manual setting can be only used to limit the link speed, cannot make it higher than auto-negotiation.
Try different cable/switch/NIC.
 
By the way, I just uploaded the TSO enabled one.
