I wanted to add what I did to get the network to work under Leopard 10.5.0 on my Dell 4700 with the Intel Pro/100 VE onboard nic. The network was saying the cable was unplugged so I opened terminal and typed this:

sudo -s
nano /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/com.apple.Boot.plist

then I added -f under the kernal flags section

then ctrl+x
then y
then enter

go here for screen shots to get a clearer picture of what you might see :

Thank you! Thanks! Thanks!
It works for me! I changed my "IOPCIMatch" in AppleIntel8255x.kext to "0x10928086" (as I usually did with my 10.4.10 Tiger), but without -f flag in kernel this kext was loading with errors in the system.log like "Self test reports invalid ROM contents" and so on. But this time I added this -f flag, as you told, and after reboot it still works! You really help me, thank you a lot!!!

I don't see this posted, so I'm making a HowTo.

Anyways, this for when you have Intel PRO/100 VE. When you go into System Preferences/Network and your Built-In Ethernet is not show/grayed out, this is the fix for you.

You are required to add a product ID AppleIntel8255x.kext, which is located here:
/System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleIntel8255x.kext/Contents/Info.plist

If you don't know how to get into the kext, right click it and choose "Show Package Contents."

Anyways, you will find the following line.


You will have to add the following bit to the end of that line.


In the end, it will look like this:


Save the .plist file (save it to the desktop with the name "Info.plist" and then drag it into the Contents folder for AppleIntel8255x.kext. It will ask for authentication, which you say yes to (must type password if you have one).

Open up Terminal and type in the following



Open Disk Utility and Repair Disk Permissions.

Reboot.

Completed! Open up System Preferences/Network and you should see your Built-In Ethernet



I have been trying solutuons for days withno luck but I have a question, where and how do I find the product ID AppleIntel8255x.kext I fond the line where to eter the 0x.... bit how do I find my ID... since I tried the one provided and dint work??
Thank you

I have a Intel 82566M ethernet on my ThinkPad, and did try the suggested solution by adding 0x10498086 to the .kext file; did not work. Since this guide is for 8255x cards and mine is 8256x do you think I should persist and add -f to appleboot? Anyone had success with a 82566M card?

here is what i do to make it work in leopard:

right click /System/Library/Extensions folder and click "Get Info", click the padlock button below and enter your root password when prompted then click the "+" icon and add your user account giving it read+write permission then click ok..

open the Extensions folder and find IONetworkingFamily.kext then drag and drop it on the desktop or some place(backup is a good idea). now, unzip the file that i attached below and drag it in /System/Library/Extensions.

delete /System/Library/Extensions.mkext (you can delete it on the finder or by typing this on the terminal "sudo rm -f /System/Library/Extensions.mkext"

repair permission and reboot your system

if all goes well, you should be able to see your network card listed.

if it happens that you see your network card but says that there is no ethernet cable plugged in, just delete/System/Library/Extension.mkext and reboot your system. it may or may not resolve the issue but in my case it works so just give it a try..

i was apply this method,but after repair permission,leopard not boot and appear text:"kernel panic"please guide me fix it.thanks

I thought I'd add that I'm running a Thinkpad T40 (2374-KU1). I followed the method exactly but realized the number that you append in the plist file should be your OWN Intel PRO/100 vendor and device id. In my case, my Intel PRO/100 Ethernet has a device id of 103d and a vendor id of 8086, so the line inserted in my case was 0x103d8086. Vendor and device ids can be found in Windows' device manager for your Intel PRO/100 Chipset.

Dang, no joy.

If Windows stated that the ethernet was Intel Pro/100 VE--then any or all of the following these should work, right?

I've tried all of these but the torrent (right now there are no seeds and only about one-fourth of the file) and still nada. Every single time, Network pane still reads "Cable Unplugged."

Anyone have any other ideas?

It's frustrating--this is the only thing that doesn't work on my OSX86 install (and interestingly, the most important thing I need). :)

OK, I'm using iATKOSv 1.0i (Leopard 10.5.1/9B18)

I'll do a fresh install first--but then I apply the Asus Pkg using the included tool, correct?

Do I need to repair disk permissions before I reboot?

I can't even get kalyway to run after install. It cycles and constantly reboots. Tried about 15 times--same result. I'm using iATKOS simply because I know it will boot.

I'll give kalyway one more go--hang on.
