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


If still doesn't work, delete AppleHPET.kext and it should work for you...

So, is there a better fix then removing the AppleHPET.kext? I'm running 10.6.6 and my onboard ethernet isn't working on my Dell Dimension 4700 unless I remove this kext.

Hi everyone
I have a Toshiba Satellite A100-750 (PSAARE) with an Intel PRO/100VE NIC.
the problem is that I tried all the solutions posted here BUT the NIC dosn't want to show up :(
if someone has a fix please let me know that :)
I use iDeneb 10.5.8; Intel Core2 Duo T5200 @1.60 GHz, 2 GB 533 Mhz DDR2 SODIMM.
thanks for your cooperation!!
ps: I don't know the PCI/VEN id. Someone has a method for knowing that directly inside Leo? because I don't have a linux/Win XP cd.
EDIT: it's 1092 and 8086. found using DSL image (only 44 Mb)
