What about sound/graphics? What is your on board ethernet chipset?

My intel PRO/1000 PM is working on Intel D955XBK motherboard. :(

My intel PRO/1000 PM is working on Intel D955XBK motherboard. :D



have you tested your in-network file transfer speeds with the gigabit card?

supposedly this card can have MTU>1500

maybe 9000 or so...

with this on both ends...you might be able to get 700Mbps instead of 200Mbps... if your hard drives are fast enough...lol

Since the VMWare built-in ethernet drivers do not work, I am wondering if anyone had success using external USB ethernet cards with VMWare? I am not going to do a native install and would like to continue to use VMWare, but lack of network makes it difficult.

My other thought was to use the serial ports+ppp to do some kind of loopback remote access to my host OS. Haven't tried that yet, but I really do want to get this up and going.

Have you tried the Maxxus drivers? I found that when using Vmware in bridge mnode, the network adapter in vmware would get an IP address from my DHCP but couldn't go anywhere. But it works fine in NAT mode.

MacLover, what version of os x86 are you using (10.4.1, 10.4.3 8f1099, or 10.4.3 8f1111). Do you happen to know the chipset of your WMP54GS?

Thanks!
Mark

I have 10.4.3 (8f1111) installed and I have onboard VIA VT6103L 10/100 Ethernet. Under the system profiler it shows up as en0 but it does not show up under system preferences. Any help would be appreciated.

I need help with the tulip driver. I try the command "make install" and it says make: command not found. what do i need to do to get it to compile? Any help would be appreciated.

If anyone has the tulip.kext already compiled for 10.4.3 and some instructions that would be great too.


Hi there. You need to install the developer tools. Go to your isntall dvd. Go to the sub dir > "XCode Tools". Excecute "XcodeTools.mpkg". Your problems will be solved!

I ran "sudo make install", I got all my bibberish. Rebooted, no luck. But I am using a Linksys LNE100TX, this is supposed to be supported. I hope I'm not doing anything wrong!

I tried the manual install also, no luck. Also tried the new version from sourceforge. Any ideas?

This one is for Fuzzlet. . . .

I was kinda mad after I installed 10.4.3 on my Thinkpad A31 and the Intel 82557 wouldn't work. Not too mention the upgraded Broadcom wireless, but thats another topic . . . .So I went looking about and saw you had the same frustration. I tried a lot of things, then I went into /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist and took a look to see what was going on. I was going to specify my IP in here cause I thought it wasn't reading what I did in System Preferences, but the IP and all was right. I checked under <key>HTTPEnable</key>
<integer>0</integer>
<key>HTTPSEnable</key>
<integer>0</integer>

and saw those zeroes and thought that was weird. Switched them to 1's and here I am the forum. Of course you should save the preferences file to the Desktop then copy to that folder to authenticate and replace the other file, I haven't rebooted but its working. . .. .. .

Ok scratch that last bit, I am an idiot at times, turns out you really want those digits to stay as '0', what does work is this:

Go into System Preferences
Go to Network
Built in Ethernet
Then Ethernet Tab
Change the Mode to Half duplex 10MBs
Click on Apply Now

Enjoy

Intel 82557 Chip on Thinkpad A31 running 10.4.3 099 build native.

I 've found a linksys LNE100TX V5.1 and download the X86 Darwin tulip driver v 1.0.0.

the tulip.kext was built in the v1.0.0 so a just had to copy it to extension forlder, change it to 755 and root:wheel and load the kext : works great in osx86 10.4.1 without problem.

had somebody tried this NIC with 10.4.3 8f1099 or 8f1111 ?

I know the lne100 or lne100tx v2 don't work, but what about v4 and v5 in 10.4.3 ?
I've seen a new tulip release v 1.2.0 but you have to compile it, has somebody
download it and compile it for 10.4.3 ?

Another problem :

I tested yesterday the nic but i will have a fast internet connection only next month,
so all seems to work as i can configure a tcp or dsl connection, ping works, the hardware
address is recognized in network prefs, the network utility shows many things, but :

what sort of tests more of a ping could i make (without any connection) in the network utility
to confirm my network card as no anomaly (because i can return it to the shop before 15 days....)

Thanks

hi there i'm new here
wanted to say that i installed osx86 native on my hdd - slave
xp on first drive

i've got a trust 108 mbps wireless pci card adapter
i installed windows vista once 3259 version and i noticed that vista reconized this card as a belkin wireless card!!!!

so i thought!!! lets give it a try and do the same within osx86
and yes it does work
you need to download these drivers and utility : STA_2500CardBus_2005_09_14 from ralink
so i can confirm this card : trust wireless turbo speedshare 108 mbps to work in osx86
with the belkin drivers.

Using the XCode tools under 10.4.3 8f1111a I was able to compile the following kext compiled from tulip 1.0.2

However, it will not load due to a failed dependency:
com.apple.iokit.IONetworkingFamily

Does anyone know how to fulfil this dependency?

Edit: Solved it myself, here is how:

All linksys cards do not work :P . but that is expected, as linksys is a PC only card manufacturer. Looks like I need to shell out on a Realtek card. Does anyone know if there are any Realtek's that support Ubuntu 5.04, windows, and OSX86? Cause networking is essential in Linux ;) .


I have Linksys 100tx v4 working beautifully with the Tulip driver.
You can get the kext here
http://forum.osx86pr...?showtopic=6115

A complete list of cards working under Linux with the Tulip driver is here.
http://pigtail.net/LRP/tulip.html
For OS X some may require changing info.plist in tulip.kext

Have fun!
