I have a VIA Rhine III onboard, and it doesn't work. Or, well, it half-works:

1. System profiler recognises On-Board Ethernet, en0
2. Under 10.4.1, the card worked flawlessly

but Network Setup has my ethernet card there as en0, just greyed out. It's deselected, and since it's greyed out, I can't select it.

Yes, the Netgear GA311 works in gigabit mode.



hello. this is my first post.

i installed 10.4.5 on my P4, 2,8 ghz. but now i need another ethernet-card, because my gigabit-card (onboard) doesn't work.
i have two other ethernet-cards who work there, but they are just 10/100er cards. and i want one with gigabit...

as i saw in the forum, it looks like that the card "Netgear GA311" is the one and only gigabit card that works.

but i saw too, that there are some problems with 10.4.4. how it looks like in 10.4.5?


i found this card in a online-shop (http://www.byteline....em&target=18546). but i'm not sure, is this the right one? the product name is "Netgear PCI GA311 IS Gigabit".

it would be great if me someone can help.


thanks, wolli

My board has 2 NICs built in;

Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe, Marvell 88E81001 PCI Gigabit LAN Controller (0x432011ab) (Onboard) -- Not working
Asus A8N-SLI Deluxe, NForce4 Gigabit -- Not working

I added the Marvell device/vendor ID (0x432011ab) to the AppleYukon.kext/Content/Info.plist and the NIC showed up in the list in System Preferences, and the connection lit up on the switch showing gigabit connection. However, System Preferences reports that the cable is not plugged in, while MenuMeters shows en0 as a 10mbps interface...

I'm running 10.4.4 build 8G1165

My onboard Davicom 9102 controller didn't work. Then I installed a Netgear FA311 and that also didn't work.

bought a wireless Netgear WG511T on ebay for $23 incl. shipping. Its a PCMCIA card, and recognized as a Airport card as long as the card is inserted when OSX is booted, if I insert the card after the boot, OSX doesn't see it.
Atheros chipset.

I have a Broadcom 440x in my laptop running 10.4.4, and for some reason, Mac OS X isn't detecting anything in the network. Sound, video, etc work fine, but this network card (which is on the compatibility list as working out of the box) does not work! Is there something I should try to fix it?

Edit: A quick forum search sorted that problem out. I already have Firefox on Mac OS X86, haha!

yeah, I found out if I was in Windows and then just rebooted into OSX that my Broadcom 440x wouldn't work either. I did figure out that if I completely shut down the laptop instead of just restarted it, then booted into OSX, the ethernet worked fine. What solution did you find?

Netgear WG111v2 (USB) does NOT work
3Com 3CRUSB10075 (USB) does NOT work

Neither does the builtin wired NIC OR the wireless in my HP Compaq nc6220. Nothing works. Not even bluetooth.

DLink DWL-G510 rev B (wireless) works great after I went into Library>Preferences>SystemConfiguration>NetworkInterfaces.plist, changed en0 to en1, and change the 0 under IOInterfaceUnit to 1. Rebooted and it recognized it as an airport card.

I too would be interested in the following:

AMD64 Gigabyte Onboard DUAL Ethernet as well as a toshiba A4!

What is the solution?

Am running build 10.4.3

Thanks!

Right now it's installed only on the Gigabyte board and threw in what I thought was a old networking card (3com) but don't think it works. The lights, nor the on-board, never go on.

With the laptop, I am still running Win XP!

Thanks! :hysterical:

CORRECTION, it was a D-Link, I now put in the OLD OLD 3COM and am up and running!

YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY'!

I am running 10.4.3, is this safe, why update? Also, what are some solutions for running the OSX (version please) on a Toshiba A4?

Thanks!

Microsoft MN-730 PCI (broadcom 4325 i think) detects as Airport Extreme after changing en0 to en1 and 4320 to 4325 in some other file.
