RTL8139 Ethernet card does not work in Lion. No Ethernet connection appears in Sytem Preferances, but the device shows up in System Information app -> Built-in Ethernet. I tried installing different IONetworkingFamily kexts and modified with different AppleRTL8139.kext, but it did not help(perhaps i just haven't find a propper one). I also have AtherosL1cEthernet card installed and it works perfectly. Please, help!

Hi...

I finally got my 8139 working, but without Internet.
In the diagnostic dialog box, only the firsts 3 lights are green.

This is what I did:
I deleted all inside the plug in folder of IONetworkingFamily.kext but realtek related kext.
I added the IOPciMacth code for my card: 0x813610ec
Repair permissions and reboot.

Once restarted, a new network connection was discovered.
Now, I'm fighting with configuration issue.

That is the problem...
Whatever I put into Router item, the third light goes red
Whatever I put into DNS server: Internet light remains red

Any a clue will be welcomed.

Weird, my Realtek RTL8168B in my laptop works fine in both Lion and Mountain Lion with Lnx2Mac's ethernet driver. No need to edit IOPCIMatch, DNS settings, internet settings, or anything (well at least for me). You could try it instead of the default Realtek drivers.
