ST1000SPEX is RTL8111B and should work. if it doesnt the lnx2mac driver should


btw u could make a legacy kext for the Intel EXPI9301CTBLK if u have to add the id to the info.plist

I'm also looking for something native. My onboard Realtek + lnx2mac driver just poops the bed when stopping vmware.

I've found very pricey Sonnet cards, and Intel cards that seem like they should work.

I don't mind editing a kext plist... My main goal is to be using a native Mac driver and not the lnx2mac or other 3rd party drivers.

Any card under $40 that fits the bill is good.

Any pointers? (Yes, been through the HCLs, all of them, not interested in PCI, need PCI-e for GigE).

Thank you for fast answering.
I only looked here before:

Rosewill RC-401-EX: Sounds very good, but I don't find a seller in Germany
Ovislink 8169: is PCI-X,and I don't find a seller in Germany too
ST1000SPEX: I don't find a seller in Germany

I think the only or best way is to buy the EXPI9301CTBLK and edit the plist

DOA. I have a couple of these though, and the others work great. They use the realtek 8111e chipset, so if you're looking to use this for a hackintosh, get something else.

but i found this one SD-PEX24009
