Hello there,

I've just installed OSx86 10.4.6 (JaS patched) for my IBM ThinkPad R40.

On startup, everything worked perfectly with one hitch.

My built-in ethernet and wireless card are broken. They stopped working long ago, and so I am using a PC Card.

It's a Xircom RealPort CardBus Ethernet yadayada,
the most important part being that it's PNPID is 0x0003115D

I've figured out how to patch my Kext files to input my PNPID, but I can't find a kext that supports it.

I can't find a single trace of people having success with Xircom cards, and I can't quite find out what my next step is.

As I search online for "0x0003115D" I find what appears to be some Linux driver-related stuff, with the text "Xircom Tulip Clone"

I think I'm going to try out the old tulip.kext...

Anyways,

can anyone point me in the direction I should go?

Thanks for your time.
