Not for Vista...

Anyways, found a site that had my device ID, so got it from that, and network works now. :wacko:

Has anybody gotten this to work on 10.4.10? I had it working fine and easily on 10.4.9, but when I loaded 10.4.10, it no longer works.

iCrash's file worked for me on a Gateway MT6821. The weird thing is that Gateway insists that this laptop has an Intel LAN chipset, but provides Marvel drivers on their support site. :)

This is known problem for acer notebook. It seem osx didn't fully support PCI-express bus in acer notebook.

Ok, just wanna say you guys are awesome! I changed my the device & vendor codes like you said and well I'm writing this on my hackintosh. Below is a screen shot of my system.Changing my plist dev & ven codes fixed my ethernet problem. But I have noticed that while trying to update iTunes I get this error:The file index-leopard-seed-1.sucatalog couldnt be found on the server swscan.apple.com. Has any of you guys or gals found a fix around for this? Help a noob out, whatdaya say... please.

For some reason my ethernet only works and connects to the internet if I boot up using "-f" at boot.

I don't understand why it doesn't work when I boot up normally.

Has anyone got any advice or a solution.

Thankz in advance

It works!! I downloaded the IONetworkingFamily.kext.rar.zip (file above) "delete the .zip part" and unrar
after you replace it in the extensions folder and:
sudo su
chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/
chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/
rm /System/Library/Extensions.mkext
Repair Disk Permissions with Disk Utility
reboot

go to system preferences
click on network
it say ethernet is unplugged
so I play around by deactivating and reactivating ethernet nothing works
so I give up and close it and it ask me to save changes
so when I save it... it starts working like magic!!

Is your card a Marvell Yukon Fast Ethernet, or is it Gigabit(10/100/1000) ethernet? Most of us that have problems have it with the Fast(10/100) version of the card.

Bleh....if I use this kext then it'll replace the kext I used for the Time Machine fix. Is there a more specific part of this kext that I can replace, or some way to just edit whatever needs to be edited?

idk what is the fix for Time Machine? I assume you can just swap out the AppleYukon.kext

Awesome. He said the file was listed above, but I just went through this thread and couldn't find it--is it an attachment or a link to crapshare or something?

[edit]
Nevermind, I found it.

I've tried doing this and it didn't work. But it could be that because the IONetworkingFamily.kext that I'm using shows an AppleYukon2.kext instead of plain old AppleYukon.kext. Maybe if I switch the two around it'll work. I'll try this and post back with the results.

[edit]
Didn't work. I'm gonna switch the two whole kexts and see if even that will work, and if it does I can just replace the binary. Maybe...

[edit 2]
Didn't work. Still waiting for a working fix...
