Anyone here got the same LAN card as me?
Every kext I find for it is called BCM57722D and only one of the several I've downloaded will even give me the option to create a LAN connection but it won't get a valid ip address.
The annoying thing is I had it working at one point, I think it is a matter of changing IONetworkfamily.kext as well but none I've tried seem to work.
Has anyone got this working ok? does it need a dsdt edit?

Finally found a kext that works, joy!
It has to go inside OINetworkingFamily.kext in the plugins folder.

Where did you find it as the ones I find say they wont work if under "intense" traffic? Also could you post it pre-inserted into IONetworkingFamily.kext? It doesnt seem to like me inserting it myself and wont work for me :-(

I can't remember where I found it, I tried so many before I got this one. I can't say how it performs under heavy traffic, I just tested it quickly by visiting a few websites and checking my e-mail.
Here is my modified IONetxworkingfamily.kext.

Thanks... do you have USB working for mass storage devices? It only seems to work for mice/keyboards for us mere mortals!!!
