Maybe a good idea but on the other hand it is still not suitable for average users. I will think about it.

Maybe with the proper disclaimers:
- those with chips not supported by the "stable" driver
- experienced users wishing to provide feedback on the new code

Here is another development release which hopefully resolves the WoL issue. As usual sources and prebuilt binaries are included.

So far dev5 has been working great, just like its predecessor. Will report any noticeable problem.

Though I still have to set the speed manually (I don't change any value, just set it manually) to avoid dropped connections while transferring big files through SMB with a windows 7 machine.

Hello virtualm,

 

thanks for your feedback. It's been a while since I last heard from you. I hope everything is well for you? Your message reminds me of the old days one year ago when the project still was in its infancy.  :)

I'm fine, thank you! :> I'm watching this thread, just never had issues with your driver. 

Please let me know if I can test anything.

Hello!

I got really bad download speeds in browsers, tried changing to different versions and everything.

The cause was Bittorrent Sync in the background.

 

The moment I quit Bittorrent Sync the download speed in browsers shoots up.

Torrents still get blazing speeds, but not http downloading if btsync is on.

 

Anyone else has this problem?

Well, if Bittorent Sync is eating up your bandwidth it's no wonder that downloads slow down.

Hah no no.

btsync only has a connection to the folder my other machine, it has nothing to sync, it does not use bandwitdth.

No problems here with btsync and the latest dev version of this driver.  I get my rated internet speed on speedtest.net with btsync running.

Obviously it does something because closing it resolves the issue. Use Wireshark to inspect your network traffic.

having trouble using the newest version on the computer with Realtek 8186E,

 

the osx can recgonize the NIC, but it doesn't work properly. it cannot get the ip address from the DHCP server. And it also cannot detect whether the wire is connected or not.

 

my computer is Acer V5-473g.

 

Thanks for all your contribution. It will be appreciate if you can solve this problem for me :)
