I only can say: IT WORKS FOR ME!!!!
This is great, thank you very very very much!
Its a RTL8111B!
Wow this is amazing! :angel:


I am also trying to get this to work on my askrock conroe945g-dvi but it doesn't seem to be working. Can you tell me exactly what you did to install the driver? I downloaded the 1.02 drivers, unzipped it, opened a terminal and ran the shell script "installrelease". It said the driver loaded successfully, but it's not showing up in the networking control panel nor system profiler.

Thansk!

OK. Let's try something else...
1. Open terminal window:
tail -f /var/log/system.log
And then ok.
2. Open new terminal shell and load debug version of kext.
3. After few minutes copy all info from first terminal and send it to me DaemonES at gmail dot com.


mail sent, thanks for the help :angel:

sunriis You NIC card also reports that link is down (OSX may reports wrong link state), but driver works well (i.e. starts and enables NIC). It maybe due several reasons:
1. Damaged Ethernet cable.
2. Your router (or another machine) cant autonegotiate.

Try to set NIC speed and duplex manually (Network options -> Built in Ethernet last tab).

OK, the installer is now up!
You can download it on my website. :angry:
If the site does not work, try refresh or at last cleaning the cache!
Please give me a feedback! :)

I just recognized that the name RTL1xxx is incorrect!
You know what is meant! :bag:

This is awesome !!

wow my nic is out of the computer now and im woking with my realtek 8111b now!!

Thank man!!!!

Thanks too DaemonES !!! wonderfull work

Thanks Neopheus for your installer i have downloaded it for future use, i installed the "hard" way.

@Neophus RTL1xxx ???? incorrect?

the only problem now is its readed as a pci network card so the PRO apps would not work

i remember tweaking the kexts to tell them they are en0 not en4, any idea how to do that?

Without hardware I can't do this.

aberracus BSD name for NIC card OSX chooses itself, so I don't know how to fix this.

RTL8187 is a wireless device.

This thread is for a wired Realtek ethernet driver.

Hm, again: my name is NeoPheus (or just Neo)! :)
Yes RTL1xxx is incorrect! the chip is named RTL8...
And you can tweak the enS by changing this file:
/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist

Good Luck! :)

Is it working as gigabit ethrnet or not? Yes, it does. 1 gigabit fullduplex.
I'll add Jumbo frame support after succesful tests.
