Hello:

I have a Realtek 8101L and could not make it work, even after removing AppleRealtek8139.kext. I think the problems is that, at least in JaS 10.4.7, there are two copies of the 8139 Extension, one in the Extensions directory and another one inside de IONetworkingFamily.kext. I've tried removing it from inside it, repaired permissions, etc, but something fails and I can't get my system to boot up normally; in fact, I had to reinstall my whole system.

Any ideas? Thanks :D

Vieux Lyon IMHO you need just edit Info.plist of Apple driver and remove vendor and device id of yours card.

Just to post a follow up. I replaced my card with a different Netgear GA311 and now it's working fine in both Windows and OSX.

Hi! Thanks for the awesome driver! now i can finally surf the internet on OSX! :)

However, there seems to be a problem. After almost half an hour or so, the mac will grey out and then ask me to restart my laptop.

btw, i am using asus 6j btw. My network is working fine in Windows.

Thanks in advance for any help! :)

Hi!

I tried that, now the two extensions are loaded correctly (Realtek1000 and IONetworkingFamily) but still internet not working...under the Networking Preferences panel the Built-In Ethernet is still "greyed" (disabled).

Any other suggestions?

I've found out a file called NetworkingInterfaces.plist and inside it there is a reference to Realtek8139, but not to Realtek1000, could editing something inside that file help?

Thanks :gun:

I have a problem with my 8139, and I read here in this topic someone installed the DaemonES driver and had success.
My problem is that each time I open Network config from preferences pane, a new Built-in Ethernet port is detected. Also, each port configuration change I make, one or more new port is added and the change I made is then immediatly by-passed.
I don't know if this driver solve my problem, but I hope so.
Then, please somone can post the proc to correctly install the new driver starting from a system with still the original kext for a 8139 NIC?

ThanX!

gajda OK, it seems to hardware problem. There are two main reasons:
1. DMA channels conflict on your MoBo (I can't something to do).
2. IRQ of NIC adapter shares between different devices. So please check that.

Mine still doesn't work. I have, what looks like an onboard Realtek 8139. It is integrated onto my ATIIXP motherboard. I can't get it working at all.

I've loaded the drivers but unfortunately they haven't helped, OS X still doesn't see the thernet card.


Any ideas?
