Hi!

I've tried installing your driver on 10.4.7 but I could not make it work correctly.

My NIC is a Realtek 8101L, built onboard in a Intel D102GGC2 MoBo.
I could make this adapter work with older distros (Myzaar 10.4.5, detected as Realtek 8139) but with JaS 10.4.6 and 10.4.7 it's not working. The .kext is loaded but in the Networking Preferences panel the built-in adapter appears as disabled (greyed out).

Now, I was trying to make it work in JaS 10.4.6. First of all, the default driver was loaded. So, what I did is delete the AppleRealtek8139.kext from the Extensions folder and then overwrite IONetworkingFamily.kext with a copy of it with the RTL8139 extension deleted. Then, I could make your extension load into memory (it appears on the System Profiler) but still under Networking my built-in adapter is disabled.

Is there any way of debugging or something, so as to know what went wrong?

Thanks for your time,

open 2 terminals
in first type: tail -f /var/log/system.log
in second sh loaddebug

After some time copy log file from first terminal and PM it to me, but be sure that extension loaded correctly.

Okay, I installed the installer, all went fine it seems. It the networksingsettings of the system profiler, I do see the mac-address, so OSX 'knows' the card is there. It doesnt connect though. Apparently, DHCP doesnt get a reply or something. It is working when I boot a linux live cd, so the card/network is fine. Is there any stuff/commands I need to do to get you better info?

Im using the new 10.4.8 DVD by JaS though, is that a problem?

jan_187 I'm not sured works RTL8139 with my driver or not, it seems to be the same like many other RTL810x controllers, but...
Try to set up link speed manually (100 mb full duplex).

Hey, so my nic is not actually a 8101 but a 8139? I set the linkspeed to 100mbits full duplex manually, but I still dont get an IP. When I click 'renew DHCP lease', it just waits like 2 seconds and then continues without an IP, shows no error or anything.

Is there a way to get this nic to work? :D

Edit: it seems to be a 10.4.8 specific problem. I think a kext is missing. Ill do some more experimenting :gun:

Just compare it at all. Drivers is quite different.
jan_187 dependency is missing?

Forcedeth for nForce built-in lan cards.

More info @ http://forum.insanel...showtopic=31824 .

The solution given there seems a bit weird to me. We have to copy all 10.4.7 files over? What's the use of having 10.4.8 then?

jan_187 you can download sources of AppleRealtek8139 from Apple site, recompile it with XCode and install.

Hi folks,
I got basicly the same problem with my realtek 8139 ... In 10.4.6 it worked fine and in 10.4.8 no connection

After installing the RealtekR1000_1.02 the NIC is shown by OSX but it permanently says "no network cable" I can even configure it manually, but nothing works. The NIC is shown as BSD-name: en0

The JaS OSX 10.4.8 runs much more stable than the versions before. Even the DVD player, USB Ports, Printer and FX62000 I finally got to work now. Only the damn network drives me crazy. Anybody an idea?

Thanks in advance

Finally I got my Realtek 8139 onboard LAN to work.
The probelm was because of the broken 10.4.8.iso. But I did not want to wait for the new release.

What I did was copying the AppleRTL8139Ethernet.kext from my old 10.4.6 to the 10.4.8
Then adding a few lines into terminal and that was it.

I had almost given up. So people with Realtek 8139 DON'T give up. There is a way to fix it.

Cheers
