I've been using the AppleRTL8169Ethernet.kext v 2.0.6 from the RTGMac_v2.0.6 pkg for a while and it worked perfectly (with limited transfers at 10baseT/UTP full duplex). But for an unkown reason, it just stoped working since a couple of days. I've experience a severe Hard Drive crash and I re-installed my setup on a new one one using a very recent Time Machine backup so my new configuration is strictly the same, my HD is just bigger (from 500 GB to 1 TB).
The kexts are the same and all my others harware components works like they always have - all but this damn Ethernet kext don't !
I've of course reinstall it. No luck.
I've tried a dozen of others kexts for this NIC type (RealtekR1000SL.kext, AttansicL1eEthernet.kext, a wide range of AppleRTL8169Ethernet.kext iterations, Niresh auto-detect package etc.) but no way.
None of them detects an Ethernet adpater. I finally have better luck with this kext AppleRTL8169Ethernet.kext v 1.0.3 found on Niresh's web site but it seems to be design for ML and even if the adpater is recognized in Network's System Preferences, it just don't work (tried 10baseT 100baseTX, 1000baseT at both half and full duplex).
Any ideas folks ? It drive's me cray !
