Looks ok! The only thing which makes me wonder is that ASPM is enabled which may cause power management issues on some machines but as DHCP is working, it's obvious that there is inbound and outbound traffic on the interface.

I'm unable to disable ASPM in my BIOS.

May 31 20:47:43 iMac kernel[0]: Ethernet [RealtekRTL8100]: RTL8101E: (Chipset 0) at 0x<ptr>, 70:5a: f:19:94:5c

 

Chipset 0 is correct and  "at 0x<ptr>" is normal?

 

If it's correct, where is the error? I tried every kext related to RTL8101E and only your kext seems to work, but no luck...

 

If I use nullcpupowermanagement.kext, maybe it works?

There is no indication of a driver issue. In case of an ASPM related failure, the link would constantly go up and down (every few seconds) without ever acquiring an IP address.

mate, I'm facing the exact same issue. My chipset is RTL8136. This was the only driver that worked. I am also getting IP and everything, but no internet. Were you able to find any solution?

Should these driver support an RTL81001/2/6E PCI Express Fast/Gigabit Ethernet Controler as Gigabit?

 

Is up and running for a Capitan Lenogo B50-50 but only at 100 Mbit not Gigabit

Did you manage to fix the issue somehow? Same issue over here... 0x<ptr>, IP but no WAN connectivity

Hi,

I am facing exactly the same problem. The driver looks to work perfectly, DHCP gives the right IP and the rest of parameters but no connectivity to internet.

My hardware: HP Pavilion 17-g072, i7-5500U @2.4GHz, Intel HD 5500, 12 GB RAM, WiFi on USB Archer_T2U. Working systems:

Win10, Linux Ubuntu, El Capitan and macOS Sierra.

Of course, The Realtek card works perfectly with Win10 and Ubuntu.

 

Is it something with HP laptops, as I can see people with these machines mostly report this issue.

 

Regards to all,

Henryk

I just wanted to let you know that I'm working on an update of the driver which supports newer hardware and is optimized for Sierra and El Capitan.

I've been having a hard time getting this card to work. I installed the lnx2mac driver v 0.90 and nothing is showing under ethernet.

Unfortunately I can't help you as this is a PCI card but the driver only supports PCIe devices. Sorry!

No problem man, I won't be needing this pci NIC card anymore since I found a newer kext to support my lan ports on my xw8600 workstation optimized for El Capitan. My issue was when I wake up from sleep, I'd lose Internet access.

Hello, I'm also using this with 8136 chipset and have exactly the same issue, everything recognised totally fine and all working except internet! Not a huge deal for me as I seldom use ethernet and mainly wanted it working in order to use the App Store, but I look forward to a new version of this anyway and will test as soon as it's available.

 

Thanks for all the hard work Mieze, much appreciated :)

As already announced weeks ago, here is the first development version 2.0.0d3 of the driver. Among several changes I added:

  • Support for Apple's private driver interface in order to resolve stability issues under heavy load and with virtualization software.
  • Support for polled receive mode.
  • Also supports RTL8107E which can be found on a number of new boards/notebooks.

Please take into account that this is new driver which is still under development and might have bugs, cause kernel panics, etc so that you should be prepared to recover from these situations.

 

Special thanks to user p569 for testing the driver on his RTL8107!  :thumbsup_anim:

 

Good luck testing!  :cat:

Will the new driver work with RTL8101/2/3 Family Ethernet NIC

Vendor Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller.

This is a laptop

(Cheked by HWiNFO64)

 

On Windows 8.1 x64 I have Driver installed for RealTek PCIe FE Family Controller and it works fine.

 

I want to install El Capitan 10.11.6 on this laptop and want to confirm if the new update resolves the previous issues

As test results have been quite promising, at least here hasn't been any bug report :) , I decided to push the source code to GitHub and also updated the prebuilt binary in the download section.

 

Have fun!
