I have a Gigabyte Z77-UP4-TH board running 10.9.4 that is generally excellent.

 

However I've noticed that if you use tcpdump (or anything that uses the built in Mavericks libpcap) that it will kill the RTL8169 based ethernet driver. No further packets can be sent/received.

 

Has anyone else come across this and found a fix?

I do not know if you have tried Realtek's own kext (download at the bottom of the page). Is says it is for 10.7, but has worked excellent for me on 10.8, 10.9 and now 10.10. I am running GA-Z87M-D3H and things are working flawlessly for me, including tcpdump.

yes, I tried it but it's not optimized, at least I wasn't able to establish connections through virtualbox bridged network.

that's why I used to one suggest, it's based on the latest linux source code.

I installed the RTL8111 driver that was linked, this seems to have done the trick. Thanks.
