Hi Mieze,

No, I didn't but provided they haven't reworked power management completely like they did in 10.11 (according to the change notes there haven't been any changes with regard to PM in 10.12) and you have the correct SSDT-patch there shouldn't be any problem with large transfers. My intention was to prove that there is no problem preventing 10.12 from booting.

True, I've got the same problem with large file transfers in 10.11 as in 10.12

 

and I have a correct SSDT installed for CPUPM.

 

Regarding the fact that there are a few people here reporting the same problem, there must a bug of some kind that causes this "disconnect" in at least some cases. (certain hardware, maybe?)

 

What info can I provide to help find a cause and hopefully a solution for this?

 

 

Sander.

Hi Mieze,

 

What is the latest release of your Kext ?

 

I thought it was the 2.1.0 but I recently found a 2.1.0d0 release, so I'm a bit confused...

 

Thanks!

Version 2.1.0 is the latest official build. Development versions are marked with the suffix d and a number, e.g. 2.1.0d0, 2.1.0d1, etc. and can be considered as unfinished work.

thanks Mieze, your diver is very good.

 

mainboard: ASUS P8Z77-V pro

Intel 82579V, 1 x Gigabit LAN Controller(s)
Intel LAN- Dual interconnect between the Integrated LAN controller and Physical Layer (PHY)

 

 

1, i cannt wake up my osx from sleep. WOL its not working.

 

2, if i wake up my osx by mouse or keyboard from sleep, only the wifi card is working, Intel 82579V has the green indicator but actually it becoming the second network interface, and not working. i tried to ping Intel 82579V but no response. Once i restart osx, 82579V is working again.

 

any solution for that issues? thanks again.

try enabling or disabling WOL in bios if you have the feature.

First of all, wakeup events are handled by hardware and ACPI firmware alone. The driver is not in control of the hardware during sleep and wakeup. That's why I'm quite sure that this is not a driver issue. According to the problem description there are only two possible causes:

  1. A wrong BIOS setting causing the BIOS to take control of the NIC while sleeping.
  2. A DSDT problem which is the most frequent reason for WoL failure.

Anyway, you might send me your kernel logs as they may contain valuable information about what happened during wakeup.

Here is another development version of the driver (2.2.0d2) in which I implemented support for RXPOLL. Hopefully it might also resolve the randomly occurring tx deadlocks which some users are still experiencing. Source code can be found on GitHub.

 

Good luck testing!

Good news everyone!

 

Just copied a 350GB file to and from my server and did not have one disconnect. I'll try later with about 500GB of smaller files and let you folk know how it goes.

 

Thanks Mieze!
