Problemo. The network card is present , but I can`t get IP address from DHCP. My ISP assings IP from DHCP automatically . In System Preference/Network always shows me that IP is 169.xxx.xxx.xx . I tried renew , but nothing changed . Any ideas????

I use Mac 10.4.8 SSE2/SSE3 by Jas kernel 8.8.1.

Compaq Presario R3275US(P4 Northwood SSE2, igp9100, ati mobility radeon 9200)


Have you solved the problem, because i've got the same or can anybody else solve it?
thank you

using add-in PCI card RTL8139 (white box, unknown)
nic detected as Realtek1000 both before AND after installing PCGenRTL8139Ethernet-1.2.0
(as shown in System Profiler extensions pane)

had to backup and delete RealtekR1000.kext from
/System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/contents/plugins folder before it worked

I'm guessing the RealtekR1000.kext was getting called before the PCGenRTL8139Ethernet.kext since both had
<key>IOPCIMatch</key>
<string>0x816910ec</string>
in their info.plist files, probably stops searching after first match

it may even have been enough to just do this since it's an add-in card rather than onboard and there's already an AppleRTL8169Ethernet.kext installed by default - but haven't tested this.

Just in case it helps anyone else.


It helped. Thanks a lot. The card was al-cheapo RTL8139D based. Have to delete the RealtekR1000.kext

hi,

If I'm right, I can get my onboard RTL8139 Ethernet working on my uphuck 10.4.9 v1.4, if I use a kext from Tubgirl's appropriate release. Would someone help me and email it to me? having no other downloading opportunity, just my non-working osx86 laptop, I could hardly go on without your kind help...:rolleyes: please pm me, if you could send me this kext!

thanks in advance!

In installation information file there is a path to delete AppleRTL8139Ethernet.kext directory
rm -R /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleRTL8139Ethernet.kext

But additional this driver is located in another location and in some situation (like I was) system hang out after start. So additional it shoud be deleted from /System/Library/Extension/:
rm -R /System/Library/Extensions/AppleRTL8139Ethernet.kext

My onboard 8139 is very slow with the leopard stock driver, and older versions of ionetworkingfamily don't work (appears as cable disconnected)

anyone can make this to work with IONetworkingfamily.kext from leopard?
maybe recompile this?

Hey Pal,

I made that mistake long time ago, actually my Dlink DFE-538TX is a Via Rhine Chip based NIC. I am using the driver from www.pinxue.net. It works for me under tiger and Leo! Make sure exact chip your NIC is using, then apply correct driver...

Good Luck,

Envying

Hi this means that this driver will not work for your card.

Best.

On other news a Leo version of the driver has been made by John Stormdrake. People having problems under Leo should try this.

I have an external (PCI) DLink DFE 520TX (RTL 8139?) Lan Card.

I installed the patch mentioned above for leopard but it still won't enable my card.

I would appreciate any help. TIA.

Okay, I just bought a PCI LAN with Realtek 8139D chipset, installed the leopard patch above but it still won't detect my card.

I would really appreciate any help.

Thanks.
