Is there any 32-bit version? I have to use 32-bit mode (GMA950 only works in 32-bit). However, this kext does not work in 32-bit mode.

Most 64bit kexts work fine in 32/64 bit mode.

Replace the AppleRTL8139Ethernet.kext from the Original IONetworkingFamily.kext with the AppleRTL8139Ethernet.kext from the OSX86 site.

Location : /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleRTL8139Ethernet.kext

And then
Put your modified IONetworkingFamily.kext into /S/L/E.
Run "Kext Utility".
Reboot.

I am using a 10a432 in 32/64 bit mode. ( ASUS P5K[ICH9] + Chameleon2 RC3 r658 )

Thanks very much.

However, it still does not work for my onboard 8139. [Lenovo 3000 v100]

I would appericiate it someone helps me...Owners of Realtek 8185 has same problem...

MY 8185 shows up in Ethernet Adapters.. But in network utility it says disconnected.. The problem is that Mac doesnt boot up the card on reboot ..So i think what you guy used to make your card work might work for 8185 but i have no idea on how to do that..so i would appericate it if anyone helps me out..

Hey All,

I have a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Li 1818 and Im trying (in vain) to get the onboard RTL 8139 lan working in snow leopard. Ive been trying for days now using various kexts around but to no avail. Nothing I do seems to work.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

Oli

I don't know why it isn't working for you guys.

(Though, I am using my onboard Intel Marvel Yukon 88E8056 Gigabit Ethernet port, working flawlessly using vanilla kext.)

In fact, the most pathetic thing is that I am using a dummy model "Made in China" RTl 8139 PCI Ethernet card!
But the attached kext does the job for me.

Try installing it as suggested above by "GoodWorld".
It does work. Probably, place the modified IONetworkingFamily.kext in /Extra/Extensions/
Then rebuild kextcache using the following command:
chown -Rf 0:0 /Volumes/Snow/System/Library/Extensionschown -Rf 0:0 /Volumes/Snow/Extrachown -Rf root:wheel /Volumes/Snow/System/Library/Extensionschown -Rf root:wheel /Volumes/Snow/Extrachmod -Rf 755 /Volumes/Snow/System/Library/Extensionschmod -Rf 755 /Volumes/Snow/Extrachown -Rf root:wheel /Volumes/Snow/System/Library/Extensions/chmod -Rf 755 /Volumes/Snow/System/Library/Extensions/kextcache -v 1 -a i386 -a x86_64 -m /Volumes/Snow/System/Library/Caches/com.apple.kext.caches/Startup/Extensions.mkext /Volumes/Snow/System/Library/Extensions/chown -R root:wheel /Volumes/Snow/Extra/Extensions/chmod -R 755 /Volumes/Snow/Extra/Extensions/kextcache -v 1 -a i386 -a x86_64 -m /Volumes/Snow/Extra/Extensions.mkext /Volumes/Snow/Extra/Extensions/
Be it 32 bit or 64 bit mode of booting into Snow Leopard, the .mkext WILL definitely work! Coz I keep switching back and forth between both the modes whenever I am trying new stuff like applications or Kexts.

Both are RAR files. Happy "connectivity"...

Freaky,

Thanks for the guide. I fall into those unlucky network-not-working. :wub:

When I followed your guide, the computer give me "permission error" when I executed kextcache command. So I run Kext Utility.app instead.

But still, the system can't event detect my network card. (onboard Rlt 8102 and PCI Rlt 8139).

Regards,

Hi guys!

I´m new in osx, i have 10.5.8 on G5 and this stupid rtl8139 card so internet was slow and i decided to replace the driver, so i replaced AppleRTL8139Ethernet.kext and IONetworkingFamily.kext as was sugested: http://www.kexts.com...)bit_drive.html
and that was my end, after that I try every possible solution found on this forum and nothing worked out. In my system info under pci slot 3, is 10ec,8139 driver:no
