blah ...

copy my modyfied extension into the /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins

Change/Add device into the Info.plist ( still needed, if this not help you must patch with hexeditor my kext )

then run

sudo -s
cd /
cd /System/Library/Extensions/
ln -s IONetworkingFamily.kext com.apple.iokit.IONetworkingFamily.kext

rm /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache
rm /System/Library/Extensions.mkext
chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions
kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions

and reboot.

Patching with Hexeditor :

-Expample, device id 169c ( bcm 5788 )
-patch on hex 37336 from "66 81 FA 59 16" to "66 81 FA 9C 16".

Thats all. I will patch the 10.4.4 drivers too, but currently try to run the 10.4.3

Unpack the zip file, should be easy on OS X, just open the zip :weight_lift:

Then right click on the AppleBCM5701Ethernet.kext and select from the menu "Copy"

Ehm, open finder, go to the system -> library -> extensions , select IONetworkingFamilykext, right click -> Show package contents, then got into Contents -> PlugIns . In this folder right click on free space, and paste from menu.

Heh, this should be easy enought, or ?

Pls help me.
My HP nc6220 has broadcom 5751, PCI ID 167D, but the nic did not correctly work with your patch of kext.
I did modification on on hex 37336 with the NIC's PCI ID, but also failed.
Here it the boot log, so pls let me know what I need to do more.

Has there been anything with broadcom 4306 to be happy about. OSX works flawlessly on my machine except for the fact that my realtek ethernet or my broadcom wireless wont work. if anyone can help me I'd be sooooooooo appreciative :excl:

Clearly everyone is anxious to get their cards up and working - me included!!

I have a Broadcom NetXtreme BCM5750 Gigabit adapter built into my Dell Dimension 8400 motherboard. The Vendor ID is 14E4 and the Dev ID is 1677, as reported by Windows XP.

I've done everything as mentioned in the detailed post above (including modifying the plist to include this Vendor ID), but still cannot get my card to be recognized.

If anyone has any ideas - please let me know - it would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
- Al

I'm anxious just to get osx on the internet. I'm dual booting now so its easy for me to work on it now. I've tried every single post and nothing works for my 4306.
