ToH RC2 installed without any problem but internet connection too slow.
connected internet via onboard ethernet.

adsl (4/1Mbit connection) speed test results :
Windows Side: 420 kb/sn
Leopard Side: 3 kb/sn

have any idea?
thx.

edit: stupid me. i say 'connected internet via onboard ethernet.' but its wrong. actually connected internet via Realtek RTL 8139. And onboard ethernet works like a charm. Sorry every one. (i will changed topic title). so ignore all replys and go to http://forum.insanel...&...st&p=498700

Maybe the speedtest server was crappy....
There is absolutely no reason for it to be Leopard that slows you down...
THis is my result with a leopard install on a similar board:

Try this:

Replace the plugins in IONetwokingFamily.kext (current loepard version 1.6.0) with the plugins from Tiger version 1.5.1. Repair permissions. This worked for me.

This worked for me too, however when trying to run an app as super user (using sudo command in terminal), I get this error:

_CFGetHostUUIDString: unable to determine UUID for host. Error: 35

AAAwesome!!
I had slow connection too. And all the time I had the following in the Console:

RTL8139::receiverInterrupt
RTL8139::receiverInterrupt - not OK

I had download rate around 5KB/s and upload was fine.

I've been struggling with this since the end of October. Finally it's fixed. After an hour or so of experiments and research I did this:
get Tiger IONetworking.kext and put PCGenRTL8139Ethernet in plugins. And voila!!

Thank you for ideas.

Using the iATKOS 1.0 10.5.1 install I was shocked to have normal OS X issues that real mac users had. I discovered this solution myself, I had stepped back to using the Vanilla IONetworkingFamily.kext with no effect I then used the PCGenRTL8139.kext v1.2.0 and removed All plugins from IONetworkingFamily.kext save for AppleUSBEthernet.kext and added the 1.2.0 version in

sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extension/IONetworkingFamily.kext
sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extension/IONetworkingFamily.kext
sudo rm -R /System/Library/Extensions.mkext
sudo reboot


and I was back to my sooper fast speeds :)

Ok, Here seam to be where I thought I would have found the solution. I used MacDrive to copy the kext files over and now I can recognize the other PC's on my network However ny internet speed is very slow. 3k/s

Specs are below

I registered specifically to thank for this solution!

The only thing I did different was that when I was about to copy the driver from my "old" Tiger install, I didn't have that filename you mentioned (PCGenRTL8139Ethernet.kext) but had the one with the same name as Leopard's install (AppleRTL8139Ethernet.kext).

After copying the "same" file (Tiger version over Leopard version) I proceeded with the normal chmod'ing and everything worked perfectly after the reboot!

This was really something that was freaking me out after the upgrade! I'm pretty comfortable with the shell and the "nitty-gritty" of network configurations (linux background here) but I've never seen anything like this happen! Relating this problem with a driver problem was the last thing on my mind, and I never thought I'd encounter driver problems like this on OSX... :)


Oh well...
Again thank you so much for all you guys' help! Saved the day! :)


Cheers,
~Levi F.

Tried this, but it still says "cable unplugged".

I read the readme in the kext file (btw coming from a Linux and Windows background I do not understand the humour of having files which are not files actually but folders (zipped or something?), but anyway)... I used kextload and it says the RTLGEN kext is already loaded. Still no luck. Any suggestions? Tried a RTL8169, different problems, but still no network. Why??
