This was the only kext that worked for me, thank you very much!

I do have to pass "cpus=1" as a boot option though, still better than no internet though.

Mac OS X (10.5.2) Leo4allv3
Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 (rev2.0)

Yey! I nearly gave up and went out to get a pci card but then I found this.
It works fine here, no probs at all. Been downloading loads of stuff and surfing the net for a couple of days now.
I didn't do anything special, just installed it, rebooted and connection agogo. :(

any update on a stable Leopard version?
I was able to get an IP and connect without issue in Leopard and an AMD dual core, but the machine will lock up if I try to do anything too strenuous (sometimes even loading a large webpage)

In the meantime, do I need to pass cpu=1? (where can I do that? sorry, I am new to this)

Thanks

....cpus=1....


hit f8 while booting....and enter "cpus=1"....or edit your boot.plist...this way u boot with one cpu....however our goal should be to work on 2 cpus :-)

Is it worth buying a WG111V3 because i am currently using a rtl8139 and it is so unstable it is stupid.

I am running TOH leopard upgraded to 10.5.2 using kalyways combo update, and it is all working quite nicely.

I have a Evga 680i board.

Thanks

Great work on the nforce driver!
I have an Asus p5n32-e li plus MB 680i chipset
Running Leo4all3
Everything runs perfect on this board (with a little help of course)

I used your original unplug method to get the ethernet ports working

I recently had a problem with my HD and so had to reinstall leo -I installed exactly the way as before-
Now I cannot get the ethernet working

I download the file again from insanelymac
I open terminal and followed instruction
type sudo -s
enter password
after first command:
_I get the message that "no such extension exists" several times

I have tried all night long and everything that I can think of to get it running agian

It seems like the download from insanelymac has changed somehow and is missing a file or something.

Do you have any ideas?

Thanks again for the hard work

I'M RUNNING XP AGAIN**

Nevermind

Confirmed 100% working with leo4all3 and kallaway 10.5.2 releases.

I added a password for the administrator account
Downloaded the file from original entry
Dropped file into "kexthelper B7" utility (download from google)
Rebooted, unplugged powercable
****When Leopard was loading i pressed F8 and typed -f to load
Ethernet definately working

Asus p5n32-e sli plus


Thanks for all the hard work!!!!

The ethernet driver works great on my EVGA 680i board with the exception of occasional lockups. I am running iATKOS v1r3. Overall, I have had slim to no problems with the system other than it being finicky with external USB drives and not liking high download rates. If I'm downloading at more than 20 kb/s and browsing, it generally locks up sooner or later. If this could get fixed in the forthcoming Leopard driver, my hackintosh will be perfect.

everyone confirms that the driver is working like a charm.....with cpu=1 though.....

is there any work done by someone on making this work with 2 cores...from my side i would pay a few bucks via paypal just to get a dualcore driver working......cpu=1 really sucks :-)

It would be really nice to have one working with 2 cores, it must be possible.

I am running a wireless card for now but transfer speeds are soo slow!!!!

HOW TO INSTALL:- Place the kext file on your desktop- Start "Terminal" and type the following commands:- "sudo -s"- Type you password.- "cp -R ~/desktop/nForceEthernetController.kext /system/library/extensions/"- "chmod -R 755 /system/library/extensions/nForceEthernetController.kext- "chown -R root:wheel /system/library/extensions/nForceEthernetController.kext"- "rm -f /system/library/extensions.*"- "diskutil repairpermissions /"- "exit"- Close "Terminal"- Shutdown the computer and take the power cord off (IMPORTANT!)- Wait 30 secs. and turn it back on (plug the power cord back in first tongue.gif )Hopefully it will come back up with your ethernet controller working!

i follow the instruction but i got some error "System extension cannot be used" the system extensions "/system/library/extensions/nForceEthernetController.kext" was installed improperly and cannot be used. Please try reinstalling it, or contact the product vendor for an update.i already reinstalle but i got same..any solution?thanks :thumbsup_anim:

I got my EVGA 680i ethernet working using this method. I am running Kalyway 10.5.2.

The only problem is that each time I turn off my computer, I have to unplug the power cable and boot with "-v -f" for it to work in OS X.
