Hi all. Not to take this in a different direction, but I have a problem other then networking on a Latitude D800.
Is anyone else having sound issues? Only half of the sounds work. No sound when playing video, just the 'beeps n bells' are working. Like midi-sounds or something.

I'm running 10.4.7, updated from a JaS 10.4.6 install.
I'd list the built-in audio, but it's not listed under System Profile, like it's not fully detected.

Thanks,
Moogly

Hello all, any advice would be helpful on this topic.. I have installed the Jas 10.4.8 OSx on my Dell Latitude D420. Everything is working pretty well except networking. I can live without ethernet or wireless but not both. I followed the instructions below and here is where I get into an issue, at this step

kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions <-- I get the follwoing system response "can not create bundle"

I rolled back to the original file that came as part of the Jas installed Disc (I had saved a copy) and rebooted with the -f -v flags to watch the booting process and saw the same error during the boot process "can not create bundle" after the same command was being issued by the boot process.

I even tried turning off my wireless card in the BIOS, same issue. Any help would be appreciated... an unnetworked computer with any OS is basically useless now a days.

I have a dual boot partition and can go back and forth from OSx and XP, so I am not crippled at work.

help.

Hello Together,

i have found a Solution that works for my Dell D800 Broadcom Card (Model 570x, Gigabit Integrated Controller, Vendor 14E4,Device 165D)
My System is an patched MacOS 10.4.5.

What have I done:

1. I Found a patched Driver somewhere here in the Board (Sorry, I have read so many threads, that I have forgotten the Name of the real publisher)
2. This Driver ist attended to this Post. I hope the patcher will allow this
3. Copy this Driver File to the Mac Desktop
4. Open Finder and navigate to System/Library/Extensions
5. Find the IONetworkingFamily.kext and copy it also to your Desktop
6. Mark it with the right Mousebutton and select "Show Package Content" or so.
-- Sorry I'm using a German Language OSX and so i don't know the real English Button Names. I think you will be able to find the correct ones ;-) --
7. Move in the opend KEXT to Contents and then to PlugIns
8. Find AppleBCM5701Ethernet.kext and copy it to Desktop
-- The Copy to Desktop Actions are neccesary, otherwhile you could not edit the KEXT Files --
9. Mark the AppleBCM5701Ethernet.kext with right Mouseclick and choose "Show Package Content" or so, like above
10. Navigate to Contents - MacOS
11. There You will find a File called AppleBCM5701Ethernet
12. Overwrite/ Replace this File with the patched one from your Desktop
13. During all these Steps it is possible that you have to Identify with your Root Passwort. Do so and you are able to replace the Files
14. At this time you have placed the modified Driver in the AppleBCM5701Ethernet.kext ON YOUR DESKTOP
15. Now its time to complete the IONetworkingFamily.kext on YOUR DESKTOP
16. Therefore mark the in Step 5 copied File on Desktop with right MB and select "Show Package Content" or so
17. In the opend Package navigate to Contents-PlugIns
18. Copy your modified AppleBCM5701Ethernet (Step 14) from Desktop to this package. Replace the old One
19. After closing you got a modified IONetworkingFamily.kext on the Desktop
20. Now you have to copy this File to your System/Library/Extension Folder.
21. Navigate there with Finder and replace the existing one with the modified one from Desktop
22. The KEXT is now replaced an you have to do some jobs in the Terminal
23. Open Terminal and execute the following Commands:
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
24. Now you have to do a Reboot.
25. The Network should now work
26. At my System an other Error occured.After the second Reboot OSX showed that the patched File was not correct loaded. The Network was again greyed out :-(((
27. To handle this problem, open the DiskManagement Tool form MAC OSX.
38. Choosee your Systempartition and select the Opinion to repair the Acces Rights on this Volume.
39. After the next reboot the System worked fine and the Network Card was working

I hope this Workarround works also for your System. My special thanks goes to the real Patcher of the Driver. Sorry that I have forgotten his Name. Without his patching my Network would never come to live....

I'm seeing the same thing after following this, with 10.4.10

Did you get anywhere with it?

I'm going to try and work on this over the next couple of days, but I don't really expect to get very far with it :D

I did see some slightly different behaviour when I left the mac address and manually set the IP & subnet, in that I was able to get google and a couple of other sites in safari, however the machine hardlocked when I tried to get the update list..

Haven't had a chance to look at it since.

I am a little confused about the howto.
The attached file has the image of a kext-file, which, as far as I understand the system so far, have to be put in /System/Library/Extensions. But the howto says in this file, a file should be moved inside another already existing file...wouldnt it be easier to use this file insted which seams to be already modified?
And second, the file, which should be copied and the one which should be replaced, have different icons...Am I doing something wrong?

The pre-modified file may not match what you need. It's for a specific set of ID's.

Any new around BCM 57xx stability problems? I had it in 10.4.8 with the kext working without mac address so in a switched network couldn't manage to browse.

Any improvements with uphunck 10.4.9 1.4r3?

Everything else goes fast and smooth

Hi,

sorry, but what is this patch you speak of, and how do you rebuild the extensions cache?

I tried using:

sudo rm /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache
sudo kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache

but was informed that no such file or directory existed..

I looked in the finder for this file and it was not there. Under library there was a 'extensions'directory and a 'extensions.mkext'.....

So where is the cahe that I need to rebuild???

I have followed the 'appleBCM5701Ethernet.kext -add your own vendor/ID method'

Please, please help...
Leopard runs great and I just need my net connection to completely remove vista and windoze from my life!!!!

I have a Latitude D820 with Leopard and all I get is "Cable Unplugged" for built in Ethernet. I attempted to install the patch listed on the first post and it killed Leopard dead on my D820, I had to rebuild (for lack of skills to uninstall patch).

If there is a fix in the works for Leopard that would be excellent!

Hey, just wanted to let everyone know how I fixed my problem.

I downloaded the file in this thread. I tried all the different things, NOTHING worked. Then I realized INSIDE the Broadcom Kext was the duplicate kext file. So extracted that one from the first kext. After that, everything worked.

Thank you so much for the wonderful details. I was able to get my Dell D600 running OS X 10.4.8 and now the wired ethernet is working. I had already gotten the wireless working.

Thanks so much.

Sorry, I'm a little confused, so many files, so many threads.

Which file exactly are you referring to?

I think I have 3 or more, all of which I've patched to varying degrees of sucess. I would decompile them, but it's hard to know which is which - and I would rather start with the genuine original article.

Sounds to me like you just accidentially copied a directory inside a directory, BTW.
