Hello

I have Mac OS X86 installed on my computer with also Windows XP... The thing is, I read that it's not possible to connect Mac to internet with a Nvidia nForce ethernet controller? ... I have also a built-in ethernet controller Yukon, coz I'm using ASUS A8N SLI Premium motherboard

What can I do to have an internet connection while using Mac? Can someone please help me?

Thanks a lot!

There is a kext in 10.4.4 for Yukon, read the Hardware-Drivers section, someone is trying.

You should have a read of this thread - there seems to be quite an effort going on to support the yukon ethernet controllers.
