hi i tried to get my driver for my Broadcom 440x 10/100 i did the following.. I copied IONetworkingFamily.kext to

/System/Library/Extensions/

Then opened a terminal

And typed

sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext

sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/ IONetworkingFamily.kext

sudo kextload -v /System/Library/Extensions/ IONetworkingFamily.kext



Then pasted the

following into a Terminal:



sudo rm /System/Library/Extensions.mkext

[This forces the system to re-examine all of the drivers and rematch during the

next boot cycle.]



When I rebooted

I went into System Preferences => Network and it freezes there.ethernet doesnt work either. What am I doing wrong? Why is network freezing?



Thanx
