I bought a $3 Tp-link, chip is RTL8139, I've downloaded IONetworkingFamily.kext and installed it with KextHelper b7.
But when rebooted, en0 states is still Unpluged, then i've checked the Cable connection, it's fine.

I though that maybe it's a NIC card issue, so i've changed one, which works fine under w2k/xp/Vista, but still not working...

Can anyone help?
Thanks...

This same issue happens with the Gigabyte P35-DS3 boards that have an RTL8139 NIC inside it.

The solution for us is to boot into Windows (XP or Vista), go to the Properties for your network card, select "Advanced", and there is a setting that is something like ""Wake on LAN after shutdown" that needs to be Enabled.
