I'm about to give up on searching for anything to make Intel 82566DC-2 ethernet work. This is really disappointing. Everything is now set up, except the Internet.

Does anyone have any ideas at all or heard of anything that even *may* work?

I really, really appreciate it. Thanks.

Hi, my mobo is Intel DP35DP, the integrated NIC is 82566DC Gigabit Ethernet Controller, and use this kext for intallation
http://www.imconvert...6MM.kext.tar.gz, after extract this, configure the Intel82566MM.kext/Contents/Info.plist file like this:

<key>OSBundleLibraries</key>
<dict>
<key>com.apple.iokit.IONetworkingFamily</key>
<string>1.6.1</string>
<key>com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily</key>
<string>2.5</string>
<key>com.apple.kpi.bsd</key>
<string>9.6.0</string>
<key>com.apple.kpi.iokit</key>
<string>9.6.0</string>
<key>com.apple.kpi.libkern</key>
<string>9.6.0</string>
<key>com.apple.kpi.mach</key>
<string>9.6.0</string>
</dict>
<key>OSBundleRequired</key>

with the kextstat we obtain the correct values for the parameters, then install the kext with kexthelper and thats all, good luck.

Okay, listen up, you at the back of the class.. ;)

Download the above archive and un-archive it. The desktop or your downloads folder are nice places to unarchive things.

Download and install Apple Xcode or Plist Editor Pro (google it)

Download and install kexthelper or OSX86Tools (google it)

Right click on the .kext file and click 'show package contents', it will open like a folder (which it is)

Open the info.plist inside, as described in the above post

Open Terminal and type kextstat - look for the kernel extensions mentioned in the description in the above post

Edit the plist accordingly to match the version numbers of the kexts you have installed - as described in the above post.

save..

Run kexthelper or OSX86Tools and install the kext, reboot.

Ok, now this is weird.

I have an Intel DG33BU board, running iATKOS 10.5.5. The above mod worked for me but System Profiler calls it my 'Airport'.

But I'll take what I can get!

Thanks!

Hello zhin76. Thanks to you, my ethernet works too. But about 4 months back, when I had first installed Leopard I had heard that there were no drivers for it. And no one expecting them to be available soon. How did you get them?
