In Topic: AppleIntelE1000e.kext for 10.8/10.7/10.6/10.5

Yesterday, 05:36 PM

Just to put this to rest i did the following:

Installed a fresh version of Yosemite on a fresh disk, then only connected to the NAS and transfered one single large file.
This works! It finishes.


But... Then i start to copy several files at the same time, large ones - then the network shuts down.

I tried with IntelE1000 all versions since 2.4 up to 3.10 - all the same.
I tried with Realtek 8111 - all the same.
I tried with USB 3.0 Network - All the same.
I tried with WiFi Dongle - All the same.

And finally i tried to disable on-board network card, same {censored} still - It seems the whole network stack dies when the card is under heavy load with several threads.

PS: It's not IPv6, it's completely disabled on OS X and on the NAS.

Well, I think that Yosemite's network stack is broken and causes all those problems when it gets under load. That's why I'm staying with Mavericks until they manage to fix the issue. As of now there is only one solution: get back to Mavericks!




After doing all the tests above and reading about everyone with a real Mac and Macbook having the same problems over at Apple forum, I believe you are completely right.

heh. Sometimes I think, sod it I'll just get a real mac - not that I don't have several, but to match the spec of the hackintosh, that's over £2K...


And what if the same problem still arises because it's actually a bug at a completely different level? After all, it's arising on two different network cards with drivers written by two different people here - and frankly there's more chance of a bugfix from these guys if it's something in their purview; submitting a bug report to Apple is like dropping something into a black hole. No information escapes...

Over at tonymac86 someone reports that it happens on real Mac's as well, but only if they are wired. WiFi seems to work just fine.

I actually bought a Realtek 8111E chipset network card, but it too shuts off if i transfer large filers form the NAS.


Going into sleep then waking the computer up again, seems to work, but it is SO annoying.

I'm also using the AppleIntelE1000e.kext at version 3.1.0 and network speeds have gone from +100MB/s on file transfers from/to the NAS to 31MB/s and if i try to benchmark the network speeds, the card hangs completely with kernel[0]: AppleIntelE1000e(Err): Detected Hardware Unit Hang.


Anyone know any solution to the issue?


Using latest OS X Yosemite by the way.
