More than one weak ago I\'ve started writing driver for Realtek controllers. At this time I have some results, I've not tested all features, cause I have no such opportunity, but MacOS successfully communicate with WinXP system through my driver.
It works on RTL8169, RTL8168, RTL8110, RTL8111, RTL8100, RTL8101 chips and their modifications.
I have some driver programming skills under WinXP, but MacOS and IOKit are new things for me, so be careful when using my driver. You can freely load it and unload, but only once at one system boot (cause more loads may cause system crash, I\'m planning to fix it). Use sh scenarios for loading/unloading driver.
Now I\'m planing to add such features:
- Manual MTU control (now it fixed at 1500).
- Jumbo frame support.
- Wake on magic packet.
Thanks to the:
- author of Linux R1000 driver.
- NeoPheus for installer. Great job, thanks.
Share your knowledge so much as you can.
Compiled with XCode 2.4 on OSX 10.4.6 JaS Install DVD.
