Ethernet "shorts out" after 10 mins?

04 April 2012 - 03:26 PM

I recently got my nForce ethernet card to work on iATKOS L2 (I copied IONetworkingFamily.kext and nForceLAN.kext from an S3 install and patched with Kext Utility). Let me explain: before, web pages wouldn't load but in System Prefs it'd tell me that I was connected, and it even gave me my LAN IP ( but it wouldn't let me connect to the router settings site, keep in mind that iATKOS L2 doesn't even advertise to have an nForce ethernet driver in the first place-- and it was really frustrating. So you can imagine how annoying it was to have the network stop working randomly (by stop working I mean it wouldn't load any web sites but it still said I was connected in System Prefs).

Anyone else having the same problem?

tl;dr: my nForce ethernet driver stopped connecting to the internet after a short amount of time while still telling me I was connected.

[SOLVED] nForce ethernet on iATKOS L2

I recently installed iATKOS L2 on my Acer Aspire X1700, and so far everything is working well (graphics, USB, drives, etc.) except for LAN and sound (VoodooHDA was causing kernel panics, so I reinstalled with only Apple's and it failed). I have an NVIDIA nForce ethernet card, and it was supported in Snow Leo (iATKOS S3 v2), but in Lion, there appears to be an NVEthernet driver installed already, but it isn't working properly. Is this driver available?

SOLUTION: Replace Apple's nvenet.kext (inside IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns) with nForceLAN.kext. It still stops working after a little while, forcing me to reboot or reload the driver, and kernel panics frequently.
