In Topic: 10.6.8 Retail on Dell Inspiron 580 MT (Core i3)

24 July 2011 - 12:55 AM

In case anyone comes back here looking for working NIC drivers after Lion upgrade..

I had upgraded from SL to LION and original BCM5701 drivers from this thread would fail to load.

after extensive searching..

found that the Dell 580 MT has a broadcom onboard NIC w/ Device id of 1691

BCM5722

replaced with this one, modified info.plist to show 1691 , reset permissions and worked on first try..

from SL

adding that the Dell 580 MT has a broadcom onboard NIC w/ Device id of 1691

original how-to guide had link for BCM5701 which worked thru SL 10.6.7
upgraded to lion and would fail to load kext on boot.
had tried fixing with kext utility to reset permissions which did not work.

replaced with this one, modified info.plist to show 1691 , reset oermissions and worked on first try..

spent whole day looking for this..

thanks again..
