In Topic: IntelMausiEthernet.kext for Intel onboard LAN

Today, 02:50 AM

Hi Mieze. Sorry to trouble you. I have a NC630T Ethernet card here which I'm trying to get IntelMausi to work with the card now i was wondering would you be able to add the support to the kext for 82571EB chipset or do i just the Device ID to IntelMausi using Xcode?

I'm sorry, but IntelMausiEthernet won't work with 82571/2/4 chips because I intentionally removed support for these chips as they are junk silicon which is full of nasty hardware bugs and makes driver programming a pain.

Newbie here. I had a hackintosh for two years, build from refurbished components, I used the Tonymacx86 method to install Yosemite, El Capitan and Sierra. The old motherboard crashed las month, and I replaced it with a similar one, slightly older. Ethernet refused to work. All attempts to get a working kext failed.

Specs are

Gigabyte fsb 1066 ga-945gzm-s2
Intel Core 2 Duo E8500
Nvidia GeForce 6200

Due to the Nvidia Graphics card I need to use npci=0x3000 flag to get it to boot. On the previous motherboard, this caused no issues with the lan connection.

I have aquired another lan card, RTL8139c, RehabMan on the Tonymacx86 board said to get the kext created by Mieze. I did, but it failed as well. I have downloaded the latest kext posted by Mieze, linked in this thread, found the kext file and pasted it into the installation pen drive. Failed. Reading this discussion, I see that she says that npci=0x3000 with cause issues with the lan kext. Perhaps this is why none of the lan cards do not work? In this case, I shall need a video card replacement. I am willing to cooperate and get logs and such, if I am showed where to find them, I have never face anything like this in the previous two hackintoshing years. I have only installed kexts using pkg files (the least mpkg) or copy/past into the Clover kext folder in the EFI partition, so I need to learn the other way to install them as well.

My driver doesn't support the RTL8139 but there used to be a native driver for this chip in Snow Leopard. Even the source code is available and, in case the binary doesn't work out of box, it should be possible to build this driver for newer versions of OS X which still support 32bit kernels.

I'm currently building a new development system with a Killer NIC and already bought an Asrock Z170 Gaming K4. Unfortunately with this board the system won't wakeup from sleep, although I spent the last 10 days trying to fix this issue but all my efforts have been in vain and I can't afford to waste more time. As proper sleep/wake support is crucial for me, I decided to give up on the Asrock board and get another one from a different manufacturer.


Now I'm looking for a socket 1151 board which should meet the following requirements:

  • Killer NIC
  • Proper wakeup from sleep with Sierra
  • Not too expensive.

Is there anybody out there who could recommend me a mainboard which meets these requirements?


Thanks in advance!

Hey Mieze,

does ur driver work with the Realtek RTL8118AS? Really hope so   :wacko:

Frankly, I don't know as there is no documentation for this chip available but Realtek claims that their Linux driver, on which my driver is based, supports it! So there might be a chance but you've got to test it yourself...

Ok, I'll get the log.
It's in the console right ?

Please see post #1 of this thread for instructions how to retrieve kernel logs.
