10.12.4 has some new features that can cause trouble with your build. One is that you need a newer copy of Clover to boot with (I used r4049). The other is that I had a lot of trouble with Ethernet drivers that had worked fine with 10.12.3.

Fortunately though, I was on insanelymac, and Mieze had posted a new version of his IntelMausi Ethernet driver, and it worked!!

Version is: IntelMausiEthernet-V2.3.0d0      


Congratulations for fixing the issue but I can definitely rule out, that it was the new driver version which solved the problem. Neither Apple changed the driver interface in 10.12.4, nor did I change support for the I218 in the new version and I can confirm that version 2.2.1 is working perfectly with the I218. Version 2.3.0d0 of IntelMausiEthernet only adds support for Kabylake and jumbo frames, that's all. You probably had a messed up system (system caches, network configuration or something like that) which has been fixed by the installation procedure.

After receiving positive feedback from crashmaster4999 (Thank you for your priceless support!) who ran first tests, I just wanted to give you a chance to participate in testing. Besides jumbo frame support, I also added initial support for the new I219 chips found on Kabylake boards. Source code can be found on GitHub.


In case you experience any problems, please report back with kernel logs showing the issue.


Good luck!

I really ignore wich is the difference between development or official.

Don't take it personal but I really hate ignorance as it's stealing my time, in particular when users are asking for help without having their homework done. Development versions are only for testing, they still contain bugs which have been resolved in the official release and it's really wasted time to deal with things over and over again. I'm spending my spare time in order to update and support the driver but I might rethink my commitment to the project in case I get tired because of the lack of cooperation from users.


On I217V, Asrock MB:


Latest stable version (2.2.0) loses network after some sleep/wakeup cycles. I can recover connectivity by disabling/reenabling the interface in Network Prefs, but doing it 3 times a day hurts.


Version 2.1.0d3 doesn't suffer from this, but network goes down and autorecovers under high transfer load. Even after applying the SSDT patch.


In the end, I've downgraded to 2.1.0d3 as I find it less obstructive for daily usage. I haven't tested versions between 2.1.0d3 and 2.2.0


Have you tried to disable WoL in System Preferences -> Network? You might also want to select the medium manually (one without EEE) as it seems to help sometimes.


By the way, version 2.1.0d3 suffers from data corruption when the link gets lost.


In case you want further assistance, please send me your kernel logs showing one of these incidents.

PS: I'm working on an update for the driver to support Kabylake and maybe also to add support for jumbo frames.

Hi, I get Kernel Panic. Shutdown and restart. In the Apple log appear:




Do you have experience with this? can you recommend me other version?


Sierra 10.12.4

Maximus Hero VIII

IntelMausiEthernet.kext Version March 21


Thank you.

First of all, why are you using a development version instead of the official release?


Second, kernel panics are usually the result of a messed up system, at least I haven't seen a reported kernel panic which could be tracked down to a driver bug for the last 2 years so that it's unlikely that there is a problem with the driver. Try to reset system caches, in case it doesn't help you might want to restore to a known working state from a Time Machine backup or reinstall.

As test results have been quite promising, at least here hasn't been any bug report :) , I decided to push the source code to GitHub and also updated the prebuilt binary in the download section.


Have fun!
