#2484391 IntelMausiEthernet.kext for Intel onboard LAN

Posted by Mieze on 24 August 2017 - 02:17 PM

Still would like to understand how Thinkcentre M73 with Realtek driver does NOT behave this way...First of all, when the system is going to reboot or shutdown the driver releases control of the NIC. What happens after that, is beyond control of the driver. Second, Intel onboard NICs are different than other NICs because they are tightly coupled with the chipset's management engine (ME) which means that the ME takes control of the NIC when the driver releases it. Mieze

#2450712 IntelMausiEthernet.kext for Intel onboard LAN

Posted by Mieze on 24 June 2017 - 05:24 PM

Aren't situations like that supposed to be handled by classes like IOMapper, IOMemoryDescriptor, IOBufferMemoryDescriptor, IODMACommand, etc. which can use an IOMMU or DART (if one exists) for DMA address translation? https://developer.ap...d/TP0000019-SW3Sure, it's possible to write a driver which supports 32bit-devices using these classes but it requires a different approach and adds another level of complexity to the driver which isn't required for PCIe at all and not to forget, the most important question: how many users are still using PCI cards as PCIe replacements are dirt cheap? Mieze Hi Miezi, i have a problem with new High Sierra, DP2, because not work good internet, intermittent signal. I have IntelMausiEthernet work very fine on 10.12.6, but in 10.13 DP2 not work good. First Beta is good, but now, im not sure what to do... You can help me, please?  EDIT: Artur-PT help me with this issue, in Portuguese forum, so im fixed that deleting the other fo...

I have PCI LAN card with ID=0x12298086.Is it possible the kext will work with it?Sorry, but PCI devices aren't supported at all because of the lack of support for 64bit DMA operations. Mieze

As there haven't been any bug reports for version 2.3.0d0, I decided to make this version the new official release version 2.3.0 and updated the prebuilt binary in the download section. Mieze  :cat:

I compiled the kext using xcode 6.2 in Mavericks. I had a one compilation error that I solved quickly. The only doubt I have is, how can I have the Release version instead of the Debug one. From the "Products" menu select "Archive". After that, select the built driver archive in the Organizer window which appears and click "Export" to save the release build somewhere, e.g. on the Desktop. In this folder you'll find a directory hierarchy with the release version of the driver in it. Mieze

#2437871 Apple unveils "macOS High Sierra"

Posted by Mieze on 07 June 2017 - 05:01 PM

I wonder what their marketing guys have been smoking when they decided to call their next OS macOS High Sierra? Will we see macOS Dope or macOS Crack next year? I think they should have stayed with the cat names. macOS Maine Coon, for example, is still available and sounds far better than "High Sierra"! By the way, there are so many names of cat races available... Mieze  :cat:

#2427780 Solution for Qualcomm Atheros AR816x, AR817x and Killer E220x

Posted by Mieze on 20 May 2017 - 02:51 AM

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 NICProper wakeup from sleep with SierraNot too expensive.Is there anybody out there who could recommend me a mainboard which meets these requirements? Thanks in advance! Mieze  :cat:

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. Mieze

#2415767 Driver for Realtek's RTL810x Fast Ethernet Series

Posted by Mieze on 01 May 2017 - 09:31 PM

@jalves: I've checked the driver's code again and found no evidence for a driver bug. I don't have hardware to test myself but as sleep/wake and link change detection are basic functions of a driver which have been thoroughly tested, it's hard to imagine a scenario in which a driver bug causing this behavior wouldn't have been found much earlier. That's why I'm not willing to believe in a driver bug until some user with the same chip confirms this issue. Please check your BIOS settings and make sure that network boot, the UEFI network stack as well as any LAN related power management functions are disabled (in particular if there is any function to put the NIC into a low power state when the cable is disconnected).  Mieze

#2405706 IntelMausiEthernet.kext for Intel onboard LAN

Posted by Mieze on 16 April 2017 - 09:48 PM

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! Mieze  :cat: Attached Files  IntelMausiEthernet-V2.3.0d0.zip 73.92KB 132 downloads

#2403483 IntelMausiEthernet.kext for Intel onboard LAN

Posted by Mieze on 13 April 2017 - 12:07 AM

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...

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! Mieze  :cat:

Hmmm, more bad news for Apple hardware users...it's a pity.Well, at least the fact that Apple machines are affected too is good news because it means that they will have to fix it.  :P Mieze
