    rp_pppoe OSX port

    Hi folks I've brougth back to MacOS the rp_pppoe utilities to bring pppoe over other interface such tun/tap device ... could be helpfull because PPPoE.PPP (kernel plugin) seems to work only on true ethernet interface such as en0 can be found here http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php...002tzmpdadch4ph it's my old thread about speedtouch port, but I've now included a pack to get PPPoE working using this driver using the pppoe (lac) from rp_pppoe the package also include a pppoe-server (lns) if you want to set your own LNS ;-) but untested now enjoy

    Broadcom 4315 Not Working

    Hi I've got the same board and the same issue on my Acer Emachine 525, I've patched my DSDT with subsystem-vendor-Id 106b and subsystem-ID e01b to get the board recognized in the IO tree and be seen in the system profiler as a broadcom. The AppleAirPortBrcm4311.kext is correctly loader but without any messages. But the light on the special suspend key for my broadcom 14e4:4315 never switch on and the board isn't recognized by airport tools it seems the board is asleep and the driver doesn't wake it up I've try the above patch without any success I'm running on vanilla SL 10.6.4 any suggestion ?? kind regards

    hi -a stand for asynchronous mode which is mandatory to run pppoa3 OSX due to a lack of N_HDLC support in OSX (tiger) pppd needed for synchronous support. It neither work in PPPOE mode because the PPPOE OSX plugin which seems to running kernel mode doesn't handle other devices than true ethernet device -ethX- (I cannot make it work with a tun/tap support in OSX) while those other mode are reported to be working on Linux and *BSD For the second Question regarding your resolvers check this lrwxr-xr-x 1 root wheel 20 Feb 14 2008 /etc/resolv.conf -> /var/run/resolv.conf this is my outpout when my connexion is up ... the var /var/run/resolv.conf is created by pppd You can also check for new binaries and source code on the first post in this thread :-) availlable now cheers f/c

    Hi great this is working ... I had the same problem before as I mentioned earlier (half of the speed). The speed issue is comming from an outdated firmware ... One day for some unknown reason it didn't work anymore for me on Tiger while it was still working with linux on the same hardware. After double checking the code and performing a lot of debug it wasn't working anymore. It took me a long time to understand it was comming from the firmware - in fact after changing it as the last hope solution - and it work again but this time with full speed so use the url provided above. The page is containing a plenty of different firmware that you can try - this will surely fix your speed issue Otherwise great news, I will post soon new binaries with link control (re)enabled ... this will help those who have sync problems - some line sync up state are followed by a down and up state that the current binary isn't able to handle ... cheers f/c

    Hi if your modems led are fix green it,s doesn't seem to be so bad ... meaning it have found the modem and the dsl connection check the log file (if they exist) ... in /var/log/pppoa3.log and /var/log/ppp/ppp.log to check what is not working ... I forgot to mention in the first thread if you're using sudo .. the /etc/sudoers should contain something like this ALL ALL= NOPASSWD: /your/pppoa3/path/pppoa3 -a -vci 35 -vpi 8 -f /var/log/pppoa3.log, beware sudo is very sensible otherwise post your log files ... I will check kind regards F/c

    Hi, just found how to get Full speed ... get rid of your old firmware and update with release "Firmware info (CRC:0x94a45435, Size:526187, Checked: Yes, 1.3.3 - GNU/Linux - Win32)" in fact 1.3.4 found interesting info here http://speedtouch.hysplace.co.uk/firmware.htm http://linux-usb.sourceforge.org/SpeedTouch/howto.html can't find the exact link for the source package I have used, sorry thanks for update and feedback ... some download only complaints ... feel free to tell it works ;-) Regards f/c modem_run.zip pppoa3.zip mgmt.o.gz

    hi Info BLOCK4 : 512 bytes downloaded : OKInfo Modem reference : Info [monitoring report] ADSL link stays stable (down) it don't get your mac @ modem reference should show your modem mac address ... and it report a line down check your modem light which take a while to become green or maybe a usb issue ...try to change you IOUSBFamily.kext or try to change your computer USB settings (bios) or use another USB Bus ... I Know there's some strange and different behaviour depending on the USB hardware. The binaries are compiled for tiger ... modem run hang on leo even if it loads correctly the firmware... so because until it doesn't find the adsl line it continues to run .... so killall or kill -9 seems to be normal I will post soon a packaged source and new binaries to fix the little leo issue found in previous threads regards F/c

    Hi ... just to confirm the binaries provided previously are working with Leo ( I just recently upgraded to kalyway leo 1.5.1 and 10.5.3 ) even if modem_run output ugly message about fork()ing and a generate a core dump it still work and pppoa3 work even better than with Tiger ;-)

    hi I Know there's some special functions for release 4 modems could you post your pppoa3 log file /var/log/pppoa3.log and /Library/Logs/CrashReporter/pppoa3.crash.log be sure to run something like this pppoa3 -a -p -c -v 3 -vci 35 -vpi 8 -f /var/log/pppoa3.log You should now be able to see ppp and atm packets when interractively typing from the command prompt The modem is not detected using the control panel nor the ppp connexion even when connected but the ifconfig command should produce an output like this .... ppp0: flags=8051<UP,POINTOPOINT,RUNNING,MULTICAST> mtu 1492 inet 84.97.223.12 --> 84.97.223.31 netmask 0xff000000 cheers Fc
