I just gave the driver a try 'cause of those big-data-transfer-problems with hnak's intel1000e.
Good news first: it works well, transfer speed is very good - but i got a weird problem: safari always crashes!
I rechecked it with i1000e re-installed (checked kextstat that the correct driver is loaded) no safari crash - checked again with mausi-driver: safari crashed. Any other browser (firefox, chrome) did work...
I installed the driver on a yosemite 10.10.2 using "clover bootloader" on a Gigabyte H87 MB. Now I'd like to contribute to troubleshooting, but frankly I don't know how.
