  1. Broadcom 570x and 575x

    This appears to be an active forum on BCM 57xx support. Any suggestions appreciated. I'm trying to get a bcm5787A (devid: 1693) ethernet controller on an acer extensa 5620 laptop to work.
  2. Broadcom 570x and 575x

    luv2rip, thanks for your reply. I've tried to find "BCM57* and *IO*Home*Network* kexts" on Kalyways Leopard 10.5.1, with no success. Any further hints/assistance is appreciated- can you extract??? I've also tried to install Kalyway- but seems to crash on X3100 video (which the laptop has). Any assistance appreciated...
  3. Broadcom 570x and 575x

    Looking for Broadcomm BCM5787A Gigabit Ethernet driver (devid: 0x1693). I'm very far into installing IATKOS 1.0 r2 onto Acer Extensa 5620 laptop- getting ethernet running is last critical step. Any help would be appreciated. I've tried the following but no success: - used Broadcom Ethernet kext (AppleBCM5751Ethernet.kext.zip) - Drop you new .kext file ( driver ) in extensions then delete your .kextcache and .mkext - open terminal, sudo chown -R root:wheel /system/library/extensions
 sudo chmod -R 755 /system/library/extensions - then repair permissions. any help is appreciated.
