  1. Forcedeth for M2NPV-VM

    Whoa, great news guys! Glad it worked! @thecoolcasanova: I've sent you a PM.
  2. I used Kext Helper to install the kext. Should I perform "diskutil repairpermissions /" command?
  3. Do you know the device & vendor ID of the SATA controller for M2NPV-VM? I've installed the SATA kext, but it doesn't seem to work .
  4. Ethernet Driver for Marvell 88E1116

    I got my NIC to work on a Asus M2NPV-VM mobo. For more information regarding this, please go to http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?s=&...st&p=878087.
  5. Forcedeth for M2NPV-VM

    I finally did it!! I got my Asus M2NPV-VM network interface to work. I use a combination of Forcedeth 0.3 Leopard kext (http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=12933) & Marvell 88E1116 Ethernet Controller kext (http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=73317). I used Kalyway 10.5.3 Intel/AMD release for my Mac. Here are the steps which I went through to make the damn thing to work. I downloaded the "forcedeth_0.3_leopard.zip" & "nForceEthernetController.kext.zip" kexts from the above mentioned site. Unpacked the content onto my HDD. I use the "forcedeth/build/Release/forcedeth.kext" & I added "0x026910DE" (under 'IOPCIPrimaryMatch') to both "Info.plist" on the kext file. I also did the same for "nForceEthernetController.kext". Started Kext Helper (http://www.cheetha.net/). Drag and dropped the "forcedeth.kext" to the application, typed in my password & clicked on 'Easy Install'. After running the application the card will be detected by the OS. After running the kext I rebooted my machine. Upon starting mid way, I was welcomed with a kernel panic (this is actually good). Restarted my Mac again & used '-x' switch to start in safemode. I deleted the "forcedeth.kext" file from the "/System/Library/Extensions" folder. I started Kext Helper again & dragged the "nForceEthernetController.kext" onto it & clicked 'Easy Install'. After installation, I shutdown my computer & used the power switch to completely power off the machine. Waited for 2-3 minutes (I made a sandwich in the meantime ) & started the computer back on. Whaddaya know? I got my ethernet up & running!! It's been a week since my ethernet started to work & I haven't had any lockups, kernel panic or any of those nasty stuff. Hopefully it's been helpfull & you can finally use your NIC for internet access.
