  1. Network Solution for Leopard

    Ok, I just returned my Trendnet Adapter and I went to Best Buy and bought the Apple USB Ethernet Adapter. I am getting the same problem. So I think this has to do with the USB. I installed it, nothing happened, loaded kexts, then rebooted, it worked. Got a system freeze when I opened iTunes, so I restarted and on reboot, my kexts were not loading anymore and my USB adapter was not being recognized in the System Profile. Do I need a new USB driver? If I do, which one?

  3. IO80211FAMILy.kext

    I already did that... XD I understood the labeling part, its just that its curious to see that the Kalyway package would include that kext with a red label. Any thoughts on this?
  4. I could really use some help man, its really weird that it was working fine for a while and it would just all of a sudden stop working.
  5. IO80211FAMILy.kext

    this is a good question. It is red for me too, I read somewhere though that you had to remove it for some networking features to work... I did. I dont use wireless so I guess itll be alright.
  6. Network Solution for Leopard

    Hello, I bought a Trendnet USB to Ethernet Adapter like some here in this thread have, its based on the Asix AX88772 chipset. I got it to work for a day or two, but now its not working anymore. What kind of weird behavior is this? Here is the initial problem. I have the Kalyway 10.5.2 and for some reason it didnt include the AppleUSBEthernet kext, so I downloaded it and dragged and dropped it to the Extensions folder, went to Terminal and did the following(I want to include the steps taken, maybe I did something wrong); sudo chmod -R 755 AppleUSBEthernet.kext <-- press enter sudo chown -R root:wheel AppleUSBEthernet.kext <-- press enter It fixed the permissions and then I was able to kextload from the Terminal; sudo kextload -v /System/Library/Extensions/AppleUSBEthernet.kext When I restart, my System Profile doesnt have the AppleUSBEthernet kext on the Extensions list. I have to load it. Could this be why my adapter is not working? How do I get the kext to load on boot? Also note that in the USB devices of the System Profile, it doesnt show the USB to Ethernet Adapter, so apparently its not even recognizing it, I dont know if this has to do with the AppleUSBEthernet not loading or some other conflict. ****EDIT UPDATE***** Ok, I have been doing some more research and I found out that my kext isnt loading because my Adapter is not being recognized, hence, the kext doesnt boot. So what is going on then? Could there be USB conflicts? I also installed the USBAx8817x.kext but the Vendor and Product ID do not match mine in the Info.plist, which is odd, I dont know. Any help would be appreciated!!!
  7. usb problems

    Hey, I am having similar problems. I am using a USB to Ethernet adapter and I am more than sure i have the right kext installed, but when I check the System Profile, it doesnt recognize my USB device as being plugged in. So I thought it might be an issue with the actual adapter driver, but now im thinking I just have USB issues. If anyone can help, I would appreciate it too. Check out my system specs WhatTheHeck and see if we have a similar rig or something; C2D E6600 MSI P6N SLI Platinum (sound working, ethernet not working) BFG 8800 GTX (video card working) Raptor 74gb X 2 Raid 0 (WinXP OS HDs) Maxtor IDE 40GB (Mac OS X HD, found it laying around and used it) WD 500 GB Seagate 1 TB (just installed and working) Windows XP Pro Kalyway Leopard 10.5.2 **** EDIT ***** I think I should also mention that I have my keyboard and mouse plugged in via USB and they are working as they should be, I dont know if this would discard my USB theory as to why my stuff is not working. Hey WhatThe Heck... does any of your USB devices stay on for a while or do they all shut down after a while?
  8. ****Update**** I went to System Info(I forgot what its called, it says all the info about the computer specs), I went to Extensions and I did not find the AppleUSBEthernet nore the AppleUSBGigbEthernet on the list. Come to mention it, it was missing ALOT of extensions, I shouldve checked to see if my video card drivers showed up, but I forgot, ill check it later. Should the kext appear here? What exactly is this space reserverd for and why dont all the Kext packages?
  9. First of all, system specs: C2D E6600 MSI P6N SLI Platinum (sound working, ethernet not working) BFG 8800 GTX (video card working) Raptor 74gb X 2 Raid 0 (WinXP OS HDs) Maxtor IDE 40GB (Mac OS X HD, found it laying around and used it) WD 500 GB Seagate 1 TB (just installed and working) Windows XP Pro Kalyway Leopard 10.5.2 I really dont understand whats going on... I bought a ASIX AX88772 USB 2.0 to Ethernet Adapter because I couldnt get my onboard ethernet adapter to work(which is a Realtek 8211BL btw). I installed it but it didnt work. After some research, I finally found out how to install it. The kext titled "AppleUSBEthernet.kext" was supposed to be available for Leopard to allow Mac Air to recognize the more popular USB to Ethernet adapters, but the Kalyway package did not include that kext. The adapter would not even show up in the available USB devices while on Mac. It works fine on windows, im currently using it right now. So I search the internet and found the AppleUSBEthernet kext and installed it and repaired persmissions. I rebooted my Mac OS and the USB Ethernet Adapter was finally being recognized, went to network settings and Mac instantly set up my connection. Everything was going fine, navigated the internet, I got onto Mac a few more times the following day or two and everything was working fine. Now, all of a sudden, Mac has stopped recognizing my USB adapter. It doesnt even show up in the USB devices. Things I did since then that might have affected the OS; 1.) Installed a new 1 TB Hard Drive, formatted it on WinXP and copied some files onto it. 2.) Installed an application on WinXP that allows me to view the HD I have Mac installed on. The application is called MacDrive 7.0.10. The application worked fine, I was able to see my Mac drive and get into it and copy files over to WinXP. Logic tells me that if my Mac OS is affected, maybe the application I installed, which has something to do with Mac, did something, anything, to mess with my kext files or whatever, I dont know. What could be going on? Anyone have any clue? I want to ask before I go ahead and re-install Kalyway.
  10. Triple Booting Complications -

    I had this exact same problem as you. But my hardware config differs so I dont know how much my solution can help you. What happened with me is that I had my motherboard set the Sata 0 and Sata 1 ports to Raid and my Raid array was set as the primary boot device. So when i would load the Kalyway, it gave me that error. All I did was switch the IDE {censored} HD I was going to use to boot Mac to the primary boot device, and it ended up working without a hitch. I noticed you didnt mention anything about Raid so just check your BIOS just in case. Hope I helped.
  11. I am trully sorry for the noobery that is my new thread, but I would really appreciate some help. I have never seen a driver in my life, let alone coded one, and while I think it would be fun to learn, I am a bit overwhealmed here. I just got my Kalyway up and running and my sound and vid are working fine, which is the most important thing. Here are my specs; C2D E6600 2GB DDR2 800 Some crappy 80GB IDE Maxtor I found laying around I decided to test my Mac installation on BFG 8800 GTX MSI P6N SLI Platinum So there you have it. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...bSLI%2bPLATINUM Newegg says my LAN Chipset is Realtek 8211BL. I havent really found a lot of info on this particular chipset. I did find this thread; http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...mp;#entry778904 But I have to be honest with you guys, I have no clue what the guy is talking about or how to go about installing that driver. I am understanding only bits and pieces, the one part where he writes "sudo kextload -v /System/Library/Extensions/forcedeth.kext", I am guessing that goes in the terminal, I think. But I really dont understand how to get to that point. I ask for someone here with experience in this to please help me out and explain to me in noob terms how to install that solution in the thread I linked. If you have any better solution for me, I would appreacite it greatly. Thank you very much for you time and I trully appreciate any help given. Have a good one.
