  1. My machine will start up after sleep, but no monitor. So the short answer is "No."
  2. I used this installer to get my wg311t working perfectly under 10.5.2. See attachment. AtherosAR5004G.zip
  3. I bought 2 of the Ultra modular power supplies from Tigerdirect. One was a 500 watt with green cables (I HATED it). The cables were huge and inflexible and a real PITA to put in the case. It also did not come with a plug for video cards. The second one I bought was the newer version but it was 750 watts and had everything I needed. The cables were flat and flexible and I love it. IT made for a nice install. Both were quiet though.
  4. Just an update to my previous post, I uninstalled the Orange Ware driver because my machine would not shut down (fans would still run). Now on reboot the card still works and it still shows up in ASP as a "third party wireless card."
  5. I was also having the same problems as most of us here with gettting my wireless card to work. I was using a D-Link DWL-G510 card under 10.4.10 that worked great. I upgraded to Leopard and it quit working. I tried the old kexts, editing Leopard's, etc... The closest I came was it was recognized, Airport was on, but it was lock up my system. Then I tried a WMP300N card from Linksys. This card's ID is included in Leopard's IO80211Family.kext, so I thought it may work natively. No luck there either. So out of frustration, I tried Orange Ware's 3.3 version of their driver found at http://www.orangeware.com/endusers/wirelessformac.html and on reboot my card worked great! Don't ask me why because their driver is PPC and for Atheros chipsets. Maybe one of you can figure it out. Just a note, The apple airport in the menubar works, but Orangeware's included wireless utility does not (error about intel macs).

    I cannot install kexts

    Added a password to my user and I can now install my .kexts. Thanks for the help.

    I cannot install kexts

    Thanks for the replies. I have set a password for the root account, but none as my account. I'll give that a try. I also have tried to the sudo su, but it basically tells me to go to hell. Other than this problem, Leo is working great.

    Can't install Leopard

    OK, maybe we're missing the problem here. Do you have one hard drive with two partitions or 2 hard drives? If you have one hard drive, which partition is Leo on (i.e. 0s1 or 0s2)? For those people out there having trouble with the Leo install, I had no success until I used Kalyway's "Make Leopard Boot Disk" disk to prepare the hard drive before installing. Also, maybe you haven't properly post patched the Leo install. I had the constant reboot problem until I re-patched my install.

    Can't install Leopard

    You need to make your leopard partition active. There are several good guides here on how to do it, including in BrazilMac's leopard guide. Switching back to SATA should work fine under Leo, but may be slow if you need a patch.

    I cannot install kexts

    Thanks for the reply, but it still doesn't work.

    Yes, change both SATA drives over to AHCI in Bios (I have 3 choices in BIOS, IDE, RAID, AHCI). Then try to boot.

    Can't install Leopard

    If you are installing using SATA hard drive, switch the drive to ACHI mode in the bios. I had this problem using 10.4.8, but not in Leopard. Using ACHI mode was faster under Leopard until I patched the ATA kexts.
  13. Hi all, When I try to install a kext in Leopard, it tells me I don't have permission. I have tried kexthelper and it tells me it failed to login as root. I tried the manual install with terminal and I get the same result. What do I have to do to get this working? Thanks.
  14. Same thing happened to me after I installed Leopard. I had the patch.sh configured wrong (i.e wrong path to the patch). As soon as I changed the path to find the leopard patch, it ran and did not give me any errors. I rebooted and viola! Leopard welcome screen with audio!
  15. For the NetGear WG311T I had to install the IO80211.kext from 10.4.6 to make it work. Search the forums for it and replace the 10.4.8 kext with it. Worked like a champ after that.
