  1. I'm just wondering if anyone has tried this and if the dell post installer would still work on it. I'm kind of a n00b at this and barely got it working with the Leopard iPC 10.5.6 install Thanks! -Shawn
  2. Anyone else getting these errors when trying to install? I have a Dell 9400 running OSX 10.5.4. Error: "Parallels Desktop can be installed only on systems supporting hardware virtualization." I'm assuming it's using instruction sets not available on my CPU but just wondering if anyone else is experiencing this. Thanks! -Shawn Only thing found on the internet is this http://forums.msiwind.net/viewtopic.php?f=...p;t=5407#p57673
  3. Broadcom 440x Problem

    I ended up going to Microcenter and getting the D-Link DUB-E100 USB ethernet device for $30. Downloaded WORKING drivers, not off of their site, but off of http://www.sustworks.com/site/news_usb_ethernet.html (linked to from a few other threads on here). No problem anymore -Shawn
  4. I've posted a few other places but since Sonotone has a 9400 and he wrote the installation package I was wondering if anyone else on here with the 9400 is experience issues with dropping on the 440x Broadcom LAN card? I doubt but figured I would ask in case Sonotone or someone figured it out. Thanks!
  5. I started another thread on here, this is killing me especially with the NON working wireless card in my Dell e1705/9400. I hope someone has some type of solution this is almost making me want to forget the whole OSX install
  6. I had this happen and just reinstalled OSX Kalyway 10.5.2 and did a manual update to 10.5.4. I know this probably doesn't help but figured I would let you know the 10.5.4 update works incase you didn't know. -Shawn
  7. Broadcom 440x Problem

    Dude thanks so much, I swear I searched all over for info about broadcoms dropping and never found any info. I'll try the manual IP and see how that works. Thanks again!
  8. Broadcom 440x Problem

    OK so I reinstalled OSX tonight and it was still happening. I think I narrowed it down to VMware Fusion. I've installed Parallels and have windows working and downloading in conjunction with the OSX OS. So I'm not sure if people out there just aren't using Fusion or if their setups are working, but for future reference to anyone that's experiencing NIC lockups whenever Fusion is even running in the background this could be the cause.
  9. Broadcom 440x Problem

    It sucks no one else has had this happen I just had it happen when installing firebug on firefox in the OSX environment! That's a 450KB download! Very annoying.
  10. I have a Dell 9400/e1705 with everything working except the 3945 wireless. I used the Dell post driver install package and everything seems fine, however after using my network Broadcom 440x builtin card hard for more than 10 seconds or so, ESPECIALLY in vmware, the card locks up. By locks up I mean it's transfer falls to 10KB/s and sometimes even stops working! Has anyone else had this happen? help would be awesome, thanks! -Shawn
  11. My broadcom 440x is having weird issues. I have OSX Kalyway 10.5.2 with the 10.5.3 update running on my Dell 9400 and it boots fine and everything is great. As soon as I do something like run Steam or download a large file at a fast rate it starts to get choppy and in about 1-2 minutes the connection will drop and I have to reboot before it works. I've installed the 440x drivers from the Dell Post installer 1.31 but it had the same issues out of the box as well. Has anyone else had these issues and if so what's the fix? I searched but couldn't find anything. Thanks! -Shawn
