  1. OK, I can confirm that I have a B202 with the Jmicron jmc250 ethernet chip. There is currently no support for this in Mac OS X or the osx86 community as far as I can tell. Also I have tested the Apple USB>Ethernet dongle and it works great. I managed to hang the machine by pulling it out while active, but I kind of expected that. Over and out Kaos
  2. no idea mate. I can tell you that I used an Asus USB-N13 wireless N adaptor on a clients MacBook Pro (dead Airport) the other day and it works well. they are pretty cheap and mac drivers are available, seems to be based on a Ralink chipset, so not 100% Mac like, but works fine. If you don't want to pull your box apart that might be an option. Kaos
  3. Hey Haddocks- I've ordered the Apple one that goes with the MacBook Air. Snow Leopard has built in drivers for this device so it should work ootb. Also I don't think the ethernet chip is replaceable like the wireless card. Here it is http://store.apple.com/au/product/MB442Z/A It's a 10/100 device so yes it's slower, but I don't care, I just need a cabled connection. If you're interested, I'll be using it as a Zenoss data collector to monitor an external network. www.zenoss.org
  4. Thanks for this awesome guide, my B202 has been the easiest of the 4 Hackintoshes I've done! Unfortunately I have a machine with a JMicron ethernet controller. I haven't been able to figure it out from the BIOS, but I'm pretty sure it is a jmc250 part from reading some Linux forums. There are linux drivers here ftp://driver.jmicron.com.tw/jmc2xx/Linux Is it possible we could get someone to create a kext out of this? I have no idea how difficult this might be........ It's not a big deal as I have ordered an Apple USB - Ethernet dongle which I expect will work but it would be nice to not need extra hardware. If you have any ideas to help me achieve this in software I'd really appreciate it! No, I can't really use wireless for the application I am using........ regards Kaos

    GA-X58-UD5 Sleep issue with 10.6.2

    sorry I haven't tried yet. The post linked above is pretty full on so I need some time with the machine when I won't be 'helped' by my 3 year old. I will post when I have some results, thanks!

    Mac flashed HD4870 in Hackintosh?

    I've built a couple of Hackintoshes but haven't been able to find an answer to this one. When building my new rig I figured that the best compatibility would be if I got a 1gb Radeon HD4870 and flashed it to Mac specs. My ideal result would be not to have to add any 3rd party kexts etc. It didn't work- the machine won't start up without aty.kext installed. Can anyone post a link or a short explanation about why this is faulty logic? Would buying a real Apple video card achieve this aim? thanks Kaos
  10. can you bond or team ethernet interfaces in Mac OS X? Yes, but as a previous poster said you need a switch that supports it. can it increase your afp transfers? No, apparently afp will only use one interface even if they are bonded Can I use 2 internet connections on a Mac at the same time? yes, but unless you run router software, or can use the command line you won't have much control. If you want to use 2 internet connections simultaneously, get a Netgear fvs336g or Linksys equivalent. This will give you fast downloads, and reasonable control over what goes where. want fast video transfers over ethernet? use iscsi and openfiler
  11. I would like to buy one of these machines to test, but it looks like I will have problems with either of the optional video cards. You can buy it with Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD or ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 3650 - 512MB both of which seem to have compatibility problems at the moment. 2 questions 1. does anyone have this machine running properly? 2. which video card would be more likely to work fully in the future? I have done a lot of searching, so any help would be much appreciated Kaos
