  1. Intel Wireless driver

    Thanks for the info What I meant for the LED is that I'm not able to switch it on/off through the menu (as you describe here), although after having used the software for a few days now, I've noticed that it works somewhat sporadically. Every once in a while I can switch it on, but as soon as I connect to a network the LED goes back out, and it will not come back on after connecting. I've tried enabling it after connecting, before connecting, and before turning the card on (although that seems kind of silly) and have had these same results regardless. I know it's not really important, and it really doesn't bother me personally. I just figure that somewhere along the lines in later stages of development people will be asking about this, and figured maybe someone else has had the same problem. Other than that, the driver has been working wonderfully. I've stayed connected to my home wireless with this for hours at a time without issue.
  2. Intel Wireless driver

    I installed the iw2200 driver last night, and for the most part it worked perfectly. The laptop is a Latitude D510. The only thing that doesn't seem to work is the WiFi LED. I do have one question though. I'm considering doing two things. First, I'd like to get my wired adapter working. I believe there is a kext floating around out there for it, but I noticed that the wireless adapter looks to be tied to en0, which, from what I'm reading, is normal for this setup, but I'm wondering if that will cause any issues. Any thoughts? I'd also thought about purchasing a USB or (if I can find one) PC card wireless adapter for use with encrypted networks, and I'm curious if this is likely to cause any problems since I'm using the iw2200 setup. Sorry if this has already been gone over, there are many pages to read in this thread, and I've gone over it as best I could in the time that I have.
  3. JaS 10.4.7 DMG - scrambled graphics

    I had the same issue with my first install of 10.4.7. The fix for me was to install the GMA900 drivers, as well as the SSE2 and SSE3 patches (assuming you have both SSE2 and SSE3).
  4. Help a NOOB !

    It depends on what exactly you want to edit within the file. A kext is just a packaged file containing other files. The best way to do it, is to copy it to your desktop, and then open up the terminal and use nano. The command would look like this: nano ~/Desktop/kext-name.kext/filename-you-want-to-edit
  5. Broadcom 570x and 575x

    Been messing with this for a few days now. By using some of the patches and methods posted here, I got to the point where it would detect a connected cable, and I could assign an address, but I could not connect to anything. I tried DHCP, which caused the system to hang when a network access attempt was made. My dev id is 1600 -- so I'm thinking that my problem may be that this is not the 5701, but maybe one of the other models. At this point though, I'm thinking I might just go buy a USB wireless adapter...or just wait until I have the cash to buy a real Mac.
  6. mouse not working (OSx on Dell Latitude D620)

    I just installed 10.4.7 using the JaS DVD on a D620. I selected the GMA 900 (Tried first without, only to have many strange graphics glitches), Sigmatel audio (didn't work), and SSE2 and SSE3 patches. It works great now, although I had to disable "dual core" functionality, as it ran really slow with it enabled.
  7. Show Your OS X Desktop!

    My current desktop: Click for full size Nothing too special at the moment...I change backgrounds quite often anyway, although, I'll probably be upgrading to a MacBook or new MacMini soon anyway (from the ol' 12" iBook).
  8. The Ultimate Web Browser

    On Macs I mostly use FireFox. There are a few little things about Safari that bug me, and there are a few plugins that I really like to have around. The thing that annoys me most about safari (and maybe it's just me) is that it seems to be a huge struggle to get it to actually stop loading a page when you click the "stop" button. On windows (when I am forced to use it), I use FireFox or Opera. Mostly FireFox.
