  1. Version 2.2.2


    Open source driver for the Realtek RTL8111/8168 family. New Driver for Realtek RTL8111 Anybody who is looking for a add-on network card with Realtek NIC might want to consider the Delock 89357. This card is equipped with a RTL8111E-VL (chipset 16) which is known to work perfectly with my driver because this chipset is my primary test device.
  2. Have managed to boot into Finder without a usb but cannot see the outside world. Could you please help me to enable Marvell 80E8056 ethernet access on 10.9.5 13F34 ?
  3. This is a dedicated thread about the intel 8255X based ethernet cards which, although being old (but also very cheap and easy to find used online), they still works in the latest macOS releases today i tested mine with the 64 bit compiled AppleIntel8255X kext and works like a charm! stable and withou any issues with mine 100 mbit managed ethernet switch and also without suffering of problems like connection dieing under heavy load or sleep/wake issues, so just to report that i have create this dedicated thread about and also i leave the kext as an attachment, in this post, this may be usefoul to have cheap working ethernet for hackintosh machines running the latest macOS or just to reuse old hardware some one can have laying around. AppleIntel8255x.kext.zip
  4. I have started this thread to discuss about old and very cheap ethernet cards working in the latest macOS releases, cards who just uses old ethernet controllers or are new and cheap cards with old ethernet controllers, this thread is just to discuss about such cards and also to have a list in the first post with reported working cards with drivers linked. To contribute you have to report which card of this kind is working for you and which driver or method you followed to get it wo work and also which issues you have, and then it will be added in the list. I start reporting cards which worked for me, yours will be added in the future: intel 8255X based cards: just works using the AppleIntel8255X kext (look in the attachments) and seems to be stable with no issues And also there are some cards i am curious to see if can work with mac, so i leave this part at the end of the post, do you know if it's possible to get realtek pci (not pci express) ethernet cards working in the latest mac os? i have a few of them and i have difficulties fining drivers for mac, having a driver for the latest mac wil help me in creating also a youtube video with the cheapest hackintosh compatible ethernet cards AppleIntel8255x.kext.zip

  10. Hello, I am currently using El Capitan with an Asus Maximus II Formula, but the mainboard has a weird bug that the system freezes when im using the built in ethernet ports. (not only in macos, also in linux and windows) ... so i was using a USB Dongle wich worked fine, but the performance (USB2) was not the best. Now i want to add a ethernet-card to the system. Is there a cheap, and simple to install (maybe native?) PCIe Ethernet Networkcard that can be recommended? thank you greets
  11. Hello, I have done a semi-successful install of macOS Sierra 10.12.6 on my Dell OptiPlex 3010. When I mean semi-successful, I mean I have some issues left, one of them is Networking. Networking, meaning Ethernet, does not seem to work on this machine after installing Mac OS. I've tried installing kext files, reinstalling Sierra, and so on but nothing seems to work, I have an Ethernet cable plugged and it's lights flashing and whatever but the connection does not show up in Sierra. My PC Specs are: Dell OptiPlex 3010 MT Intel Core i3-3240 @ 3.40GHz AMD Radeon HD 7470 4GB of RAM Realtek RTL8111E So, Any Help? -Discount_Mac
  12. Buon giorno a tutti ragazzi, Vorrei aggiungere una scheda di rete ethernet gigabit su pcie alla build server che potete leggere in firma sulla quale ho installato El Capitan. Ho trovato questa su amazon che monta un chipset realtek RTL8111G, qualcuno sa dirmi se può andare bene o crea problemi di qualche tipo? https://www.amazon.i...bit pci express Oppure, dato che mi farebbero comodo anche delle usb in più, ho trovato la sorella gemella lan + usb3.0. Il chipset lan è lo stesso di quella sopra, quello delle usb3.0 è VL806, potrebbero funzionare sia le usb che la lan con questa? https://www.amazon.i...bit pci express Grazie in anticipo del vostro aiuto!
  13. Di nuovo ciao a tutti. Sul notebook in esame e con il vostro paziente aiuto ho installato Sierra 10.12.3. I problemi da affrontare sono ora quelli relativi al funzionamento e corretta configurazione di tutte le sue periferiche e dei parametri di funzionamento generale della macchina. Il primo problema da affrontare è l'avvio da notebook. Difatti non ho ancora applicato la procedura in quanto vorrei capire come agire in considerazione del fatto che dall'usb l'avvio avviene con l'inserimento alla gui di Clover del fakeID 0x12345678.
  14. Mieze: After upgrading to 10.12.4, my Ethernet ports are not working. Wifi is, but any Ethernet LAN port will not work. I've tried three different ethernet cards, including my internal motherboard card/port, and none are working. I have the latest IntelMausi driver from ReHabMan, (3/21), but nothing seems to work. Tried other versions, no luck. None of the cards will accept DHCP. You can manually address them, and they do respond to a self ping, but they cannot ping anywhere else. Not to my local router, (or any local IP addresses), and not to the Internet. I tried removing all of the network interfaces and the plist and rebooting - that didn't work either. Internal Ethernet chip is: Intel® I218V, 1 x Gigabit LAN Controller $ kextstat | grep Mausi 64 0 0xffffff7f83ac3000 0x24000 0x24000 com.insanelymac.IntelMausiEthernet (2.2.1) 43B3C3B1-E032-3C2B-8598-320889964F57 <53 12 5 4 3 1> ping PING ( 56 data bytes ping: sendto: No route to host ping: sendto: No route to host Request timeout for icmp_seq 0 ping: sendto: No route to host Request timeout for icmp_seq 1 ping: sendto: No route to host Request timeout for icmp_seq 2 ping: sendto: No route to host Request timeout for icmp_seq 3 ping: sendto: No route to host (but adding a default route doesn't work either, as the route shows as already added (or the Wifi card wouldn't be able to get to the Internet). I do have loaded the latest drivers from NVidia for 10.12.4. Most everything else works, just would like to get one of my wired Ethernet ports working. I have an Asus X99-A II (Bios version is 1501), 64 GB of DDR4 RAM, NVMe Samsung drive, GTX 980 TI with the latest drivers from NVidia, and of course 10.12.4. Most everything works. Just would like to get my LAN cards working.
  15. Hello, After reading the FAQ on tonymacx86 and doing a successful install of MacOS Sierra on my HP laptop, I tried to get the ethernet working. I installed the RealtekRTL8100.kext from mieze (from the FAQ). It recognises the ethernet cable but there is no connection to the internet. I've read every forum post with the same ethernet card and people that have the same problem. And I installed some other kexts but those didn't work at all. Name: Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller Hardware id: PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8136&SUBSYS_8099103C&REV_0A It should be a RTL8101e. I've a dual boot with Windows 10 and everything is working fine there. Can someone please help me? I attached my files, look at "problem report" at the bottom of the page. files.zip
  16. Patient: Intel i350 ethernet built into Supermicro X9DAi motherboard. Symptoms: constant disconnects on upload (files to FTP / sending emails w. attachments / using services like dropbox or wetransfer / browser uploads / ... ), so only restart helps. Treatment: edit info.plist of AppleIGB.kext (wherever u use it) and change the NETIF_F_TSO key under i350 dictionary to false: <key>i350</key> <dict> <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key> <string>com.insanelymac.driver.AppleIGB</string> <key>IOClass</key> <string>AppleIGB</string> <key>IOPCIMatch</key> <string>0x15218086</string> <key>IOProviderClass</key> <string>IOPCIDevice</string> <key>NETIF_F_TSO</key> <false/> </dict> Restart your machine and enjoy full power of your ethernet never ever crashing on large packet upload. --- FYI I use hnak's AppleIGB kext (5.3.5): https://sourceforge.net/projects/osx86drivers/files/Kext/Snow_or_Above/ located at CLOVER/kexts/10.10 on my system's EFI partition. --- Technical background (in Linux): https://tejparkash.wordpress.com/2010/03/06/tso-explained/ --- Fred says: thats all!
  17. If you don't have working "built-in" Ethernet (or your computer has no Ethernet at all) and do not have a supported PCIe WiFi card, then chances are you're using USB WiFi for internet access. The problem, of course, is that you have no access to the Mac App Store in that scenario. On a whim, I created NullEthernet.kext to solve this problem. It is a "fake" Ethernet kext that will never actually work. That is, it will not ever provide network access, but it can be made to look "built-in" and solves the issue of Mac App Store access. For Source/README/download, see here: https://github.com/RehabMan/OS-X-Null-Ethernet It is now confirmed working in at least two laptops where there is no Ethernet port, and the WiFi is unsupported (and not replaceable). Update 2014-01-23 A new build is up. This version can be attached to a PCIe device as well as a fake ACPI device (as in the first version). This allows you to load the driver against an actual non-working PCIe device if that is your scenario. It also avoids a DSDT patch as all customization is done in an injector kext by modifying its Info.plist for your device. The injector/PCIe technique is not relevant in the scenario where you have no Ethernet device at all, for that case you must use the fake ACPI device. See the README.md for details. Update 2016-12-16 A new build is up. This version can be installed without any tweaks to ACPI, and even without a PCI device to attach to. Simply i install NullEthernetForce.kext along with NullEthernet.kext. Read the README for further details. NOT WORKING YET. REMOVED.
  18. I just did a clean install of Sierra and set everything up. All is working well, but I noticed something very strange. I am dual booting a Dell OptiPlex 7010 with Windows 10 on an SSD and Sierra on a separate HDD. While in windows my network is proper. I am behind a firewall and use the firewall DNS server settings and have the proper IP scheme. However when I boot into Sierra, I get a completely different IP scheme from the router DNS server that is on the outside of the firewall. I'm connected via a single ethernet line behind the firewall, so I cannot for the life of me figure out how my hackintosh is bypassing/skipping/passing through the firewall and going to the main router for DNS. This obviously causes problems, because I can't get to anything on my network from the Sierra build. This was not an issue on El Capitan before I wiped the drive and fresh started with Sierra. Any help or insight would be much appreciated.
  19. I have been able to successfully get my 'hack' working. However I am not able to get ethernet working in 10.11.5 for the life of me. I am using Clover v2.3k r3526 with IntelMausiEthernet v2.0.0 loaded into my kexts/10.11 folder. The problem is that when I go to About this Mac/System Report/Ethernet cards, it shows the message: "This computer does not appear to have any PCI Ethernet Cards installed". The motherboard I have is Asus Z170M-Plus (with ethernet port Intel I219-V). Has anyone had any luck with getting ethernet to work. If so, any helpful advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
  20. Hi Folks, Newbie here so sorry if this in in the wrong place. I have a "mac pro" hackintosh running Yosemite 10.10.4 The mobo is a gigabyte GA-H87N-WIFI The GB website says that the two LANs are Intel® GbE LAN chip (10/100/1000 Mbit)(LAN1) and Atheros® GbE LAN chip (10/100/1000 Mbit)(LAN2) "* Teaming is not supported." (whatever the hell that means) http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=4601#sp I'm trying to use the ethernet to get online but either port still gives the "ethernet not connected" error message. System report says no ethernet cards are installed. I'm not a stranger to some programming and command line stuff, but mostly in linux. I believe I need to insert a kext file to drive the onboard LANs but Im a) nervous about making sure I get the right one , and b ) don't have the first clue how or where to insert it. Any help very gratefully received Cheers
  21. Hi. I'm having some issues with my PCIe ethernet. I installed applertl8139ethernet.kext using [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] on hackintosh zone yosemite distro. My laptop is dell n5010. This is my kernel panic after i use internet for a couple of minutes. BTW my ethernet used to work Out of the box on mavericks. PS: RehabMan's and lnx2mac's kexts dont work either.
  22. My MOBO - Asrock FM2A78 Pro3+ My boot flags: -v -x npci=0x3000 GraphicsEnabler=No (The -x is because I can't boot without it, a problem for another time though. It's pointless putting time into that if I can't get ethernet working anyway) It is always saying "Cable unplugged". Ethernet works fine on windows. Please Help. I have tried a lot of things but can't seem to get it working. The Ethernet is recoginised as en0. Please feel free to ask me anything. Thanks For Your Time Dawid.
  23. This is my first attempt to hackintosh. I've installed Mieze's Realtek8111/8168.kext and I can select ethernet on the network settings however, it's not recgonizing the cable being plugged although it seems like realtek boots up just fine in -v. Can you connect to the internet on 10.10.5 with an amd processor? Thank you. Edit:NVM. Got it to work. A combination of using bronya's kernal and replace kext(cache yosemite AMD), I finally got it to work. This will make you not need to boot up with npci=0x2000.
  24. Hello, I have a problem with my network. Gets disconnected apparently without any reason, just randomly, especially when downloading, but sometimes also when I'm only navigating. If I'm not wrong, ethernet model is an RTL8111/8169 (or 8168, I'm not sure...), and the kext which I'm using is the RTL81xx which is the only that works for me... I tried a lot of them. I would try to use wi-fi but I don't have the kext driver for my Linksys WMP600N. Plus, I'm too far from the router so I guess the signal would be very bad. That would be the 2nd option, in case we can not solve the above problem... Any suggestions? RealtekRTL81xx.kext.zip

    Maximus VI ethernet

    Hello, I am new to the hackintosh community, and I have a problem. When I boot up OSX Yosemite, my internet does not work, I am connected by ethernet. Also, I am dual booting OSX with windows, and in Windows, my ethernet cable works and my internet is working. My motherboard is a Maximus VI formula, so I am not sure which kexts to use. Thanks for the help. I am not sure if this helps, but my processor is a Intel i7-4770, my GPU is a GTX 780, and I have 16GB of RAM.
