  1. A New Driver for Realtek RTL8111 Due to the lack of an OS X driver that makes use of the advanced features of the Realtek RTL81111/8168 series I started a new project with the aim to create a state of the art driver that gets the most out of those NICs which can be found on virtually any cheap board on the market today. Based on Realtek's Linux driver (version 8.035.0) I have written a driver that is optimized for performance while making efficient use of system resources and keeping the CPU usage down under heavy load. Key Features of the Driver Supports Realtek RTL8111/8168 B/C/D/E/F/G found on recent boards. Support for multisegment packets relieving the network stack of unnecessary copy operations when assembling packets for transmission. No-copy receive and transmit. Only small packets are copied on reception because creating a copy is more efficient than allocating a new buffer. TCP, UDP and IPv4 checksum offload (receive and transmit). TCP segmentation offload under IPv4. Support for TCP/IPv6 and UDP/IPv6 checksum offload. Fully optimized for Mountain Lion (64bit architecture) but should work with Lion too. As of now there is no support for Snow Leopard but it can be added if someone will create the necessary patches. Supports Wake on LAN. Support for Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) which can be disabled by setting enableEEE to NO in the drivers Info.plist without rebuild. The default is YES. The driver is published under GPLv2. Limitations As checksum offload doesn't work with jumbo frames they are currently unsupported and will definitely never be. No support for 32bit kernels. Installation Before you install the driver you have to remove any installed driver for RTL8111/8168. Goto /S/L/E and delete the old driver (Lnx2mac, AppleRealtekRTL8169, etc.). Recreate the kernel cache. Open System Preferences and delete the corresponding network interface, e. g. en0. If you forget this step you might experience strange problems with certain Apple domains, iTunes and iCloud later. Reboot. Install the new driver and recreate the kernel cache. I recommend to use Kext Wizard or a similar utility for the installation. Reboot Open System Preferences again, select Network and check if the new network interface has been created automatically or create it manually now. Configure the interface. Troubleshooting Make sure you have followed the installation instructions especially when you have issues with certain domains while the others are working fine. Use the debug version to collect log data when trying to track down problems. The kernel log messages can be found in /var/log/system.log. For Sierra and above use "log show --predicate "processID == 0" --debug" in order to retrieve kernel logs. Include the log data when asking for support or giving feedback. I'm an engineer, not a clairvoyant. Check your BIOS settings. You might want to disable Network Boot and the UEFI Network Stack as these can interfere with the driver. Double check that you have removed any other Realtek kext from your system because they could prevent the driver from working properly. Verify your bootloader configuration, in particular the kernel flags. Avoid using npci=0x2000 or npci=0x3000. In Terminal run netstat -s in order to display network statistics. Carefully examine the data for any unusual activity like a high number of packets with bad IP header checksums, etc. In case auto-configuration of the link layer connection doesn't work it might be necessary to select the medium manually in System Preferences under Network for the interface. Use Wireshark to create a packet dump in order to collect diagnostic information. Keep in mind that there are many manufacturers of network equipment. Although Ethernet is an IEEE standard different implementations may show different behavior causing incompatibilities. In case you are having trouble try a different switch or a different cable. FAQ How can I retrieve the kernel logs?In Terminal type "grep kernel /var/log/system.log". ​I want to disable Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) but I don't know how?​Take a look at the driver's Info.plist file. There you will find an option named <key>enableEEE</key>. Change its value from <true/> to <false/>. Don't forget to recreate the kernel cache after changing the value.​ WoL from S5 doesn't work with this driver but under Windows it's working. Is this a driver bug?No it isn't, the driver is working as it should because OS X doesn't support WoL from S5. Current status The driver has been successfully tested under 10.8.x and 10.9 with the B, C, D, E, F and G versions of the RTL8111/8168 and is known to work stable on these devices. Changelog Version 2.2.2 (2018-01-21) Force ASPM state to disabled/enabled according to the config parameter setting. Requires 10.12 or newer. Version 2.2.1 (2016-03-12): Updated underlying linux sources from Realtek to 8.041.00. Added support for RTL8111H. Implemented Apple’s polled receive driver model (RXPOLL). Requires 10.11 or newer. Support for older versions of OS X has been dropped. Version 2.0.0 (2015-06-21): ​Uses Apple's private driver interface introduced with 10.8. Supports packet scheduling with QFQ. Please note that 2.0.0 is identical to 2.0.0d2. Only the version number has changed. Version 1.2.3 (2014-08-23):Reworked TSO4 and added support for TSO6. Version 1.2.2 (2014-08-44): ​Added an option to disable Active State Power Management (ASPM, default disabled) as ASPM seems to result in unstable operation of some chipsets. ​Resolved a problem with Link Aggregation after reboot. Added a workaround for the multicast filter bug of chipset 17 (RTL8111F) which prevented Bonjour from working properly​ ​Version 1.2.0 (2014-04-24): Updated underlying linux sources from Realtek to 8.037.00. Improved interrupt mitigate to use a less aggressive value for 10/100 MBit connections. ​Version 1.1.3 (2013-11-29): Improved transmit queue handling made it possible to reduce CPU load during packet transmission. Improved deadlock detection logic in order to avoid false positives due to lost interrupts. Version 1.1.2 (2013-08-03): Improved SMB performance in certain configurations. Faster browsing of large shares. ​Version 1.1.0 (2013-06-08): Support for TCP/IPv6 and UDP/IPv6 checksum offload added (can be disabled in Info.plist). Maximum size of the scatter-gather-list has been increased from 24 to 40 segments to resolve performance issues with TSO4 when offloading large packets which are highly fragmented. TSO4 can be disabled in Info.plist without rebuild. Statistics gathering has been improved to deliver more detailed information (resource shortages, transmitter resets, transmitter interrupt count). The interrupt mitigate settings has been changed to improve performance with SMB and to reduce CPU load. Configuration option added to allow for user defined interrupt mitigate settings without rebuild. Version 1.0.4 (2013-05-04):Moved setLinkStatus(kIONetworkLinkValid) from start() to enable(). Cleaned up getDescCommand(). Version 1.0.3 (2013-04-25):​The issue after a reboot from Windows has been eliminated. Version 1.0.2 (2013-04-22):​Added support for rx checksum offload of TCP and UDP over IPv6. Version 1.0.1 (2013-03-31): Improved behavior when rx checksum offload isn't working properly. Adds the chipset's model name to IORegistry so that it will show up in System Profiler. Known Issues There are still performance problems with regard to SMB in certain configurations. My tests indicate that Apple's Broadcom driver shows the same behavior with those configurations. Obviously it's a more general problem that is not limited to my driver. WoL does not work in certain configurations. Old systems with 3 and 4 series chipsets exhibit performance issues in recent versions of macOS because there is no optimized power management for these systems in macOS anymore as Apple dropped support for the underlying hardware a long time ago. In case you are affected, please upgrade your hardware or find an alternative solution because I have no plans for a workaround. Sorry, but I don't think that it's worth the effort. Getting the driver The source code can be found here: https://github.com/M...driver_for_OS_X There is also a pre-build binary for Mavericks and Yosemite: http://www.insanelym...n-and-wireless/ Building from Source I'm using XCode 4.6.3 for development. You can get a free copy of XCode after becoming a member of the Apple developer program. The free membership is sufficient in order to get access to development tools and documentation.
  2. I improved the driver originally made by Mieze. I added a setting in the Info.plist making it possible to change the MAC address of the card. It really works great and fast. I also optimized it to build as kext module with module support. Enjoy Source is included, tested under Yosemite. EDIT: New version. I added a userclient with a preference pane. Now it is possible to change the MAC address on-the-fly using the settings pane. EDIT2: I added a Github page. https://github.com/andyvand/RTL8111 RTL8111_driver_for_OS_X.zip
  3. Is there a way to run the audio with the Realtek ALC1150 on Yosemite 10.10.2 with bootloader Clover?

    Realtek 8111E on 10.10

    Hey guys, I recently (today) installed Mac OS 10.10 and I can't get ethernet working. I use the motherboard's default ethernet. The ethernet is Realtek 8111E and it worked fine on Mavericks, but now that I'm on Yosemite, it won't work like it did on mavericks. The page on OSx86 said it would soon have support, but I can't wait. I'm currently using a last minute setup. I used my jailbroken iPhone 5 with TetherMe and I set it to host wifi over USB. Plus, this won't work out much longer. Any help is appreciated. Thank you. P.S: How do I set ethernet built in on clover? (If I can get this fixed soon) P.P.S: I have tried NullEthernet.kext (Nothing) P.P.P.S: I'm writing a guide on how to install OS X Yosemite on a hackintosh. Thanks! P.P.P.P.S: I can attach any files necessary.
  5. 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.


    Version 2.8.7


    This VoodooHDA 2.8.7 can enable ALC888 audio on OS X Yosemite. Install it, restart you Hackintosh. You may hear some noise. To fix the noise, go to VoodooHDA pref pane in System Preferences and decrease Input Grain. Enjoy. Should work with Mavericks Will Work with Yosemite Might work with other audio devices on yosemite

  8. OK...I am running out of fixes to try from what I'm reading everywhere and I am out of my depth when it comes to the whole AppleHDA.kext patching thing, so I am asking for help. I am new to Mac OS in general and this is my first hackintosh, so I'm a noob here and I'm learning a lot. So far here is my setup on a dual boot Dell Optiplex 7010: -I have Windows 10 running on it's own SSD -I have OS X 10.11.2 running on it's own HDD -I am using legacy boot mode in the BIOS and have the Clover boot loader on the Mac OS drive. -Everything seems to be working great except for audio output/device. I have a Realtek ALC269 as my soundcard driver and I have tried several scripts and kext combinations but nothing seems to work. Under audio devices I have no output devices found, but under input devices I have "Unknown USB audio device" available and it appears to be picking up the mic from my logitech USB camera. (which also works when I open FaceTime) I have verified DPCI Manager that it shows Realtek ALC269 with codecID 0x10EC0269. There is also an Intel HD 4000 Codec with ID 0x80862806 listed with the same Audio Device and Sub Device ID as the RealtekALC269. There is a third device with a different Device ID and Sub ID but everything else is blank on that line. I have also verified in IORegistryExplorer that the HDEF layout-id does = 01 00 00 00. Would anyone be kind enough to help me? If I could get the sound device recognized I'd be fully functioning. Most ALC269 scrips/kexts I find are for laptops or other versions. I can't find one that works for my setup. I am not opposed to making plst or text edits with some guidance I just can't seem to find anything that relates to my particular ALC269 setup. Thanks in advance!
  9. Hola a toda la comunidad! Este es mi segundo tema. ya había hecho uno sobre la instalación de El Capitan, y este es sobre Sierra. Antes que nada, quiero decirles que soy muy novato en este tema, no entiendo todavía, la gran mayoría de acciones, términos, etc. Así que espero puedan entenderme y sepan disculpar si es que esta mal ubicado el tema y demás. Bueno paso a comentarles. Primero les dejo las specs de mi PC: Micro: i5 4690k Mother: Gigabyte Z97X Gaming 3 Ram: Kingston 10GB en DDR3 a 1300Mhz VGA: GTX 970 4GB Acabo de terminar mi instalación de Sierra 10.12.5 en mi pc. Seguí la guía de RampageDev para la instalación, y se hizo sin ningún problema ni complicación. El problema por así decirlo es que al reiniciar, inicia normalmente pero no tengo audio, hice la instalación con el archivo command que se ve en la imagen... Ejecuto el command, sigo las instrucciones, me detecta el codec, lo instalo lo mas bien, me pide reiniciar, lo hago y cuando inicia, sigo sin audio, lo comprobé en el apartado Audio de las preferencias del sistema y me dice que no hay dispositivo de salida.... A todo esto cuando inicie el equipo me doy cuenta que apareció una carpeta en el escritorio con unos kexts adentro, aquí les muestro... Que tengo que hacer con esos archivos? Tengo que montar la partición EFI? (No se como se monta jejeje...) Bueno, y mi segundo problema es el video... Siguiendo la guía de Rampage como dije, en el momento de elegir el config.plist, elijo el que activa los WebDrivers. Ahora, en la pagina de Rampage hay otras guías sobre la instalación de los drivers de las VGA, pero por ningún lado veo para poder instalar los WebDrivers. Yo pensaba que al elegir el config.plist que activa estos últimos bastaba con descargar los WebDrivers, instalarlos y ya, pero no quiero hacer nada sin antes consultar, no quiero joder la instalación. Bueno, basicamente esos son mis dos problemas. Desde ya les agradezco su ayuda, muchas gracias!
  10. hi, I've got a USB WiFi dongle based on a Realtek RTL8188CUS (because my internal Intel WiFi card is not supported) and I installed the official driver from the realtek website. Seems like it's a problem that the latest driver version is for OS X 10.8, because I'm getting kernel panics sometimes when using the driver's WiFi Utility to connect to my wifi. Is there a solution, maybe also a driver which uses the integrated "Wifi Connection Panel" (Dongle is detected as a WiFi device (not as a wired network as it is now) and i can connect to OS X without an additional 3rd party configuration panel). TheXorg
  11. Hello. I though I would start a weekly feature highlighting a great hackintosh utility, a good kext for wll known hardware, a good app for OS X that could or could not be hackintosh related. Anyways, let's start Pretty much every motherboard has ethernet and even in this age of WiFi, people still use it for It's speed and ease of use compared to WiFi. So you definitely need a good kext/driver to use that ethernet adapter and when it comes to Realtek's RTL 8111 series Mieze's RTL8111 kext is the de facto kext considering Realtek, TRENDnet, and Atharos. Specs from Mieze's thread for it here. You can download it from here
  12. So after I installed my Graphics Kext for my HD Radeon 3200 on snow leopard, everything went find but my mouse is this glitchy image shown in attachment. The only way for the cursor to show up is if I enlarge to a very large size and yet it will still revert to its glitchy image when the cursor is not moving. (Also anyone know how to get Realtek High definition Audio working in Snow leopard let me know pls)

    ALC887-VD2 Troubles.

    Hello for everyone! Recently I installed El Capitan (in a clean installation because a troubles after install) and I can't enable the audio. In my first installation (update from Yosemite) all was well but a few days, when I reboot, the logo freezes and that's all. In that installation the audio works fine (only the backside ports) BUT in this installation (the clean installation) I can't fix the audio. I tried a many tutorials for fix it but nothing result; also I followed a tutorial for a recognized dev but still not working. I leave my console output and specs of my computer. Please help and enjoy your weekend.

  15. Ciao a tutti, utilizzo Lion sul pc in firma ma per problemi con la mia Audigy 2ZS ho necessità di abilitare la scheda integrata (che mi pare di capire sia una ALC662). Il kext che ho provato ad installare, con Kext utility, sembra far riconoscere la scheda (che compare sia nel pannello informazioni di OSX che nel selettore della periferica audio) ma il suono non viene assolutamente riprodotto. Sapete darmi una mano? PS. la mia Audigy è ancora montata e i relativi driver (kX project) sono ancora installati assieme a Soundflower. Se dite che serve, li disinstallo e provo senza...

    DSDT Dell 7720/Help injecting Ethernet

    Hi, I need some help injecting my ethernet card into my DSDT. Found some solutions scattered around the web, but none of them seem to inject specific hardware information, which is needed. Attached my current DSDT and ioreg file. The "airport" device is located under RP01, i think the information needs to be injected somewhere near that location. Thanks for the help in advance. ioreg.txt DSDT.aml.zip
  17. Hi, folks! Recently i decided to adventure myself in the realm of OX86 pcs. Reading here and there and starting from scratch, i learned really a lot of things this weekend. Distros, virtualisation, ketxs, terminal etc. kept me busy in the last 48 hours. So, i have had some success installing Snow Leopard on vmware player. Managed to alter display resolution to fit the size of my monitor. Internet connection working nicely. Sound... well, here is where trouble begins: looking everywhere i could, still i didn`t find a driver or app that makes it work properly. I tried many, from the core audio driver to ensoniq. In the end, the sound was enabled but slow, distorted and crackling. I tried to fix it myself! Lost my entire sunday in vain on it, but i had to give in and share my pain here. And, with luck, get some help towards a solution or, at least, a hope that there is a solution for it. Please! My hardware is: AMD Athlon 7750 (kuma) 2.7 ghz, 4gb ddr2 ram, MSI motherboard with on-board sound, a realtek high definition audio device. Thanks!
  18. Hey everyone! Please excuse my lack of knowledge, as I'm new to hackintoshing! Anyway, I hackintoshed my HP laptop today and have a few problems with it. Right now, I'm looking for a driver/kext that works with my wireless adapter, which is a Realtek RTL8188EE b/g/n 802.11 adapter. I have already tried the driver that is pinned on this forum, but to no avail. I was hoping that someone can give me a link or an actual driver/kext. Any help is appreciated! Thanks! Nick
  19. 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.
  20. Hey guys, So I decided to bite the bullet, and since I already had access to it anyway, installed Mountain Lion on my hackintosh. Everything works, except my audio. I have an ASUS P5N-D motherboard with an nForce 750i chipset and a Realtek ALC883 audio codec. I already have a patched DSDT (thanks to verdant), which allows me to see the "Intel High Definition Audio Device" in System Profiler. Now what i need is a properly patched AppleHDA.kext to allow me to use my SPDIF output, but i couldn't find one yet. I don't want to use VoodooHDA. since it always resets the audio settings on boot. I know I could script that, but I just want it to work natively. Oh, and i also know that I desperately need to upgrade to one of these fancy Gigabyte UD-series motherboards but, we'll see about that when I have the money. Thank you guys in advance for your awesome work Tobias
  21. Hi everybody, does somebody of you get usb3.0 and sd card reader working on HP DV6 series? the details of the peripherals are the following: - USB3.0 NEC/RENESAS: Renesas Electronics USB 3.0 Host Controller [1033-0194] - SD CARD READER: Realtek PCIE CardReader [10EC-5209] For USB3, i've tried PHXCD.

  22. I have an Asus CG5290 desktop that has a gimped Rampage II Gene motherboard. It has Realtek RTL8168C ethernet. My hackintosh was doing well until Lion 10.7.2. It could get onto the internt with nothing more than IONetworkingFamily.kext. Upon updating from 10.7.2 to 10.7.4 I lost my internet connection. I got Lnx2Mac's Realtek RTL81xx Driver to load and in the system profile it shows my Realtek LAN interface but I can't get ethernet to show up in the system settings menu. Any ideas? Oddly LAN and ethernet work in Mountain Lion with Lnx2Mac's Realtek RTL81xx Driver. I'm baffled. Maybe while installing and uninstalling kexts I mixed something up. Does anyone have a Lion 10.7.4 IONetworkingFamily.kext I can download in case I have the wrong one.
  23. I have a Hackintosh with Mac OS X 10.6.8. Everything is working properly except the sound card . The sound card is Realtek ALC880. Can anyone provide me a way to get it work? CPU: Intel Pentium 4 520 HT (non-64bit) Chipset: Intel 915G + ICH 6 Graphics Card: AMD Radeon 6570 Boot loader: Chimera Kernel: Custom kernel

    AppleHDA for ALC889a (885)

    Version 2.3.7 (10.8.3)


    Use this with Layout 12 injection or DSDT!
  25. Greetings: I'm still working on getting my system fully working with all the qwirks out but I had a crazy time getting the LAN card to work so I wanted to post the way to get it to work. I'll post full a full guide on tonymacx86 when I get finished. Here's older related threads: http://www.insanelym...showtopic=29044 http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=226359 [system Specs] Dell Inspiron 17R N7110 (Laptop) CPU: i5-2450 Audio: Realtek ALC269 HD Vidoe: Intel HD3000 6G RAM [Realtek RTL8101E / RTL8136 Details] (From Windows HWInfo64) RealTek Semiconductor RTL8101/2/3 Family Fast Ethernet NIC Vendor Description: Realtek PCIe FE Family Controller Maximum Link Speed: 100 Mbps PCI\VEN_10EC&DEV_8136&SUBSYS_04D81028&REV_05 [install Steps] [step 1]: Download the official Realtek driver for mac 10.7 (listed "MacOS 10.7 on Intel-based Mac computer", filename "RTGNICv2.0.6For10.7"): http://www.realtek.c...3&GetDown=false [step 2]: Install the package. You'll be forced to reboot. [step 3]: Once back in OSX, you'll have to create an Ethernet adapter for your location. When you do, you'll need to manually configure the hardware for that adapter. See below: (System Configuration Menu -> Network -> Ethernet -> Advanced -> Hardware) Configuration: manual Speed: 10baseT/UTP Duplex: Fullduplex MTU: Standard (1500) These instructions taken from this post at osx86.net (using different drivers): http://www.osx86.net...do=file&id=1825 I can confirm that this works. I'm using my RTL8136 to make this thread. Thanks for all the great info on this board and I hope this helps someone. - Rytz
