**UPDATE** Working on the DC7700 Intel 82556DM, my bad for not following the instructions closely.

I am only getting speeds of 10mb, not 100 or 1000 even when I force the speed its only 10

 

Tried it on my HP DC7700 with a 82556DM, no workie..

hi Dingguijin,thank you for your hardwork on this driver!

 

I tried your driver with Lenovo X61,though it has the same NIC with your T61P, I could not get it work.

 

Could you tell me how to install the driver correctly?

 

thanks

Tried on my Dell Vostro 200 with Intel 82562V-2 (DevID: 0x10C0 VenID:0x8086) chip.

Had to change "OSBundleLibraries" in Info.plist - took them from AppleIntel8254x.kext

I use Leo4All v3 (10.5.2).

 

Thank you for your work!! ;)

 

I can make some test if you need.

Tested in an Intel DP965LT motherboard with an Intel 82566DC onboard NIC, after adding the deviceid (0x104b8086) I'm happy to report a working ethernet conection.

 

Great work dingguijin !!!

 

Cheers

With 10.5.2 kernel I get following error when I try to load driver:

kextload: cannot resolve dependencies for kernel extension /System/Library/Extensions/Intel82566MM.kext

 

From that page I see people say I should upgrade to 10.5.3?

Any way to make it work on 10.5.2?

How to change OSBundleLibraries item in Info.plist?

 

Try the following steps:

 

1) run kextstat to catch your system information and especially the version of com.apple.iokit.IONetworkingFamily, com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily, com.apple.kpi.bsd, com.apple.kpi.iokit, com.apple.kpi.libkern, com.apple.kpi.mach.

 

2) Go to the directory of Intel82566MM.kext/Contents and replace the version string with your system's.

 

 

On my OSX (10.5.3) the version string should be:

<key>OSBundleLibraries</key>

<dict>

<key>com.apple.iokit.IONetworkingFamily</key>

<string>1.6.0</string>

<key>com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily</key>

<string>2.4.1</string>

<key>com.apple.kpi.bsd</key>

<string>9.3.0</string>

<key>com.apple.kpi.iokit</key>

<string>9.3.0</string>

<key>com.apple.kpi.libkern</key>

<string>9.3.0</string>

<key>com.apple.kpi.mach</key>

<string>9.3.0</string>

</dict>

 

 

 

For 82567LM, what is the deviceid?

 

 

 

 

Checkout the latest package from http://techresearchinfo.blogspot.com. Info.plist update to support all kinds of e1000e ethernet chips.

 

<string>0x105E8086 0x105F8086 0x10608086 0x10D98086 0x10DA8086 0x10A48086 0x10D58086 0x10A58086 0x10BC8086 0x107D8086 0x107E8086 0x107F8086 0x10B98086 0x108B8086 0x108C8086 0x109A8086 0x10D38086 0x10968086 0x10988086 0x10BA8086 0x10BB8086 0x10498086 0x104A8086 0x104B8086 0x104C8086 0x10C48086 0x10C58086 0x104D8086 0x10BF8086 0x10F58086 0x10CB8086 0x10BD8086 0x10E58086 0x294C8086 0x10C08086 0x10C38086 0x10C28086 0x10CC8086 0x10CD8086 0x10CE8086 0x10DE8086 0x10DF8086</string>

 

But I did not test any one except the 0x10498086 (that in my laptop :-)).

big thanks! I have got Intel82566MM worked on 10.5.2!

you just need to modify the Info.plist as follows:

 

On my OSX (10.5.2) the version string should be:

<key>OSBundleLibraries</key>

<dict>

<key>com.apple.iokit.IONetworkingFamily</key>

<string>1.6.0</string>

<key>com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily</key>

<string>2.4.1</string>

<key>com.apple.kpi.bsd</key>

<string>9.2.2</string>

<key>com.apple.kpi.iokit</key>

<string>9.2.2</string>

<key>com.apple.kpi.libkern</key>

<string>9.2.2</string>

<key>com.apple.kpi.mach</key>

<string>9.2.2</string>

</dict>

I have been waiting for this kext for quite a while. Installed it on an Intel DG965-WH motherboard and didn't even get to close the

"KextHelper" interface window before I was notified that a new ethernet connection had been detected. A simple matter of disconnecting my USB wireless (Linksys) device and selecting the "new" connection got me up and running. I didn't have to tamper with any scripts---I just installed the kext and the wired ethernet started working!!

 

I am using Kalyway (10.5.5), recently updated from a 10.5.1 install (yes, I did update to 10.5.2, 10.5.3 qnd 10.5.4 when those updates were released).

Yes, It can not resume from sleep, PM not support.

 

And it still can not accept software force the SPEED/MODE (FD,HD). Simply based on link status and retry to negotiation with the peer when soft try to set.

put the *.kext file on your desktop and use pcwiz's tool (kext installer button) and install it on osx partition and reboot.

Just installed on Lenovo X200 (Centrino 2) and finally works!

 

I work it on kext helper 0.7

 

Unzip and open Intel82566MM folder

copy the Intel82566.kext folder to kext helper 0.7

 

easy install

 

then a new ethernet is detected! As simple as that!
