Does anyone have this working with WOL yet?

 

I've been looking in IORegistry comparing a macbook pro with my hackintosh - there's a few things I that exist in the real Apple IOReg that don't exist in the Hackintosh's, but I have no idea how I would go about editing them and seeing if it would work - does anyone know of anyone that has managed to hack Wake-On-Lan onto their ATL1E?

Acer 6930 or 6930g owner.

 

In order to get the built-in wired port to work with this driver provided here,

you also need to replace the IOPCIFamily kext from this site:

http://www.osx86.net/view/2110-iopcifamilly_for_acer_6930g!!!.html

 

In my case:

Snow Leopard 10.6.8

Acer Aspire 6930

Atl1ekext_x64_20100430.zip ==> Attansic/Atheros L1E Ethernet kext for Snow Leopard

Above mentioned IOPCIFamily kext.

 

 

With this combination my Built-in LAN port is working.

 

The IOPCIFamily kext also solved another problem. Often when loading Snow Leopard

the laptop would hang. I guess with the modded kext the PCI bridges are initialised properly now.

 

Good luck to you Acer owner's

I have an Eee PC I got from woot back in 2009.  Works great as a Mac except the wireless.  I recently pulled it out to see if things had gotten better, and I still can't get it to work.

 

The sticker on the bottom says it's a 900A, but I recall that several very different machines have the same model number.  I have added memory and replaced the flash drive with a bigger and faster one.  It's running Mac OS X 10.6.8.  It has a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 and the following devices:

 

00:00.0 Host bridge [0600]: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GME Express Memory Controller Hub [8086:27ac] (rev 03)
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GME Express Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:27ae] (rev 03)
00:02.1 Display controller [0380]: Intel Corporation Mobile 945GM/GMS/GME, 943/940GML Express Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:27a6] (rev 03)
00:1b.0 Audio device [0403]: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) High Definition Audio Controller [8086:27d8] (rev 02)
00:1c.0 PCI bridge [0604]: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) PCI Express Port 1 [8086:27d0] (rev 02)
00:1c.1 PCI bridge [0604]: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) PCI Express Port 2 [8086:27d2] (rev 02)
00:1c.3 PCI bridge [0604]: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) PCI Express Port 4 [8086:27d6] (rev 02)
00:1d.0 USB Controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) USB UHCI Controller #1 [8086:27c8] (rev 02)
00:1d.1 USB Controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) USB UHCI Controller #2 [8086:27c9] (rev 02)
00:1d.2 USB Controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) USB UHCI Controller #3 [8086:27ca] (rev 02)
00:1d.3 USB Controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) USB UHCI Controller #4 [8086:27cb] (rev 02)
00:1d.7 USB Controller [0c03]: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) USB2 EHCI Controller [8086:27cc] (rev 02)
00:1e.0 PCI bridge [0604]: Intel Corporation 82801 Mobile PCI Bridge [8086:2448] (rev e2)
00:1f.0 ISA bridge [0601]: Intel Corporation 82801GBM (ICH7-M) LPC Interface Bridge [8086:27b9] (rev 02)
00:1f.2 IDE interface [0101]: Intel Corporation 82801GBM/GHM (ICH7 Family) SATA IDE Controller [8086:27c4] (rev 02)
00:1f.3 SMBus [0c05]: Intel Corporation 82801G (ICH7 Family) SMBus Controller [8086:27da] (rev 02)
01:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Attansic Technology Corp. L1 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter [1969:1026] (rev b0)
 
I think I've tried all the 32-bit Intel versions of the L1E at the Google Code site, but the machine doesn't recognize it has an AirPort at all.  I tried removing all the devices and clearing the plist files and it detects the Ethernet (which works fine) but not the AirPort.  Any ideas?  I have not used the machine much because of the lack of WiFi, so it'd be really exciting if I could get this to work.

Please, signal missing PC where you can find ATL1E!

 

===================================================================

Reader02 made the driver!!!

So thanks him for this great job! ;)

 

You can find last fully working AttansicL1eEthernet.kext driver version on 10.6 SNOW LEOPARD, there => http://code.google.com/p/iats/downloads/list

 

===================================================================

Howto install?

Install the driver with kexthelper Kexthelper Download (click)

 

===================================================================

Sleep issue... SOLVED

Reader02 solved the issue with latest driver version you can find in this post link!

 

===================================================================

How can you understand if you have ATL1E onboard?

- open osx86tools

- click on "View PCI device/vendor ID"

- if you see in the list 1969:1026 you have ATL1E

 

===================================================================

I remove the attached linux driver on this post, that's not needed anymore! :P

 

Please note:

- AR8114 it's related with the ATL2E not ATL1E.

- ATL1 Info.plist edit won't work, because ATL1 and ATL1E are not the same thing.

 

You are lucky,

ENJOY IT :)

 

Just for the records, the kext for Atheros L1E works in High Sierra 10.13.5 just fine.

Using: P5p53TD mobo with x5460 xeon

 

Thanks! Great work!
