Hello,

 

Can anyone point me to any resources for getting the built in ethernet on the DELL X1 working? Does anyone have any suggestions for either wireless or wired networking patching?

 

I have 10.4.5 installed and it works great. The only thing keeping it from being actuall usefull is the lack of network connectivity.

 

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Please do some research on your own hardware. Your wired ethernet is Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5751 Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express (rev 01). http://forum.osx86project.org/index.php?sh...9601&hl=BCM5751

Your wireless is evidently an Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG which is not supported. Try compatible USB wireless devices or miniPCI. Your PCCard chipset is apparently NOT supported so wireless PCcard probably won't work.

Ethernet

 

It's a Broadcom NetXtreme BCM5751 which is supported by the Broadcom Tigon3 kernel driver:

Linux Kernel Configuration: Ethernet

 

Device Drivers --->

Networking support --->

[*] Networking support

Ethernet (1000 Mbit) --->

<*> Broadcom Tigon3 support

 

If you build it as a module, it will be called "tg3".

[edit]

Wireless

 

Nothing special to mention here, the instructions of HARDWARE_ipw2200 and HOWTO_Wireless_Configuration_and_Startup.
