No cable connected (same as guest OS)

Recommended Posts



got OSX running on my Acer Extensa 5620!

Only a few more things:

- MOST IMPORTANT: I would like to have my ethernet running. It's a Broadcom Netlink Gigabit Ethernet card.


next step audio, webcam, ..


I thought I would be clever and install XP under VMware as a guest. Thinking if the guest would connect to the internet, i could bridge it to OSx. Basically having both OS's running at the same time. But who cares for the moment.

UNLESS there is a kext (driver?) for this network card -or a solution.

Have searched the entire forum and internet for a solution for above problems. They all seem to be from 2008 and with no working links or other solution.

Both OS's ive tried a couple of topics which ultimately led me to: "network cable unplugged"


Oh.. iPC_OSx86_10_5_6_Universal_PPF5_Final


O loards of the Insanely Mac Forrums please assist me ;)



My notebook:






still no solution found for this to work on my laptop.

i guess nothing -out there- really works for this
