AppleIntelE1000e.kext for 10.8/10.7/10.6/10.5

767 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

As some others have mentioned, I'm using this driver, but my computer is unable to negotiate any form of connection. It detects cable connected, but will not perform DHCP negotation, or work with manual IP. Doing an nvram -c fixes it for the next boot, but the driver can fail even while booted. I am using a GA-H87N-Wifi with Clover bootload and 10.9 GM.

I checked Debug builds with WireShark and found that check sum calculation is sometimes not requested by system when the packet is UDP.

A really strange behavior change...

 

When UDP hardware tx-check sum is enabled in 10.8.5:

*IP (or UDP) csum becomes corrupted when UDP payload size > 64.

*The length of ip packet length becomes strange ( not constant ), too.

 

It seems I need to check the 10.8.5 xnu source when it becomes available.

Apple released the 10.8.5 & 10.9 source code today.

So, not sure if this is the right place to post, but.....I have a Gigabyte Z77-UP5, with the Intel NIC chip, device id = 0x8086 (looks to be an Intel 82579v chip) , running Apple 1000e kext version 2.17.

 

No luck getting an IP address with DCHP, no luck after assigning a manual IP address, speed, duplex, etc.  In my hackintosh, it can ping itself (if I manually assign an IP), but nothing else.

 

Any thoughts out there?

I am curious, do you know the device ID for your LAN as well? I cannot seem to find in the documentation what the LAN chipset is.

Does the NIC show up correctly in System Information > Ethernet Cards?

 

Have you changed any settings in the BIOS related to the NIC?

Hi,

 

I'm also having this issue.

Network hangs when copying large files, or large number of small ones.

 

I have an Gigabyte Z87N-Wifi

 

I can not use the one from my old system becase the integrated nic was a realtek....

 

I was trying to find an old release of this driver, (2.4.14 seems good) but unfortunatly i can't.

 

Can anyone help me finding this kext?

 

Thanks

I was running 2.4.14 fine under 10.8, but after upgrading to 10.9, the ethernet breaks after about 1 day of uptime. The system begins flooding the LAN with packets, causing collisions and saturating my gig-e hub. I just upgraded to 2.5.4d, hope that works better.

 

When the ethernet is malfunctioning, the display is also unresponsive so I can't really debug it further.

It's time for a positive post in this thread I think. :)

 

I'm still happily using 2.5.4 here, now on a fresh 10.9 install.

This is an 82579V (firmware updated) on the Asus P8PZ77-V Pro, booting Windows and OS X in legacy mode.

My ISP provided 3G modem/router is 100Mbit only.

The only hiccup I've had with this driver so far was a few versions back when auto-negotiation didn't work.

 

Thanks hnak!!

Hi,

 

I use an Intel Gigabit CT Desktop Adapter. I more or less accidentally installed v2.5.4d from the bad M****beast with Maverick. I had massive problems copying data from an usb 3 drive to a network drive, first thinking it was the usb 3, but identified then it was the network connection, although did not see any hint in the logs. I deleted the kext and used another method that worked before: patching the id in the Intel82574L.kext Info.plist to find the 10D3 ID.

 

Just wanted to let you know there could be an issue. Sorry that I found nothing else in the logs to help you finding out what exactly happens. The system just kind of froze, Finder had definitely some issue. Did not see anything in console before I had to press reset.

 

BR, Karlson.

hy

because of 3 months frustration.

I'm asking you if you can do this test for me about (probably or not) limit of that card

 

are you using twitter app. or twittdeck app. or email apple app?

 

because none of them is working for me.

tls/ssl/connection problem

 

the problem is filled in the syslog. but the problem is not shown in any apple forum or other forum!

and I reinstalled mac osx.. without any best news.

 

no way to connect to network in certain case.

 

before killink my balls.. I prefer to know if the problem is (or not) the lan card

 

 

bye

You know, for those getting extremely frustrated or having too many issues with the driver, there is always the USB solution:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA1ZZ0ZG0384

 

Something to consider if having gigabit ethernet and transporting so much data is important to you. (Note, USB 2.0 is not as fast as Gigabit Ethernet, you should use USB 3.0)

 

I don't have one, don't need one, but it might be of help for some folks around for $20.

Karlson post #412 tells something I was facing too.

 

I had network problems for a long time. I always used APpleIntelE1000e.kext for several Intel Based Nics. I had always problems while copying large files to SMB shares (Error -36). I wiresharked this on my Windows2012 server and It showed massive malformed frames. I disabled the internal NIC and put in an intel Gigabit CT adapter. Type 8086:10d3 and modified the original kext win the plugins folder from IONetworkPlatform \ intel 82574L kext. I add this ID and removed the secondary IO match. After that al problems are over.  Performance throughput @99.9% of bandwidth and sustained for hours. 

 

I don't want to make a statement that the whole AppleIntelE1000E kext is wrong but somehow it didn't function well together with SMB shares. 

 

Guys if you plan to swap the NIC's and buy a intel CT adapter keep in mind that there is chance you @fu*&^%^ck up iMessage | Appstore | iCloud because somehow it doesn't correct good when you replace the card. Even deleting NetworkInterfaces.plist in L\E\Preferences didn't help. I had to reinstall to get the network running as it should.

Hello, 

 

I tried it yesterday, with no success using old driver.

I've just bought an RTL 8168 Card, to use while no new driver is released.

 

I think it's a problem with gigabyte boards...........

 

Thanks

Perhaps this would help the developers to figure what is going on with the driver if they can debug it.

 

I just installed a fresh Mavericks hackintosh in a GA-Z87-D3HP (153B) and tried to run Migration Assistant on both an iMac late 2009 and this new hackintosh.

 

The assistant simply would get stuck at "Checking iMac..." message, with some intermittent "Makesu re both computers are I the same network" popping.

 

Whatever OS X was trying to do, 2.5.4d would not be able to work with it. I tried sitting there and waiting for about 15 minutes, and nothing. They kept trying to negotiate without success, even though both computers could see each other properly and internet seemed to work fine.

 

I then removed 2.5.4d and replaced it with 2.4.14. Migration Assistant could jump right after that screen and is right now finishing transferring my 650gb of data.

 

I don't know how to debug or help in any way, but if someone wants me to test something, just let me know.

Do you boot with caches? 

 

Try it with NoCaches

 

Likewise try the reverse

Um sure, happy to, but not sure what you need or how to get what you need.

 

Boot loader is Chameleon.....do you mean the plist?

 

Full specs as in hardware?  It's a Gigabyte Z77X-UP5 TH, Intel core-7 3770 processor, it has 32 GB of RAM, a Samsung 840 hard drive, with a 3 TB Seagate secondary drive, GTX670 video card.

 

I should mention I tried with a Realtek 8111 add-in card, and no dice.  I tried a couple of different drivers for the Realtek card, but nothing worked.

 

But a USB to Ethernet did work (kind of slow).  And wireless also works (also slow).  So yes, I could get this going some other ways, but that's not what I want.  I want to get the built-in Ethernet working.

If I had to make an educated guess, I would say it is most likely an issue with Chameleon.

 

Can you paste your org.chameleon.boot.plist in /Extra?

    • ok, I am having a weird glitch with my Primary bios after modding it myself. can I get some help getting a Clean osmosis modded (for High Sierra and beyond) Bios Image?   https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Motherboard/GA-Z87X-UD5-TH-rev-1x#support-dl   the version I have always stuck with was F4, because the F5d.  I use a custom iMac 14,2 configuration that has been stable, the issues I have with stability come from not being able to get Access to the Bios, and prior to my attempt to mod it has been stable with up to High Sierra using clover, and up to Sierra with my very very old Ozmosis 894m F4 rom. I am not opposed to installing Ozmosis on the EFI Partition, But Gigabyte locked the Bios loading .efi Files, there is no shell to Force it to load HFS+ or APFS drivers.   so what I am asking for is assistance ether unlocking a Shell for my Bios, or getting a bios with the APFS, HFS+, and Ozmosis related files in it.   thanks again for everyones assistance.

    •     Install from fresh again. This time without Tony Tools, follow some guide in this topic. Install IntelHD kexts as usual in S/L/E and thats it. Everything works again, except for backlight, I never could have this work, also got heating problem and when boots apple logo dissapears from like 5 seconds and then appear the login window... Any ideas on any of this????
