I have networking working in vanilla 10.6.4 on my GA-P31-ES3G board with Realtek 8111c (8169) and it is working ok but I have read that I may be able to get more stability by using a different .kext (via Lnx2Mac's RTL81xx OS X Driver located at http://lnx2mac.blogspot.com/p/realtekrtl81xx-osx-driver.html ). I'm trying to make sure that I'm disabling any native support for it before placing the kext in my Extra folder. I do not see any Realtek driver in my System/Library/Extension folder so I'm just wondering if someone could tell me what I need to remove/disable on my vanilla install to try this kext. Thank you in advance.

Bam Rock,

Thanks for trying my driver !

Actually, once you install it, it will take precedence on your system over the vanilla one.

It will only clash if you've chucko R1000SL or psystar R1000 installed.

 

Other than than, just install it and you are done.

 

If it works for you, will appreciate if you comment on my blog ! Thanks !

 

Good Luck !
