Hi all!

 

I'm a brand new MAC OS X user myself (only a few days) and after following instructions on how to install MAC OS X 10.6.3 on my PC, I finally succeeded. However, after the installation, I faced a major challenge of now trying to figure out how to get the Ethernet (LAN) to work.

 

Again I searched the forums and internet to find help topics on this and tried all the method prescribe but no luck. Then last night there was light at the end of the tunnel. Unfortunately, I cannot give credit where credit is due because I cannot remember where I D/L this information but would like to say thank you!

 

Let's begin,

 

1. IMPORTANT - Find your Vendor ID and Device ID (please see other postings on how to find this)

 

2. First, obtain the AppleIntel8255x.kext an put in on your dektop.

 

3. Open the Info.plist in AppleIntel8255x.kext and add your Vendor ID and Device ID to this string

 

<key>IOPCIMatch</key>

<string>0x10518086 0x10508086 0x10298086 0x10308086&0xfff0ffff 0x12098086 0x12278086 0x12288086 0x12298086 0x24498086 0x24598086 0x245d8086 0x10918086 0x10608086&0xfff0ffff </string>

 

because my Vendor ID is 27dc and Device ID is 8086, I will add 0x27dc8086 to the end of the string so it looks like this

 

<key>IOPCIMatch</key>

<string>0x10518086 0x10508086 0x10298086 0x10308086&0xfff0ffff 0x12098086 0x12278086 0x12288086 0x12298086 0x24498086 0x24598086 0x245d8086 0x10918086 0x10608086&0xfff0ffff 0x27dc8086/string>

 

4. Next, all you need to do is drag the AppleIntel8255x.kext to the following folder: /System/Library/Extensions/. You will need to Authenticate with your administrative password.

 

5. Finally, Open Terminal and enter the following commands and as soon as you finish the Ethernet should be detected immediately.

 

sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntel8255x.kext [authenticated with password]

sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntel8255x.kext

sudo kextload -v /System/Library/Extensions/AppleIntel8255x.kext

 

then clear the cache with

 

sudo rm /System/Library/Extensions.mkext.

 

I did not come up with this method and am very much a new user so please I cannot answer any technical questions. Maybe others can help if you cannot get it.

 

Goodluck!
