hi guys, i have some serious issue with my broadcom netxtreme card.


i downloaded AppleBCM5751Ethernet.kext from a thread in this forum, copied it to /System/Library/Extensions/ and did the following in terminal:


sudo -s

chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/

chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/AppleBCM5751Ethernet.kext


the card works and connects to the net, but every time i try to shutdown/restart/logoout or disconnect the connection, OSX just hangs.


i had to do a hard shutdown everytime...how can i fix this?


much thanks for any help!
