google and search for e1000.kext. Install it on your machine.

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

I have download and installed but no luck.

 

I have searched on google and downloaded the "IntelE1000e.kext" from this link http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/lofiversi...hp/t219114.html, the second attachment - "here's the kext for 32- or 64-bit 10.6".

 

For installing, I have used the kext helper and thereafter I have run repair disk permissions on disk utility and re-boot but no luck.

 

Here are my network card details that may put some light on the issue.

 

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1092&SUBSYS_FF101179&REV_02

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1092&SUBSYS_FF101179

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1092&CC_020000

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1092&CC_0200

 

Any help will be highly appreciated !

Hi All

 

I have successfully installed iAtkos S3 v2 - 10.6.x and all works fine. The only problem is my wired network card is not detected - Intel Pro/100 VE.

 

On the Network section it only shows FireWire (not connected).

 

Any help will be highly appreciated !

 

 

You could try one of those live linux cd and see if it automatically detects your nic and connects to the internet. If it does, then you card is good and perhaps you need to install the correct kext/driver for you ethernet card.

Do you mean i need to install Linux on my laptop to test the network card?

 

I have windows 7 running on the laptop and my card is working fine.

 

Please advise?

I did not assume that you had windows 7 installed although that is a reasonable assumption.

 

Problems with your card go back some time. This link seems fairly recent:

I notice that there are both onboard or integrated versions of intel pro 10/100 VE and you have said that you have a card that you plug in.

Sorry I did not make this clear earlier reference to Windows 7, also my computer is a laptop which Toshiba Equium A100 series.

 

The Network card (Intel Pro/100) that I am refering to is onboard one. I also have onboard wireless card which Intel® PRO/Wireless 3945ABG which also does not work.

 

Any help will be highly appreciated !

Hackintosh does not support nearly as much 3rd party hardware as Windows. People usually look at an HCL, Hardware Compatibility List, to help them choose hardware. Old hardware receives less support as time goes by and is eventually discontinued. That means people often have to download older software to make their older hardware work.

HCL 10.5.8 Wired (Ethernet) [This is the last release where I see your card in the HCL.]

 

Build-in 10/100 Intel 10/100 Pro Ve NIC Intel Add Vendor-Device ID to IONetworkingFamily and AppleIntel82845.kext.

Remove AppleIntel8254.kext. Use a Good HPET.Kext for avoiding Cable Unplugged. Use HPET from iAtkos 10.5.5 install. not fully working w/o patch

Intel® PRO/Wireless® 3945ABG

 

You might have a wireless communication switch, Fn-F8, which turns wireless on and off. Also sometimes in the Bios is a choice to enable onboard/built-in ethernet (which means part of the motherboard, and not a separate mini-card) or to use a ethernet card and disable the built-in ethernet port in the Bios.

Do you have this entry in SL for using the built-in Pro 100/VE? Extra/com.apple.Boot.plist

<dict>

<key>EthernetBuiltIn</key>

<string>Yes</string>

 

I don't have your hardware so I haven't tested it. The wireless driver has security limitations.

I've seen quite a few threads on trying to get the Pro 100/VE to work, people have problems with it. Getting older hardware to work takes a lot of persistence, reading and learning. The link I gave before, http://sites.google.com/site/osx86guides/H...ethernet-driver

seems to match the instructions that came on the HCL 10.5.8 webpage above in this post. I've seen posts on InsanelyMac about how to get the Device ID in the right format. You can do a search. There is a Search window at the top of these posts: intel pro 100/ve UPDATE: That's how I found this post with your computer specs, problems and questions.

Thanks for your detailed reply.

 

I have carefully read through the link provided but I only had some partial success.

 

Intel® PRO/Wireless® 3945ABG - I have managed to download and install the kext and Mac OS detected my wireless card on Airport and I am able to see my wireless router but when try to connect it fails. I have disabled the security on the router i.e no password.

 

Intel Pro/100 VE - I don't have the file AppleIntel82845.kext but I do have AppleIntel8254.kext, therefore is there a way to download AppleIntel82845.kext from web.

 

In Addition to above I also don't have the folder extra under System/Library. Is this because I have Snow Leopard 10.6.4 install?

 

I don't think the above wired/wireless network will work on 10.6.4 !

 

Can you please suggest any cheap USB or PCI based wireless card that i could buy from store that will work with Snow Leopard 10.6.4?

There is a typo in what I copied and pasted, it should be 55 not 45. AppleIntel8255x.kext.zip

http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=25477

"I don't see this posted, so I'm making a HowTo.

 

Anyways, this for when you have Intel PRO/100 VE. When you go into System Preferences/Network and your Built-In Ethernet is not show/grayed out, this is the fix for you.

 

You are required to add a product ID AppleIntel8255x.kext, which is located here:

/System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleIntel8255x.kext/Contents/Info.plist

 

If you don't know how to get into the kext, right click it and choose "Show Package Contents."

 

------------------------------------------------------------------

 

I am going to provide an alternate download source because it contains a ReadMe.rtf as well as the kext. The readme lists your Device ID as supported, 8086:1092 And you provided the info below,

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1092&SUBSYS_FF101179&REV_02

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1092&SUBSYS_FF101179

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1092&CC_020000

PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1092&CC_0200

 

 

http://www.mediafire.com/?sharekey=54d9302...6c009e657c9#3,1

Only check one of these folders at a time to download it: Checkmark IntelPro100Snow.zip which contains the *8255x.kext and the Readme.rtf file. These are the files referenced in 100/ve install guide, previously mentioned,

http://sites.google.com/site/osx86guides/H...ethernet-driver

"Important: Before you start, there's some cleaning to do. If you installed OS X via a distro(JaS, iDeneb, Klayway, etc...), installed the adapter fix present in most of these distros and it didn't worked (never worked for me), watch out for duplicates: - go to System/Library/Extensions (S/L/E) folder and look for AppleIntel8255x.kext. If you find it delete it. It was installed by the distro fix. The real place for it is inside IONetworkingFamily.kext in Plugins folder."

 

I've also read it is better to use Kext Helper b7 to repair permissions than Disk Utility.

The security mentioned is about whether you have some type of encryption (like WPA) enabled so that nobody can share your broadcast network. Supposedly, that 3945ABG driver works if no encryption method is applied which is not the same as just a password to your router which can work whether or not there is a wireless network.

I don't know if your router applies some kind of default encryption method when you set this up, although there may be another password at this step. You can't use WEP or WPA.

 

Most of the instructions say to remove the *8254.kext. And the instructions Path here is

/System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleIntel8255x.kext ...

My 10.6.4 had an Extra folder. But I used tonymac's [url=&quot;http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/&quot;]#####[/url] to install SL, and if you used another method then it may well be that you don't have an Extra folder.

 

"Can you please suggest any cheap USB or PCI based wireless card that i could buy from store that will work with Snow Leopard 10.6.4?"

 

As you can surmise, learning how to follow the instructions can be quite time-consuming. It is no doubt easier and perhaps cheaper in terms of your time to buy a wireless card. They have Hardware Compatibiliy Lists, HCL. There are wireless cards that might work with other computers, but not yours. You need a card that has been proven to work with your Toshiba Equium A100

Perhaps, you could make another post asking specifically for a wireless card that works out of the box with you Toshiba Equium A100, or try some Hackintosh forum searches, or Google. Good luck, I can't vouch for a card that will work for you, somebody else may be able to. One other thing, these driver/kexts for older hardware are sometimes 32 bit drivers only. So you could try booting SL in 32 bit mode; this is just in case you installed SL x64

 

I did find this cheap ($10) USB wifi which was reported to work on Hackintosh with 10.6.4, with the right driver.

It's still a good idea to find one that is proven to work with your computer. A mini-card to replace your 3945abg, it may be hard to find and the 3945 is located under your keyboard I think.

Thanks for your reply.

 

I have installed AppleIntel8255x.kext correctly and added my product ID on the info.plist file but no luck. The network is not detected completly.

 

Is there way to debug to check for any errors?

 

With reference to wireless card 3945ABG, which is detected and view all the available wireless networks and when i try to connect and nothing happens.

 

Here i have attached a copy of IONetworkingFamily.kext file, just in-case i have done something incorrectly.

 

I am stuck here, any further help with reference to debug will be appreciated.

I have managed to fix my problem with Wired Intel Pro/100 VE. The only fix i had do was remove the file AppleHPET.kext from S/L/E

 

Now I am writing this from Mac OS !

 

Thanks a lot for your help.

 

Isn't that amazing! I see that it was eventually suggested in the Howto fix Network Problem links. Persistence is the most important quality when fixing computer problems. Your HPET fix didn't work for everybody, sometimes it's a combination of different attempted fixes (*8255x kext). And when you win, it feels really good!
