I have done a semi-successful install of macOS Sierra 10.12.6 on my Dell OptiPlex 3010. When I mean semi-successful, I mean I have some issues left, one of them is Networking.
Networking, meaning Ethernet, does not seem to work on this machine after installing Mac OS. I've tried installing kext files, reinstalling Sierra, and so on but nothing seems to work, I have an Ethernet cable plugged and it's lights flashing and whatever but the connection does not show up in Sierra.
Hey guys! i just needed some help with my bluetooth. i have ar9462, i know its not compatible, but bluetooth should work out of the box. I know theres a way to load firmware with windows, and I've tried rebooting from windows into OS X, which doesn't seem to load it.
I have an HP-M6-1045dx running MacOS Sierra with everything else pretty much working.
Also, I found this dsdt patch, unfortunately i haven't figured out how to install it.
I've been struggling for a while now with getting my Asus z270g motherboard's onboard lan to work with Sierra. I've been able to get most of the other components working thanks to the generous efforts of this forum, but this last problem has been causing me quite the level of stress!
The z270g apparently has a i219-v chip, however it appears to be a bit different than the device's supported by IntelMausiEthernet (Which I've heard works very well with that chipset). It's using deviceID 8086:15d6 After looking through the source of the driver it appears that the particular device id isnt being searched for:
00:1f.6 Ethernet controller : Intel Corporation Ethernet Connection (5) I219-V [8086:15d6]
Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Ethernet Connection (5) I219-V [1043:8672]
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 123
Memory at df100000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=128K]
Capabilities: <access denied>
Kernel driver in use: e1000e
Kernel modules: e1000e
Here's what I've tried so far:
With IntelMausiEthernet kext:
Installed driver in /S/L/E and /L/E in addition to the Clover bootloader kext directory. By itself, none of these caused kextstat to load the driver automatically (Aside from the clover directory)
Spoofing the Lan ID to something that the driver did support (ie one of the ones that was also using the i219v chipset), caused the driver to load (via kextstat), but no devices in system information or the network pref panel
Followed a number of steps in the troubleshooting steps that Mieze listed with the same result (driver loaded but no devices)
Didn't see any useful logging info in the debug info steps but happy to get that info if it would help
With AppleIntelE1000e kext (from insanely mac)Very similar results to above
With AppleIGB kextNo luck across the board (although I haven't tried spoofing the id with this drive)
Happy to provide more information that would be relevant to the situation but not sure exactly what would help.
I just did a clean install of Sierra and set everything up. All is working well, but I noticed something very strange. I am dual booting a Dell OptiPlex 7010 with Windows 10 on an SSD and Sierra on a separate HDD. While in windows my network is proper. I am behind a firewall and use the firewall DNS server settings and have the proper IP scheme. However when I boot into Sierra, I get a completely different IP scheme from the router DNS server that is on the outside of the firewall. I'm connected via a single ethernet line behind the firewall, so I cannot for the life of me figure out how my hackintosh is bypassing/skipping/passing through the firewall and going to the main router for DNS. This obviously causes problems, because I can't get to anything on my network from the Sierra build.
This was not an issue on El Capitan before I wiped the drive and fresh started with Sierra.
