RTL8139 Not Working - 10.6.8

Hi, i'm running SL 10.6.8 on my desktop..



Mobo: Asus P5L-VM 1394

CPU: Intel Core Duo E4300 @ 1.8Ghz

RAM: A-data 1GBx2 667 DDR2

GPU: Geforce 9500GT 1gb (1680x1050, QE/CI)

PCI Ethernet: RTL8139/810x


Everything works, except Ethernet..


First of all i can only boot in 32bit mode, if i try to boot with arch=x86_64 just freeze on the grey apple screen.


All kext i found seems to be 64bit only..

I got them from osx86.net and there are a lot of kext for this card there, from description some are also for 32bit but none is working for me. When installing them, during repairing permission i get a popup that tell me the extension cannot be registered because has failed to load.. and also rebooting they do not load.


So, i tried with another hard disk, where i have 10.6.7 without any kext for my machine, and boot fine in 64bit mode, and my ethernet is working, then just to see, i booted in 32 bit mode, and ethernet was obviously not working.


So, i need a 32bit kext for my card, or fix my 10.6.8 to boot in 64bit..


can you help me? is all day i try to make work this card.....

Thank you
