Difficulty with Xircom CardBus RealPort Ethernet adapter

Recommended Posts

Hello there,


I've just installed OSx86 10.4.6 (JaS patched) for my IBM ThinkPad R40.


On startup, everything worked perfectly with one hitch.


My built-in ethernet and wireless card are broken. They stopped working long ago, and so I am using a PC Card.


It's a Xircom RealPort CardBus Ethernet yadayada,

the most important part being that it's PNPID is 0x0003115D


I've figured out how to patch my Kext files to input my PNPID, but I can't find a kext that supports it.


I can't find a single trace of people having success with Xircom cards, and I can't quite find out what my next step is.


As I search online for "0x0003115D" I find what appears to be some Linux driver-related stuff, with the text "Xircom Tulip Clone"


I think I'm going to try out the old tulip.kext...




can anyone point me in the direction I should go?


Thanks for your time.
