Recommended Posts

Installed mountain lion on my laptop... installed kext for my realtek ethernet!

 

Plugged in ethernet cable, and then it doesn't connect to internet.. i go into diagnotics.. on the side ethernet is green (active)... Network settings is yellow and ISP is green, so surely i'm doing something wrong? I have restarted the router multiple times but same happens..

 

any ideas? :)

Specs, specs, specs. What Realtek card do you have? What kext did you install? What laptop are you trying to install on? How did you install Lion? Add your laptop specs to your signature so I can better help you.

^ +1, and that diag thing for network is useless, it doesn't ever "fix" anything. You'll be able to tell as much and more just looking in network under system prefs, probably getting a "self assigned IP" and not one from your DHCP pool at the moment if it shows ethernet as active.

Your card is listed as supported by lnx2mac which makes me think you may have conflicting kexts.

Remove all network related kexts you have added and restore a vanilla IONetworkingFamily.

Install Realtek81xx.kext, rebuild caches and repair permissions and reboot.

You should now have Ethernet.

 

You may need to add EthernetBuiltIn Yes to your org.chameleon.Boot.plist for App Store etc)

 

And stop using crappy-beast, you have no idea what it is doing under the hood!

Just do things manually.

You need to install chameleon to your hard drive to boot without the USB.

Use Chemeleon Wizard to create your smbios.plist and org.chameleon.Boot.plist

Install fakesmc + any other kexts to S/L/E

Repair permissions and rebuild caches with Kext Wizard

Reboot

Similar problem Just installed ML on its own HDD. Mobo is GA-Z77-D3H with i5 3570K 8MB RAM.

 

Atheros 8161 on mobo and RTL8139 in PCI slot. Other two hdrives in the box have Win7 and Ubuntu12 on them and the cards work fine.

 

OS X sys info says no cards fitted which is clearly b***s. kext plugin checked and drivers definitely there.

    • ok, I am having a weird glitch with my Primary bios after modding it myself. can I get some help getting a Clean osmosis modded (for High Sierra and beyond) Bios Image?   https://www.gigabyte.com/us/Motherboard/GA-Z87X-UD5-TH-rev-1x#support-dl   the version I have always stuck with was F4, because the F5d.  I use a custom iMac 14,2 configuration that has been stable, the issues I have with stability come from not being able to get Access to the Bios, and prior to my attempt to mod it has been stable with up to High Sierra using clover, and up to Sierra with my very very old Ozmosis 894m F4 rom. I am not opposed to installing Ozmosis on the EFI Partition, But Gigabyte locked the Bios loading .efi Files, there is no shell to Force it to load HFS+ or APFS drivers.   so what I am asking for is assistance ether unlocking a Shell for my Bios, or getting a bios with the APFS, HFS+, and Ozmosis related files in it.   thanks again for everyones assistance.

    •     Install from fresh again. This time without Tony Tools, follow some guide in this topic. Install IntelHD kexts as usual in S/L/E and thats it. Everything works again, except for backlight, I never could have this work, also got heating problem and when boots apple logo dissapears from like 5 seconds and then appear the login window... Any ideas on any of this????
