I installed this kexts file but ethernet card does not recognise by MacOS :((

 

Atheros AR8161 is a new model and i think it's completely different by the other Atheros cards

sudo kextload /System/Library/Extensions/AtherosL1cEthernet.kext

 

 

 

sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/AtherosL1cEthernet.kext

sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/AtherosL1cEthernet.kext

Hi,

 

I have the same problem... I've got an ASUS N56VM with also this lan. i've tried also your options but no luck....

 

I have also no experience with porting linux to apple.

 

Who could do this?

For any developer, this information may be helpful: when loading atherosl1c.kext during boot -v, there are 2 error msg: "mac state machine can't be idle after 10ms" and "could't probe adapter" seems that its not compatible for ar8161..... Hope anyone can fix it soon!!
