OK man, for wifi not have suport for this chipset, buy a Edimax 300N usb wifi have support with kext RT2870USBWirelles.kext 10.6 10.7 10.8, for Ethernet this kext, install with KextWizard/RepairPermissions/Rebuild Caches and reboot.

 

Good Luck!!!!

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

post a kextstat: put in terminal app kextstat > ~/Desktop/kext.txt

 

you repairPermissions with kextWizard ?

 

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

sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions

exit

 

reboot, go for System Preferences and add + interface Ethernet, see if this work for you.

i got error

System extension cannot be used .....

 

i restart my sustem and run this command again

there is no error

but ethernet does not recognize (I think kext file has problem and it's not for as8161)

Make a EFI STRING for your card with OSX86 app from here:http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=124911

after that i used it . ethernet recognise by mac and got ip . but it can not connect to the internet and it can not connect and find the other systems in network

also after i restart system network get disable. i have to shutdown system to solve this problem . any suggestion

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!!

      This project is dedicated to the memory of Mausi, the cat I loved more than anybody else.
       

       
      A few days before Christmas I started my latest project, a new driver for recent Intel onboard LAN controllers. My intention was not to replace hnak's AppleIntelE1000e.kext completely but to deliver best performance and stability on recent hardware. That's why I dropped support for a number of older NICs. Currently the driver supports:
       
      5 Series
      82578LM 82578LC 82578DM 82578DC 6 and 7 Series
      82579LM 82579V 8 and 9 Series
      I217LM I217V I218LM I218V I218LM2 I218V2 I218LM3 100 Series (since V2.1.0d0)
      I219LM I219V 200 Series (since V2.3.0d0)
      I219LM I219V 300 Series (since V2.4.0d0)
      I219LM I219V Key Features of the Driver
      Support for multisegment packets relieving the network stack of unnecessary copy operations when assembling packets for transmission. No-copy receive and transmit. Only small packets are copied on reception because creating a copy is more efficient than allocating a new buffer. TCP, UDP and IPv4 checksum offload (receive and transmit). Support for TCP/IPv6 and UDP/IPv6 checksum offload. Makes use of the chip's TCP Segmentation Offload (TSO) feature with IPv4 and IPv6 in order to reduce CPU load while sending large amounts of data (disabled). Fully optimized for Sierra (64bit architecture) but should work with older 64bit versions of macOS too, provided you build from source with the appropriate SDK for the target OS. Support for Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE). VLAN support is implemented but untested as I have no need for it. The driver is published under GPLv2. Current Status
      The driver has been tested successfully with I217V, I218V and 82579V under 10.9.5 and above. The attached archive includes source code as well as a prebuilt binary (debug version) for Mavericks and Yosemite. Known Issues
      There seem to be problems while using VMware with version 1.x.x of the driver. In case you are affected use version 2.0.0 or newer. FAQ
      Could you add support of for...? Well, you are probably asking me to add support for one of the older NICs like the 82571/2/3/4L or 82583 and the answer will be no as I dropped support for these chips intentionally. They are broken and I lost more than 2 weeks trying to make it work on the 82574L without success. I was asked to add support for I210, I211 and I350 but as these chips have a completely different architecture, which isn't supported by the underlying Linux driver, this is impossible, sorry. Does it work with Snow Leopard or 32 bit kernels? No and I have no plans to make a version for 32 bit kernels or anything older than Lion. WoL from S5 doesn't work with this driver but under Windows it's working. Is this a driver bug? No it isn't, the driver is working as it should because OS X doesn't support WoL from S5. Installation
      Goto /S/L/E and delete AppleIntelE1000e.kext. Recreate the kernel cache. Open System Preferences and delete the corresponding network interface, e. g. en0. Reboot. Install the new driver and recreate the kernel cache. I recommend to use Kext Wizard or a similar utility for the installation. Reboot Open System Preferences again, select Network and check if the new network interface has been created automatically or create it manually now. Configure the interface. Troubleshooting
      Make sure you have followed the installation instructions especially when you have issues with certain domains while the others are working fine. Use the debug version to collect log data when trying to track down problems. The kernel log messages can be retrieved with "grep kernel /var/log/system.log" in Terminal. Starting from Sierra use "log show --predicate "processID == 0" --debug" in order to retrieve kernel logs. Include the log data when asking for support or giving feedback. I'm an engineer, not a clairvoyant. Don't copy and paste large amounts of log data to your post. Create an archive with the log data and attach it to your post. In case you don't want to make your log data publicly accessible, contact me via PM and I will provide you a mail address to send it directly to me.  Check your BIOS settings. You might want to disable Network Boot and the UEFI Network Stack as these can interfere with the driver. Double check that you have removed any AppleIntelE1000e.kext from your system because it could prevent the driver from working properly. Delete the following files: /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist Verify your bootloader configuration, in particular the kernel flags. Avoid using npci=0x2000 or npci=0x3000.  In Terminal run netstat -s in order to display network statistics. Carefully examine the data for any unusual activity like a high number of packets with bad IP header checksums, etc. In case auto-configuration of the link layer connection doesn't work it might be necessary to select the medium manually in System Preferences under Network for the interface. Use Wireshark to create a packet dump in order to collect diagnostic information. Keep in mind that there are many manufacturers of network equipment. Although Ethernet is an IEEE standard, different implementations may show different behavior causing incompatibilities. In case you are having trouble try a different switch or a different cable. Changelog

      This is a dedicated thread about the intel 8255X based ethernet cards which, although being old (but also very cheap and easy to find used online), they still works in the latest macOS releases today i tested mine with the 64 bit compiled AppleIntel8255X kext and works like a charm! stable and withou any issues with mine 100 mbit managed ethernet switch and also without suffering of problems like connection dieing under heavy load or sleep/wake issues, so just to report that i have create this dedicated thread about and also i leave the kext as an attachment, in this post, this may be usefoul to have cheap working ethernet for hackintosh machines running the latest macOS or just to reuse old hardware some one can have laying around.

      I have started this thread to discuss about old and very cheap ethernet cards working in the latest macOS releases, cards who just uses old ethernet controllers or are new and cheap cards with old ethernet controllers, this thread is just to discuss about such cards and also to have a list in the first post with reported working cards with drivers linked.
      To contribute you have to report which card of this kind is working for you and which driver or method you followed to get it wo work and also which issues you have, and then it will be added in the list.
      I start reporting cards which worked for me, yours will be added in the future:
      intel 8255X based cards:
                just works using the AppleIntel8255X kext (look in the attachments) and seems to be stable with no issues
       
      And also there are some cards i am curious to see if can work with mac, so i leave this part at the end of the post, do you know if it's possible to get realtek pci (not pci express) ethernet cards working in the latest mac os? i have a few of them and i have difficulties fining drivers for mac, having a driver for the latest mac wil help me in creating also a youtube video with the cheapest hackintosh compatible ethernet cards
