An apple airport update was installed now wireless and ethernet are having DNS problems

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I have a problem that I have searched around for a solution for and can not seem to resolve it without doing a restore to a from a older HDD (just upgraded to a ssd).


Im running 10.6.8 and everything was running great until I decided to check what apple updates were around.

There was an update for apple airport and a couple of others that I can not remember what they were but they were nothing major and I was not worried about my hack breaking.


The problem happened when the machine rebooted, my internet just would not work, no wireless and no ethernet.

The weird thing is that SKYPE and FTP both work just fine so I was doing my homework and it seems to be an DNS issue.


This happened once before and I decided to just restore the HDD from my original build(mentioned above). Everything was running great once again so this eliminated the computer hardware and my network, Router and ISP. At this point in time I did not know what happened to my machine as I had installed a couple of things real close together.


So my question is can I roll back this update (I have a timemachine) and if not what can check on this machine and change to get this working again.


Also, if your internet is working do not upgrade your airport software/drivers from apple (lesson learned).

Any suggestions, or should I just upgrade to mountain lion?


I would really like to know how to solve this issue as it may be a setting or a bootflag that is needed or adjusted?

      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

      I am currently using El Capitan with an Asus Maximus II Formula, but the mainboard has a weird bug that the system freezes when im using the built in ethernet ports. (not only in macos, also in linux and windows)
      ... so i was using a USB Dongle wich worked fine, but the performance (USB2) was not the best.
      Now i want to add a ethernet-card to the system.
      Is there a cheap, and simple to install (maybe native?) PCIe Ethernet Networkcard that can be recommended?
      thank you

      I have done a semi-successful install of macOS Sierra 10.12.6 on my Dell OptiPlex 3010. When I mean semi-successful, I mean I have some issues left, one of them is Networking.
      Networking, meaning Ethernet, does not seem to work on this machine after installing Mac OS. I've tried installing kext files, reinstalling Sierra, and so on but nothing seems to work, I have an Ethernet cable plugged and it's lights flashing and whatever but the connection does not show up in Sierra.
      My PC Specs are:
      Dell OptiPlex 3010 MT
      Intel Core i3-3240 @ 3.40GHz
      AMD Radeon HD 7470
      4GB of RAM
      Realtek RTL8111E
      So, Any Help?

      Open source driver for the Realtek RTL8111/8168 family.
      New Driver for Realtek RTL8111
      Anybody who is looking for a add-on network card with Realtek NIC might want to consider the Delock 89357. This card is equipped with a RTL8111E-VL (chipset 16) which is known to work perfectly with my driver because this chipset is my primary test device.
