RealtekR1000 v3

127 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Tried this driver on my ancient GA-EP45-DS3 and it seems to work a lot better than the lnx2mac driver I was using previously. :)

 

Actually my ethernet worked fine (out of the box) under 10.5 and 10.6. Installing 10.7 on a different disk required a driver and it also somehow killed the ethernet functionality on the SL partition, and I had to install lnx2mac driver on both.

 

Anyway thanks for this driver, it works great in a 32-bit kernel (some hardware I'm using limits me to 32-bit).

 

edit - I spoke too soon... the driver worked great until a reboot. Now the DHCP doesn't work properly (gets some random address) and although I can set things manually, it doesn't connect to the network.

 

The chip is a Realtek 8111C - it has 2 of them in fact, with identical results on both :(

 

So anyone know why this would work on install, but then stop working completely?

this kext was working great on 10.10.0. But today after the upgrade to 10.10.1, the network just stops/hangs after awhile?. anyone else seeing this? any suggestions?

I decide to give this a second look.

darn. the RTL 8168E still has issues on 10.10.2 - compiled with Xcode 6.1.1 target 10.10

i plugged into a wifi router which is 100BT and still gets stuck after awhile.

RTL8168E-VL/8111E-VL

 

Is this detected correctly.

 

when using wifi, i have similar experience on network hang, 

fixed by manually change MTU to 1280. (pref-network-adv-hardware)

 

may be you can try this.


Also,

Andy Vandijck

just posted his version of RTL kext, you may try that too.

 

I will test that kext, sunday night, after the games.

else

// Queue slot was reserved but not used

// See outputPacket() for possible causes

DLog("Tx_skbuff[%d] is NULL\n", entry);

}

 

ldirty_tx++;

tx_left--;

}

else 

{

// DLog("Tx packet at index %d is pending\n", entry);

break;

}

}

 

 

looks like, interrupt and timing problem, it is beyond my ability to continue from this.

 

 

 

if your motherboard is very old,  LAN may share interrupt with printer or other devices.

you may try, in bios, disable printer device.

in the meantime, I have gone back to an older kext pulled off the RealTek download site listed as v2.0.6 for Lion.

This one works well enough for what i need it do. And is just as fast as my USB3/Ethernet on 100BT. 

seems to chew up about 15% of my cpu if i SCP a large file to the box. but then again thats about all this box does as HTPC with Plex.

The USB ethernet chews up about 22% CPU.

I have used the same kext from RealTek.

works fine, most of the time.

Until you try to use transmission to download.

It will be fine, if dl speed were slow,

you will kp when speed approach 200kps.

It happen on all the machine i tested. (GA-EP43, Rev-c,  Acer-605 Ver-G, AMD-Ver-C)

All i can say is good luck!


On ver-G, it shows in Pref-Network as connected, but not really.

 

Look at this forum, for user that has LAN  problem on 10.10.1, 

you will be find out, this is the norm, not the exception.


i think, i did wasted my time here.

Why not test Andy Vandijck, kext

or try disable Printer on BIOS..

 

 

Is this, A normal tester will do?

@aww - yes i had read there are/were issues with that old kext. but i did not see any issues in my limited usage. Certainly i prefer to use a newer version. So i am testing andy v's RealTek8111.kext today.

so far so good. a smidge faster - was able to transfer a file 11.2 MiB/s (1000BT to wireless router ->wireless extender @450Mbps -> 100BT

and a few % less CPU. but again this not a true performance test. I just want a stable interface!

Not working on RTL8110 (device-id:8167).
I added the device id to the info.plist and kext loads but no connection.

Could you please add support for this chip?!

 

EDIT: Sorry, this is a PCI card and won't work with a PCIe driver.

Hi guys,

I want to present you updated RealtekR1000 driver. I added support for new chips according to linux's sources.

Now it supports RTL8168E,F/8111E,F.It works for me and works better then v2.0.6 from realtek.com.tw. Now I have no problems with sleep/wake. With native driver I sometimes lose LAN after wake.With this driver never.

 

I have a little problem. Network utility shows Link Speed = 0Can someone help me to resolve this Resolved!

25.04.2013

Corrected a mistake with warm boot after Windows. Thanks for Mieze, dmazar, rehabman.

Updated part for RTL 8105/RTL8136

This kext is compiled under SL, XCode 3.2.5. For use in ML I'll check little later. EDITED: I checked, it works in ML 10.8.3.

attachicon.gifRealtekR1000SL_src_25.04.2013.zip

 

15.12.2013

I made some changes according to official Realtek driver 8.037, newest for now. I can't say I take it as a whole. No, my driver is cropped and may not work for some chips.

Anyway it tested for me in Mavericks.

Change log:

- adopted for new chips RTL8168GU/8111GU, 8411B, RTL8168EP/8111EP . But not tested

- autolink to 1000Mb/s

- some functions for WOL, not tested.

Hi Slice I made an Automator Application very cool and fast Installer for your driver  :D


Thats working absolutely perfect inside OS Yosemite 10.10.3 


Thank you very mutch  :)


Ps;This will Remove the old Driver on S/L/E if you have one


and Install the new Driver on S / L / E 


 


This is the name

Tried this driver today because Mieze's driver is not usable due to lost interrupts.

 

:no: Lost interrupts are nothing more than cosmetic issues.
