Acer Aspire X3200 - [Help] I Lost internet with Snow Leopard update

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have installed iAtkos 10.6.3 with success, read online to download legacy kernel for the 10.6.8 combo update which I downloaded from Apple installed, didn't reboot, installed the kernel package, and ran the kext wizzard and then rebooted. Everything loaded fine but took away my ethernet. So I went back to 10.6.3 and decided to do somewhat of a slower update, 10.6.6 and work up, lost internet with that.


I am for a loss, any suggestions..

make a backup of your kexts in 10.6.3 then update then restore them after your update

Should I try re-installing the legacy kernels or just backup kexts from/System/Library/Extensions then update then restore?

keep backups of the kernel and /S/L/E

Ok so I backed up S/L/E to a folder on my desktop. Now, I haven't backed up my kernels before.. I also assume I should use kexts wizard am I correct?
