Ethernet Card - Realtek 8188e

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. This is my first post, but I am in no way a newbie. I have been hackintoshing for quite a while now, and recently my Asus k50ij notebook crapped out, and I had to purchase a new computer. I have had some issues installing Mavericks alongside Windows 8, but I have been able to self troubleshoot and solve them. Now, the only thing not working about my new laptop on the Mavericks side is the wifi. I have a Realtek RTL8188E. I've tried installing the only kext I can find (Lnx2Mac's Realtek RTL81xx Driver) with no luck. Do I need an injector as I did with my Asus before? Or an IO Family kext. Please advise me. Specs are as follows


Toshiba Satellite C55A-3000

Intel® Celeron® CPU 1037U

Intel ® HD Graphics

Toshiba MQ01ABF050 (Hard drive)

Realtek RTL8188E Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E NIC

Qualcomm Atheros AR8162 PCI-E Fast Ethernet Controller (NDIS 6.30)


Anything else let me know!

Your installed kext is for ethernet and not wifi. I think your wifi is not supported under OSX. You have to change your internal card or use usb-wifi stick.


Have fun.
