OK, the installer is now up!

You can download it on my website. :angry:

If the site does not work, try refresh or at last cleaning the cache!

Please give me a feedback! :)

 

I just recognized that the name RTL1xxx is incorrect!

You know what is meant! :bag:

wow my nic is out of the computer now and im woking with my realtek 8111b now!!

 

Thank man!!!!

 

Thanks too DaemonES !!! wonderfull work

 

Thanks Neopheus for your installer i have downloaded it for future use, i installed the "hard" way.

 

@Neophus RTL1xxx ???? incorrect?

 

the only problem now is its readed as a pci network card so the PRO apps would not work

 

i remember tweaking the kexts to tell them they are en0 not en4, any idea how to do that?

So it would be super great if you can port/create that !!
Without hardware I can't do this.

 

aberracus BSD name for NIC card OSX chooses itself, so I don't know how to fix this.

Hm, again: my name is NeoPheus (or just Neo)! :)

Yes RTL1xxx is incorrect! the chip is named RTL8...

And you can tweak the enS by changing this file:

/Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist

 

Good Luck! :)

i modified that file and now its build in ethernet.

 

Maybe if i change the same for my Wiless usb card i could get it to work as an airport card?

Is it working as gigabit ethrnet or not? Yes, it does. 1 gigabit fullduplex.

I'll add Jumbo frame support after succesful tests.

No success at all. I have an ASUS P5RD2-VM motherboard with a gigabit Realtek 8168/8111 onboard. Right after installing OS from JaS 10.4.7 DVD I have no Lan working. In the system profiler I can see a built-in ethernet (type: etnernet hardware: ethernet bsd device name: en0). Network tool doesn't show anything. Ethernet is grayed out in network setting (control panel). Installing the hard way or via installer didn't help at all, though there were no problems installing. Is there any way to enable that damn ethernet?

 

Thanks in advance

Well .. thanks a million dude ..

it works like a charm.

 

i've connected it to my router but ... didn't get an IP.

then i got to tab 'ethernet' set it to manually .. -> 10baseT half duplex YEAH BABY YEAH i got an IP.

 

could it be that the autodetect isn't working yet ?

 

so i;m reporting success on my asus w2jc (Intel ) 8168

Doosje autonegotiation must works. Maybe your router can't understand size of network packets (now it 1500 bytes). Try manually set to 1 Gb Full duplex.

No .. my router surely doesnt understand 1GB connections ^_^

 

It's fine enough for me DaemonES (it worx) .. or you might want to test something out with my card..

If that's the case ... i'll PM you my messenger data..

Doosje Actually I don’t have any Realtek datasheet. All available info I found only in Linux r1000. So at this time I have no any idea, maybe later.

 

I discovered such an interesting thing: if your remote station is off at the moment of OSX start, operation system might report message that NIC link is absent. And OSX even doesn’t want to send any network packet (arp request), since remote machine bombarding OSX by broadcast arp’s. To solve this, simply try to set link speed manually.

 

 

igorken uninstall or unload any prev. instance of driver. Open terminal and type tail -f /var/log/system.log

Open another one and load debug version of driver (sh loaddebug). After that send messages of log window to me.
