Realtek 8168/8111 solution

Recommended Posts

Sorry DaemonES , but I cant find them on the applesite. Any hint where I should look?

 

Or does anybody have AppleRTL8139Ethernet.kext from previous jas-versions uploaded somewhere, so I could use that?

My time to whine now...

 

I just bought an ASRock ConRoeXFire-eSATA2 (Intel 945) with Realtek 8168 Gigabit LAN. I installed the driver and it works, but at random periods of time i get the grey screen with "you need to restart your computer". I suspected that the driver might be the cause, so I disabled the NIC from BIOS and put the computer to work for half an hour. And nothing happened.

 

How can I find out if it's realy the driver conflicting with anything?

 

At the moment I'm running 10.4.6, but I'm getting the JaS 10.4.8 soon. Hopefully that will fix it.

I also have the "Kernel Panic (forced restart)" problem.

When I install the driver, the internet works. But, the system suddenly stops within a few minutes.

Seems like a conflict between the system and the driver because it becomes OK once I uninstall the driver.

I'm using Asrock Conroe 945G-DVI, Jas 10.4.7 and the onboard chip is 8111B

Hope to be solved!

Thank you.

If I have a motherboard with two 8111s on it, will the skge-driver find both of them and drive both of them??

 

I'm asking since I'm thinking of getting a new mobo, otherwise I would just test it of course.

Eunyong how many PCI devices do you use?

tomtefar this is r1000 driver, not skge :) But yes, it will work with 2 cards (but will not work with one card and 2 PHY's).

I only use onboard lan (PCI-E 8168/8111) and embeded VGA (945G). There's no other PCI device.

FIY, I connect the lan to my cable modem (Motorola SB5120).

gajda yes, I have some guesses, but still no time for it (was busy with kernel dev). In general IRQ sharing is not a reason of crashes, problems with DMA on some configurations.

DaemonES: I just got my AB9 Pro and it seems to detect both the network ports. :2cents: I have not tested both at the same time, don't have the equipment yet.

 

*If* I had one card but two PHYs, would it still detect both?? (Can this be my case but I do not notice it since I can not test both at the same time???)

tomtefar it seems, that you have two separate controllers (one controller - one PHY).

Schweppes I and some other guys from russian community will start porting Linux ALSA to Darwin soon.

My Asrock ConRoe945G-DVI have same problem!

 

DaemonES: maybe 1.0.3 will fix that?

Works very stable on my MSI S262 notebook.

But has the problem mentioned above - it doesnt get the parameters from DHCP.

Well i just created several locations in `Network` (Home1, Home2, Work, ...) but switching them each time is qute boring :D

If you can fix this i'll be very grateful

It seems like something wrong with my ASUS A6Jc laptop(with a Realtek RTL8168/8111 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet NIC)

It appears a grey screen with 4 languages,just after I get access to the Internet.

How can i fix it?

first off, i would like to thank everyone involved in this project for their time effort and knowledge. i have this driver running successfully on an asus p5b MB running 10.4.8 w/ semthex, that has an 8111b LAN. It loads perfectly and has been very stable. The only problem is that the max DL bandwidth speed is always around 230KB, when it should be around 315KB.... about a 30% drop. I have tried changing the ethernet settings manually, but that didn't help, although i did notice that the port LEDs displayed properly. any thoughts?

Hi

my RTL8168 can be seen by my system. the in-build net is also good. but I can not go further on line.

I follow the steps, and debug was right. what is wrong?
