Yosemite Beta + Realtek RTL8111 Network adaptater = unstable connexion

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Since I installed Yosemite on my computer (see CloverEFI V2 Special edition from Chris1111), I'm having strange issues with the network adaptator.
it's a realtek RTL8111 chipset.
The network seems to function correctly, as I access to internet et LAN, but at some point, it disconnect, reconnect, disconnect, reconnect... severals times, and after a certain amount of this seem to be stable again.
And sometimes, I've got only 100MBits while I've got 1000MBit other times.

It's annoying, and strange.

I use clover, and I don't use Mieze driver at this time ( http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/287161-new-driver-for-realtek-rtl8111/ ) as I'm not sure the way to install it.

When I tried it, putting the kext in /EFI/Clover/kexts/10.10/ (and also in kexts/others/) I have exactly the same symptoms.

Can you help me ?

Thanks for your help.

Miles

I have tried the two ways (one at a time ;)).

And with the two, I've got unstable connexion.

I loose connexion, gain it, loose agin... to the moment I have a connexion, but in 100Mbits, witch seems to be degraded...

I'll try to do again a clean install and see if it changes something...

Otherwise, on my hack I will stay to Mavericks...

And let Yosemite works on my macbook air.

no.

But I don't think it will work, because, under windows 8.1, the ethernet card is defective too...

For me the problem persists as i made a fresh install and i changed the card with an old one that i had but same results.First card was  RTL8169 PCI Gigabit Ethernet Controller  the second one was RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller and problem is only with Yosemite as this card works ok with 10.6,10.7,10.8,10.9, and windows from where this post is.

 

Edit:Rebooted to Yosemite and it is working for the moment,unknown for how long.

    • Hi,Bergui.  I am certainly happy you finally solved your problem  but I am confused.  What you did is what you were supposed to do to do to begin with.  What were you doing before? You mean you were creating your USB with something else than a Mac? 
    • Is there a simple guide somewhere that explains what to do to to help out testing your ssdt's? I got clover configurator, ioregexplorer and some basic knowledge but it's hard to find out where to start.  Also... if I was about to apply an ssdt... is it easily reversible or do I have do an reinstall every time I screw up?   Edit: Admire your work by the way. I've been google'n this for years. Hat's off! 
    •   Hi Maldon, great guide! I got my old Dell 780 (LGA775) running High Sierra 10.13.4 nicely, thank you!   I have no audio and I see where you mention "Device HDEF + AppleALC + Lilu". I have AppleALC + Lilu in my KEXT folder but not sure what "Device HDEF" is. 
      Also when it goes to sleep it takes like 2 minutes to wake. I have a Q9400 quad core + Nvidia Quadro FX580 but don't have a DSDT for it. Can you help me with a DSDT?   Here are my RunMe Results https://drive.google.com/file/d/1Duv3XYyW4UhziDVVWdquwxYcGQ-D5tvm/view?usp=sharing   SPECS: Dell 780 MT, Q9400 2.66GHz Core2Quad Core, Nvidia Quadro FX580 
    • I've tried these several methods of booting into clover, but it still skips. I even double checked that i was using your Clover folder. Bios settings should be the same too... this is getting really strange here.
