Great job!!! Working perfect on my GB. Z87-D3HP :D

One question my ethernet MAC address is 88:88:88:88:87:88, there is some way to change it? 

 

Thanks in advance

Yes, use ifconfig (see the man page) in Terminal to change the MAC address.

so far so good with 82579V on UP5 TH. If this works well for a few days i will roll it out to the rest of the systems in my care that have supported chips. thanks for all you do Mieze!

 

Whats the driver name stand for?

Installed and working on my Asus Z97-A with Intel218V ethernet.

 

Will keep an eye on Netstats, so far the only things that stand out

 

kctl: 5 send failures

icmp6: 7 bad neighbor advertisement messages (not using ip6 anyway)

arp: 2 ARP entries timed out

 

 

Thank you.

Mausi installed on my Asus Z87I-PRO (Intel 217V) with Yosemite. All seems to be working so far. (Haven't tried big transfers yet.)

ok, 107GB transferred over rsync over ssh over ipv6 no problems at all. That's a good start. I'll just leave it in use until and unless I have a problem...

Mausi installed on a Gigabyte z97x-ud7th with Intel 217V on Mavericks 10.9.5.  So far so good, a few large-ish transfer to check for issues, no problems yet. 

 

Out of interest is jumbo frame support something planned for the future?

I thought about implementing support for jumbo frames but I don't know if it's worth the effort as there is almost no gain in throughput in real world scenarios.

Mieze, thank you for your massive (imho) work. Thumbs up  :thumbsup_anim:

 

So far the driver's working nice (also having correct report of the NIC model / version). Will report if any issues or strange behaviour occur:

Does it work better than hank's E1000e with Yos ?

Can't tell yet it's better than hnak's (guess it is, cause Mieze says he dropped pretty old models / respective code in his fork), but Mieze's driver's displaying the model of my NIC at least so far. Will test / investigate further.

Do you know a good way to test the transfer rate of an ethernet/wifi chip?

I'd like to make a comparison between two different chips.

Use iperf for basic speed tests. For real world tests you could use Blackmagic Disk Speed Test over an AFP or SMB connection to a fileserver.

Thanks for the tip regarding Blackmagic Disk Speed Test.   I was just copying a 700gb folder over to a linux box via AFP, starting a stopwatch and looking at the "about 2 hours" as a guide,  then trying to catch it at the end to stop the stopwatch.  Granted I was also trying to test stability of large transfers at the same time, but I do I feel rather silly now.  :rolleyes:

 

So far after 12 hours of the driver being in place, and a complete/new time machine backup to test it out a bit more, its still solid.  Things are looking good.  Thanks for your incredible work Meize.

 

Also understood about the jumbo frames.  I think its more psychological on my end more than anything, seeing almost all my equipment/switches etc support jumbo frames, it feels a little sad when the old hackintoshes are left out.  But if its a major bit of work to implement, then its totally understandable - I'm just glad to have a driver for the i217V thats this stable so far.

I am aware of SpeedTest.net. Stumbled upon LAN Speed Test Lite (free) for Mac and Using netcat to test network speed.

Hope they will be of use to you :)

Its been working well for me the last day with very solid speeds.

 

BlackMagic Speed Test, 2GB

 

OS X SSD (MacPC) to SSD (13" MBP) transfers are roughly 105MB/s (write, read was 101.4GB), OS X to Win 7 on same devices was a bit faster. (so fast it made some component on the MBP whine)

OS X SSD (MacPC) to HDD (Mac Mini) results wobble a bit, Write fluctuates between 26MB/s to 58.4MB/s, Read between 34.7MB/s-104.7MB (the 104MB/s & 109MB/s results seem oddly high for a 5400rpm HDD, cached in RAM?)

Thank you! Working like a charm on my setup with I217v, much better speeds than with the standard kext.

      The laptop in question: Acer TravelMate 8472 TM8472 (Model: ZQ3)

      The manufacturer specifications:
      Intel Core i5 520M 2.4GHz TurboBoost to 2.93GHz 3MB L3 Cache 14.0" 16:9 HD LED backlit LCD (specifically a AU Optronics AUO313C B140XW03 V1 - Thank you, HWiNFO64 !) with the embedded First Generation Intel HD Graphics IronLake, no nVidia graphics (Dissembling the machine clearly shows where it would be installed for the higher end option) The display resolution issue was resolved by following this guide: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/286092-guide-1st-generation-intel-hd-graphics-qeci/ The display - AU Optronics AUO313C B140XW03 V1 - was found to be a LVDS by searching for the Product Specification PDF as, again, Debian did not want to do " sudo intel_reg_dumper " and a lot of hopping from safe boot to regular boot through the GRUB2 and Chameleon bootloaders I found that Alternative 1 and 2 1X works but Alternative 1 gives me some really cool looking unintended gitched after effects "You're weird." I know. 4GB DDR3 Memory [it has been swapped out for the maximum that it can handle of 8GB] 320GB HDD (Western Digital, I wouldn't have it any other way...) The original has been swapped out with a same size to preserve the OEM recovery partitions unfortunately both of them are 5400RPM ("Why don't you go SSD?" I know the technology has become better but I still do not have a whole lot of trust in it - If you want to argue about it, sorry, Imma gonna ignore it. If it works, why change it) DVD-Super Multi DL Drive This fine dime will drive you nuts... there is a designated system managed eject button, much like on an actual Mac, that is next to the second wireless switching button. Do not press eject as the laptop is first booting up unless you want it to lockup before or during the BIOS boot screen "Acer Nplify™ 802.11 b/g/n" 6-cell Li-ion battery VERY NICE - NO MATTER WHAT OS I AM RUNNING, IT... FREAKING... LASTS  
      "Okay... what does it really have?" Well, all of the specifications listed above and then:
      "Atheros" Bluetooth; so says Hardware Vendor Detection from the Acer Support website - Broadcom; so says HWiNFO64 from PortableApps.com And then the sticker on the bottom says Foxconn BCM92046 ! ! ! (MAKE UP YOUR MIND!!! FOXCONN, ATHEROS, OR BROADCOM?!?!?! WHICH IS IT?!) Chicony 1.3M Camera (works no matter what if your into that stuff) LAN by Broadcom (BCM57760) WLAN by Broadcom (BCM943225HM) (No cellular modules are applicable to this model, there is a disabled mini PCI-E socket inside that is only good for a fourth expansion board USB port...) Alcor card reader (registers as a regular USB drive/stick to all operating systems unless you install the drivers in Windows, then it registers as whatever you shoved in there) EGISTEC fingerprint reader where a scroll button would be (works only in Windows after you install it) Synaptics TouchPad - TWO FINGER SCROLLING EVERYWHERE, yes can you tell that I actually do like this function? The Trackpad and Keyboard are handled by AppleACPIPS2Nub and ApplePS2Controller kexts I regretfully obtained mine from the other macx86 [I KNOW! I AM SORRY! I AM NOT HAPPY ABOUT IT EITHER!] I cannot help it if mine is just being really picky (at least I am admitting it, besides, they don't seem too friendly over there, they didn't seem to like the matter I installed 10.6 on a Pentium 4 3.4GHz and on an Atom netbook and the result was them just simply deleting my account [just for me to go back and remake it to dissemble their stuff to see what they stole... again...]) Intel 5 Series Audio but Conexant drivers work in Windows, weird. I use VoodooHDA 2.8.7 in Mac OS, anything older seemed to do NOTHING and a freaking telephone modem by Conexant but the Windows drivers are Liteon Did I mention that this thing is from 2010? "Why do you have such an old outdated-?" Because my work gave it to me for free  
      FakeSMC V6 and Plugins to use HWMonitor 6.16.1372 to its full potential  
      (I also have the HFS+ drivers installed so I can read [only] the files on the Mac partition)
       
      "How is it setup right now?"
      It is multibooted with:
      Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate "That's on its way out very soon!" I have my ways of not being dumb online... I still use Windows XP online (*cough cough* Deepfreeze *cough*) Remix OS, a port of Android-x86 (very discontinued, looking into other versions) Niresh Mac OS X 10.8 with Chameleon "Why?" It's the last version of the big cats. Did you notice that they never did Lynx? Debian Linux KDE   "How did you do all of that?" And with a non-(U)EFI BIOS and no EFI partition, sorry, that is not what this thread is about... it was a metric ton of fun to get to work... LOTS of disk swapping and DBANs... and OSes like to manipulate partitions in each of their own ways and prevent other ones from installing without causing other conflicts like linux making a bunch of partitions because you told the Mac OS installer to format the drive with EFI in mind instead of MBR and so you have Windows, Linux but no Mac because the BIOS is only looking for FOUR partitions only and everything hits the fan including the kitchen sink...  
      "So what are you annoying us for?"
      Good question, because I am usually an introvert and usually just keep looking for answers but I could not find some. Jumping to it...
       
      What does not work and I would like thoughts on Bluetooth does not register, used to on previous installs (sorry, I did not pay attention to see if this was caused by me updating to 10.8.5 but that was necessary for the below functions) (It does not work in Debian either - Ignore) LAN and WLAN  - I have found Kexts (somewhere, I think I just lost them... dang it...) for the WLAN but I have yet to try them, nothing for the LAN I know this is cheating but I read that The NDISulator for FreeBSD (HINT HINT) is a port of NDISwrapper for Linux that runs Windows XP network drivers in Linux or BSD Brightness controls work from the middle down on the "Sun" brightness overlay, I got this far from following this: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/287133-guide-backlight-brightness-for-intel-80860046-1st-gen-hd-gma-5700mhd/ but I am kind of thinking of trying: https://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/287133-guide-backlight-brightness-for-intel-80860046-1st-gen-hd-gma-5700mhd/?do=findComment&comment=2214344 . My "magic number" is: 0xF        I used DSDTEditor in Windows, since I figured all the drivers are loaded, to extract the DSDT and compile something that somewhat works... Wake from sleep issue - I tried the above guide for that but I get no backlight and I can see that the cursor in the password field is not flashing when I use an external light source, but it will reboot when I press Ctrl + Alt + Power "button" (it is actually a slider) and then also clear my freaking CMOS right down to the clock... yeah I have the ACPI fix implmented and it usually works... DVD Player.app reports that no viable vidoe device was found (personally I don't care about the DVD Player.app problem, just wanted to put that out there for the heck of it)  
      Likely causes of: Bluetooth (BCM92046), WIFI (BCM943225HM) - So, I USED TO be able to turn on the WIFI from within Windows then reboot into Mac OS and have it work but I noticed recently that the indicator light for them extinguishes BEFORE it reboots now. When Windows or Android load, it lights up-- "No... really, captain obvious?!" --anyways working "No really Sherlock!" so OBVIOUSLY, the OS has to activate them... and preferably ignore the wireless switching button For the WIFI module, if you omit the 9 and HM in a search, results appear! Brightness - Will get reset to full "Bright light! Bright light!" when a "Load System Defaults" is applied from within the BIOS settings but like the WIFI and Bluetooth the OS will forcefully take control of it LAN (BCM57760) - I dunno...  when I search it, nothing comes up...  
      "Dude, what in the world is the point of this machine?" Cross platform software and driver development...
       
      Any help pertaining to the Bluetooth, WIFI, LAN, bizzar brightness and wake after sleep backlight issue would be wonderful... Thank you for your time and I hope that I helped anyone else out with some of their own issues pertaining to the Acer TravelMate 8472 TM8472 ZQ3 Medium-low model laptop...

      I want to present you updated RealtekR1000 driver. I added support for new chips according to linux's sources.
      Now it supports RTL8168E,F/8111E,F.It works for me and works better then v2.0.6 from realtek.com.tw. Now I have no problems with sleep/wake. With native driver I sometimes lose LAN after wake.With this driver never.

      UPDATE. In this version I applied my own inventions so my driver differs from native.
       
      09.10.2019
      The driver is on GitHub now, sources and release
      https://github.com/SergeySlice/RealtekLANv3

      05.05.2015
      Sorry about broken links. There is new one. My latest sources
      RealtekR1000SL_src_20.02.2014.zip
      RealtekR1000SL.kext-v312.zip

      25.04.2013
      Corrected a mistake with warm boot after Windows. Thanks for Mieze, dmazar, rehabman.
      Updated part for RTL 8105/RTL8136
      This kext is compiled under SL, XCode 3.2.5. For use in ML I'll check little later. EDITED: I checked, it works in ML 10.8.3.
       
       
      15.12.2013
      I made some changes according to official Realtek driver 8.037, newest for now. I can't say I take it as a whole. No, my driver is cropped and may not work for some chips.
      Anyway it tested for me in Mavericks.
      Change log:
      - adopted for new chips RTL8168GU/8111GU, 8411B, RTL8168EP/8111EP . But not tested
      - autolink to 1000Mb/s
      - some functions for WOL, not tested.
       
      17.12.2013
      More changes from linux sources implemented
       
      20.12.2013
      Implemented WoL as Mieze did.
       
      24.12.2013
      More codes for 8105E but not complete
