Once again, fix your system and everything will be fine! This kind of KPs keep popping up after every major update and it always turned out that the driver is innocent. :cat:

 

Mieze

How to understand where is the problem in system? In my case KP happens when OneDrive syncing lot of data  (50-100GB)....

Thanks

Dumb question, can I inject this kext via EFI/Clover/Other or do I have to install it into S/L/E?

If I inject, do I still have to do the kext removals as listed above?

It's your call. Both methods work fine. Anyway you have to remove AppleIntelE1000e.kext in order to avoid conflicts.

In the past there have always been reports of kernel panics after every major update of macOS and I also received some of them from users which upgraded to Mojave. It always turned out that the driver is innocent and I have no reason to assume that it's different this time. 

 

Anyway, I ran some tests with 10.14.1 this afternoon using the prebuilt binary from the download section and there haven't been any issues. Version 2.4.0 of IntelMausiEthernet works perfectly with Mojave. In case you are experiencing any problems, it's most likely because something went wrong during the update and you should try to fix your system.

Hi Mieze,

 

just wondering... is there any link aggregation support with this kext under High Sierra/Mojave? TIA!

Yes, the driver supports LACP. I successfully tested it in combination with a Realtek RTL8111E using my Realtek driver.

I've had an annoying problem for quite some time now, but it only happens when downloading so I've lived with it. Everytime I downloaded large files with Ethernet for example 20gb game from GOG and left the download running and came back the computer had restarted. I noticed that when Safari is downloading for a long time the computer goes to sleep and reboots. I haven't had any problems with sleep previously, only when downloading.

 

So I noticed today you had updated the driver and gave it a try and it seems to have fixed this problem with Z270N WiFi board. I just wrote this to say thank you Mieze and maybe someone is googling the same problem and finds this helpful.

Thank you for the feedback. I received a similar problem report form from vit9696 but I neither can reproduce the issue on my test system, nor do I have a conclusive explanation for it. 

 

Instead of that I noticed a strange behavior of the power LED during sleep on my test machine. Although the system seems to sleep and wake properly, the power LED stays on in sleep state which indicates, that the machine doesn't manage to complete the transition to sleep state (S3) completely. This never happened before updating to Mojave and it indicates that there is a general power management issue, which may also be related to the crash.

 

Anyway, it would be helpful if you could provide me a kernel panic report of the machine showing the incident? Are you using Gigabit Ethernet for your LAN? How fast is your internet connection?

 

I also attach the prebuilt binary (requires Mojave) to this post so that anybody interested in testing version 2.5.0d0 of the driver or having the same problem can try it too. It should also fix the no network after wakeup issue that some users with LM-versions of the NIC reported in the past, as it doesn't release control of the chip during sleep anymore

I had time do this today. Can you PM me email address where I could send these files? On the Zip I added kernel log (2.4.0 debug version), KP file and screenshot of Ethernet.

 

On the kernel log 4.12.2018:

 

17:04 Restart

17:06 Sleep/Wake

17:07 Started the download

17:25 Monitor shuts down when computer goes or tries to go to sleep and then restarts.

 

I haven't had that sort of problems with power led. Connection is 250Mbit/s. File was about 23Gb and download speed about 11Mb/s. Don't know if it was just GOG having a temporary hiccup but with the 2.5.0 I compiled I got around 20Mb/s about an hour ago.

hey Mieze,

 

 

there is a problem with this driver and static IP.

it seems to kernel panic once a day around 00:20 every day if the IP is static, works perfectly with DHCP

 

thanks

Please delete system caches and see if it resolves the issue.

First of all, if you don't know how to clean the system caches of your Mac OS version, ask Google.

 

Second, there is no driver problem with static IP addresses because address handling is far beyond the scope of a driver. The driver handles packets, nothing more and nothing less. In case it continues to crash, fix your system.

First booting into osx, open terminal and enter the following command.

 sudo kextcache -i /

press enter then enter your password if required. That should clean your cache.

@millusions i experience the same problems. Crash reports looks identical.  Not nearly as often as you. It can go weeks without a problem. 

But I use dchp, and still get the problem, so like @Mieze says; Its not a problem of static ip vs dchp. 

However i also use a schedule to sleep. So that we do have in common. 

I could think it is somehow related to power management. 

 

Kext version: 2.4.1d1

OS: Mojave 10.14.2

motherboard: asus rog strix z370-g

 

Hope you have some suggestions @Mieze ? 

I can obviously supply crash reports, if needed, but they look identical to those of @millusions

I219V doesn't have such joy :(

 

Safari is working, but vst plugins couldn't reach to the ethernet card for some reason in Sierra.

Hi, please excuse my lack of knowledge since this is all new to me. When I go and look at the system report (brand new MacBook Pro 13") the kext listed under the ethernet cards section is /System/Library/Extensions/AppleUSBECM.kext.  Does this mean I cannot use this driver? I am having the problem where it says my cable is not plugged in after sleep. Thanks for your help!

  • Mac OS 10.14.3

Issue:

My issue is that my wired network will work fine and then immediately stall. For example, if I go to fast.com after rebooting my Mac, it will jump up to an OK 25Mbps. If I try to run the test again, it will go as high a few Kbps and then fail to complete altogether. Any test is the same—a download starts fast and then stalls, a Youtube video starts playing, then stalls. This stalling will continue until I restart the system altogether. Once I restart the system, it starts over the exact same. I've tried installing the IntelMausiEthernet.kext to the EFI partition as well as to the L/E path with the same result. This happens for both internet and local network activity. I've tried reinstalling, verifying that the IntelMausiEthernet kext is installed, verified that the correct hardware is present in the system report, and verified that the internet works without issue from the BIOS (downloaded firmware update without issue). I've went through the BIOS settings and disabled/enabled items based on the feedback through this mega-thread. I'm not really sure what to try next. Thanks in advance.

If the problem is limited to a certain service, a driver error can be ruled out. At first glance looks more like a firewall or routing related issue. Is MSS clamping configured properly? What about the firewall rules? Are all required ports accessible?

no firewall turned on. works fine on windows but not OSX so not a router issue. where do i set MSS on OSX? Google just has windows links. no specific ports turned off, again, works fine on windows, not on mac. Gatekeeper disabled, Wow and Battle.net added to accessability, what im guessing is going on is the same thing that was described on a previous page (Here), where downloading large files craps out the connection... but the fix file you listed was Mojave only. im running High sierra.

Hey again,

 

pretty much certian that what i was mentioning in my previous message is whats happening. files will download for a few min, then stall, then start again. would compiling 2.5.0d0 for high sierra potentially fix this?

I compiled the 2.5.0d0 listed on Github, compiled under High Sierra, and installed. and now i have no internet connection at all. (copied kext into /l/e, sudo kextcace -i /, delete connections under prefpane, reboot) and even more strangely, after reinstalling the one i had that WAS working, i still can not get ethernet back up and running without reinstalling OSX completely from Ground up. im pretty confused.

      Hi guys, I'm new to the world of Hackintosh. I write in this section because I have a problem with the graphics card of my laptop. As far as I understand from the web, it is not possible to use a dedicated graphics card on a laptop. So I'm trying to use the integrated processor one. The problem is that I have tried various procedures seen online, but in spite of this I cannot solve the problem. If you need this is the equipment of my laptop:

      Asus VivoBook Pro 15 N580VD-FI038T

      Screen: Led 15.6” 16:9 (Ultra HD 3480x2160).
      Chipset: Intel HM175.

      Graphics Card: INTEL HD Graphics 630 + NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 4 GB GDDR5.
      Hard Disk: SSD M.2 512 GB SATA 3.0 + SSD 750GB.
      Ram: 32GB DDR4-2666.
      Audio: audio stereo Harman Kardon.
      Webcam: webcam HD with integrated headphone.
      Lan: Intel LAN 10/100/1000, Wi-Fi 802.11ac (2x2), Bluetooth 4.2.
      USB: 2 x USB 2.0, 1 x USB 3.0, 1 x USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 1, 1 x HDMI, 1 x LAN RJ-45, 1 x jack
      Slot: 1 x SD.

      I hope there is someone who can help me with this problem

      KX AUDIO DRIVER MOD
       
      Hi guys i am a small developer, i really like to use my sound blaster cards on my machines and i love also coding, so when i find the source code for the kx audio driver on git hub and then Eugene, the creator of kx audio driver decided to no longer maintain the project, i decided to start working on a mod of this driver and maintain it. 
       
      With my mod, created starting from the sources of the last official version of kx audio driver and all the small commiunity updates, i am working to keep the driver compatible with the latest mac os versions and to improove the driver over time.
       
      Supported cards are:
       
       - most of the Sound Blaster live!, live! 5.1 and live! 5.1 digital series (except for the cards not using the 10k1 architecture)
       - sound blaster pci 512 and pci 256
       - Sound Blaster Audigy, Audigy 2 and Audigy 2 zs series
       - E-MU cards based on the 10k2 sound chip (like the EMU8852 aka 0404m, including the pcie version)
       - Sound Blaster Audigy 4 (SB0610 only) and the Audigy 4 pro
       - Sound Blaster Audigy RX (SB0155)
       - other creative and e-mu cards based on the (10k1,10k2, 10k2.5 and CA10300 based cards)
       
      The NOT supported cards includes (but are not limited to):
       
       - ES1370/ES1371/ES1372/ES1373 based sound cards
       - Any CA0106 based card and cards with similar architectures (like sound blaster live! 24 bit, sound blaster audigy SE SB0570, audigy LS and similars, but audigy SA is supported)
       - Any sound blaster x-fi (some of them works on macOS using a modified version of voodoo hda)
       - Any sound blaster recon3D
       - Sound blaster Audigy FX
       - Any sound blaster Z/ZS/ZX and similar series
       - Any sound blaster AE5/AE7/AE9 series
       - Any sound card without an emu sound chip
      - Any ISA Sound card
       
      In the time being the things i have modded or added with this mod are:
       
      - cracking and stability fixes
       
      - added a more proper support for the pci express Sound Blaster audigy rx SB0155 (which basically is an audigy 4 with a pcie bridge chip) 
       
      - more user-frienly names for the cards in the settings and other system menus (so the name will be, for example, SB live! 5.1 SB0060 instead of kx SB0060 [e880] witch was shown in the original driver)
       
      - added support to sample rate changing and bit resolution change (the absolte worst supported quality is 7 khz at 8 bit dept while the absolute best is 192 khz at 32 bit depth)
       
      - inputs support
       
      - added boot args to manage the driver (more info on those soon)
       
      What i'd like to implement but i don't know how to do:
       
       - fix the support when using more than one card, to get all the cards shown in the settings and other menus,
       
       - have the gameport/midi port of older cards to be used in mac os as a midi in/out
       
      If other developers would like to join and help they are free to do so, this is a free open source project afterall, and also an hand from other people with testing and feedback will be nice.

      The laptop in question: Acer TravelMate 8472 TM8472 (Model: ZQ3) (refer to the "Spoiler" at the end if you want the machine specs)
       
      "So what are you bugging 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 a no backlit display 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 video 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) The microphone port always sounds like it is going through a [dirty] guitar effects petal no matter what sliders are adjusted  
      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 turns off 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 Microphone In sounding dirty - me being lazy with the audio drivers LAN (BCM57760) - I dunno...  when I search it, nothing comes up...  
      "How did you get this far?"
      Update the BIOS, this is oh so very important (refer to the battery section of the "Spoiler" for the reson) PLEASE BACKUP YOUR BIOS FIRST! PLUG THE MACHINE INTO THE AC ADAPTER/CHARGER! DO NOT FORCE THE COMPUTER TO SHUTDOWN NOR REMOVE THE BATTERY NOR UNPLUG IT FROM THE AC ADAPTER/CHARGER WHILE IT IS UPDATING! I WILL NOT BE HELD LIABLE FOR BRICKED MACHINES! So it will boot off of the (Niresh) Mac OS X 10.8 with no changes to anything "Awesome" but you may still need at least a USB mouse "Aww" If you have the option to remove the display drivers/kexts otherwise it will not to boot or not display If you forgot this, breathe "You think that's air your breathing?"... anyways... during the bootloader, go into single user mode [ -s ] and follow the on screen instructions to allow for modifying the files. You will want to PREFERABLY create a folder where Mac OS cannot read them and move the IntelHDGraphics Kexts into it You are likely going to need an external USB keyboard as well now that it is installed Now install the described Kexts in the "Spoiler" associated with the hardware to get more functionality and loose the USB HICs  
      Any help pertaining to the Bluetooth, WIFI, LAN, bizarre brightness and wake after sleep backlit display 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 no nVidia with i5 laptop...
      (Attached are non-modified extracted DSDT DSL and AML files "with errors according to DSDTEditor" for reference of the machine with a Phoenix BIOS version of 1.28 (07/20/2011))
