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

I don't understand why you've compiled v2.5.0d0 from source. A zip file is posted on this thread. 

 

Few questions:

  • Do you install Clover UEFI/ESP?
  • If yes, install 2.5.0d0 in EFI/CLOVER/Kexts/Other instead of L/E

Uninstall 2.5.0d0 in L/E and repair permissions (you can also rebuild cache...) with KCPM Utility Pro: Here

@Matgen84 You've probably got a messed up system which prevents the driver to be linked properly against IONetworking. kext. In order to resolve the issue, clean the system caches (this is not the same as the kernel cache, use the search function to find out how to do this) and, after that, recreate the kernel cache.

FWIW, I was able to compile 2.5.0d0 with Xcode 9.x for usage on High Sierra. Make sure the target is 10.13, not 10.14. I believe the ZIP posted earlier in the thread is for Mojave only.

Correct! The binary I posted is for Mojave but you may build it for High Sierra too, provided you've changed the deployment target to 10.13.

Hello, @Mieze.

 

First, thank you very much for IntelMausiEthernet and for the patch for AQC107.  Both have helped me a lot.

 

Secondly, I have been using IntelMausiEthernet 2.5.0d for a few weeks and just realized that "Wake for network access" doesn't work with 2.5.0d.  Reverting back to 2.4.0 and it works perfectly.

 

Again, thanks.

 

Cheers.

I only comment what @Kazlehoff said. I've got no problems with your great kext. For now I use 2.4.0 on Mojave.

EDIT: *Nevermind* My network is performing flawlessly with 2.5.0d.  Turns out the SATA drive I was using was causing the issue.  I installed a NVME WD Black and my transfers are a steady 98-99MB/s with no system slow down.

 

Sorry for the false report, deleting the below info to avoid confusion for others.

for mojave. im on high sierra.

 

i got my ethernet issue solved on the new driver (seems to be happer on the EFI partition in efi/clover/other instead of /library/extensions

 

however, my issue is persisting. it may honestly be related to poster above me's issue... could we be looking at a particular issue with the z390 boards?

I ran some tests with version 2.5.0d0 of the driver and I haven't noticed any problems with WoL. It works as expected. You might want to clean the system and kernel caches. In case a driver isn't linked properly, strange things may happen. I've also seen this many times.

Just to follow up, you were 100% correct...

sudo touch /System/Library/Extensions

sudo kextcache -i /

 

Fixed my WoL issue.  Thank you for your time and sorry for reporting a false bug.

 

Cheers!

Hello and thanks for this kext.

 

Currently I am using IntelMausiEthernet.kext v2.4 in /L/E with a Z370 chipset (Gigabyte Z370 Aorus Ultra Gaming WiFi) which has the Intel 1219v2 adapter. I have a system definition of 19,2 and am running High Sierra 10.13.6 (17G5019) . I have to boot with the -no_compat_check flag to get the system to boot with the 19,2 definition.

 

Today I connected to the internet for the first time with this rig. I plugged in the cable with the system off and booted. When the system came up, I opened the Network manager and found the system was connected. I did not have to do anything to set it up.

 

After confirming the connection, I opened Safari and checked a few things to make sure I had a good connection (browsed to a few sites). After I closed the Safari window, I did right click on the Safari icon to quit Safari. I have never liked the fact that MacOS leaves apps running in the background after you close out the window. Shortly after I quit Safari, the system suddenly restarted. I'm not sure if the events were related or not. I used it for a bit after the restart, mostly some browsing at iTunes, and it did not happen again. This has never happened before since I got things configured, but I have also never been on the internet.

Is it possible that this had something to do with IntelMausiEthernet.kext v2.4? Should I be using 2.5.0d0 with the 19,2 system definition?

I have also recently changed my system definition from 18,3 to 19,2 because I have an i7-8700k. The 19,2 definition doesn't like High Sierra, thus having to use the -no_compat_check flag to boot. It is possible the restart is related to the change in system definition but I thought I would check here because the shutdown happened after using the IntelMausiEthernet.kext for the first time.

 

I don't have XCode installed, so if someone could post a .zip with 2.5.0d0 compiled with the 10.13 target for High Sierra I would really appreciate that and could test if that makes a difference or not.

Here is version 2.5.0d14 of the driver in which I reworked interrupt throttling control and merged all the configuration parameters into one dictionary in order to make things clearer. The attached binary is for Mojave but it should be possible to use version 2.5.0d14 on Sierra and High Sierra provided you build from source. As usual, source code can be found on GitHub!

 

The most obvious change is the implementation of a completely new interrupt throttling control adding support for all of the NIC's interrupt throttling mechanisms and allowing to set different values for 1G, 100M and 10M mode. Here is a short summary of the new configuration parameters:

  • maxIntrRate10maxIntrRate100 and maxIntrRate1000 define independent global rate limits for all of the NIC's interrupts for the three different speeds. It's some kind of master control mechanism for interrupt throttling as all interrupts are subject to this parameter. These values define the maximum number of interrupts per second. For example maxIntrRate1000 = 8000 means that the number of interrupts caused per second by the NIC in gigabit mode  is not greater than 8000, i.e. that there is a time span of at least 125µs between two consecutive interrupts. Values between 2500 and 10000 are permissible. One might think that high interrupt rates result in better performance but this isn't always the case. Selecting extremely high values will seriously degrade system performance as well as network throughput. Choosing values which are too low, will also have a negative impact on network throughput.
  • rxDelayTime10rxDelayTime100 and rxDelayTime1000 control a timer which delays generation of a receive interrupt until the timer expires. The timer is started on reception of a packet. If another packed is received while the timer is running, it will be reinitialized to the start value allowing packet reception to be batched. Timer values are given in microseconds with a valid range of up to 100µs. A value of 0 or greater than 100 will disable this interrupt throttling method. Be careful when using this parameter as it might delay receive interrupts indefinitely if you don't set a hard limit for the delay using rxAbsTime10, rxAbsTime100 and rxAbsTime1000 which are described in the following section.
  • rxAbsTime10rxAbsTime100 and rxAbsTime1000 also control a timer which delays generation of a receive interrupt until the timer expires but unlike the former parameter the timer won't be restarted when another packet is received while it is running. This guarantees the generation of a receive interrupt after a definite timespan even in situations when rxDelayTime10, rxDelayTime100 or rxDelayTime1000 would suggest further delays because packets are received in a continuous sequence. Timer values are given in microseconds with a valid range of up to 500µs. A value of 0 or greater than 500 will disable this interrupt throttling method.

Values chosen in the default configuration are based on speed tests I performed with Blackmagic Disk Speed Test over a SMB connection to my server. In most scenarios there shouldn't be any need for changes but you might want to adjust these settings in case you have an unusual network setup like gigabit WAN and experience problems exhausting available bandwidth.

 

 All users are encouraged to test the driver on their system. Good luck!

hi, mieze thanks a lot for the driver,

my build is

gigabyte Z390 M(not gaming)

i5 9400F

AMD RX 560

I installed Sierra on my PC and everything works perfectly except for the network, I installed the above driver that you have attached, but not working.

I downloaded Xcode and also the project from Github, how exactly should I build it for sierra, as I am no familiar with Xcode. Please tell me the instructions on how to do it!

help me out this noob! 

thanks a lot!

hi mieze 

when i try the target os as 10.12 and click build, there's an error which says the object file was built for newer osx version than being linked (10.12)

is there any solution

In case you want to built for an older version of macOS, you'll have to use the corresponding version of Xcode which includes the SDK for that OS and select that OS version as deployment target.

I believe this is not an error, but only a warning.

You are right and it should work this way too but it's usually best to use the matching SDK. Since Apple adopted this update or die mentality, they don't care for backward compatibility anymore.

But I use Xcode 9.2, which fully supports sierra but it still shows me this warning!

help me out!

      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.

      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.

      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.
