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.

      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.
      Cpu: Intel Core i7-7700HQ (2.80 GHz / 3.80 GHz, 4 core, 6 MB CACHE L3).
      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))
