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.

      Hey everyone,
       
      after years I come back to Hackintosh. In the early days I played with ozmosis and my good old 4700k. Now I'm back and worked around a 100% working setup with enough power to get me through all my tasks like audio, video cut etc.
       
      In this short tutorial I will guide you through BIOS Settings and give you access to my EFI Folder. This I do because I haven't found anything on the web for my setup. Maybe it will help some of you. When you follow the steps you will have a perfect running Hackintosh  like I do have now  
       
      I've chosen the iMac 18,3 because of the easy integration of both Graphic Units and the support of HEVC. 
       
      Specs:
       
      CPU: Intel i7 9700k (Overclocked in Bios to 4,7 GHz)
      SMBIOS: iMac18,3 (Because of Dedicated Graphics and HEVC Intel Support)
      RAM: 32GB G.Skill Trident Z RGB DDR4-3200 DIMM CL16 (XMP Profile to 3200MHz)
      Motherboard: MSI MPG Z390 GAMING PRO CARBON (MS-7b17) <- It's the model without WLAN/Bluetooth
      Graphic Card: Sapphire RX580 Nitro+
      Bluetooth & WLAN: Broadcom Card in PCI Adapter
       
      What is working: 
       
      Almost everything! All USB Ports, Intel Power Management, Bluetooth, WLAN, LAN, Intel Graphics HEVC, Boot/Reboot, Sleep
       
      What is not working: 
       
      Facetime & iMessage (Don't need it but I will come back to this)
       
      Steps:
       
      1. Create Mojave 10.14.5 USB Drive | https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CZDXxKfodE&amp;t=95s | Us this tutorial or search the forum
      2. Load my EFI Folder: https://workupload.com/file/zkJ4zdQk
      3. Go into your bios and use my settings in the Screenshot I attached 
      4. Boot from USB Stick | Install Mojave | Boot into Mojave (Check other Tutorials if you don't know how)
      5. Generate Serials with Clover Configurator
      6. Happy Hackintosh Life! 
       
      Kext I use:
       
      AppleALC.kext | Needed for Sound
      BrcmFirmwareData.kext | Needed for my WLAN/Bluetooth Card 
      BrcmNonPatchRAM2.kext | Needed for my WLAN/Bluetooth Card 
      BrcmPatchRAM2.kext | Needed for my WLAN/Bluetooth Card 
      CodecCommander.kext | Fix Problems after Sleep
      CPUFriend.kext | Perfect Power Management for my CPU
      CPUFriendDataProvider.kext | Perfect Power Management for my CPU
      FakePCIID_Broadcom_WiFi.kext | Needed for my WLAN/Bluetooth Card 
      FakePCIID.kext | Needed for my WLAN/Bluetooth Card 
      FakeSMC.kext | Standard
      IntelMausiEthernet.kext | Ethernet
      Lilu.kext | Standard
      USBInjectAll.kext | To fix all USB Ports
      WhateverGreen.kext | Needed for graphics
       
       
      If you have success with my little tutorial and EFI Build let me know! Hope you reach the desktop and will be happy!

      Being asked to add support for Realtek's Fast Ethernet PCIe NICs to my RTL8111 driver I got tired of answering the same old question again and again so that I finally decided to write a separate driver for these chips and to make a few of you guys and gals happy.
       
      As of now the driver supports the following members the RTL810X Fast Ethernet family:
      RTL8101E RTL8102E RTL8103E RTL8401E RTL8105E RTL8402 RTL8106E RTL8106EUS RTL8107E   Here is a list of the driver's basic features:
      Supports Sierra (maybe El Capitan). 64 bit architecture only. Support for multisegment packets relieving the network stack of unnecessary copy operations when assembling packets for transmission. No-copy receive and transmit. Only small packets are copied on reception because creating a copy is more efficient than allocating a new buffer. TCP, UDP and IPv4 checksum offload (receive and transmit). TCP segmentation offload under IPv4. Support for TCP/IPv6 and UDP/IPv6 checksum offload. Supports Wake on LAN. Support for Energy Efficient Ethernet (EEE) which can be disabled by setting enableEEE to NO in the drivers Info.plist without rebuild. The default is YES. The driver is published under GPLv2. Built using Xcode 4.6.3.  
      Changelog Version 2.0.1 (2018-05-10): Fixes a problem with retrieval of the permanent MAC address on some chips. Version 2.0.0 (2017-04-04): Uses Apple's private driver interface introduced with 10.8. Adds support for the RTL8107E. Supports packet scheduling with QFQ. Adds support for flow control and EEE. Version 1.0.0 (2014-05-24): First offical release.     Installation   Before you install the driver you have to remove any installed driver for RTL810X. Goto /S/L/E and delete the old driver. Recreate the kernel cache. Open System Preferences and delete the corresponding network interface, e. g. en0. If you forget this step you might experience strange problems with certain Apple domains, iTunes and iCloud later. Install the new driver and recreate the kernel cache. Reboot Open System Preferences again, select Network and check if the new network interface has been created automatically or create it manually now. Configure the interface.   Help - I'm getting kernel panics!
      Well, before you start complaining about bugs after you upgraded macOS and ask me to publish a driver update, you should first try to resolve the issue on your own by cleaning the system caches.
      As the driver uses macOS's private network driver interface, which is supposed to be used by Apple provided drivers only, you might run into problems after an OS update because the linker may fail to recognize that IONetworking.kext has been updated and that the driver needs to be linked against the new version (Apple provided drivers avoid this problem because they are always updated together with IONetworking.kext). As a result, the linking process produces garbage and the driver may call arbitrary code when trying to call functions from IONetworking.kext. This usually results in unpredicted behavior or a kernel panic. In order to recover from such a situation, you should clean the System Caches forcing the linker to recreate it's caches:
      Delete all the files in /System/Library/Caches and it's subdirectories but leave the directories and the symbolic links intact. This is very important! Reboot. Recreate the kernel cache. Reboot again.  
      Troubleshooting Make sure you have followed the installation instructions especially when you have issues with certain domains while the others are working fine. Use the debug version to collect log data when trying to track down problems. The kernel log messages can be retrieved with "grep kernel /var/log/system.log" in Terminal. Starting from Sierra use "log show --predicate "processID == 0" --debug" in order to retrieve kernel logs. Include the log data when asking for support or giving feedback. I'm an engineer, not a clairvoyant. Don't copy and paste large amounts of log data to your post. Create an archive with the log data and attach it to your post. In case you don't want to make your log data publicly accessible, contact me via PM and I will provide you a mail address to send it directly to me.  Check your BIOS settings. You might want to disable Network Boot and the UEFI Network Stack as these can interfere with the driver. Double check that you have removed any other Realtek kext from your system because they could prevent the driver from working properly. Delete the following files: /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/NetworkInterfaces.plist /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/preferences.plist Verify your bootloader configuration, in particular the kernel flags. Avoid using npci=0x2000 or npci=0x3000.  In Terminal run netstat -s in order to display network statistics. Carefully examine the data for any unusual activity like a high number of packets with bad IP header checksums, etc. In case auto-configuration of the link layer connection doesn't work it might be necessary to select the medium manually in System Preferences under Network for the interface. Use Wireshark to create a packet dump in order to collect diagnostic information. Keep in mind that there are many manufacturers of network equipment. Although Ethernet is an IEEE standard, different implementations may show different behavior causing incompatibilities. In case you are having trouble try a different switch or a different cable.  
      Getting the driver
      There is a prebuilt binary in the Download section of this site: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/259-realtekrtl8100-binary/ The source code can be found on Github: https://github.com/Mieze/RealtekRTL8100   Mieze
