Hi everyone here!


I just get this beautiful OS installed a few days on this laptop... still looking for solutions to my minor hardware problems. (Yes usually called newbie or noob lol)


First i give model & description of this pc(compare if you got something similar or equal ;) ):


Packard Bell Easy Note V 5609 series

Intel dual core 1'66ghz

Intel GMA945G chipset

Intel ¿Realtek? HD audio (trying to get it working, just no sound lol)

Intel GMA945G 128mb Video Card

Intel PRO 10/100 VE Ethernet

Intel Wireless 3945 ( :P still waiting for a solution or driver)



To get the Intel 10/100 PRO VE NIC ethernet card i did:


1) Start Terminal

2) sudo -s

3) cd /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns <enter>

4) nano AppleIntel8254XEthernet.kext/Contents/Info.plist <enter>

5) under <key>IOPCIMATCH</key> Change the content to <string>0x10928086&0x0000ffff</string>


Next things to do:

(borrowed from this man: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?s=&...st&p=180550 ) You brought my NIC to life man.

6) nano AppleIntel8255x.kext/Contents/Info.plist <enter>

7) Under <key>IOPCIMatch</key> Add <string>0x10928086 0x10518086 0x27DC8086</string>

8) kextload AppleIntel8255x.kext <enter>

9) rm /System/Library/Extensions.kextcache <enter>

10) kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions <enter>

11) reboot


12) Enter into the System Preferences, configure the integrated ethernet and... get some fun with it


Note: this could be useless for you... this looks like a try&get an error lol.... its only matter of changing the IOPCMATH acording to yours (see it in windows or linux). This is explained better than i could tell it, at other topics of this forum ;)
