[HOW TO] Solve the instability of Supermicro X9DAi ethernet (Intel i350)

1 post in this topic

Recommended Posts

Patient: Intel i350 ethernet built into Supermicro X9DAi motherboard.

Symptoms: constant disconnects on upload (files to FTP / sending emails w. attachments / using services like dropbox or wetransfer / browser uploads / ... ), so only restart helps.

 

Treatment: edit info.plist of AppleIGB.kext (wherever u use it) and change the NETIF_F_TSO key under i350 dictionary to false:

        <key>i350</key>
        <dict>
            <key>CFBundleIdentifier</key>
            <string>com.insanelymac.driver.AppleIGB</string>
            <key>IOClass</key>
            <string>AppleIGB</string>
            <key>IOPCIMatch</key>
            <string>0x15218086</string>
            <key>IOProviderClass</key>
            <string>IOPCIDevice</string>
            <key>NETIF_F_TSO</key>
            <false/>
        </dict>

Restart your machine and enjoy full power of your ethernet never ever crashing on large packet upload.

FYI I use hnak's AppleIGB kext (5.3.5):

located at CLOVER/kexts/10.10 on my system's EFI partition.

      This is a dedicated thread about the intel 8255X based ethernet cards which, although being old (but also very cheap and easy to find used online), they still works in the latest macOS releases today i tested mine with the 64 bit compiled AppleIntel8255X kext and works like a charm! stable and withou any issues with mine 100 mbit managed ethernet switch and also without suffering of problems like connection dieing under heavy load or sleep/wake issues, so just to report that i have create this dedicated thread about and also i leave the kext as an attachment, in this post, this may be usefoul to have cheap working ethernet for hackintosh machines running the latest macOS or just to reuse old hardware some one can have laying around.

      I have started this thread to discuss about old and very cheap ethernet cards working in the latest macOS releases, cards who just uses old ethernet controllers or are new and cheap cards with old ethernet controllers, this thread is just to discuss about such cards and also to have a list in the first post with reported working cards with drivers linked.
      To contribute you have to report which card of this kind is working for you and which driver or method you followed to get it wo work and also which issues you have, and then it will be added in the list.
      I start reporting cards which worked for me, yours will be added in the future:
      intel 8255X based cards:
                just works using the AppleIntel8255X kext (look in the attachments) and seems to be stable with no issues
       
      And also there are some cards i am curious to see if can work with mac, so i leave this part at the end of the post, do you know if it's possible to get realtek pci (not pci express) ethernet cards working in the latest mac os? i have a few of them and i have difficulties fining drivers for mac, having a driver for the latest mac wil help me in creating also a youtube video with the cheapest hackintosh compatible ethernet cards

      Hello,
       
      I am currently using El Capitan with an Asus Maximus II Formula, but the mainboard has a weird bug that the system freezes when im using the built in ethernet ports. (not only in macos, also in linux and windows)
      ... so i was using a USB Dongle wich worked fine, but the performance (USB2) was not the best.
       
      Now i want to add a ethernet-card to the system.
      Is there a cheap, and simple to install (maybe native?) PCIe Ethernet Networkcard that can be recommended?
       
      thank you
      greets
