hi guys i gotta question!

i have a realtek rtl8319D ethernet card. the issue that im having is whenever i reset my computer i have to go into the network settings and then it detects that there is a "new port detected" and from there i can hit the okay button and get onto safari or now firefox! when i look at my network devices there are about 20+ network adapters. how can i change this so that i can just log onto os x86 10.4.6 and be connected automatically to the internt without making my computer find a "new" device?

i have a strange issue with a wireless card in my laptop. it thinks that it is ethernet.

 

when i went through the setup on a fresh installation, it knew it was a wireless card, and i was able to pic up signal and connect, but when i launch osx it does not allow me to configure the airport card, and none of the wireless troubleshoots that i have tried have worked. please help....

i think my question is very basic,

 

i cannot figure out how to change the active card to my ethernet. the MAC address always showing my wireless card eventhough my wireless card is off. im using NetworkSelector to turn on my wireless card.

 

my ethernet model is BCM5701. my laptop model is HP Compaq nc6230.

 

thanks guys.

Hi, everyone

Can anyone list the Dlink-Routers which are supoorted by MAC OS X 10.4.8?

and

I have read a forum saying that INTEL PRO/100 VE NETWORK CONNECTION is automatically recognized by MAC OS X 10.2.1. Can I get IONetworkingFamily.kext from MAC OS X 10.2.1?

maybe, maybe not but by supplying the appropriate kext with your specific dev/ven id intel pro/100 ve will be recognized by mac os ten without any other hacks regardless of version. works with 10.4.9 too ;)

Hi, I would just like to share that this kext:

 

http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?act...ost&id=7135

 

from this thread:

 

http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...255x&st=20#

 

allowed me to use my Intel Pro 100 S network card. All I had to do was un-rar the file and drop the kext into the appropriate directory, as per the included instructions.

 

cheers.

Same problem here! Acer extensa 5210 (broadcom 4311, ill confirm if this exactly this chip).

 

The weird thing is I can browse webs and so until the first reboot, then no more internet.
