91 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

I am using Asus p5b-deleuxe board/jas osx 10.48 resed.

 

I can run Sata(good performance on WD drive, sloooow on Seagate 7200.10) , Pata, sound(2ch) and onboard yukon (no jumbo frame).

 

The only missing working hardware is Yukon 8056 PCI-E, Realtek 8187L.

 

Anyone who know to make the missing hardware works?

 

Thanks

This question has been asked a couple of times, there is even a thread dedicated to this board, and a tutorial on it.

http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?sho...426&hl=asus

 

If your using JaS 10.4.8 your going to need the IONetworking.kext from 10.4.7, the one in 10.4.8 doesn't work right.

 

sudo nano /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworking.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleYukon.kext/Info.plist

search for "8053" (no quotes) and replace with "8056" (no quotes)

Then search for "4362" (no quotes) and replace with "4364"

save the file, repair permissions and reboot.

Hi

 

I has been followed your guide, but i still can't to use the yukon 8056.

 

In the network preference, it don't display the 8056 yukon. It only display the 8001 yukon.

 

I would like to make dual ethernet port works.

 

Please help

To get your Yukon 88E8056 Ethernet to work, you need to add your device id to the AppleYukon.kext. Go to Terminal and type:

cd /System/Library/Extensions											 <-- changes directory
sudo nano IONetworking.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleYukon.kext/Info.plist   <-- edits file

 (find and change: <key>Yukon-88E8053</key>)
 (to:			  <key>Yukon-88E8056</key>)	   <-- change "53" to "56"

 (find and change: <string>Yukon Gigabit Adapter 88E8053</string>)
 (to:			  <string>Yukon Gigabit Adapter 88E8056</string>)	   <-- change "53" to "56"

 (find and change: <string>0x436211AB</string>)
 (to:			  <string>0x436411AB</string>)	<-- change "62" to "64"

(press Control-O)								   <-- saves changes
(press Y and Enter)								 <-- accepts saving to existing file
(press Control-X)								   <-- exits nano

sudo chown -R root:wheel IONetworkingFamily.kext	<-- repairs permissions
cd /System/Library								  <-- changes directories
sudo rm -rf Extensions.mkext Extensions.kextcache   <-- rebuilds kextcache on reboot

Then reboot.

Thanks everyone...this worked for me in trying to get the Ethernet working on my Gigabyte 965P-DS4, which also has the Yukon Marvell 8056 (as a built in).

 

Just one thing though, the file I had to edit was

 

/System/Library/Extensions/IONetworking.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleYukon.kext/Contents/Info.plist

Sorry to say, I had no luck...tried it for 5-6 times with different IONetworkingFamily.kext

 

it's no problem to change the numbers from 8053 to 8056 and 62... to 64... then repair chmod/chown,permissions...

some IONetworkingFamily.kext have Yukon 1 and Youkon2 inside...yukon 2 is 11b or so and the yukon 1 shows 7 in info,

however only the Yukon 1 plug in has the 8053 so I did only corrected this one.

 

Has anyone a working LAN with intel 865 motherboard (using Yukon 8056) ?

Do I need to "replace" another file, too ?

This worked for me.

 

A couple things to clarify the instructions above for anyone new to this:

 

1) IONetworking.kext = IONetworkingFamily.kext -- I spent a lot of time trying to figure out where IONetworking.kext went only to realize it's also IONetworkingFamily.kext

 

2) After I rebooted, the card showed up under networking, but it said the cable was disconnected. My router also reflected that. After trying to figure out if I had a bad cable, I did this:

 

a) open a terminal window

c) sudo -s

;) ifconfig en1 down

d) ifconfig en1 up

 

HTH,

will this also work for 88E8055 ? :(

 

 

I'd also like to know this, because yesterday I tried to install OS X on my new laptop (Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Pro V3545) and my network and sound didn't work (haven't tried wireless yet, but I think it doesn't work either).

 

EDIT: It works for 88E8055 too. Now I just need to get WiFi and Sound working and I'll be happy. :D

any help for the 88E1116?

 

I know what you are doing with the first key, and the first string, but the second one where, you change some seemingly irrelevant hex "<string>0x436211AB</string>" I have no idea what that is, or how to find out what that would be on mine. Any help?

Hey Marvell, I've got a similar laptop to yours. Mine is the v3505 and after installation of osx 10.48 i get a black screen. Please can you help?

You're missing a few things in the path and targeting a nonexistent kext. A few seconds examining the extensions directory also helps.

everything worked on 10.4.8 :D ......then upgraded to 10.4.10 (uphuck, pascalw), now my network is wacked :P . I can surf the web, see one of my m$ computers, but not the other, and both m$ computers cannot see my Hack.

 

Been stuck on this for three days and I am going nuts. I also did the apple security update for 10.4.10.

 

checked the /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/PlugIns/AppleYukon.kext/Contents/Info.plist.....looks fine

 

when I go to fix an alias for the Network shares I get the network "greyed"out. If I get info on a network share the "fetching" just keeps spinning around.

 

uphuck 10.4.9 v1.3 + PascalW 10.4.10 Update
