That kext only supports

 

  • Supports Realtek RTL8111/8168 B/C/D/E/F/G/H found on recent boards.

 

My PCI network card is Realtek RTL8169/8110 so I don't think that will work with this card.

I also installed that kext and another one my same coder Mieze - RealtekRTL8100-Binary 2.0.1 in  /L/E
but none of them working, still shows no device in System report
Is it correct to install it into /Library/Extensions?

 

Any other suggestion or solution or why the installation of the kext is not working/loaded?

You'll also find lots of very old thread talking about poor or lack of proper support with kexts of some sort in Tiger up to Lion. Seems to be very old hardware.

You can put all 3rd party kext in EFI to avoid permission issue which might cause not to load.

For the ethernet, try AppleRealtekRTL8169. Look it up in download section.

 

yeah normally I put the kext in EFI>CLOVER>kexts>Other

but those two RTL kext didn't work so I thought it needed install the kext in either /L/E or S/L/E?

I place AppleRealtekRTL8169 in the EFI partition and now ethernet is working.
Thanks.

Download link for the kext

yeah...i found that kext in those links when searching that filename mentioned above.

yeah this is an old PCI network card... my onboard NIC is faulty so this is my only option
