Intel PRO/100 VE driver for 10.4.8 JaS?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been looking high and low for a good tutorial with the proper ktexts to support the Intel PRO/100 VE. My Device ID is 27DC and my Vendor is 8086. I have read so many sucess reports on getting the Intel PRO/100 card to function, yet I can't get this done.


I have read multiple threads over and over again and each one suggests a new solution. Does anyone have a proper tutorial on getting this Network Card to work on 10.4.8 JaS?


If this doesn't work, I'm going to end up installing some random PCI card just to get networking o.0. Only as a last resort but of course.


So please. Help?

Cara, bom achar um brasileiro. Estou na mesma pindaíba. Se achar a solução para as 27dc 8086 vou postar com certeza. Minha placa mae é uma intel 945gnt, chipsets 82801g e 945g/p.

Vou tentar algo e já te falo...
