what is your hardware? hardware is critical.


can you post the exact commands you enter in, and what exactly you are trying to do?


are you copying a kext into another kext? or both into the extensions folder? are you doing this from teh dvd or from leopard?

i have an asrock 775i65g mother board with onboard realtek 8139 ethernet controller


i tried to do what he pcgenrtl8139.kext info file said in its install readme.


but it doesnt seem to work ..


i dont have the ionetworkfamily.kext 1.5.1 i have 1.6.0 that came with the leopard install.


when i downloaded the 1.5.1 and copied it into extensions folder it told me that it was not installed properly and to reinstall.


i couldnt fix it and i reinstalled leopard (yikes it sucked doing it over)


now i just have the slow internet which is better than no internet.


but i would love to have my full speeds back it took me 25 min to download firefox ;)


i hope this is enough info? if you need more hardware specs let me know


thanks again for looking into my question :D

so .. stupid me,., i found out that i dont really have realtek 8139 , thats jus twas leopard tells me i have , my motherboard manual says i have a realtek onboard pci lan 8101l


so i tried installing the realtekr1000 drivers that were on here. and they installed but i saw no difference in speed. same old slow internet.


i dont knwo what i shoudl do.. maybe purchase a ethernet card that runs native?


does anyone have any info.. should i have done soemthign else before i installed that driver?


disabled other drivers?
