In regards to an earlier post I made on there forums: http://forum.insanelymac.com/index.php?showtopic=83265


I have managed to actually get my D-link DFE-538TX recognized in iATKOS 1.0ir2 (still no luck with the Atheros L1).


Now, the only problem is that I cannot assign an IP address to my machine and I suspect it is because the Ethernet ID shows up as 00:00:00:00:00:00 instead of the address it should be.


I am able to get the system to recognize when a cable is unplugged or plugged in and I am just getting the default DHCP IP address.


What would cause this, could it be an incorrect kext installed? I choose the ViaRhine driver durring the setup, I've yet to try with the Realtek driver which seems to be working for some people.


How would this issue be resolved? If I were to manually edit the Ethernet ID, would I be able to finally have a working ethernet connect?


That raises another question, how would I manually edit the Ethernet ID address? I can't see any way to change this....


Sorry for all the posts but I am just so close now to have a 100% perfect install!! :D




Ok, I have finally figured out how to get the D-Link DFE-538TX Card to work!


I'm now using Kalyway's 10.5.1 as it seems to be quicker on my system than iATKOS.

Anyways, I remembered that when I had an AMD, I was using tubgirl's 10.4.10 release and I was using the same card in my system with no problems. So I took the ViaRhine.kext from the tubgirl release and installed it on my current system and well...I'm typing from Leopard now :)
