Broadcom 440x 10/100 help please!

Recommended Posts

hi i tried to get my driver for my Broadcom 440x 10/100 i did the following.. I copied IONetworkingFamily.kext to

 

/System/Library/Extensions/

 

Then opened a terminal

 

And typed

 

sudo chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext

 

sudo chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/ IONetworkingFamily.kext

 

sudo kextload -v /System/Library/Extensions/ IONetworkingFamily.kext

 

 

Then pasted the

 

following into a Terminal:

 

 

sudo rm /System/Library/Extensions.mkext

 

[This forces the system to re-examine all of the drivers and rematch during the

 

next boot cycle.]

 

 

When I rebooted

 

I went into System Preferences => Network and it freezes there….ethernet doesn’t work either. What am I doing wrong? Why is network freezing?

 

 

Thanx
