No network with RTL8139 installed

I have RTL8139 which works perfect in Windows but in OSX it doesn't even appear in Network configuration. Tried to install drivers from Realtek site but, obvious, no luck. "Kext installed improperly".

 

Please help. Thanks in advance

First of all, the drivers you downloaded are probaly PPC drivers not x86 so they wont work anyways.

 

Secondly, check which chipset of 8139 you have. If it is 8139(A) it wont work.

 

Check and get back here

The Info.plist has:

IOPCIMatch

0x813910ec 0x13001186 0x12111113

 

So it matches, if it appear as EN0 the kext is loaded, just need to configure in the System Configuration Network Preferences Panel, maybe you need to activate it.

 

I have a SMC 1211TX NIC which is RTL8139 compatible and works fine, Vendor ID 1113 DeviceID 1211, but I deleted Built In Ethernet and leave only PCI Ethernet Slot PCI0
