No double post on the forum please, especially if you double post for support matters in the Guides section!


I don't know what you mean but "error" given that you have no driver installed for your LAN card... According to your Aida64 report, it's a Realtek RTL8139/810x Fast Ethernet Adapter with PCI id 10ec:8136 so clearly a Realtek RTL810x card. It's not natively supported but it may work with this old kext that does cater for 10ec:8136:



Possible alternatives:

  • the RTL8139 driver mentioned here with a patch to add id 8136 or change id 8139 to 8136 (but chance that it'll work is low)
  • Rehabman's oldish RTL8169 kext available here (will probably need same patching too and agin, low chance that it'll work)


Failing that, Google for an OS X/macOS driver for 10ec:8136. Good luck.


NB: you appear to have a Haswell/HD4x00 laptop so you can remove AppleCpuPmCfgLock kernel quirk, it applies to Sandy Bridge/Ivy Bridge platforms. Also, unless your laptop is fitted with quad-core CPU -but you've not bothered to post your system specs-, you should use MBA6,2 or MBP11,1 SMBIOS.
