Snow Leopard, Dell 755, No Ethernet


Recommended Posts

I am having an issue... I've installed Snow Leopard on a Dell Optiplex 755... It loads fine, but no Ethernet. Therefore I can't run EDP.


It's been a long while since I worked with MAC OSx (my school district is a windows world). I have no idea where to begin troubleshooting this.


The PC and Network show activity in the lights, but the OS won't connect to it.

The Optiplex 755 is one of our desktop systems that's been integrated in EDP. Our OSXL bootpack does include the necessary kext for the LAN interface. Did you use our method to install Snow Leopard (i.e. myHack installer + bootpack) ?


Should your LAN NIC still be undetected/unavailable, check the identity of you built-in LAN interface so that we can point you to the appropriate kext. It will require to be added to /Extra/Extensions and you'll have to run myFix (full) to repair permissions and rebuild cache afterwards.


Secondly, you won't go far with the on-board Video chip; it's the unsupported GMA 3100 if I'm not mistaken, so you need an add-on PCIe x16 supported card to get full QE/CI.
