Hi,

 

normally I use WiFi. Yesterday I learned that the notebooks ethernet adapter is not detected.

I notmaly did not load special drivers and last time ( some time ago) ethernet worked.

I have checked the systems prefs and there is none detected. I have tried diffrent intel ones out of the edp package but non worked.

 

Any suggesteions?

 

Please assist.

Centrino (in those days) meant Intel mobile CPU + Intel Chipset (Northbridge/Southbridge) + Intel Wireless card. That did not include wired Ethernet interface. Besides, that'll have nothing to do with Ethernet card being detected and/or operational or not. Only Intel wireless cards are unsupported in Mac OS X. Some Intel wired Ethernet interfaces are fully supported.

 

If you can do an lspci -nn command in Terminal and confirm the very model of your card, we can look into it.

Hi Herve

 

here is the info:

So its a Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5755M Gigabit Ethernet PCI Express [14e4:1673] (rev 02). Is there a kext that I should use?

 

Thanks for your support.

It's the same LAN hardware as fitted to the D630 (and D830 I think), so you can just download the D630 bootpack and grab the kext from there. But I would have thought it was already provided in the M4300 bootpack.

In that case, it's probably as I thought: a 32bit kext only...

 

I checked my D630 nVidia under ML and Mav, i.e. in 64bit mode. The kext is definitely 32/64bit and loads up Ok. I have the Ethernet board reported in Network Pref Pane.

Try the attached, but I'm pretty sure you'd get the same file out of the boot pack.

Hi,

 

Ethernet seems to work on Mavericks. So I will not invest more time on ML and wait for Mavericks to work.

 

Thanks for the help.

I'm running ML 10.8.5 on my M4300 and the ethernet is working; after a lot of traffic, however, it drops out and requires a shutdown/boot up to fix.  Note that I primarily use a D/Dock and its ethernet port (right now, in fact).  But the D/Dock just extends the lines, to the best of my knowledge; lspci isn't working for me at the moment (gives a cannot find any working access method error).

 

My /Extra shows that the EDP svn version I'm using is 701; that is actually from when I upgraded Lion to ML (with lots of issues of apps getting put in /Recovered Items, argh!) 10.8.3 and running EDP then.  I've not been able to successfully update EDP since then; reinstalling and then re-running just produces the same blank window I've seen reported as with Mavericks (by you, in the thread https://osxlatitude.com/index.php?/topic/5568-mavericks-on-m4300/ )

 

I've also had other issues, mainly frequent kernel panics on boot (it'll KP twice, then boot up ok for a while).  I've also seen booting from the USB installer stick bringing up a black screen, but the very next boot, without changing any boot parameters, it will work fine).  i've seen this with two separate M4300's, so I don't think it's my hardware, but I reserve the right to be wrong.  Since I dual-boot CentOS 6 (64-bit) and that works perfectly fine, I'm further convinced that the hardware is fine.  CentOS is actually my primary OS on the laptop, but I do some audio production that requires OS X tools, and so that gets me in OS X at least once a week.

 

My install started life as a 'leppy700m' boot disk install of 10.6.0 on an M65, upgraded to an EDP install (back early in the EDP 5.x cycle), changed to a D820 (motherboard/GPU failure), upgraded to Lion and through 10.7.5, then changed to the M4300 (by doing an EDP build for M4300 on the M65/D820 and swapping the HD to the M4300 and rebooting, which worked fine), then upgraded to ML 10.8.3, and finally a combo update to 10.8.5.  Whew.  Yes, I'm getting ready to do a scratch install on a new drive.  I said that to say that it's quite possible my install has' issues' from the upgrade chain, and a fresh install may be very different.
