Has someone a kext for BCM5751?

Look for the BCM kext of D430/D620/D820. Make sure to use the Intel binary version, not the universal binary PPC&x86 version. It's been mentioned in several threads (there's a detailed post about this re: D430 installation). You'll find the kext with a forum search on "universal binary" or on "BCM5751".

All Zero MAC address tended to be obtained with universal binary kext, hence why you should use the Intel version. Post us the output of Terminal command lspci -nn so that we can clearly identify your LAN card (needs lspcidrv.kext loaded), but HP documentation does indeed clearly state BCM5751 10/100/1000BT Ethernet...


Is it enabled in BIOS?
