Lnx2Mac's Realtek RTL81xx Driver Project Page Overview: Due to the shortcomings of the current Realtek 81xx Hackintosh drivers (such as lack of or limited support of 8111E, 32/64-bit, sleep issues), I endeavored to port the Linux RTL81xx driver to Mac OS X. Porting a driver is never a trivial task, but this one brought two interesting challenges:. Lack of documentation (Realtek provides it only under NDA). I didn't have access to a board with the 8111E I started this port based on Chuck Fry's 'Chucko R1000SL', and merging in support for new chips, from the Realtek Official Linux drivers (released August 31, 2010). RealtekRTL81xx.kext is the result of this work, and it fully supports the RTL8168/RTL8111 family of NICs. Over 80 members of the participated in 6 restricted beta cycles, testing it on several platforms, P55, H55, X58. I'd like to specially thank for his cooperation and invaluable help in alpha testing this (for several days, I would email him the driver, and he would reply with logs)!
May 4, 2017 - I had to download driver from here and install with./autorun.sh. With the following command I forced a random chosen mac address. Realtek realtek 8139 realtek rtl8029 realtek ethernet realtek 8139 driver realtek. For realtek rtl8139 realtek mac realtek support realtek lan card drivers realtek. Pci ethernet nic drivers realtek 8101l realtek fast ethernet adapter realtek rtl8139.
Support my work: As you probably understand, a lot of time and effort was (and is) spent on developing and maintaining this project. I plan to keep this Driver free and public for anyone in the Mac OS X community. If you like it, please consider helping. Making a donation is not required, but will be greatly appreciated!

I have a computer with the following characteristics: i5 processor with motherboard GA-H55M-S2 and VGA NVIDIA GT220 1GB PCI-E ASUS graphics card. Using multibeast for installation, I use a modified DSDT for my motherboard. Then I reset the computer and install the audio kext and your network kext. The audio works but the network does not work. In addition, the computer loads slow and the screen freezes.
So, I turn off by pressing the power button, wait 15 seconds, switch on and it boots up fine, but the network operates. If I turn my computer correctly, restarting is the same.
What I can do? Anonymous said. I posted a comment on Oct 8th, re WOL working only erratically. It's taken me a while to work this out, partly due to my lack of time, partly because I was completely on the wrong track! So the good news up front: WOL works perfectly for me with your driver! It turns out I had also updated the firmware of my Synology NAS, which I use as WOL gateway, around the same time I installed your driver.
And that apparently made my php script stop working properly (without any visible signs that id did!). So I still could do WOL from my iPhone from within my WLAN network, but not through my NAS from outside.
Realtek 8101l Driver For Mac
I'm sorry if my comment made you waste your valuable time, but at least take note that I have immediately posted my comment as soon as I found out the cause. Thanks again for your work! Wondering if ti would be possible to ask for support for the RTL8188s driver ( it is used for example in the A-LINK WNU(L),802.11n/g/b USB 2.0 that I just purchased that does not have native support for osx 10.6 yett but only for 10.4 and 10.5 and thoose are drivers from A-link, on Realtek homepage you can not even get the mac drivers at all for this chipset. I will be going back to my hack in two days from now with my MB ASUS P5K-PRO, using an ATI HD5750 graphics card.
I am very willing to act as a tester for such support in your driver. If you are interested you can mail me at trograin atgmail.com. Anonymous said. Hi, Great work. Using it on GA-P55M-UD2, performance better than Realtek R1000SL and original Realtek driver. Sleep working fine althought a bit more time to wake up than R1000SL.
The only missing feature is Wake On Demand which cannot be enabled either from Energy Saver Preference Pane ( checkbox is missing) or from '/usr/sbin/systemsetup -setwakeonnetworkaccess on' which is reporting 'Wake On Network Access: Not supported on this machine.' Any suggestions how to make it work? Anonymous said. Hi again, WOL does indeed work.
The problem is that 'Wake on Ethernet access' cannot be enabled because the relevant checkbox is missing in the Energy Saver Preference Pane. This is due to the fact that the driver is not reporting the right capabilities as shown when you try to manually enable the service with the '/usr/sbin/systemsetup -setwakeonnetworkaccess on' command. This command reports 'Wake On Network Access: Not supported on this machine.' This causes a problem on networks which relies on the Bonjour Sleep Proxy Server (e.g. Airport Extreme or Time Capsule) to wake up computers when a service registered with the sleep proxy server is accessed.
When this capability is implemented, the DNSResponder daemon tells the bonjour proxy server that the system is going to sleep before actually going to sleep which enables the Bonjour proxy server to carry on advertising the service although the host is sleeping. This feature works with the original 2.0.5. Realtek driver and iis the only way to wake up a host on a network with an airport extreme or time capsule router. Any idea how to make this work.

Had this driver working perfectly in a X58-UD3R R2. Then my main disk had an error that disk utilities couldn't fix, so I formatted and restored from a time machine backup. After reinstalling Chameleon and a few other things, I noticed my bonjour wasn't working anymore.
I uninstalled your driver and installed the 'official' one. When my system came back up my network preferences said that it was disconnected/no media. I wasn't able to fix this, so I pulled out that driver and reinstalled yours. Same problem! Any idea how to fix? I've tried booting without caches, rebuilding caches/permissions, etc, but no matter what it says that the network isn't plugged in. Wildschwein said.
One issue I had, probably totally unrelated to your driver, but maybe somewhat related to your post re. Optimal BIOS settings for a hackintosh: I followed the BIOS settings guide, and set all advanced CPU Core Features to enabled, including support for C3/C6/C7 states, plus XMP Profile1. After that, my network stopped working after sleep. I managed to isolate the problem, it's the C3/C6/C7 states support which breaks it for me. I have a GA-EX58-UD5 MB. Just in case someone else experiences the same problem, here's my bit!
Thanks again for your hard work! BilletHQ said. I run on GigaByte X58-UDR3 (2.0) The system worked fine but no sleep / no network.
Install realtek driver using multibeast, network worked until restart. Used your driver - had some double click issues - is this the USB thing people talking about? Sleep worked good though. None of the kext mentioned earlier in the extra folder. Repaired permission, built chaches etc. Yesterday I even had the little ethernet light going!
But then again, in computers it always worked yesterday. I've got the following issue with the network that I was told would be cured with your driver, but unfortunately it wasn't. The issue is that my network keeps disconnecting and reconnecting. Any outcoming request causes dropping of the connection and after some seconds it re-enables itself.
For example I open Safari, type an address, hit Enter and it says I don't have connection to Internet. After a while the page I requested reloads by itself and opens up. If I click any link on that page it would again show me a connection error page and then would again refresh itself and show the page at the link. System update doesn't work because of it, as it begins searching for the updates, but then shows an error. My system is ga-48-ds5 (8111C), C2D E8500, GF 9800GTX+, 4gb RAM.
Do you have any ideas why I am experiencing this? Thanks in advance! First off thanks for all the hard work on this set of drivers.
I have read through just about every page of this post and cannot find an answer for my problem. I have a GA-X58A-UD3R (rev.
2.0) motherboard and I used nawcomBoot CD to install osx on my system. I have gotten everything working including audio and graphics but I still cannot seem to get on board ethernet working. I have installed and re-installed the driver install package on this site as well as anything else I can find from other people with the same board. I have tried removing all my network related kexts and then reinstalling it to no avail and repairing all my permissions. All I get when I look in system profiler is 'this computer does not appear to have any pci ethernet cards installed'. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get ethernet working?
If there is another thread that deals with this can you please point me in the right direction. @Lnx2Mac yes I have checked to make sure it is enabled in the bios and I used the RTL81XX installer package. By all accounts it really should work now because other people with the same hardware have used the RTL81xx installer package and it works like a champ for them.
I guess at this point I should install windows on a seperate partition and make sure the ethernet nic isn't broken or something. Any other thoughts? Thanks for all the hard work.
When I get this working I am for sure going to donate:). Hi, I tried to install the Driver for my RTL8111C equipped Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R motherboard because I use a custom DSDT and when I overclock the system hangs on loading the Apple RTL8169e driver. But on standard speeds the system boots fine. However, the install of the Lnx2Mac driver fails (either through MultiBeast or on its own, and with or without the debug option). The routine appears to go OK but at the end I get this message 'The Installation Failed' Not sure why I have this problem Any ideas? Anonymous said. I've been having weird sleep issues with 10.6.6 and finally narrowed it down to WOL problem.
When I wake up the g31m-es2l board via WOL, it wakes up the 1st time. But if I sent more than 1 WOL packet, once the system goes to sleep it doesn't wake up, not via WOL and not by keyboard/mouse. I could send just 1 WOL frame while the system is awake, and the system wouldn't wake up once it goes to sleep. And if I send a single WOL frame while the system is asleep, it also works fine. Perhaps some int bit isn't getting cleared by the rtl82xx driver.

Would love to see it fixed in the next release.
