Please Help!: Ethernet Won't Work

Recommended Posts

After spending many days I was finally able to get Mavericks to work on my computer. As far as I can tell everything works fine except the internet. When I go into the network utility it says internal ethernet, but it shows that it's not working. Then I go into the network settings and try to make a new connection, but I can't select ethernet as an option. I looked up my driver information and it says my computer uses the Atheros driver, so I installed the Antheros kext on my computer via Multi Beast, but it won't work. I even tried installing different network kexts, but no matter what I do I can't get the internet to work. I've been working on this for many hours today and I just want the internet to work, so I can download Skype and a few other programs. Here are my computer specs if that helps.


Gateway DX4380-UR308

AMD A8 5500 quad core processor

AMD Radeon HD 7560D graphics

8 GB Memory


I'd be EXTREMELY grateful to anyone who is able to help me fix this. I'm so close to getting OS X on my computer. If I can just fix this network issue I'll be set.

Yes I did and that didn't fix it, but I actually found out my computer uses realtek, not Atheros. I installed the realtek kext and that didn't do anything. Then I found a different realtek kext and that kind of fixed it. I say kind of because I still can't get internet, but it shows ethernet in the network settings now, but it keeps on connecting and disconnecting. Like it will connect for 1 second and then disconnect. It keeps doing this.

It was the Kext I tryed!


As soon as I try to go to my network (connect to my NAS for instance), I see folders but after double click I don't have any window to give my credentials and window close. Finder seems to freeze ...


May be it's not related to the NIC?


I also have Safari who is sooooo sloooooww ...

Try booting in safe mode, (-x). Go into multibeast and select you network driver and apply the patch. If it still doesn't work, googl for a 3rd party one use the one suggested above by KhatPhat and install it using kext wizard. You could always try a USB to Ethernet adapter or a wifi dongle as a last resort but bar trying out different Kexts, I'm not really sure as to how you go about fixing that issue...

    • Hello! Yesterday I successfully installed Yosemite (Yosemite Zone distro) on my laptop (Sony Vaio FIT 15E with an i3-3217U). The only thing that doesn't work is the wifi card (BCM43142). I found in my house another wireless card, AzureWave AW-NB047H. Is this wireless card compatible with macOS?   Sorry for my bad english and thanks in advance. ~IOStream
