Looking at Info.plist I didn't see a PCI ID match for BCM57781. Can you add that? PCI ID 14e4,16b1. Thanks!
i have a problem with BCM57781, its detected as well, but wont get DHCP ip
ragae, curious if it works with a static ip?
what do you mean stock IONETWORKINGFAMILY.KEXT
My BCM57781 only get static ip. Cant get DHCP.
Thanks. works on machines e510. Mac OS X Lion 10.7.4
Thanks for your work but i try on Packard Bell EasyNote TS-11HR with 10.7.4 and the network not work. in prefs panel is all ok, but when i connect on internet or on local network don't work.
I try to use static ip with the same results. Can you help us?
p.s. stock IONETWORKINGFAMILY.KEXT is the original kext in comboupd.
I only made this fix so OS X can see my built-in ethernet and mac address. I use wireless and I can confirm this driver is no good because even when no ethernet cable is plugged in I get private IP address. best thing to do is to rewrite the driver so it supports more broadcom chipsets including this one. All this fix will do is help you get into mac app store and do other things that rely on the ethernet MAC address.credits still go to adlan why don't you try and contact him, find him on github
Where do i get that file?
"stock IONETWORKINGFAMILY.KEXT is the original kext in comboupd"

I've only the original LionInstallerApp 10.7.4.
Is it possible to get this file on its own?

Best regards
Detect but dont get the DHCP... Its give me a wrong ip... Fix?
