    Default Slow internet with RTL-8139/8139C/8139C

    Howdy all,

    My Mac OS X is running fine, I've got currently everything working and all the kexts I needed are installed, however. My internet connection is pretty slow. Software Updates are taking years, Its not going higher then 2 KB/S.

    My ethernet device:
    02:0f.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL-8139/8139C/8139C+ [10ec:8139] (rev 10)
    Is there a tweak or hack needed to resume my internet speed on Mac OS X?

    Thanks.

    Sorry. Forgotten to patch my kext.

    For people with the same issue, please follow this:

    Download this file

    Open terminal:
    sudo su
    rm -R /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins/AppleRTL8139Ethernet.kext

    cp -R <path to>/PCGenRTL8139Ethernet.kext /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins/

    chown -R root:wheel /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins/PCGenRTL8139Ethernet.kext

    chmod -R 755 /System/Library/Extensions/IONetworkingFamily.kext/Contents/Plugins/PCGenRTL8139Ethernet.kext

    touch /System/Library/Extensions

    shutdown -r now
    Thanks.

    Thumbs up Thank you

    My friend you are my hero. When I began my search it became obvious I needed the PCGen kext, however it was not clear where it went or even how I was going to get it.
    This post was a one-stop-shop to get my dl speeds from 1-4k and pings from 59-3000ms (pinging local router) to 350k and 0.72ms
    Bless you
    Now back to searching to fix the USB issues!
