A router and high-speed Ethernet adapter enables your business to share a broadband Internet connection between multiple computers and share files and printers on the network. In the 1990s and 2000s, Fast Ethernet adapters and routers capable of file transfers of 100MB per second were the standard. However, modern network cards like the Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit adapter, which comes integrated on many high-end motherboards, are capable of gigabyte, or 1000MB per second, transfer speeds. To obtain the best network performance from a Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit adapter, though, you may have to optimize advanced settings for the card in Windows.

1.Broadcom

Navigate to the Broadcom support website (link in Resources). Download the latest driver for the NetXtreme adapter and save the file to your computer.

2.

Press 'Windows-E' to open File Explorer. Click 'Downloads,' and then double-click the setup file for the Broadcom NetXtreme Ethernet adapter. Follow the on-screen prompts to install the new driver, and reboot your computer when prompted.

3.

Open File Explorer, and then click 'Computer.' Double-click 'System Properties' on the ribbon bar, and then click 'Device Manager' after the 'View basic information about your computer' window opens.

4.

Scroll down to and double-click the 'Network adapters' header in the Device Manager list. Right-click the Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet Adapter and click 'Properties' on the context menu.

5.

Click the 'Advanced' tab in the Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet Adapter Properties window.

6.

Make the following changes in the Advanced Properties list:

Set 'Flow Control' to 'Rx & Tx Enabled' Set 'Jumbo Frame' to 'Enabled' Set the 'Receive Buffers' value to '512' Set the 'Shutdown Wake-On-Lan' value to 'Disabled' Set the 'Speed & Duplex' value to '1.0 Gbps Full Duplex' Set the 'Transmit Buffers' value to '128'

The Receive Buffers and Transmit Buffers values set buffers sizes to maximum. The Flow Control setting allows the Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit adapter to use its hardware controller versus relying on Windows to manage data flow. Enabling the Jumbo Frame allows the card to send and receive much larger blocks of data and reduces CPU usage. Setting the Speed & Duplex setting to '1.0 Gbps Full Duplex' forces the network adapter to send and receive data at its fastest transfer speed. Finally, you should disable the 'Shutdown Wake-On-Lan' feature, as allowing Windows to manage power features for the Ethernet card can slow performance.

7.

Click the 'Power Management' tab in the Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet Adapter Properties window. Remove the check marks next to the 'Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power' and 'Allow this device to wake the computer' options. Click the 'OK' button, and then close Device Manager.

8.

Restart the computer and connect to the router or switch as you normally would.

Tip

  • If you want to check the transfer speeds between the computer with the Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet Adapter and the router, switch or other PCs on the network, download and install a LAN speed test application such as LAN Speed Test, NetStress or NetMeter (links in Resources).
Xtreme

Warning

  • If your router or switch does not support Gigabit Ethernet connections (1.0 Gbps,) then your Broadcom NetXtreme Gigabit Ethernet Adapter will not transmit at its fastest speeds. If the router or switch does not support Gigabit Ethernet, set the 'Speed & Duplex' value in the Properties window to '100 Mbps Full Duplex.'

      Hello Mieze,
      Here are the results of my testing:
      First i used an SSDT to inject my i211 and give it the i210 device ID (8086,1533). This appears to be what the driver looks for as it only has an IOPCIPrimaryMatch value in the info plist. after a few tries the SSDT appeared to work and IOJones showed the correct 1533 device ID. The driver did not load however.
      Leaving the SSDT in place i then went about creating a FakePCIID kext. I based it off the 'BCM57XX as BCM57765' kext that is packaged with FakePCIID. Once I got this working, i then saw both network controllers. EN0(i219) and EN2(i210) -- not sure where EN1 went but thats probably not relevant.
      Both controllers showed as loaded everywhere i checked--
      -System Profile showed them both under Ethernet devices, with the proper kexts associated (i211, reported as i210 with AppleIntelI210Ethernet loaded, and i219 with intelMausiEthernet loaded.
      - Network utility showed both devices and EN#
      - DPCImanger showed both devices under its network list
      - IOJones seemed to show both fully loaded with a lot of details under each entry
      - and there was a new entry for 'Ethernet 2' in System Preferences>Network
      However despite all this the i211 port would only show as inactive in system preferences and never showed any sign of life when connected to the network (other than physical LEDs blinking). Furthermore (and very perplexing to me) with I210 'enabled' my i219 controller was also not working. It also showed a red inactive status in network preferences when it should be connected. Another odd thing is that Network Utility seemed to report activity for the i219 (though not the i210) but there was no way to get the OS to otherwise recognize either controller as connected let alone passing traffic.
      Removing the FakePCIID kexts brought my i219 back to life but now i am back to square one.
      Thoughts?
      Thanks!

      Following thread http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/292117-broadcom-bcm57781-how-do-i-patch-the-kext-for-ml-1085/
      was imposible find instructions patterns refered by @Mieze using 'Hopper Disassembler' on AppleBCM5701Ethernet.kext(ver: 10.1.2b3)
      One user on this post: http://www.hackintoshosx.com/files/file/4270-kextstopatch-clover-broadcom-bcm57781-for-yosemite-1010-1012b3/
      claim that is posible patch on-the-fly with Clover but I can´t not find his HEX´s pattern on AppleBCM5701Ethernet binary.
      Any light on this?

      I have successfully installed OS X Mavericks onto my Asus Zenbook UX302LA laptop and have almost everything working, except for the following:
      Not Working:
      Wifi( Intel N 7260, Device Instance Path: PCIVEN_8086&DEV_08B1&SUBSYS_C0708086&REV_6B4&33C43F56&0&00E3)
      Two finger scroll
      Touchscreen( Unknown driver)
      Brightness Controls
      Below, I have attached the driver for the N 7260 on Linux, which can possibly be ported to Mac OS X. If the driver cannot be ported, I could add my device ID somehow. If this is all not possible, then I suppose I could use one of my PCIE WIfi cards from another computer.
      Thanks.
