Atheros - ALXEthernet Shailua's port of the Qualcomm Atheros alx Ethernet Linux driver.

Atheros OSX driver originally coded by Shailua based on “Unified alx driver strategy attempt for Linux and FreeBSD”, at https://github.com/erikarn/alx with additions by Zephiris.


ALXEthernet.kext works with the following models.

  • AR8131
  • AR8132
  • AR8151
  • AR8152
  • AR8161
  • AR8162
  • AR8171
  • AR8172



v 1.0.3

Displaying actual adapter model in System Profiler instead of “ALX Ethernet Driver”

Displaying ‘ethernet” in name field instead of adapter model

Fixed memory allocation and which lead to freezing

Number of RX/TX descriptors reduced due to latency reasons

v 1.0.2

Bug fixes that should help clean up memory allocation problems at boot time

VLAN is now possible for anyone that needs it, but I've only tested it minimally

v 1.0.1

Bug fixes and refinements.

Manually setting the link speed should work properly now and might be an option if auto negotiation is causing issues.

The link watchdog timer should generally be working better now.

Changed some Linux code that was automatically enabling MSI-X interrupts on newer chips.

v 1.0.0

The initial release. Don't be fooled, it's likely very unstable!
