Subsystem ID is always coming after the Vendor ID.
Since you didn't follow exactly my guide I can't control your offset values.

Follow my Guide and post the related offsets completely here.
It is necessary that the subsystem ID is 000a, otherwise the Smalltree driver will not work with it, that's why you change your 0000 Sub ID on your X772 NIC to 000a.


Wait a second... Your Motherboard use a 1 Gbit NIC... not 10 Gbit.
I also know X772 NIC's which are 10 Gbit NICs....

1 Gbit NIC Driver would be this one but this will not work since the It doesn't work via SUB System ID. It will only recognize Small Tree branded Intel PRO/1000 cards...

There are other methods which could work but I have to try some stuff which is a bit complicated without the motherboard itself.

Where do you come from ? Europe ? USA ?

It does not work via SUB Sytem ID. The Small Tree kext never loaded.
Thx anyway.

Of course it doesn’t work with your:

I am sorry, it is a typo... It shoud be X722.


Good news!!!


My Motherboard is EPC621D8A .

As I said in Post 9 before you did the chages…

1 Gbit NIC Driver would be this one but this will not work since the 3.9.0 doesn't work via SUB System ID. It will only recognize Small Tree branded Intel PRO/1000 cards...

I am full of hopes when have a chance with your post.

I am sad now...😭

But I also gained some knowledge about network cards from you, which makes me happy. 😄

I am sorry to bother you again.
I find no solution to make my GBit card work on google. I had try many times.

Can I only write the driver myself based on the open source linux source code?

Do you have any idea?

I think a better route is to install a compatible Network card. As your Motherboard have plenty of PCIe slots, it should be easy!

Thx for ur reply.

In fact I have compatible NICs and have an obsession with the hardware on the motherboard。

Well, if there is no support, it would be just waste of time.

That's interesting. Luckily, that spare build is running the latest version of Catalina and the Broadcom Card is replaced with the Intel WiFi. I checked the AirDrop feature and it works like a charm.

Do you see AirDrop function is that broken after using the patched Kext for Ethernet?
To come back to this, yes, AirDrop doesn't work when the 'patched driver' is being used on the system.
That's why I tried this method.

I know there is a command line code to force AirDrop on all network ports, but after reboot you have to do it again.
So I was looking at a permanent fix.
