Re: iMac network (BMAC) broken?


I've had this experience with my iBook, my iMac DV was unaffected.

If you check the output of ifconfig you'll see that only the "TX"
transmitting side was affected. You did not even say which version of
the kernel you were using. I reckon it is a 2.4.x-testx that you're
using. Switch back to 2.2 and you'll be alright.
