My System Specs:
Mainboard: ASRock z77 Extreme 4
CPU: i5 3570k
GFX: ASUS GTX 460 (HD 4000 is the IGPU)
Memory: 8 Gig

The issue: No network devices show up

I Got 10.9 installed and working, but network is not working.
I Had network working on 10.8.3 using a kext that I can not figure out where I got it from. I tried installing the kext again for 10.9 but it does not work. Does anyone know of a working kext for the Broadcom BCM57781 on 10.9?

Please let me know if you would like to see boot log or anything and I can post.

I've been using that same kext to try to get mine working but couldn't. I have the same asrock z77 extreme4 motherboard on OS 10.9 with a patched BIOS (2.90).
For the most part I've been using stock BIOS settings with only the IGP memory turned down to 32MB. Are there some other settings I might be missing? I've gotten everything else to work and the networking is the only thing that needs a custom kext.
Also do I need to boot into safe mode to install it or not?

Install that kext with kext wizard, maybe repair permissions and rebuild cache with kext wizard too.

IvantheDugtrio - Where did you get the 2.90 patched BIOS for the AsRock Z77 Extreme4 board? I have only been able to find the 2.70 ... Also, are you having issues with sleep/wake? I have reinstalled several times and selected different options in MultiBeast (along with the patched 2.7 BIOS, but nothing seems to work).
