I've just built my first properly working Hackintosh, sound worked off the bat, boots and shuts down to problems, but the Ethernet is a no go, following an old thread I found out I just need the Atheros1cEthernet.kext, however in the download section I can only find the newer version called "AtherosE2200Ethernet", will this version work or do I need the older version? If so does anyone know where to get the older one?

Probably a stupid question but I'm new to this and don't wanna screw anything up! Thanks for any help!

Ohh cool! Thanks for the help, now I've got another question, how the hell do I even install these? I've tried a ridiculous number of methods and none of them have worked?
