I followed this guide and got my 10.11.6 build up and going almost flawlessly. The only major piece that still doesn't work is the ethernet. According to this guide, it should have just worked out of the box, practically, from what I've seen. I haven't seen anyone have problems with it like I am having.
When I plug the ethernet cable in, the LEDs on the port light up as if it were working, but the OS doesn't recognize it at all. I am using the ethernet port that is not the problematic one by the USB ports.
Where do I start for troubleshooting this? Thank you.
Assuming you're using the same motherboard as listed on page 1 of this guide, the ethernet port above the USB-C port does not function properly. You need to use the other ethernet port - that one works perfectly.
Just wondering what the best way to get wifi going on the GA-Z170N-WiFi/ GA-H170N-WiFi boards is? Does a USB adapter work fine? I already use the PCI for GPU btw.
Did you replace the motherboard's wireless card? The Intel wireless card that the motherboard ships with is not compatible with OS X. You need to purchase and install the Broadcom BCM94352Z wireless card. Then you'll need to install the requried kexts in step 15 of the Post-Installation Configuration section of this guide.
My WiFi and Bluetooth work great with the Broadcom BCM94352Z card so long as I use the motherboard's included antenna, otherwise the signals are too weak.
its not big deal to to install the Broadcom BCM94352Z,just remove the screws and 2 wires,just be sure to connect the wires again
