[Solved] No network Atheros 8151, how to switch drivers after multibeast 8?

I'm so confused. Yes, I got the system working but without internet.

I'm trying out kext drivers.. But when I installed the e2200 that came with Multibeast 8 .. nothing happened. Its in the /library/extensions directory but are these files loaded?

In the past installations kext files were just situated in /system/library/extensions. Now I see there is yet another folder with kext files: /library/extensions. What is the difference?

And if they were loaded but simply didn't work, how do I remove it? I have a Atheros Ar8151 ethernet card. The system profiler says that there is no network device in the system. But there is..

Also, when exploring, I found out that the same Atheros e2200 kext driver is put on the drive's EFI partition. Do i need to remove that one as well?

Thanks in advance

I Fixed this by downloading the ALXEthernet kext from the downloads section of this site and put it in /System/Library/Extensions

After rebooting voila: The mighty internet was available for me!
