So I had my hackintosh up and runing with everything completely fine however but one thing that wasn't working. That is the ethernet. I did some reasearch and took inspiration from this post to get the ethernet working:

However, where-ever I tried to find it, RLC8111 was not available, not in the Kext list provided by tonymacX86 nor anywhere online to be available for download, hence I am stuck at a stalemate, is there a way to help solve this issue???

Also, Side Note: I did read and all but the moblie and optimus and all really confused me, so I am asking again sorry, but is there a way to get the gtx 960m gpu working on this hackintosh?

and you probably won't get your nvidia to work as optimus is not supported on macs

I have same laptop, the kext is working on 10.14.2 (S/L/E)
I will try asap thanks although, last time when I tried an RTL8111 kext it didn't work :( so I wasn't sure!!

Edit: It is working, thanks a lottttt like it means a lot thank you!!

One last help if you can as you have the same llaptop, is there a boot args which will disable nvidia graphic cards from the boot, coz rn I have to go to bios and switch to internal grpahics every time I turn to mac!
