Can anybody say what is your device ID? Mine one is 14e4:1692. If you are unsure how to find it, right click 'IONetworkingFamily.kext', select 'Show package contents' ->'Contents'-> 'Plugins'. Here in the 'plugins' directory you will find 'AppleBCM57001Ethernet.kext'. Right click it and select 'show package contents'-> select 'contents' and open 'Info.plist'. Open it with a text editor and scroll down to the last.Try to find IONameMatch key and there you can find the device ID.

you can go to windows and find a corresponding device id for your device. I have tried many kexts but could not find a suitable one and this next also does not has my device-id in the list.
