i have modified a bit the kext due to connection drops and slow opening of safari, chrome and discord apps.
modded:
a. OSBundledRequired' from "Network-Root" to "Root"
b. i210/i211 --> NETIF_F_TSO to "FALSE"

hope can help to those with connection dropped

Made some modifications to the source based on linux kernel. Seems to work ok so far. Been running with LAN only and WiFi disabled for some times and seems stable.

I added the kexts and nothing is disconnected as with arguments

no change, connection drops approximately after 15 second, also managing to reconnect by changing the parameters in network preferences

Could BigSure be giving this connection loss problem? Could someone else with BigSure do a check?

Minimum version it’s built to is 11.0 so should work. I can install Big Sur later on my test ssd and take a look.

Is this cleaned up version a update to the last cleanup and fixes that @Shaneee did last night?

You should explain better friends because you added the kexts, I restart the nmvram and nothing drops the connection. added the arguments in my config and it still only works for a few seconds

Works perfect for me Gigabyte X570 AORUS ELITE

by looking at your network preferences, the smalltreeintel82576 driver is already working, you do not need the appleigb driver

Sorry for the little delay, but I had urgent work to complete. And here's the kernel panic report.

@Arrakis It seems that's unrelated to AppleIGB.kext. It looks to be caused by AppleGraphicsControl.kext

To do the test, I have two absolutely identical EFIs just with the difference of kext for the ethernet ports.
The first with the I210.kext (works very well with BigSur by the way)
The second with the Kext AppleIGB.kext
With the first, the Monterey system is very stable. With the second one doing nothing, it's kernel panic for sure.
