I am also sure it was the right jumper!!! The LAN is probably toast, no doubt, but for the great majority it appears to be working fine. If nothing works it could indeed be that the NIC is shot. Sorry to hear about your ongoing problems. Initially specified production test routines don’t necessarily disclose all critical parametes for specific application scenarios.

That’s simply your “firewire” adapter, and it is a network device, which is why it shows up in that area. I do know that the LAN did work initially, then quit, and I still haven’t figured out why.

However, I still have a suspicion that the addition of the Gigabit Lan was a fix rather than an originally planned design feature. I think windows is confusing the IEEE device for the gigabyte lan adapter. Have you tried these Intel drivers?

My best guess is that it is a resource conflict. Is the jumper on the board properly set?

Gigabit Lan on Asus A7n8X-E not registering.

I’m running the final. Any unknown devices showing up in the device manager? I tried uninstalling this net adapter and turning off the IEEE device in the bios and also disconnected the cables from their sockets but the gigabyte lan adapter is still not being reconized by windows.


Any observations or suggestions vnidia be most appreciated. I tried to update the net adapter using the marvel driver but windows refuses to load them reporting that cuerrent driver is is the closest match. The fact that it was replaced would suggest that it had its problems too comments anybody?

TechSpot is dedicated to computer enthusiasts and power users. I’m gonna try a different BIOS revision though, any chance you could check and let me know what rev you are running?

Any chance there is an option in the BIOS to enable the gigbit ethernet controller?

I’m wondering if it’s the same with mine, but mine is just periodic, not constant. The fact that yours gave a few initial twitches, together with the phenomena reported by others makes me mvidia that the chip in question has some marginal characteristics. Do x7n8x already have an account? Perhaps Shiney could tell me if his Gigabit controller advertises its presence anywhere – even if the LAN is disconnected. Ironbasher, Thanks, I’ll definitely let you know what I find, if anything.

Just registered to say I have the exact same problem as Ironbasher.

I suppose it’s still under warranty. I only copied the text from that forum where I found the info.

On my non -E this works great. If nothing works it could indeed be that the NIC is shot. In any event, thanks for the suggestions. I have the same board and i am using the marvel lan, the onboard nvidia lan is disabled. I am also sure it was the right jumper!!! As far as backward compatibility, the Marvell adapter should work fine without any tweaking on any nvidiw, it just adds the ability for the faster transfer.
