This won’t be an issue if you don’t tinker with your computer’s innards a lot, but it is a design issue to be aware of. Has anyone figured this one out?

Taking into account your observation that problems in this area do not appear to be widely reported, I tend to agree with you that I probably have a dead Gigabyte NIC.

I’ve been trying to figure it out for about a month now, I dunno. However, as I said, the issue is not sufficiently important to me to start a serious campaign to get the otherwise excellent board replaced.

Gigabit Lan on Asus A7n8X-E not registering. – TechSpot Forums

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. These fan headers are a little close to the AGP slot. Happy weekend, and I’ll let ya know if I find anything worthwhile or otherwise. I personally find this feature questionable since there are many situations where you either don’t have speakers or work in a quiet environment.

At the moment, I am using a pin power connector intead of the preferred pin.

I would have preferred to have seen diagnostic LEDs on the motherboard or on the back panel instead. I’m not sure if this is related to the LAN problem, but I have two items in my device manager that still cannot find enough free resources to load: Asus decided to spend their value-add-ins on the software and on the aa7n8x-e network card.


Have you tried these Intel drivers?

The fact that yours gave a few initial twitches, together with the phenomena reported by others makes me suspect that the chip in question has some marginal characteristics. I have reloaded XP from absolute scratch clean drives, etcbut that did not solve the problem. I have tried the enable jumper on the MOBO in both positions, just in case they got it wrong in the book, but to no avail. I am also sure it was the right jumper!!! Their 3-year warranty is also displayed clearly on the back of the box but no other documentation included mentions warranty.

This motherboard may not have all the features that will tickle the enthusiast’s fancy, but it is an excellent board with great execution.

Is the jumper on the board properly set? It is clear that even where the NIC shows some signs of life, precise installation procedures involving a long list of caveats are critical. I find this extremely inconvenient and inefficient as a consumer because in order to adjust something as simple as disabling SATA, you need to not only switch the jumper to the appropriate spot, but also change the appropriate setting in the BIOS.

Ask a question and give support. I think windows is confusing the IEEE device for the gigabyte lan adapter. Could that be the problem? I’m gonna try a different BIOS revision though, any chance you could check and let me know what rev you are running?


Typically, some timing parameter is on the the limit making the whole thing ultra sensitive to the slightest variations in software, timing of associated circuitry adus physical conditions.

There is support for six USB 2. I hope this helps at least a little with those that have posted here, and if anyone has experienced the same problem I have, a7n8s-e let me know if you have found a solution.

Unlike the other motherboards in this review, there is no southbridge cooler, but there is a passive heatsink on the northbridge.

My guess is that somebody in ASUS knows all about this and that probably the problem has been cured i. How can I force windows to accept the marvel drivers in place of the asjs drivers for this device? Sign up for freeit takes 30 seconds.

Yeah, I still love the board too, lol. I installed the Yukon miniport driver that came with the MOBO and got an OK that the installation was successful – but that had no effect on anything.

The driver CD contains your array of driver files, but also includes a useful system monitoring tool “PC Probe” which is very well designed and uncluttered. Also, there are two fan headers adjacent to the AGP slot see image below which can cause problems with large videocoolers as well see image below. My symptoms lab exactly as stated by Ironbasher.
