Asus Crosshair V Formula Z LAN issues

So I just installed my custom loop and leak tested all night last night. I didn't notice any leaks besides when my dad accidentally filled the reservoir too much, but that was about 7hrs before I turned it on. after turning it on for some reason I couldn't connect to the Internet. everything else seems to work besides the ethernet port. When I try to trouble shoot it through Windows I just get a message saying that the driver isn't properly installed. I uninstalling all my drivers and reinstalled them. I still have no Internet. What's causing the problem?

  1. Is it the latest driver from the mobos web page? If not try that, might also want to reset your modem/router, then if nothing run through the network setup wizard

    Okay I just now restarted my router. I'll see if that works. Well I tried the Intel Gigabit driver, the latest one, and that didn't work. It said it couldn't detect an Intel LAN controller. I'm thinking of updating the BIOS.
    Btw what do you mean by network setup wizard?
  3. Try the BIOS upgrade....Win has a network connection wizard that will help you connect

    I tried using the EZ Flash Utility and it said read integrity failed. Oh okay, I'll try that now.
  5. Let us know

    Where is the network setup located? Maybe it's called something else on Windows 7? :pt1cable:
  7. Start > Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center > Set up a new connection or network

    It says it doesn't detect any networking hardware.
  9. How bout in Device Manager, anything in Network adapters?

    Nope, nothing. I don't even see a section for Network Adapters.
  11. Try Start > Control Panel > Device Manager > click on Computer (once just to highlight it) > click up top on ACTION > SCAN for hardware changes

    if it doesn't find anthing then do the same but at the last step click on ADD LEGACY HARDWARE instead of the SCAN part, and follow the steps

    well I can't find my network adapter under the list it provides.
  13. Get he latest driver, click on computer to highlight, then up to Action, add Legacy, next, Install hardware I manually select, next, next, network adapter, next, HAVE DISK

    well I go into the folder where the driver is and it's not showing up. All I see is authors, Apps, PLATFORM, PRO100, PRO1000, PROXGB, and Autorun. The Autorun file didn't work. Its just setup information or at least that's the file type.
  15. Are those Pro100, Pro 1000, ProXGB files or folders, may have to go into the individual folder

    Yeah they are. What would the file type be so? Just wanna know so I know what I'm looking for. Haha
  17. Hi,

    Tradesman1 has you on the right path here:

    If you cannot install the drivers for whatever reason:

    1) Can you take a screenshot of Device manager for us and upload it here? The Network controller should be there, or even be listed in the tree as a device (even if it has an issue)

    2) Unless you are on Windows 8, you defintely need to install the Intel driver packagefor the Ethernet controller (there are no embedded drivers in Win 7 for the Intel NIC used on this board). Your driver CD would have had the drivers on them so that should have got you up and running at least. Did you run the install CD at any time - the driver package would have appeared in the list? Of course downloading the driver from the ASUS support page for your motherboard is a better bet as the drivers have been updated.


    As for the UEFI flash read integrity failed message: Use a FAT32 formatted USB flash drive and it should accept. NTFS parttions on USB flash drives dont have legacy support, so the EZ flash module won't be able to read the file.
  18. Thanks Raja for jumping in, I'm following a ton of threads and have to be on-site all day for a network install

  21. Did you find out what the problem was I'm having the exact same issue sane board no network adapter is showing up in device manager running win 8.1
  22. Check if it is enabled in UEFI. It should show up at least...

    Shows up in bios as Intel 52583 but nothing in device manager tried on win 8 and 7 asus recommends rma underway Thanks
  24. I just ran into this. I had accidentally got the button on the back that resets the bios. The ethernet card was disabled, so the OS couldn't see it.
