Hi, there I've just installaed the LAN drivers for my GA-8IEXP mobo. It has a doble entry in the BIOS: one to enable the onboard LAN chip (and that is enabled, of course) and one to enable the LAN boot ROM. What does the latter do? I had hoped that it wuold have sped up the booting of the PC (it is soooooooo slow now that I've enabled the LAN) but it was not so. Should I leave it on, or... cheers, Peltio the manual says nothing about bios settings The only manual with the advanced bios setting I have is for the 8irxp and has nothing about integrated LAN. : ( More about : onboard lan boot rom Anonymous a b V Motherboard November 11, 2004 12:47:45 AM Archived from groups: alt.comp.periphs.mainboard.gigabyte (More info?)
