i have a problem connecting to my network with with a lan cable.
im using my wireless card right now but i would rather use my mobos lan port.
my mobo is ASUS M3A79-T deluxe
when plug the cable into the port the leds dont light up or anyhting,
the led on the router doesnt aknowldge that anyhting is onnected either
when cable is in i cant , or i dotn know how to enable my pc to use that lan port.
I tried to update the Ethernet driver from asus but i fails to do so,
Lan is enabled in the BIOS
i cant find anyother option that would enable it.
if i take out the wirelesscard, windows cant detect anyotherhardware(it say" catn detect any wireless hardware to use to connect")
Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit
ASUS M3A79-T Deluxe
Phenom x4 9950 2.61ghz
i talked to ASUS guys and we figured it could be a software problem im planning on calling them again
Is there any other sub-menu in BIOS related to the NIC being displayed after enabling the onboard NIC? (Should be under Advanced tab->Onboard Devices Configuration)
Check all other settings in BIOS while you're at it;
If you're sure it's been enabled in BIOS and the problem still persists, flash your BIOS to the latest provided by ASUS for your motherboard, do a 'Reset to Default' in BIOS (you'll have to retune all settings again) and try again.
