Onboard LAN not working

I have an ASUS P7H57D-V EVO motherboard and the onboard LAN has suddenly stopped working.

It started this morning when I couldn't get an internet connection in Ubuntu. Booted into Windows 7 and didn't get a connection there either.

I tried other ethernet cables and still no connection. I then booted up my HP computer and that got a connection fine.

Then somehow I got a connection on my computer but got home from work and it's not working again.

I've plugged in a USB Ethernet adapter I've got and it works fine under Ubuntu, so there's nothing wrong with the cables or my router.

Is this board faulty?

  1. It is not uncommon for a built-in lan to go faulty.
    Get yourself a 10$ pci lan and you will be fine.
  2. i agree with kik, sometimes on-board lan just frys out. lucky its not expensive to buy a stand alone PCI 10/100 Ethernet adapter (lan) card. 10-20 dollars tops. dont be fooled by those ones that brag they can increase your speed but cost twice as much. they work the same.
