Motherboard Ethernet shutting itself off?
May 19, 2010, 7:22 PM
The Ethernet port on my mobo keeps shutting itself off. (also shuts off the green/yellow light that is on when the ethernet is active).
I have to manually reconnect the ethernet cable in order to reactivate my ethernet port.

Does anyone know what is wrong? Btw, I had crashed to a black screen before this happened.

Dig down into "Configure" in the Properties of your network adapter to the Power Management settings -- untick anything about letting Windows turn off the device to save power.
