Open the Device Manager and look for any {? or !} listed devices. I assume you installed the Chipset drivers (generally do those 1st). Use the latest drivers for the ASUS P8Z77-V LX - http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_1155/P8Z7...

The very latest Realtek NIC drivers- http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads/downloadsView.aspx?...

Try to [x] Delete the Driver software, reboot and re-install. If you have any third-party Firewall then Disable for now.

Also make certain you have a CAT-5e/6 (non-crossover) cable connected, and if possible flip the cable around.

Q - What LAN lights, if any, do you see? (colors)

i dont have an ethernet cable like that, im trying to connect to our wireless modem, (we dont use cables in our house) we all use wireless and it would be hard to get a cable in my room.

i installed my chipset driver, audio driver, lan drivers, and usb drivers. (from the cd that came into the box, and i manually updated them to the latest.

First, the MOBO's NIC is not wireless and if the 'wireless' is not a 'Wireless Ethernet Bridge' then it won't work.

Q - What EXACT Device are you connected to? ; I prefer a link.

Wired:

MOBO's NIC -wired CAT5e/6-> (PowerLine)** /Wall Plugs/ (PowerLine)** -wired CAT5e/6-> Motorola's Ethernet ports (1-4)

Wireless:
MOBO + (WiFi Adapter)** -wireless-> Motorola WiFi
MOBO's NIC -wired CAT5e/6-> (Wireless Ethernet Bridge)** -wireless-> Motorola WiFi

**Requires additional purchase.

i am using wireless so i wouldent need to purchase anything else? it's a standard modem of telenet( our internet provider, my dad and my mom both have macs and they work , it also worked on my laptop without a problem, same for other 2 brothers.. only having problems with my desktop

Wired Ethernet LAN

You can connect any PC with an Ethernet LAN port to the SVG1501 Ethernet
connection. Because the SVG1501 Ethernet port supports auto-MDIX, you can use a
straight-through or cross-over cable to connect a hub, switch, or computer. Use
category 5, or better, cabling for all Ethernet connections.

Or anything else, with built in wifi adapter?

i took some pics, and I DONT want to use wired i want to use wireLESS ( not meant in a bad way :D ) here are teh cables



the white one is for our digital tv, the black one is the power cord, and the big white one is also for the tv, our modem just sends a signal but i still have this freaking sign..

at the right hand corner.. sigh this is depressing lol..

Trust me I've tried them all, my choices in order:

1. Wired ; period the best
2. PowerLine ; speeds are very good, low latency, and rock solid bandwidth

3. WiFi Card with GOOD antenna (N or newest 802.11AC draft)
4. Wireless Ethernet Bridge ; used them PITA to configure

Watch the video I posted.

Again, what's the MOBO's NIC connected to??
June 28, 2012 3:28:56 PM

well it's says the adapter is not connected ( when it is because i am on the internet right no?) as far i know i havent plugged anything ethernet related into my mobo.. also looked trough my manual but i dont think i need to plug anything in my mobo for it..
June 28, 2012 3:31:03 PM

it also show's me this:

One, like this one. Best I've had and still have.


I wouldn't get any PCI wireless card anymore. Get instead USB, it has more power, faster reconnecting times and longer distance coverage.

I have Amped Wireless UA600 and after I got rid off my Linksys PCI card for this, What a difference that is. (I had this one and 2 others ... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...)

No more disconnections, PCI device slows down the boot time too. When I start the PC, type the password, and click on tom's HW shortcut, it is displayed in a second!

With that PCI (had 2 more to try) it started to connect after log in and it took few seconds.

Love it! My wife's iPad has about 6 networks to connect, I have about 40!

Linksys had about dozen.

Also this USB has 2 USB connections, for better strength, as it supply more power.

Most equipment manufactured over the past 8-10 years has automatic cross-over, which makes patch and cross-over cables interchangeable. Only one endpoint needs to support auto-MDI for it to work, which makes things even simpler.

With auto-MDI/MDIX, patch cables and cross-over cables are interchangeable. It does not matter which one you use, the ICs at both/either end automatically detect it and adjust accordingly. If only one end suports it, it detects whether or not internal cross-over needs to be enabled and switches it on if necessary. If both ends support auto-MDI/MDIX, the two endpoints negotiate which one will switch to internal cross-over if necessary.

Unless you have "ancient" devices, there is no need to stock patch cables nor worry about accidentally using cross-over cables where patch cables "should" be used. Either can be used anywhere the other can because it is pretty much certain that at least one endpoint supports auto-MDI/X, most likely both.

The OP is dealing with a (cheap) mass produced Telco/Cable Router...so better safe than sorry. However, the OP assumed the NIC was Wireless so nothing is plugged into the MOBO's NIC.

Motorola's modems are perfectly fine at least as far as wired connectivity goes and the auto-MDIX in nearly all gateways/routers is provided by a monolithic switch IC that operates independently from the rest of the modem/router, which makes it nearly impossible for integrators to mess it up.

Of course, as great and ubiquitous as auto-MDIX may be, there is nothing it can do about a missing cable between the Ethernet port and the HPNA adapter.

The OP's Router does support it, I still don't recommend those cables and nothing you're going to post will ever change my mind to avoid them. Stick with either TIA T568A or T568B cabling and wiring -- less issues and less a chance of some oddball problem.

I practice 'smart' and conforming practices and not those that 'can' end-up causing issues. Reduce Potential Problems!
