ASUS P8Z68-V Pro GEN3 Ethernet wont work

Hey, I have just build a new rig and i go to hook it up to the inter net via Ethernet chord and it doesn't connect to the internet. The led on the front that shows you if your internet is on or off will sometimes flicker. I am not sure what the problem is. i have tried multiple chords and none of them seem to work but they do work on all of my other computers.

  1. The best thing to do is buy an ethernet card and plug it in.
    OR replace the motherboard with some other type.
    You are describing the "classic" asus defect.
  2. Geez, that sucks. does the warranty cover that? thanks for your help

    Try installing new drivers from ASUS website ?

    Off topic:
    Once I flashed a bios update on an expensive ASUS board, and somehow the MAC Address of the onboard LAN got zeroed. Worse yet, somehow when you plug in an external LAN, that MAC Address is also not recognized until the onboard was disabled in the BIOS. This was very frustrating.

    RMA'd with ASUS, and ASUS sent me back a board badly damaged during transit because they did not wrap the board, just tossed it in a paper box.

    Then RMA'd with ASUS again, they tried denying warranty, and finally relented and sent me a dusty looking old board. That board died 3 months outside of warranty...

    Classic ASUS
