I have an ASUS Z77 Motherboard and when I install the AI Suite II which comes on the installation disc it blocks my internet connection. When I uninstall the software my connection is fine. I am using an Ethernet connection by the way. I think it is being blocked by the component called Network iControl. As soon as that component is uninstalled my Internet connection comes back. I want to have the software, but I also want to have my connection. Any ideas?

It's the first time I've heard of it. After a little research, it seems to be some sort of bandwidth/QoS control for the PC. Hard to imagine why anyone really needs this anyway. Is it possible the default setup turns off all internet connectivity until you configure it? Maybe as a security measure? Just speculating.
