HELP! Mobo not picking up ethernet


I have a GA-970DS3-F4 motherboard, i have tried to connect it to my router and no lights on the motherboards port arent flashing and nothing was being picked up

  1. I would contact gigabyte, might just be a faulty port and if its still under warranty they could replace the mobo.
  2. As a test, try connecting the network cable to the modem instead of the router.

    Look at the network connections in the control panel. What's the status of the LAN connection?
