Typically, some timing parameter is on the the limit making the whole thing ultra sensitive to the slightest variations in software, timing of associated circuitry or physical conditions. All suggestions gratefully received – especially one that works! But even if my assumption concerning backward compatibility is wrong, why doesn’t the presence of the Marvell Gigabit controller show up somewhere? XP will not find the driver, but if I reinstall it from the disc it works fine I just have to reboot again after reinstalling.

Already have an account? Sorry to hear about your ongoing problems. Personally, I have given up – unless somebody comes up with some entirely new insight. I’m wondering if it’s the same with mine, but mine is just periodic, not constant. My best guess is that it is a resource conflict.
My symptoms are exactly as stated by Ironbasher.
Gigabit Lan on Asus A7n8X-E not registering.
I do know that the LAN did work initially, then quit, and I still haven’t figured out why. Found this on the web: I have the same board and i am using the marvel lan, the onboard nvidia lan is disabled. On my non -E this works great. At the moment, I am using a pin power connector intead of the preferred pin. In any event, thanks for the suggestions. As far as backward compatibility, the Marvell adapter should work fine without any tweaking on any network, it just adds the ability for the faster transfer.

Just bought the A7N8X-E board and had a similar problem. Initially specified production test routines don’t necessarily disclose all critical parametes for ncidia application scenarios.
The LAN is probably toast, no doubt, but for the great majority it appears to be working fine. Any chance there is an option in the BIOS to enable the gigbit ethernet controller? It is clear that even where the NIC shows some signs of life, precise installation procedures involving a long list of caveats are critical.
Nvidua suggestions gratefully received – especially one that works!

The gigabyte lan cannot be turned on or off in the bios it is activated by the jumpeer onboard ,but the Ieee device is switched in the bios. Join the community hereit only takes a minute.
Yes, I have tried the jumper in both positions just to be sure see my original posting. However, Nviria still a7j8x a suspicion that the addition of the Gigabit Lan was a fix rather than an originally planned design feature.
A7nx8, so they got away with it in most cases! I suppose it’s still under warranty. Any unknown devices showing up in the device manager? The fact that it was replaced would suggest that it had its problems too comments anybody?
In trying to fix the problem, I have disabled all unused hardware in the BIOS — in an attempt to free up resources.

Ncidia am also sure it was the right jumper!!! That’s simply your “firewire” adapter, and it is a network device, which is why it shows up in that area.
