Ethernet Light Out? - Limited Connection

Recommended Posts

Ever since I have received my replacement motherboard from EVGA, I can no longer see the orange light on the Ethernet port, green flashes like a raped ape, but no orange. Could this simply be a driver error, also when I boot and everything loads it says limited connection, but then connects itself. Any clue as to how to go about fixing this?

Is it possible the adapter is set to half duplex ?  I would first reset the modem and the router, then do a reboot, that normally will fix it.

Alright I've troubleshooted, reset and restarted, and forced 100mbps full-duplex.

Still no lil orange light. Hmph, also I just after restarting because I cleaned out my Ethernet drivers and all the drivers needed for the system, found that it would not post, it would get to verifying DMI pool data, and simply freeze. I think I might be sending this motherboard back, Ethernet port doesn't work, Freeze while verifying, I don't know. What should I do.

:sad3:

I think the problem is in your router, do a hard reset on it. To verify this, just remove the router from the network for a minute, reboot everything of course.

No no, it does work, I get my advertised, I'm just having trouble connecting, I after getting it all together spent nearly three hours resetting the modem and waiting, Cat5 Ethernet cords, I have so many, I've tried two cat5, still the problem persists. :-|

so its purely with the acquiring network stage right? and it timed out until it says limited connection/no connectivity? it's somehow a problem with the router being unable to assign an IP address to that particular computer.. try the auto sensing somewhere on your lan properties. i used to have this problem with my linksys before.. :)
