    My answer I know is not related to the router but to the motherboard as ive had this problem before but managed to accidently stumble upon the answer this time im not having that luck
    Also I had this issue with a modem previously and this time i found a site with what seemed to be the exact drivers for my modem and indeed the modem was working but it wouldnt connect; thats when i finally convinced my previous isp that I needed a router..........

  • oggmeista Sep 17, 2008

    Hehe yeah I did all this but i need to know which driver im needing thank you for responding so quickly

  • oggmeista Sep 18, 2008

    Not sure how to find this out and erm I cant get online with that machine .

    But thx 4 trying again)

    PS Im getting absoloutley nothing after posting this at the asus forum..........

  • oggmeista Sep 18, 2008


    Well following on from what u asked dogcatbyme and checking the board itself couldnt find anything but checking the DOS screen on start up I found this:

    Award BIOS V6.00PG
    bios 601
    Asus M2N4-SLI rev 1.026

    So I followed the link you gave and found this driver:

    nforce4 AMD SLI

    im now downloading it, though im not hopefull this will sort it, as I have been on the asus site downloading all the necessary drivers but its worth a try

    Youll know if this doesnt work as ill post again



  • oggmeista Sep 18, 2008

    EDIT driver found is for :windows xp pro 64bit :]

  • oggmeista Sep 20, 2008

    Dammit it didnt work have to see if I have more luck on the Asus site though the fact that the text support form had a crucial bug at the moment basically means I cant use it.

    thx though If you can find anything else ill be all ears

    use their auto find if not sure exact chipset to get their latest upgrade.

    still not much help sorry

    don't know if you have solved your router problem yet but there is one other solution, i've had to do this to one i had. i use this as a last resort if for some reason my os, router and modem cannot connect.

    the modem and router have to be bridged so that the router actually acts as the internet connection, yet the modem still commands the server connection.

    it works fine with no problems.

    router tech support will have to help you do the bridging. just explain what you need to do and follow along. it really is simple.

My m2n32-sli premium vista edition motherboard refuses to boot up when i put 6 gbs of memory. How do i solve this issue?

Hi iimarceloii, did you check the FAQ section on Asus web site?
Using Vista 32bit/64bit edition or win XP;
Basically Asus wants you to use 2GB of memory until windows has been completely installed & completely updated before you can add more memory to the system.
Than you can increase your memory to 6BG. To see all the FAQ's from Asus, click on this link;
Type: M2N32-SLI into the search window & click the arrow button.

Good luck iimarceloii!

Local area connection, no internet connection

My guess is the LAN port on your motherboard is bad. The simple solution would be to add a PCI ethernet card and disable the one on your motherboard in device manager.
