I have always used a wireless adapter card for my networking needs but now I need to flash my new Asus router with DD-WRT drivers and it doesn't seem to work over the air so I need to connect hardwire LAN style. But for some reason my LAN port seems to be non-existant! I can't find it in Device Manager, Driver Detective couldn't find it, and the www.epox.com website doesn't exist anymore either.. any ideas other than a new motherboard? or ideas on how to install DD-WRT over the air instead of hard wired? I have read up on multiple ways to do this and they all involved setting comp to 192.168.1.1 and turning on router then quickly forcing an upgrade. But my computer will never connect to it so there is no way to force the upgrade.

Did you ping 127.0.0.1 to test the computers own basic network setup?
Did you do a yum update and the network driver was updated?
Did you check service network status?
You could also update to at least 5.7 for better network support.
It seldom happens, but network cards do die. This usually happens out of the blue with no forewarning. The only way to tell is to put the card into another computer and/or to replace the existing card. Good thing is, they are really not expensive.
He can connect a LAN cable from another RJ45 port on the router to his laptop provided the router has sufficient LAN ports. OR He can connect the laptop using a wireless connection provided the laptop has a wireless card.
Hi Jackie! It sounds like a communication problem between the router and the computer. Try the following solutions to solve
1.Connect the LAN cable to other free LAN port in the router.
2. Try using a different LAN cable.
3. a. Open Device Manager b. Go to Network adapters. Click on the "+" sign next to it. c. Double-click on your network adapter. d. On Advanced tab, look for Speed/duplex settings (or Media Type) and change it's value to Full autonegotiation (or AutoSelect). e. Click OK on all windows. f. Close the Device Manager and restart your computer.
4. Reinstall or update your network adapter device drivers.
A "workaround" solution - use a wireless network adapter to connect wirelessly to the router.
Are you talking about wireless card in a notebook. Please clarify. If your answer is "yes" Check the wireless ON switch on your notebook. It could be in off position by mistake or to save power. (for some manufacturers to activate wireless card you need to use combination of keys (e.g. Fn+key with wireless sign)
Then check device manager
Go to start-control panel ->system->hardware and device manager.
Click on cross to expand network adapters. Wireless should be visible there. From there just right click on the wireless adapter and select "uninstall" option.
Restart your notebook (or desktop) to have thie driver reinstalled AUTOMATICALLY.
Please let me know if problem persists.
Both routers need to be on the same IP scheme and subnet i.e. 192.168.0.X subnet 255.255.255.0. First, unplug the Asus router. Next, make sure you have connection to the internet by hooking directly to the Apple router. Once you've established a connection to the internet plug the Asus router into the Apple router but go LAN port to LAN port.
Assuming you initially set up the router using the wired lan adapter and lead, enabled DHCP in the settings.
First stand right next to your router; Dells wireless is a little tempremental, go to control panel and in there should be Dell wireless monitor, open this up refresh it and see if it finds any wireless networks, if so try to connect.
Dissable your wired network lan adapter.
Go to the properties of your wireless card and on the TCP/IP line click properties again and ensure that obtain an ip address automatically is selected, press ok and restart the pc.
