Question about EPoX EP-9NPA3 Ultra (EP9NAPA3ULTRA) Motherboard

Ep-9npa3 ultra LAN port non-existant

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 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 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.

    Ok... I think it has a heatsink and fan on it cause there is one just below my CPU heatsink and fan and above the card slots.. so not sure I can find out.. except my model number EP-9NPA3 Ultra says it is a Nvidia nForce4 Ultra. Did you need something more detailed than that?

Hi, I need standard spec info of VGA built on Asus P5GC-MX 1333 whether 64 Mb or 128 Mb. Many thanks & regards, Richard

you can use up to a maximum of 224 mb of your computer's RAM for the onboard video chip to use. You can install a video card with any amount of memory (which would give you a lot better video performance).

No lan

Download the drivers onto a CD via an Internet-accessible computer:

Ensure that the the device is enabled & that the network device (modem/router/etc.) is powered on & functioning.
Reseat the Ethernet cable on both ends.
Try using a different cable.
Reboot the network device & the computer.
Look for activity lights at the LAN port once connected to the running network device.

Inspect for or any other listing in the proxy server settings:
Select "Run" from the Windows™/Start menu, type "inetcpl.cpl", press [Enter], go to the "Connections" tab, & click on "LAN settings". If nothing there has been selected, then it is not the problem.

If this is a new problem on an older machine, then it could result from a firewall setting or from malware or a virus.

If all else fails, try installing a NIC (network interface card) in order to get around the non-functioning component.

Im programing my x box 360 it needs me to program the wpa net work to get this new x bow to work. im new at this expain things very clear , thanks

Follow these instructions to set up the Xbox or Xbox 360 connections to a wireless home network. These instructions assume the wireless router is already installed with a working Internet connection. If after following these instructions you are unable to network your Xbox with the wireless router, see - Connecting Xbox to Wireless Networks - Why Things Go Wrong

Here's How:
  1. Connect the appropriate wireless network adapter to the console. On the Xbox, a Wi-Fi adapter that connects to the Ethernet port (sometimes also called a wireless network bridge) must be used. Alternatively, the Xbox 360 is also designed to work with certain Wi-Fi game adapters that connect to a USB port.

  2. Turn on the console and navigate to the wireless settings screen. On the Xbox, the menu path is "Settings -> Network Settings -> Advanced -> Wireless -> Settings" On the Xbox 360, the menu path is "System -> Network Settings -> Edit Settings."

  3. Set the SSID (network name) on the Xbox to match that of the wireless router. If your wireless router has enabled SSID broadcast, the SSID name should appear pre-selected on the Xbox display. Otherwise, select the "Specify Unlisted Network" option and enter the SSID there.

  4. Specify "Infrastructure" as the Network Mode. (Infrastructure is the mode used by wireless routers.)

  5. Set the Security Type to match that of the wireless router. If your router uses WPA encryption and the type of adapter connected to the Xbox does not support WPA, you will need to change your router settings to use WEP encryption instead. Note that the standard Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Network Adapter supports WPA while the standard Microsoft Xbox Wireless Adapter (MN-740) only supports WEP.
  6. Save your settings and verify the network is functional.

    On the Xbox, the Wireless Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made with the wireless router, and the Connect Status screen displays whether a connection has successfully been made through the Internet to Xbox Live.

    On the Xbox 360, use the "Test Xbox Live Connection" option instead.
  1. Even when your wireless connection between the Xbox and the router is working perfectly, you may still experience difficulty connecting to Xbox Live. These issues can be caused by the quality of your Internet connection or the firewall and Network Address Translation (NAT) settings of your wireless router. Additional troubleshooting may be required in these areas to achieve reliable Xbox Live connections.

Where you able to check the Network adapter on the Windows Device manager?

How to verify your Network card is working properly

If you are unable to resolve the problem with your intergrated lancard then you can add additional LAN CARD on your computer or you can also buy USB to LAN CARD adapter.

Boot up problem

Sounds as if you need to change your cmos battery (Cr2032 on motherboard) first of all as i'ts a very cheap item to replace, then set the bios up again, then try to boot, if still no boot you may need an operating system repair.
