Question about ASUS M2N-E SLI (M2N-E SLI GREEN) Motherboard

2 Lan ports not picking up cables

The 2 lan ports on the back of my computer no longer light up when a cable is inserted into either of them. This is after three rapid shutdowns of the computer. Could the rapid power surges have short circuited the 2 ports but left the rest of my motherboard unharmed? Need help to get the 2 ports working again.

Try to uninstall and reinstall the driver for the LAN cards. You can also try to remove it from the motherboard, change PCI slots then reload the driver.

Why does my ethernet not work properly?


In order to decide wheather it is a HW or a SW fault, try to boot another operating system, eg. some one-CD Linux testing distribution. In case it is a SW problem:
- try to instal Asus update (utilities):
ASUS Update V7.17.17 for Windows XP 32bit/XP 64bit/Vista 32bit/Vista 64bit/7 32bit/7 64bit from:
http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/M2NSLI_Deluxe/HelpDesk_Download/
- try to set in BIOS: POST Check LAN Cable: ENABLE (for both LANs). Any error message?
- try to switch off one of LANs: Onboard 1st(2nd) nVidia LAN: DISABLED. Does the other LAN work?
The last step could be testing different version of BIOS...
The easiest way to get LAN ready could be installing PCI LAN card...

M3N78-VM LAN PORT& PCI PROBLEM


1) How do you know that PCI slot is not working? Tried another PCI expansion card in it? Perhaps another LAN adapter card?
(Ethernet Card)

A LAN adapter card will go bad before a PCI slot will.

2) PCI expansion slot is bad? No other PCI slot to use?
Then here is a suggestion,

Plug it into any available USB port on the computer.
It is a GigaByte Ethernet solution, also. (10/100/1000)

The Ethernet port of my Asus M4a77td motherboard stopped working. I think it is a hardware problem because when I plug the router cable on the port, the corresponding light on the router does not turn on...


Yeah, the link light on the router should be coming on.
A few simple things to try:
Try a different network cable. Try a different port on the router. Visually inspect the port on the system and router to confirm they are not physically damaged in any way.

Some RJ 45 jack cable has fault so try with another RJ 45 jack cable .. Purchase new rj 45 jack cable from nearest computer shop. There must be 2 port on modem 1 for ADSL phone line cable and otthr for LAN ethernet port means RJ 45 jack port. Try with another rj 45 jack cable it should be connect.Make sure that LAN port of modem is not faulty means make sure pins on that port are not break. Let me know if you need further assistance.

The internet providers technical person connected the cable and told me that your lan card is faulty so change it. my lan card is inbuilt on motherboard


Unplug your power cable; Take off your casing cover; make sure your hand is dry and clean, install your LAN Card to the right slot (Please refer to your Network Card Manual Book); Power On your PC, Press Delete at boot screen until u login the bios screen, go to the Advanced Tab on the top there, Select [Disable] for Onboard Lan; Then save & exit. You're done well! Congrat!

LAN cannot work


You need to connect a LAN cable to it which is connect to another computer, network, router, and or hub. Then you need to setup the LAN network itself. Here are a few links that might help.

Onboard Lan causes boot and shut down problem


It sounds like you have some bad LAN circuity on your motherboard. You might try a workaround by installing a separate LAN card and using that. If the separate card doesn't solve the problem your motherboard is just bad and needs to be replaced.
