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

1 Answer

Networking Problem Just replaced my motherboard with the M2N-E SLI. Everything is functioning well (now), except I cannot connect to my network and Internet. I have installed the drivers that came with my motherboard. The device manager indicates that the 1392 adapter is functioning, but the nvidia nforce network controller is not. When I attempt to install drivers I get a message that says the service already exists, yet the device manager indicates that there is no driver installed. Just for grins, I tried installing a USB wireless adapter, which connected to my network just fine, but I cannot access other computers or the Internet. I feel like I'm missing something obvious, but I am spent. Help!

    I have had success in connecting with my usb wireless divice. I still can't get the LAN connection. The LAN connection light indicates that there is a connection with the network (orange light). However, there is no green light indicating activity. The firewall is clear. the CMOS is enabled.
    There seems to be a driver problem. Can anyone tell me how to clear all installations from the registry safely?

    Well, I feel pretty sure you've led me in a good direction here. However, I have had no luck installing the updated bios. First I used the software packaged with my motherboard. After it updated itself, it led me through its own search and update feature. Eventually, it offered me the best update available for my configuration. When it tried to install the self-test failed. Next I tried to install the update by pointing the program toward the file I downloaded manually. Again, it failed the self-test. Finally, I decided to use the flas program built into the bios - but, when I hit "del" upon startup my computer goes directly to Windows, so now I can't access my bios. Lastly, I tried to "F8" into Windows safe mode - again, no response to the keyboard. Boot up works as well as ever, but I am truly stuck where I am.

Try to check the CMOS setup possible its been setted to LAN disabled and make it enabled.

You need some changes of the CMOS settings as well as your Local Area Network configuration. If you are using static IP of Virtual IP you must valued it to fill-up everything. If the old mother working there is no possible that the new one will not work.

You must also check the firewall settings sometimes we will forget to check that something blocking our network connectivity. If the problem still occured you need to change the motherboard from where you bougth the motherboard I think that''s still counter for the warranty replacement.

Hope this will be helpful to you. Please don't rate me Inappropriate if you don't like my solution just wait until some other expert will give additional solution to solved your problem.

Good Luck.

    Can you do to reset your BIOS again, by removing the battery of your motherboard or you can used the jumper reseter beside the battery. Mostly you can able to identify it with three number of pins and the jack color usually is blue. Since that jumper reseter include three pins, the default was located at 3 to 2 pins. Remove that then place it to 1 to 2 pins. And turn-on your computer, once you notice that you computer not responding the power button that's the time it was already reseted. And now place put it back the jumper into original or default settings number of pins and power-on again your computer and possible you can now access the CMOS setup.

    Hope this will be helpful

My ASUS M2N SLI onboard LAN connection is not working, I do not have an Ethernet Controller in device manager, and there is no drivers that i can find online to solve this issue. I just re installed...

you might have to connect the usb lead to your modem to get a connection then
click start control panel,administrive tools,computer management,device manager scroll to network adapters should see a yellow question mark? right click install drivers
hope this helps

Audio deosn't work on mobo

Hi Chris, the problem can be one of two issues. If the sound jack located at the back of the PC did function at the same time as the front case sound jack. Than the problem is the jack it's self is bad. (Back of PC). Someone had to hook up the front mic & sound jack to the motherboard. So disconnecting the front sound & mic may give you rear sound & mic.
Turn to page 2-29 in you're user manual for the Asus M2N-SLI. The pic shown is the default setting for the front case audio & mic. (What you do see are the two jumpers connected). So disconnect any connector & place a jumper over pins 9 & 10, (last two pins at the right of the two rows of pins). Place another jumper over pins 5 & 6.
Pin 1 is the first pin on the left bottom row (MIC2). Pin 2 is the first pin, left edge top row (AGND). Pin 8 is not installed but you still count its spot as if there was a pin. (This is how the board was setup from factory). Once you fix this you should regain sound & mic function at the rear of the PC. To fine tune the audio run the Asus sound effect manager. If you installed this software, (Recommended). If it’s not by you're clock than it’s in control panel.

Setting up SATA

You need to enter the bios. Use the M2N-E SLI manual to help make some changes. Start up the PC & begin to press the Delete key every two seconds. Doing this will open the bios. Open you're manual to page 4-29. All four SATA's should be set to Disable. Save & exit the bios. The SATA drives will still function but you should no longer get the screen to setup a RAID.

Ethernet controller

1. Remove network card and see if restarts go away.
2. Remove all but one RAM stick and try it, swap that ram with one of the others and try again.
3. Try another power supply.

4. If windows was installed previously with old mobo, you may need to do a repair install of windows or wipe it and start over.
