    Dear Mr. Keepwaling,
    Thank you for this solution. I followed your instructions, but got confused when you spoke of extracting to the LAN folder. I did an explorer search and could not file any folder by that name. I did save it to my flash drive and then ran the exe file. So far,no change in my ethernet question mark ! icon.

    Is there any way to check on the ethernet connection'sfunctionality before I head out to get a PCI network card?

    Thanks, The solution was very well thought oout and articulated. It did pertain to my Gigabyte motherboard and the model I had, so it isn't that I took your solution and was trying to solve another motherboard's problem. Thanks for your expertise.

Hi keepwalking,
There are three revisions for this board. Please click on this link for the correct version number.
http://www.giga-byte.com/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=2475

Create a folder on you're desktop & name it Chipset. Listed on the right side of the above page is Drivers. Click on the word Drivers. Next, under Chipset click "Download from". Pick a site to download from & save the download file into the folder you created on you're desktop. The file is compressed. Open the chipset folder & double left click the .exe file. Extract to within the LAN folder. Once finished. Open device manager. Find the yellow ! point for you're LAN controller/driver. Right click on the yellow ! point once & left click update driver. Windows hardware wizard will open. Click No, not at this time. Than click the next button. Another window will open. Left click once in the circle next to, Install from a list or specific location (Advanced). Than click the next button. Again, another window will open. We want to remove the green check mark next to, Search removable media (floppy, CD-ROM...). Click the green check mark once & it will go away. Click the Browse button. . Another window will open. (Browse For Folder). Click the + sign next to My Computer. Find the folder chipset on you're desktop. Open it.
Open the folder, INFUpdate & run the .exe file.
This will re-install the updated chipset drivers for you're Gigabyte board. Make sure you restart before testing you're internet connection. If the update fails to remove the yellow ! point in device manager you're onboard LAN controller may be defective.
It is suggested you call Gigabyte if you're board is still warranted. If it is not warranted buy & add a PCI network card.

Good Luck!
If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.

Mike

you will have to open up your network connections click start control panel network connections this may vary depending on your operating system look for local area connection if you see a red x or a yellow exclamation or question mark you will need to update or install the driver or it could be firewalled
or you could click start control panel admiistation tools computer management device manager look for network adapters it might have a red X or yellow question exclamation ? ! mark if you see either of these right click to update driver if your computer came with a motherboard disk the drivers could be on it
make sure your modem/routers settings are correct ie:password user name,firewall settings to allow your internet to connect also test the lead/s whether usb or ethernet you might check your modem first to make sure that you are getting a connection
click start control panel administrive tools computer management device manager scroll down network adapters + expand Ethernet driver you might see a yellow question mark? This means you need to update the driver right click you will have options to update driver disable uninstall or select properties general you will have the options to troubleshoot or to update driver rollback or uninstall
a yellow? question mark means you need to install/update driver right click to install driver
last resort ring your ISP internet sevice provider get them to check your modem for internet access online

Lan terminal not working


first check for all the drivers in the device manager.... if every thing is perfect in driver side, then check if the ethernet/ lan is enabled....
then check is the light in the ethernet adapter is lit, when you plug any ethenet cable in it... still if it is not working, then finally try to update the latest driver for the ethernet controller.... if nothing works, then buy an pci ethernet card and use it..... you can also buy external cards like usb to ethernet converter... even belkin manufactures usb to ethernet controller....
