Maximus IV - no internet conenction?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Just got done setting up this new PC I was building, and so far everything has gone pretty well. I ended up having one problem though, where I haven't been able to get a connection going to go online. I've installed the drivers that came with on the disc, but still nothing. I ended up having to setup my old PC again to look up info on this problem, but couldn't find anything. Was wondering if anyone here might have any suggestions that could help with this.

Try to download the latest Ethernet drivers. If you're using a wireless connection or a modem then you should also install the drivers for that.
Also maker sure you select the right OS from the drop-down menu on the manufacturer's drivers page.

Are you using a wired or wireless router?
Is the ethernet port detected?

If you're using a standard router, then installing drivers is a simple click on the CD; it should automatically know what driver to install, anyway.

If the Maximus IV has both an Intel and Realtek port, make sure you install the CORRECT drivers for the port you intend to use. Since you have TWO ports on that system controlled by two different IC's, the chances of both ports being dead are next to zero.

Make sure that the port is enabled in the BIOS; there are settings for boot rom for the port and enabling it; it's easy to miss. But it SHOULD be enabled by default.

If you have done ALL of this and the port STILL isn't detected in device manager, or you get some sort of "windows can't troubleshoot this connection," then you may have a dead port chip, and that means it's time to RMA.

Installing drivers for the ports on the P67 cards are really just a matter of two mouse clicks and a reboot....the ports either work right away or they are dead. My B2 UD5 had an issue with the ports sometimes being dead for awhile after windows reboot (both XP and W7, though it wouldn't start working in XP until after another reboot, while it would eventually start working in W7. This didn't happen on the B3 board at all).

Well here's the thing. Like I mentioned, I installed the drivers provided in the CD. I also went on to my old PC, downloaded the latest drivers from the ASUS site, put it on a usb flash drive, and then put it on this new one and installed it. Still nothing. I also went into the device manager to test everything out, like for instance, I did this test that tested the ports by having it flash a little green light on the port the ethernet cable was installed in, and it flashed no problem. So the port is being detected, but for some reason, windows still isn't recognizing any kind of signal.

It also isn't an issue with the modem or cable that I'm using, because I'm using the same cable/modem for this PC right now.

There is also an orange light flashing in the port where I put the ethernet cable too, so everything is being detected hardware-side it seems, but for some reason, I just can't get it to work software-side.
