  1. Thank's for the replys guys.

    In event viewer I was getting a dhcp warning saying it had set the ip to the above mentiond ip address.

    As to BiffSteel's post I did have link lights active on the ethernet port.

    device manager showed the nvidia ethernet as working and enabled, and I tryed a diffrent port on my router with a diffrent cat5e cable.

    Also as stated before windows did detect if I disconnected the cable.

    I innitaly had the connection set to auto detect all settings. it was once this problem occured that I tryed to manualy set the ip and related info.

    Im not using the nvidia firewall, and have always used the drivers that came on cd with the mobo.

    I had read enough before getting this board to try and prevent this type of problem, apparently it didnt work lol :sad:


    I picked up a cheap linksys netword everywhere nic from walmart, put it in and windows detected it off the bat and my connection was working as it should. even seems to be a little more responsive.


    Im still goning to try and figure out what happened so if any one has any more ideas please throw them in.

  2. After having this mobo for several months and the ethernet being fine it seems to be dead.


    This morning I got up and went to check my email. got an error saying my email client couldnt connect to server. I tryed getting online and FF says it cannot connect.

    my wifes computer and my laptop were connected to the net ok so wondering whats going on I run ipconfig from the command prompt.

    to my supprise its only has info for ip address and subnet mask. the ip address it had was wrong.

    My ip address is since Im connected to a router, but ipconfig reported

    wondering if maybe some thing bad had made its way onto my machine I ran antivirus,ccleaner, spybot, and mcafee antispyware. none of which picked any thing up. I then reran them in safe mode with the same results.

    I then tryed manualy setting my ip address and other related info, but my machine locked up when I clicked on ok.

    I also tryed uninstalling the nvidia ethernet and reinstalling it with the same results. I tryed the connection on my router and cable used for my laptop, Ive now done a fresh install of windows, and I tryed manualy setting the mac address in bios. All with the same result, windows reporting the wrong ip and I can not connect to the net.

    If I unplug the network cable windows does detect that it has been disconnected, so apparently there is some form of communication going on.


    Does any one have any ideas that could help me. Im wondering if the nvidia ethernet has died and I need to just go get a pci ethernet card.

  3. Two women, who had been friends for years, decide to go for a Girls Night Out, and were decidedly over enthusiastic on the cocktails. Incredibly drunk and walking home, they needed to use the bathroom. They were very near a graveyard and one of them suggested they do their business behind a head stone or something.




    The first woman had nothing to dry herself with. She thought she'd take off her panties, use them, then throw them away. Her friend, however, was wearing a rather expensive underwear set and didn't want to ruin hers, but was lucky to salvage a large ribbon from a wreath that was on one of the graves. So she dried herself with the ribbon.




    The next day the first woman's husband phoned the other husband and said, "This girl's night out thing has got to stop right now. My wife came home last night without her panties."




    "That's nothing," said the other husband, "Mine came home with a card stuck to her bum that said, "FROM ALL OF US AT THE FIRE STATION, WE'LL NEVER FORGET YOU!"

  4. How much higher vcore than set in bios is normal on this board?

    now that I am stable at stock on this board(see sig but with ocz el gold) I decided to try to oc my cpu again.

    I ran S&M and passed, but I had my vcore set to 1.55v in bios and it peaked at 1.64v staying about 1.6v during the fpu test.

    Is it normal for this baord to front this much voltage when the cpu wants it?

    When using the MSI neo plat I had to set it to 1.6v to oc, so Im not worried about the voltage so much as the board going .05v+ over what I had set in bios.

    Right now Im back to stock. please let me know if this is normal of this mobo so I know if its safe to persue my oc..
