Internet/Lan Connection Problems


Recommended Posts

READ FORUM RULES AND MAKE SIGNATURE AND SHOW LOCATION AS WELL... The management...

 

Hey, my first post...so plz be understanding if I didn't see another post similar to this :nod:

 

Anyway, I just got the Ultra-D today and it all went perfect until the internet/lan problem came up. The problem is simple: My computer won't connect to the internet.

 

I have done the following:

 

-Installed/Repaired/Uninstalled/Reinstalled all the drivers off the official CD from DFI

 

-Reset the BIOS

 

-Installed/Repaired/Uninstalled/Reinstalled the program from my ISP/router companies program (2Wire)

 

The ISP is SBC, the router is 2Wire, and I'm using a regular phone line connected to an adapter to fit into a USB port. "2Wire PC Port" is the official name...

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks mucho. :D

Hi there,

I had a simular problem and this is what the boys from DFI told me:

 

 

 

Dear Customer

 

Thanks for your letter of June 18 regarding to LAN problem. The MAC address might be lost after flashing BIOS. Please key in the MAC address in BIOS, the problem will be solved. The MAC address (12-digit string) is shown on a small white label pasted on the LAN port.

 

Sincerely Yours truly,

 

Tech Support

 

Hopes this helps.

Hi all,

 

Same problem for me but I plugged in my router/modem in the second LAN Ethernet Port (Marvell one) and all is working fine now... It was impossible to use the nforce4 LAN port.

 

Fluffy Bunny, did this solution from DFI work for you ? If yes, how do we key in the MAC Address in the BIOS ?

 

Regards,

lorenzox

This is a common problem that if you search on next time you will find all over this forum.

 

Some people have success when they enter in the right mac address into the bios for the nvidia Gig Ethernet and some don't.

 

Other/I opted to go with the Marvell Gig Ethernet port and deleted/disabled the other port and drivers. I haven't had a single problem.

 

Next time really do a search and don't make it sound like you couldn't find what you need. his very question has come up at least 3 times in the last 2 days.

 

Let us know how it goes.

well, I did look over this forum for a while, and did not find anything that helped my problem. That is the reason why I posted this and figured that since none of the other "solutions" worked for my perticular problem, I figured I would post this and get more into the specifics of my exact situation.

 

in addition, I'm not sure if this has anything to do with the problem, but I'm not using the 2 ports in the back for my internet. I'm using an adapter that connects a phone line to go into a USB slot

nvm, i got it working...XP installed weird.

 

Anyway, now I've got this weird rebooting problem. The computer will reboot/startup like normal, but once it gets to the desktop screen, it'll restart the process all over again, and do that "loop" anywhere from 5 to 30 times before it finds someway to startup all the way.

:confused:
