I have a machine based on the DQ77KB motherboard with an I3 processor - which works fine overall - however I have noticed that the NIC does not always come up at boot. I am running uefi boot with archlinux and no Windows operating system. I have tried two different network connection systems (ifplugd with netcfg - and NetworkManager) - the same issue arises with both methods of starting the network.
Does anyone know if this is a known fault with this motherboard? I am running the latest BIOS (v 049)
