To be honest with you, I did not get any problem with this board last time I have used it.
So I will advise you to uninstall the IDCC completely from the system. Make sure everything works fine with your lan. Re-install the LAN drivers from the website if necessary.
Then DO a CMOS clear on the BOARD by removing the CMOS battery for 10 mins
Update the BIOS to the latest one V0116 using the Recovery method or ISO method or Iflash method.
Then install the IDCC again, see if it helps
Let me know how it goes.
All the best,
Hey Bobbo. I am having the exact same problem. Did any of the solutions work for you? I'm about to try clearing the CMOS, but if you have any suggestions they'd be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Unplugging the PC from the wall socket seemed to fix the network problem. I did not realize that the power button on the PC does not really shut down power to the motherboard, and the network interface appears to remain active. After trying everything I could think of, I unplugged the the PC in order to put in a PCI network card. However, I could not get the card to work, so I just tried one more time with the embedded network solution and everything worked, which is why I believe that completely removing the power re-set the network interface. I felt pretty dumb for not completely shutting power to the mother board. I haven't tried the Desktop Control Center again - I think I'll wait until they have a version that is not beta. Hope that helps.
Any other problems because I am getting interested in this conversation. Teach Me!!!!!! Anyway I just posted something that you might interesting. I am advocating for server drivers for desktop boards.
There is a reason for completely pulling all electrical power out of the board. Even if you do try it again I am guessing you will still have similar issues, regardless of the controller being the full version. I don't know I am new to computer building.
Hmmm, I thought I'd pulled the power. Anyway, here's what worked for me:
- Uninstall IDCC and shut down Vista.
- Open the case and swap the position of the CMOS jumper.
- Turn on the power, wait a few seconds, reset the CMOS jumper.
- Boot Vista, and voila! We're back on the network.
Oh man, was this ever an unpleasant afternoon. Good thing I found this thread.
Well, weeman, I've been building my own PC's since the days of the 286, and this one had me stumped for several hours. You can always learn something new.
Thanks, IDCC, for teaching me such a "valuable" lesson.
I will give you that. One thing I want to point out is that technology doubles capacity every two or three years. moores law at work
Hi, I just fixed this issue with my computer and I was wondering why it happened. Windows 7 would not reconnect to the internet so I just turned off the power switch in the back, waited 10 or 15 seconds and turned it back on. After the reboot everything was peachy. I didnt uninstall anything. I ran the program again and the internet connection worked fine.
