Have you had any issues with the NICs showing limited or no connectivity, randomly disconnecting and reconnecting, not pulling IP addys? I have, on 5 of these boards and it is driving me crazy! THE REALTEK NIC ON DG41TY IS BROKEN!
Make sure to update the bios of the board to the latest version. (Recovery Method recommended if possible)
Install the latest LAN Drivers
Then do a CMOS clear of the board by removing the AC power plug for a couple of minutes and removing the rtc battery.
Then plug back the ac power and check if it helps.
All the best,
Hi Rajiv, I am going to try that right now. I will be at work for the next 8+ hours and will be able to see how this solution works. I will post an update.
This is an update, the systems that are failing DO have BIOS version TYG4110X.86A.0031.2009.0626.1405 installed
The RealTek driver installed was from 2008, I am updating that now.
For anyone having this problem:
If you already have the 86A BIOS from June 2009:
Doing a driver replacement does not work, I tried. I will continue to try the above method, I'm just testing to see if it can be done in less steps.
You are very quick. :-)
Well, keep me updated.
If you have got something, do let us know.
All the best,
OK, I have disconnected the system, removed the RTC battery, let sit for 10+ minutes.
I have reinstalled the battery powered on the system and now the NIC is functioning.
I will update this all day I have "fixed" this problem by disconnecting the power before and the problem always comes back...
