Windows 7: LAN Port Only Connecting At 10.0mbps

LAN Port Only Connecting At 10.0mbps

Hi,

I have a Gigabyte motherboard gigabyte 890fxa-ud5 which I am using on Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. I have the latest drivers for the LAN ports but I am experiencing an issue with one of the LAN ports only connecting at 10.0mbps if I attempt to use the other LAN port on the motherboard this is connecting at 1gbs. The LAN port that is only connecting at 10.0mbps is only showing an orange light on the router and not green. I have removed the drivers and reinstalled, I have also tried different cables and the port only connects at 10.0mbps. I have the latest BIOS installed for the motherboard as well.

I would appreciate it if someone could please advise on what might be causing this to me it seems that there is an issue with the LAN port its self.

If you go to the Network and Sharing center, and in the left pane click 'change adapter settings', then right-click the problem port and hit 'configure...' in the new window, there should be options to change the link speed and possibly (if it's an Intel-based NIC) self-diagnose any hardware problems. Hopefully that might help you out.

Hi
Thanks for your response, I have tried this and the LAN port is refusing to connect beyond any speeds after 10.0mbps.

Do you have any other suggestions?

Thanks

You might try clearing the cmos on that board then see if the light changes to green again.

Here is another person with the same board and same problem, seems to be a problem with the board.

Ethernet Port Not Working

Hi,

Thats my thread I created last year when it stopped working. Gigabyte took the board back and flashed the BIOS again and concluded that it was working but its not working again. I guess the only other thing I can do is send it into them again? As the other LAN port connects fine at different speeds.

Yes I'd call that a board problem. With a three year warrantee I'd have to send it back again.

Agreed. I'll get this sent back to Gigabyte and then post an update on the outcome.

Thanks for your help.

Hi

Just to follow up on this thread, Gigabyte have replaced the LAN chip on the motherboard and all seems okay so far.

Thanks again for your assistance
