Think this could be some kind of issue between an SMC 8014WG router and win 7?
maybe router firmware. You have a cable modem? You know you can knock yourself out trying to diax this, but in the end if you clean installed a more recent build it might be worth the time and trouble.

It doesn't show up as a separate entry, you have to select Nvidia Drivers from the list and then you will get this,

Actually, yeah ... a clean reinstall might be in order. I just realized that *none* of the nvidia components installed, the programs and features doesn't list anything other than my nic driver. When I try to reinstall the nforce driver package, it says it's overwriting things, but there's otherwise no evidence of any of it anywhere on my system.

As for the most recent build, I'm under the impression this *is* the most recent build. I just downloaded it yesterday morning. I just checked the windows 7 download site, and the file number matches the one I have. I'll keep looking, but I can't find a more recent one so far. The ISO is 7100.0.090421-1700. If there's in fact a newer one, I can't find it ...

You might want to check the leak threads. The most current build and most assume the RTM build is 7600. Check out the threads. thats why i suggested a newer build. Im sure a lot of driver issues have been resolved.

known issue

Hello,

I have also a P5NSLI mainboard and found out, this is a known problem with the onboard NIC. Is has something to do with (DMA?) adressing when having >= 4GB RAM. My workaround was to configure Windows 7 to only use 3 GB RAM. This can be done with the tool bcdedit to modify the boot settings. It's something like "bcdedit /set {current} removememory 1024" - this virtually "removes" 1 GB RAM - after that, my network connection worked (but 64 Bit now makes less sense, I know).
As second step, I'll try to "remove" only a small amount of RAM to nearly use all of my 4 GB...

I have this same motherboard and was experiencing the same issues. I finally gave up on 64-bit and have running the 32-bit RC for a while. After findng this thread I tried the BCDedit route. My network is perfect with "removememory 1024". I then tried removing 256mb and it was back to no network. I then increased the amount removed by 256mbs in succession until my network was working again. I ended up back at 1024. Seems it is not an issue of >=4GB of memory, but rather anything over 3GB. Again, this makes the 64-bit version of the OS pointless, at least for my uses.

I'm still running Win 7 RC Build 7100 though. Have you been able to find build 7600, or at least a later build than 7100?

Hi there
some NIC cards are just NOT HARDWARE 64 bit compatable even though Windows driver says its working.

Typically some gigabit via velocity nic cards (usually motherboard integrated) don't work in 64 bit even though Windows X-64 seems to find drivers.

Just get a USB==>LAN adapter or a pci-express card.

I've got a laptop with this problem -- I use an Agere pci-express card to connect via LAN. A cheap USB==>LAN (costs around 3 - 5 USD) is also a good solution.

Wireless is usually fine.

Cheers

Thanks for the tip Jimbo. I had completely forgotten my cable gateway had a USB port. A quick swap of my USB cable from my printer, deleted the removememory value from the boot, and presto-fixo... I have network access and use of all my RAM. Granted I'm now limited to "only" 10mbs on USB, but rarely does my service exceed that anyway!

Well, an additional NIC card could be a solution for me too.
Only to mention: I've tried the release version of Windows 7 (I'm MSDN subscriber) and network access with onboard NIC and more than 3 GB RAM still doesn't work on the P5NSLI.

I've added an Intel Pro 1000 GT Desktop PCI NIC Adapter to the P5NSLI. The network problem still remains! Network is still working only with 3 GB RAM setting. :-(
