Sounds like a motherboard problem to me.

Most of us have several old NICs lying around, so do you have one to pop in the computer and try?

I'm sorry to tell you, But i do not.
We have always used the intergradet network card. And before that we always bought the computers from some dumb retailers instead of building them our selfs

Does anybody have a clue of what the problem might be or do i have to take the last resort, send the motherboard back to the reseller?

Before you give up and request an rma on this mobo, please get a good flashlight and some reading glass if needed and look into the receptacle for any clear issue with the contacts. These are normally bent wires that act like spring loading, try holding the cat 5 or 6 cable in and see if the system sees the connection? You say you tried other cat 5's so we can rule out the cable.

Also is your router also wireless capable? This would be another option to get you on the net while you sort out the rma issue with the mfgr.

So as you can see it was the motherboard that was defect.
I'd like to say thanks for your help guys.

I have the same problem

I really sucks how the motherboard is defected most likely that its a product failure because i have been looking at many forums and many people have the same problem and yes it connects trough a wi-fi adapter i have for my old PC but does not connect trough the Ethernet and i have a quick question did the led's light up when you plugged the cord in? FYI i am going to return the board this week sadly thermal grease is ruined and i have to spend another hour taking it apart putting it tougher not talking about the hour drive
