Ok, I did this, and it is already set to "Auto" and started

and with this:
"D: Enter BIOS, make sure that the Integrated NIC is Not Disabled."

I didn't find this in my bios settings. under LAN cable status the only option i could change was enable lan cable check during posting... which was disabled and I then Enabled... should I have done this?
I searched everything I think, and couldn't find anything about the NIC....

I noticed you have a tunneling device installed. I assume you have a vpn client installed? (such as hamanchi)

**Ok, forgive because I had to look up what this was, lol. I don't have a vpn. I connect through a router sometimes when I need to share the net with another pc, but usually I'm plugged dirtectly into my Cox Cable Modem.

Uninstall that and restart.
You have ip v6 disabled correct?

**yes v6 is disabled

You have tried setting a dynamic ip, which normally solves this, (which has me confused as well.)

**yes I've gone back n forth

Can you draw me up a sketch of the way your network is setup , include everything from your modem to your pc (modem , wireless router, computer, what kind of cables you are using. also try to include the ip address you access your router with.)

**I basically stated it above. I connect directly to a Cable modem usually, but sometimes through a linksys router.

and do you still have your disk that cam with your mobo?

**yes I do. I've installing the LAN drivers and others, but it says it doesn't support the opterating system. I went to ASUS' website, but they don't list windows 7 as an option for my mobo. I have P5NSLI.
I've updated my video driver and sound driver.
I haven't updated directx... does that matter?


thanks

When you insert the disk close the auto play menu. Open the disk via explorer, right click on the autorun.exe If its not labeled autorun.exe check autorun.inf it should tell you. auter you right click open properties, the find compatibility. Tell it vista sp2. and run it again. It shouldgive you the options to install the drivers. Im using an asus maximus forumla and thats how I had to get some of my drivers.

ok ill try that and get back to you. thanks

** it says theres a driver incompatibility- that it requires a digitally signed driver..
it "can't execute Kernel mode driver service" or load "ASUSHWIO.DLL" or "ASCDDMI.DLL"

I tried switching to sp1 but it was the same....

I don't see any LAN drivers or ones that seem applicable... but I'm not to sure about what I'm doing...

* I tried installing the chipset driver by setting to vista 64 but it still gave me the same error msgs...

Remove the internet cable from the pc and turn off the cable modem. Go to device manager and expand Network Adapters, Then right click on your network adapter and click Uninstall. Then restart your computer. Turn on the cable modem again and after 2 mins, plug in the internet cable. See if it helps.
