Intel® 2.5 Gbps Ethernet on ASUS motherboard does not connect to the LAN

Good day to all!

 

I have an ASUS MB ( ASUS ROG Strix B650E-E Gaming WiFi ) and on a new build the system doesn’t see my LAN. So I can’t even install Windows 11.

 

The LED’s on the Ethernet port and on the router are blinking, but the router indicates a speed of 10Mb.

 

The router is 1Gb and the other PC’s are seeing the LAN OK.

I did try to change the router ports, reset the router and used a new CAT8 cable.

I did upgrade the ASUS BIOS to the latest version.

 

Anyone has any suggestions?

Thank you!

Problem resolved.

 

This was a deadlock situation: no LAN without drivers downloaded via OS and no Windows 11 installation without LAN.

 

Solution:  bypass the internet requirement for Windows 11 installation 

1) [Shift] + [F10] enter the command prompt

2) OOBE\BYPASSNRO

 

I did have to [CNTRL] [C] to activate the keyboard .
