Updated with the latest driver, restarted, still can't run the Cable Test.

Connection Tests run fine.

Any ideas why?

 

Windows 10 Pro x64 22H2 latest patches.

PROSet v29.0 installed.

Driver v29.0 installed.

Restarted.

So it was working in version 28 and stopped working in version 29!!!

How is that Gigabyte's issue????

 

This is a software bug that was introduced in version 29!

Please do your job!

Hi Pintu !

You want Gigabyte or ASUS to patch your (Intel) PROSet Software ?

I will kindly remind you that i have the same issue with Asus Motherboard (Intel I211AT)... remember ?

Is this a joke ?

Camel75, this is the kind of service we get when Intel is hiring people for the following purposes:

1. Wasting our time as much as possible, so we might give up and go away.

2. Stopping requests from reaching the people who are supposed to fix the bugs.

 

As we've seen in the 14th gen CPU crash issue, Intel loves blaming the motherboard makers for its own bugs.

 

Intel Support, please do your job.

Hi,

 

I installed both the driver version 29.1 and the PROSet software version 29.1, then restarted my computer.

The result is still the same, the Cable test button is still grayed out.

No ! Same results...

I can actually update the driver to latest (14.0.5.0), but everything after ProSet 28.2.02 dont work.

Its quite annoying that intel provides 2 separate files to install drivers and ProSet, but you can not uninstall ProSet only... Its removing also drivers...

ProSet.jpgProSet2.jpgTomorrow i will also latest drivers and ProSet on my older PC (old Asus Motherboard with intel LAN) where with Cable Test you can also almost exact measure the length of the LAN cable...

Yup, downgraded PROSet to version 28.2 and Cable Test is working again.

Tried version 28.3 and it's not working.

It looks like this bug was introduced with version 28.3.

But, keep blaming Gigabyte...

You're waiting for my response after taking your hands off your own buggy software and sending me to Gigabyte support again???

What's the purpose for my response if all this support team exists for is to waste the customer's time?????

 

Pathetic quality and total Incompetence!!!

Hey @TomMoz , i have gone thru all the your and Intel support reply... can see the Intel Support (@Pintu) seems not much helps on your issue. That is very sad to see that.....

 

As per my checking, i found that there is new release driver 29.1.1.1 version. Maybe you can try if the latest driver fixed the issue. If still the same might need to wait the next major release for the Proset and driver... Hope Intel not remove the cable test option. 

 

You can find below link:

Hope this helps....:D

Hello Tom Moz,


Greeting for the Day!


In this case, we are not attempting to directly send you to Gigabyte. However, we recommend reaching out to Gigabyte support. Since this specific adapter is integrated with the motherboard, and Gigabyte is the OEM, they may possess more information about it.


Thank you for choosing Intel products and services.


Regards,

Manoranjan Das.

You mean to say Gigabyte may possess more information about why Intel has introduced a bug in PROSet version 28.3 and when Intel is planning to fix this bug in the software Intel has developed?

 

I'll be super gentle in my reaction and say, I highly doubt that Gigabyte could contribute some useful information about this Intel bug.

 

Again, please stop wasting our time with something Intel development team needs to solve and stop adding more complexity to something Intel needs to address directly. Why should we ask the OEM questions about bugs that Intel (and you as Intel representative) should answer directly???

Following your logic, maybe I should also contact the store where I bought my motherboard, so they will contact Gigabyte, so Gigabyte will contact Intel????????

Stop insulting our intelligence.

If all you're capable is wasting our time I'd appreciate you not commenting.

Hello TomMoz,


Could you please provide the make and model of the motherboard in question? Additionally, have you been in touch with the motherboard manufacturer regarding this issue?

As per our team update, this limitation could be due to the manufacturer not enabling additional capabilities.
