i got a Maximus VII Impact with a bug on RJ45. The motherboard look good but the RJ45 is in "CODE 10" in Windows manager. I try many solutions but no one done. It's the i218-v component.
Solution 1 : Unplug all power cable and unplug the cmos battery => no effect
Solution 2 : Put Boot as normal in motherboard bios => no effect
Solution 3 : Disable rj45 in bios / boot / reboot / enable rj45 in bios / reboot => no effect
Solution 4 : Disable rj45 in Windows manager / reboot / enable rj45 in Windows manager / reboot => no effect
Solution 5 : Update rj45 in Windows manager => no effect because the rj45 is in "CODE 10"
i read there is a litlle tool named UPL Tool, tool able to flash the rj45 rom. I need it to try if i can repair this rj45 slot.
perhaps it will have no effect but i have to try on my motherboard. If anyone have other solution i'll appreciate a lot.
As discussed, please contact Asus* your board vendor to check with them on the hardware aspect, they are in better position to check as this is onboard NIC on their system. You may refer to our website regarding support for OEM NIC https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000006628/network-and-i-o/ethernet-products...
