InMembers,

i am having some sort of a disturbing issue since i bought the subject Board. there is seem to be an issue in the secondary LAN Card where it just stops working and i have to reboot the whole machine for it to work again. I am not really sure what that could be. i tried all alternative like changing the cable, Removing the cable and insert it again .. etc but the only thing that seems to work is the Reset.

has any one seen this issue before. is there a fix for it. i am running the latest BIOS, I did the upgrade 3 days ago but the issue keeps coming back.

Regards

Karam

Hello Karam,

Here are our recommendations for this issue:

- Make sure you have the latest drivers for LAN and Chipset:

- Test the system out of the chassis, on a minimal configuration if possible.

- Test with a different power source.

I'd also try as part of troubleshooting disabling all power saving options in the Intel NIC properties, like reduce link speed on idle, etc...
