A s Ethernet network interface controller that connects to the motherboard via the now-obsolete ISA bus. Would you say the port is dead? I tried both of these and the led on the port does not light.

ASUS AU31 Desktop Motherboard W AMD CPU Socket T462 20-pin P1

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. For some reason, there was a bit of white corrosion on this brand new Mobo I’ve been using for almost a month I tried both of these and the led on the port does not light.

I was stuck with this problem for several days, thinking the motherboard ethernet chip may have died. I suspect that my LAN controller is dead but I don’t really know for sure. I would love to hear more about your situation.

Newer server motherboards may have multiple network interfaces built-in. Not to be confused with network interface device.

Network interface controller

So far this is what I have been doing to reproduce the problem: This page was last edited on 21 Decemberat I did notice that there were lights yellow and orange so that is one positive sign I suppose: I think I already know the answer to my question, but are there any other possible explanations, or is it dead? I thought my Asus Z97 onboard LAN was tehernet until I decided to power off the computer completely remove power cord for a little while and suddenly it became alive.


I’ve checked the connection on a couple of other machines and everything worked fine. Usually the second time Windows is woken from sleep the ethernet card will be missing.

An Ethernet network controller typically has an 8P8C socket where the network cable is connected.

Network controllers were originally implemented as expansion cards that plugged ethernft a computer bus. All I had to do was to turn off the computer, unplug the PSU, leave it off for a few minutes, then plug it back in and boot again, then it worked again!!!

What is NIC (Network Interface Card)?

I had no lights on the connector, a working internet connection, and the latest drivers were correctly installed. These define a standard receptacle for media-dependent transceivers, so users can easily adapt the network interface to their needs.

Grats and nice suggestion from ngen.
