    Default (LAN) Z68 extreme3 Gen3

    OK. So I've been having some minor performance issues lately and decided to reinstall my OS. Everythign went smoothly until I booted to the OS and after tethering my phone to install the LAN drivers from ASrock's website I keep getting "Network cable unplugged" error. I've been at this for over 6 hours now.....I've tried the current drivers on ASRock's website, the latest drivers from Realtek. I thought to use the original drivers that came on the MBoard disk but I think I tossed that. I feel strongly that it's a driver issue, because I find it hard to believe that my NIC (embedded) could have gone bad in the 20-30 minutes that it took to reinstall the OS.

    Using Windows 8 or 8.1?

    The Win 8 driver for the Realtek RTL8111E chip on your board is actually listed as a Beta driver, version 8002.

    Otherwise, hard to comment, etc, without knowing what OS you are using.
