    Did you redo your BIOS settings for you LAN connection like before? When you flash a BIOS and load optimized defaults then save and apply and reboot then all BIOS changes you made before will be gone

    Please check over your LAN Settings and see that they are correct in the BIOS Integrated Peripherals page

    Yeah, well when you flash a BIOS and load Optimized defaults, they may or may not be setup as you had them before.

    You are using the Onboard Ports for your connection right?

    You would want >>>
    Onboard H/W LAN Enabled
    Green LAN Enabled
    SMART LAN Press Enter
    Onboard LAN Boot ROM Disabled << does not matter unless you plan to boot to the network. It will allow you to boot from the network card, assuming that in your network there is a system configured as RIS server

    Maybe you need to reinstall the driver again. Sometimes Drivers can become corrupt for no reason. I would install the chipset driver and The LAN Driver off the cd again or download the latest online

    You could also try deleting the connection you have setup in your connections window, and re-create the connection to the router

    Well it should be there unless you got a used board.

    Here is the online drivers for your board >>>
    GIGABYTE - Support - Motherboard - Driver - GA-EP43-DS3L (rev. 1.0)

    Realtek RTL8111C/8111C Driver for LAN >>>
    Realtek

    Or
    REALTEK driver for network chips
