    Mine has now been working flawlessly under both Vista-64 and Fedora-10. I have been using a later (beta) bios, which I suspect fixed the problem. I am using Nvidia graphics. But I'm still afraid to let Windows install the driver update dated 10/03/2008!

    Still not working for me on my EX58-UD4P with latest beta BIOS F7D. LAN will just disappear from BIOS (check by pressing F9) until I power down the CPU. Gets messed up more frequently when booting into Linux than Windows, but when it happens the BIOS can't access the LAN either, so it must be at least partially a BIOS issue.

    Anything new on this problem? I am experiencing it too, have emailed Gigabyte (pointing to the current discussion) and waiting for their reply.
    Where have you gotten the beta bios from?

    What finally worked for me was to use Realtek's latest drivers for the network cards, on both Windows and Linux. With these drivers, so far I have no more problems. On Linux, of course, if I change kernel I have to rebuild the module, but that is a small annoyance... Of course, if network cards disappear, I must cut off the power (switch off PSU / remove cable) for a few minutes in order to get them back.

    Guys,

    I know that this may sound like a very simplistic solution but for those of you with Windows you need to turn off "Windows Automatic Update". If you have it on it will keep updating the NIC drivers to an October 2008 version which are totally incompatible with the Gigabyte Boards. Those of you who get the problem about once a week - I am willing to bet that is when you have the Auto updates scheduled to run. I hope this helps some of you with this problem.

    I'm kinda glad to see that I'm not the only EX58-UD5 owner experiencing this particular problem. I'm having the exact same issues as previous posters: if I boot into Ubuntu 8.10 (which I have installed after Vista x64), my network cards are not detect, although they are detected if I enter Ubuntu after having previously shut down the system and pressed that wonderful little Clear CMOS button, but then if I restart into Vista, the cards will not be detected. I've considered doing a BIOS update, but I am very skeptical about doing so, although SnorkleZ seems to have found the magical BIOS update that would fix this and I am very curios as to what that is. I'd really appreciate a reply from him, and I suspect I wouldn't be the only one Also, for Lsdmeasap's curiousity, I seem to remember having issues with the network under Ubuntu even when running the LiveCD, but back then I just thought the ISP was experiencing some technical difficulties or something of the sort. I guess I was wrong Anyway... I really hope we can get to the bottom of this problem ASAP because I need to be able to enter Ubuntu (or any other Linux distro for that matter, although there really doesn't seem to be any difference between them when it comes this particular problem) for university work.
    I'm pretty sure this problem has something to do with Ubuntu or pretty much the linux kernel, it would seem because of the multitude of distros this has happened on. A very strange thing that i have noticed, and am curios if anyone else's system has done this, is that after restarting from Ubuntu, the system begins to do a normal reboot, all the lights on the mobo turn on, then it completely shuts down for a few seconds after which it boots up normally and THE problem occurs. So it seems to me like something happens to the BIOS and when it shuts down instead of starting up it's actually restoring the BIOS due to an error. I hope this helps identify the problem. Also, I'm curios if the Gigabyte team couldn't get a EX58-UD5 mobo F3 BIOS and try to replicate this issue and maybe actually get to the bottom of this problem.

    G-hound,

    I really think that under Windows the key is to not use or let Windows' Automatic-Update install that 10/03 dated driver.

    The latest bios releases work well on this issue - I've been afraid to go back to the original one as a test for fear of starting this problem up again.

    When the board first came out (seems so long ago!) I found that Fedora 10 worked right out of the box. I had trouble with Ubuntu 8.10, Mandriva, SuSE (almost worked with slight problem) and others. I believe that people *are* using Ubuntu and of course most any should work when used with a recent enough kernel build or module.

    At the time, I was dual-booting Vista-64 and Fedora 10, and while the Windows 10/03 driver problem explains how I fixed this problem in Windows it seems puzzling that this problem still existed under Linux. I noticed that once the problem occurs, it never goes away until a power-reset, so perhaps I was just booting into Linux after having run Windows, and Linux wasn't the problem - whatever hardware was locked-up by the problem under Windows just needed to be power-reset before I ran Linux. I hope that makes sense.

    I might not normally have been tempted to upgrade the bios to a beta version either, but this motherboard was so new, and also exhibiting problems with AHCI that needed to be fixed that I decided it was necessary. I'm glad Gigabyte is continuing to improve the bios!

    I assume that most people have been fixing this successfully since there hasn't been that much traffic in this thread. Hearing from a few more who have fixed this issue and how they did it would help us to see what helps the most.

    Now back to my latest fun - getting 3-d acceleration working in my virtual machines!
