    Exclamation LAN Controller for EX58-UD4 is gone.

    Hey guys!

    I was hoping that some of you could help me out with this.
    I've recently purchased the Gigabyte EX58-UD4 (UD4 not UD4P) and I'm having some problems with the onboard LAN. (I've tried with both XP and Windows 7 64-bit, currently using W7) Ubuntu actually find it, no problem.

    The Device Manager or the Control Panel does not list the the onboard card, and I can't seem to find any drivers that will work.
    It's like it's not even there!

    When installing the driver, I get this message:

    "The Realtek Network Controller was not found.
    If Deep Sleep Mode is enabled Please Plug the Cable."

    The cable is of course plugged in.

    In the BIOS (F5), there is a function called "SMART LAN", but this function does not work either.

    What is wrong, and can you please help? Is there a way to make Windows "discover" it? I feel like I've tried everything, but could use some expert advice.

    Thanks alot!

    Hi

    I'm guessing "please plug the cable" is bad English for please detach and re-attach the LAN cable. This is sometimes necessary after sleep on some combinations of motherboards / modes of sleep.

    Some questions:
    1) Ubuntu finds it, but is it usable?
    2) On the network port on the back there are two LEDs to indicate link and activity on the network, do any of these light up at any time if you start from off-mode and boot into any OS?
    3) If you go into the BIOS settings and press F9, what does it say for LAN MAC address?
    4) At start up, just before the OS boots there is this long list of devices in the computer with manufacturer ID codes, device IDs etc. Is your network adapter listed there? Please use a digital camera if you are having trouble reading it all before it boots the OS (or just press the pause/break button on your keyboard when the list is displayed).

    Same problem happened to me. Solution was to turn off the power switch and then reboot. I also installed newer drivers from the Realtek website (not from Windows update)

    Thanks for the replies!

    I just solved the problem, but I have no idea how or why.

    When I didn't know what to do with the LAN controllers, I thought I might aswell fix the HDD's - one for OS and one for storage. Anyway, I reinstalled Win7, and deleted XP and Ubuntu partitions in the process. Suddenly, the LAN controllers worked! Wierd.

    I started a thread like this over at tomshardware.com too, and this other guy had the same problem. He also used Ubuntu as a second OS. Coincidence?

    Is it possible that having Ubuntu as a second OS messes up the LAN controllers?

    Anyway, thanks again for great replies! :)

    Well, there are problems with these symptons that are not as easily solved as per your "fix". That is: same symptons, different problems.

    No kidding.. so what's your point ? You could make that same post on almost every problem reported in this forum. I posted a link to a solution that worked for me. No one said it was the only solution
