    Tried xp & vista drivers still no go... I've unistalled n reinstalled all 3 diff driver versions. Always same issue they appear no problem in device mgr but with the exclamation mark & code 10 error..... So weird they appear in the bios under smart lan with the green light yet on the port yet got to OS n they apear to stop working. Dont really wanna install a copy of xp or vista on my sys just to test the gigalan i'd sooner bin off the mobo & get another...

    Are realtek chips really this flaky, scanning the net they appear to be of a very dubious quality..

    Have you disabled Smart/Green LAN? If not, please do as this may be causing you issues.

    Sorry I have not had time yet to test this myself, will try to get to it tonight if I have time.

    The chips are fine, maybe your board is faulty though, but the chips themselves are ok. Don't give up yet, let me test this on my end. I only have Windows 7 x64 RC though, but should be the same if you are using anything different.

    Not a problem buddy, that's why I am here. I needed to setup a new Windows 7 install anyway so I can have for other testing as I formatted my older one a week or so ago.

    K, no issues at all!

    Nothing needed to be changed or tweaked. I plugged in the cable and then installed windows 7. I did not have to enable the device, install chipset drivers, or LAN Drivers, all was working 100% when I hit the desktop >>>

    So, it looks like you may need to do a clean or dual install of XP or Vista to ensure your LAN ports are indeed working.

    Did you ever check the MAC Address info as I noted above using the F9 Key on the MAIN page of the BIOS? If you do, and you do not see MAC Addresses assigned then you may need to reflash your BIOS or flash to a different version to see if that corrects things

    Thanx for testing that. Yes I do get a mac address. One thing I have noticed is the chips appear as Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controllers not as Realtel RTL8168D/811D Family PCI-E gigabit ethernet NIC(ndis 6.20). Even if i try to select the latter in the driver panel it says a problem was encountered installing. Only the former driver name can install.... Could this be the problem?

    If your comfortable doing this, roll back to when you first did the fresh installation, the automatic NIC drivers in W7 should work fine right away.

    I found with Vista 32bit and Vista 64bit that Installing the microsoft update NIC driver would stuff them up and they wouldnt work until I rolled back.

    Even if your using the native w7 included drivers, you wont lose any features or anything, and I find they would be more reliable then the mobo disc drivers or the windows update ones.

    Now if after the very beginning of installing Windows 7 you had the NIC problem right away and didint update or install any aditional drivers prior to the problem then disregard this post :)

    I would try as mentioned above, rolling the driver back. You may need to do this in safe mode to avoid windows automatically reinstalling the driver. I think one method should also allow you to delete the driver as you uninstall it, Maybe uninstall device instead of driver (Not sure). Either way try both in Safe Mode and cancel the auto driver install if it starts.

    I am not sure if driver cleaner/sweeper programs can delete these drivers or not, but that may be worth a try as well

    What you mention about the "Realtek RTL8168D/811D Family PCI-E gigabit ethernet NIC(ndis 6.20)" is correct, that is how it should show up once you install a RealTek Driver, see here is my vista device manager with RealTek Driver installed (Realtek LAN 8111 vista x64 6.213.1110.2008). >>>



    You did not see that in the above image because that was using Windows 7 Default driver.

    Would you like me to test the Realtek drivers in windows 7 as well? I can, no problem

    You really need to setup a dual boot, either with XP, Vista, or Windows 7 again so you can test on a clean install if the default drivers are working or your hardware is bad possibly? I'd suggest a dual windows 7 setup because we know from my test that the default drivers work without issue, the same cannot be said for XP/Vista though as I have not tested things like that.

    I can tell you that I DO get a similar error (Error 10) if the incorrect RealTek driver is installed in vista, so you may just be installing the wrong driver as well?

    Worse comes to worse and you do a dual setup and all works fine you will at least know that a clean install will make it all good.

    And as said above, I do not suggest you obtain any drivers from windows updates, as these are often known to cause issues. Always get drivers direct from the sources

    UD4P is awesome, and cheaper than the UD5

    Clean install should be fine for you, unless there is some hardware issues of course.
