Hi, I've just finished installing my new computer on top of an Asus Rampage III Extreme motherboard. The system specs are as follows: Asus Rampage III Extreme motherboard Intel 980X i7 12 GB Kingston DDR3 2x Intel X25-M 160 SSD in RAID0 2x ATI Radeon 5970 in crossfire I've connected LAN to the onboard LAN connector, but doesn't light up nor does Windows (Windows 7 x64) detect any network devices in the computer. I have installed all the drivers on the support CD and even tried to install the Intel 100/1000 drivers directly via the CD. It tells me that there are no Intel NICs on the system. I've been looking (looking, not tampering) in the BIOS to see if the LAN should somehow be disabled, but I can't find anything on it. The only onboard devices I can fiddle with are 1394, USB and audio. Any ideas? I'm very close to going out and buying a PCI-express 10/100/1000 NIC.

Look for the "on board devices" the entry "Gb" if I recall, is the LAN, make sure it marked as enabled.

Double check the Ethernet cable.

I'm running BIOS 0901, and Advanced -> Onboard devices lists these: Onboard devices: [Standard] High definition audio: [Enabled] - Front Panel Type: [AC97] - SPDIF Out mode setting [SPDIF] Onboard SATA controller: [Enabled] Onboard 1395 controller: [Enabled] The cable is good, I'm typing this post connected to it :-) Onboard SATA6G controller: [AHCI mode] Onboard USB 3.0 Controller: [Enabled]

I've just updated to the latest official bios: 1005, but the issue remains and I still have no LAN under onboard devices in BIOS.

Did you do a clear cmos and loaded the default settings after flashing the bios, if there is still no lan entry in your bios, you could switch too the other bios, if there is also no entry of the lan, then your one of the unlucky and have a faulty mainboard, you could send it back to your reseller and asking him for swithing the faulty one for a new one or you could buy a faster pci-e lancard and use that for the internet.
Don't give up this mobo and ask a new one.

I did clear the CMOS before loading the new bios, but I've yet to try out switching to the other BIOS. I'll give that a go later today, otherwise I'll have to RMA it. RMA is just the mother of all evils, so I'm also considering finding af PCI-e 10/100/1000 card to slot in.

Don't know if you solved your problem yet. I had the same issue a short time ago(see posting under network adaptor). Unlike you my system had been up for a few months. Neither windows nor the BIOS saw a network adaptor. I have BIOS ver. 1005. I went and bought a card and put in the latest drivers and things seemed fine. When I booted up next day I had no internet. Went to device manager and asked it to search for devices and it found the onboard adaptor. Removed the card and it has worked fine since then. I had tried all the things posted above with no success. My problem started when a power failure knocked down my running system.

Hi again, forgot to mention one thing. You list a lot of powerful components on that board. Is your PSU up to the job? Some times that deficiency can show up in strange ways.

I had actually already read your post and I did try to search for new hardware through device manager, but nothing shows up. I'm running a Corsair 1200W PSU in the system, which should be sufficient. I did also try the usual "disconnect everything you don't need" by booting up with just a single graphics card, only primary disks, no DVD drives etc. It makes no difference. I'm pretty confident the onboard LAN is fried. The cable connector doesn't even light up when I boot up the machine :-(

If the GBE LAN is not disabled in your bios and no light shown at the connector after cable attached, what left for you to do is to request for a RMA.
