Fan Xpert 1.01.14 slow ethernet connection on boot (workaround)

I decided to post this for future reference in case it helps anyone else. Also, a search did not come up with this same workaround so I thought it might be relevant for anyone trying to tame this issue. This workaround did not completely solve the slow ethernet logon at boot but it reduced it by a very large amount.

Upon boot the ethernet took over a minute to make connection. This was working fine until I moved from a C5V to a C5V-Z and updated Fan Xpert from 1.00.41 to 1.01.14. After some tinkering I discovered what helps for me. I changed a service setting "AsusFanContorlService" startup type from "automatic" to "manual", rebooted, and that did the trick for me. There is still a lag of a few seconds before a connections but no where nearly as bad as before.

Any questions let me know. I hope this works for you as it did for me.

Also, if this needs to be moved to a more appropriate section of the forum please be my guest.

Thanks,
csimon

Click Start button and type "services.msc" into the "Search programs and files" box and press enter.
Scroll down until you see "AsusFanControlService" and then select to highlight it.
Right click on it and select "properties".
Switch "Startup Type" under the "General" tab from "Automatic" to "Manual".
Reboot.

Or

Services.msc>AsusFanControl>Properties>Manual>reboot

Then next time you reboot you should connect way faster however, to start the fan controller then you can do the following:

Just enter the Fan Xpert screen through Ai Suite II as usual and it will start

Or

Services.msc>AsusFanControlService>Start

Sorry if it's not very clear. If you have more questions please ask.

May I reiterate folks, this is merely a workaround and not a fix. You still need to start the fan controller (Fan Xpert) for it to work. It's just not loading on windows startup.

Thanks for the accolades though.

Apparently Fan Xpert must be fixed now with this new v.1.01.15 that is available at the Asus website. I installed it earlier and it boots automatically with no ethernet hang.

Let us know if it works for you.
