Maximus IV Extreme-Z LAN Port problem

Level 7
Hey guys,

MY MIVZ runs with BIOS 3202 version. When I boot to windows 7 the OS says that no cable is connected to the internet even though it was. at taskbar there is a red cross at the sign of the internet connection status.

When I check the section of gigabit lan in BIOS and selected the second option to allows the board to boot through the network it recognizes the port before booting to windows because I can see that the two lights were blinking.

Sometimes I need to unplug to power supply and plug it back in to have the computer recognize the LAN port.

I have the latest gigabit lan driver installed from intel homepage but this didn't resolve the issue.

Does anyone have the same problem??

Would be nice if someone has a solution for it.

I would not mind knowing the solution to this one too. Have had the same problem with one of my boards and never did find a fix for it.
