In April I bought an ASUS P4S8X motherboard and built my P4 2.8GHz system on it. I had to flash the BIOS to even get XP to install on it so I know I'm on the latest version. I have been having intermittent problems connecting to the internet through my DSL connection lately. When my desktop stops working, I get out my notebook and it works fine. I can ping 127.0.0.1 when I can't connect to the internet (provided I disable the firewall.) This seems to be a problem with the onboard NIC on this MB. Any ideas???? Please???

Thanks

Just to be certain, and cover the bases, Have you verified you do not have a virus or a worm?

There are several out that can cause just this type of problem.

I'm running Norton SystemWorks 2002 with AntiVirus and Norton Personal Firewall. I formatted the drive and reinstalled XP two weeks ago and when XP came up to the part where it sends the activation to MS, it failed and I had to phone it in!

After talking to my DSL provider I'm think this is a problem with the NIC card on the motherboard. I've sent a case to ASUS support asking if they have any diagnostic tools I can have to fully test the NIC.

The easies way would be to install a nic card and see if that works. Then you’ll know for sure if it's the onboard or not, and if it works keep the nic card and disable the onboard in BIOS.
