  1. Hey all,
    Anyone have this mobo? When I enable the 2nd LAN port (nVidia) my system seems to get problems like freezing and whatnot. Ever since I disabled the second port, things are running smooth as ever.

    Anyone figure out a way to enable the LAN port without the problems?

    i dont own your motherboard but mine is similar in design and when i enabled the second lan port after windows has been installed i got serious stability problems - apartently this is an nforce2 chipset thing so its NOT a fault motherboard (we hope) i happens to all us lot with NF2 motherboards.
    the only solution (i know of) is to format ur HDD, enable the lan port and reinstall windows - apartently that solves it
    hope that helps

    Yeah I worked this from a fresh install like three times and since I disabled the 2nd LAN (the nVidia one) I've been running stable since. I've heard there may possibly be a drivers issue, or an IRQ conflict, but I'm still not sure. There's some active thread in another forum about it. Hopefully nForce cleans up a bit soon. It would be nice to have full functionality
