ok, a friend of mine has asked igf i can give him some help, but i have no knowledge in 775 mobo's - his problem lies with this board: Gigabyte GA-8i865GME-775-RH rev 2.0 Now, hes described his problem to me, and id like to know if its a driver issue or something else. He has said that he uses the ethernet adapter on the motherboard to access the internet, but after a re install or something, he cant access the internet at all using the ethernet port again, and the mobo CD he had has decided to dissapear. if anyne can locate a driver or any advice for him, that would be great! me being an AMD man, i have no clue. cheers!
