    I experienced a similar problem and by setting the motherboard to all
    default settings it finally worked ok. I thought it was the drivers
    for the Ethernet card but not the case. Not being a computer whiz I
    just use the process of elimination.

    when you first boot the computer, as soon as you hear the MB beep,
    hit the Del key. just use on screen instructions from there.
