Wired Ethernet connection Problem

    If there is a yellow flag in device manager the driver isnt working properly. If I were you I would re-install the most recent version

    I went to the Asus website and the drivers for my ethernet port (JMICRON LAN DRIVERS) will not run. An error message pops up that says: Fail to Call ProcInitSetupArg!
    I tried looking for updates through the device manager, but it doesn't find any.

    There is obviously a problem with the system. You could try to do a repair install to fix the problem files. There is a tutorial on how to do that here in the tutorial section.

    I did the repair install, and it is still having the same problem.

    Does your BIOS find the ethernet card?

    Sorry, how do I figure that out? In my device manager the Ethernet Controller appears with a yellow flag, is that what you mean?

    Have you tried uninstalling it or rolling the driver back?

    I uninstalled the driver
    manually installed the drivers from Asus' support site
    Manually updated the driver in the device manager by locating the files I just installed
    success it's fixed. thank you.
    Any idea what the Base System Device's are though? I don't know which drivers to install for those

    Usually those are downloaded by Windows. Those are the drivers, that you can install by downloading the newest chipset.

    My wired connection did the same thing this morning. Said Unidentified network. Ran the trouble shooter which fixed it. After reboot it's working again.
