    tryed to uninstall last 5 windows updates
    changed the cable to 3 difference 1's jsut incase it was the cable
    reinstalled all my brivers for my system useing driver geneus backup that ive done
    tryed putting 2 old backup hard drives that i have with windows 7 and windows xp for backup
    done these commands lines ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew in cmd propt
    defaulting the system boot ini and config due to i disable most of the startup programs and boot.ini thought msconfig
    defaulted the bios jsut incase the system was over heating but had the system running at 3.8 for ages with out any problems


EDIT -

Are you sure you got chipset drivers installed correctly? They also include ethernet driver.

do you have a spare NIC card you could test to see if the motherboard one is physically broken then?

try that :arrow: http://support.asus.com/FAQ/detail.aspx ... E194742F93

sounds completely like a driver issue. its unusual for an onboard nic to fail, unless damaged by force. you 'may' get a slight performance boost by using a PCi nic ofc, and they're very cheap..
there's a lot more tests than the ones you stated to test where a connection is failing too. ping, tracert etc. though i'd check proper driver installation first seeing as other pc's and consoles connect fine. like you said it can be cables or even the connectors/connection ports, assignment clashes in devices manager (usually only a prob with two similar items installed). it's always hard to see what/where problems are without more info or hands on.

going by the P >6< T SE i'd say 6 series was a good place to start. its most likely a generic answer applying to m-boards from series 3 to 6. i could be wrong, and i'm too lazy to dig through manufacturers info :wink:
check device manager and see if the driver is installed properly. follow THIS to step 4, if unsure how to check D.M.

sounds like an ethernet issue, there's a windows 7 update for realtek lan drivers, make sure you uninstall it and then grab the one from here: http://uk.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_S ... /#download

or install the one that came on the cd with the motherboard :)
This is my sandvich. There are many others like it, but this one is mine. My sandvich is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life. Without me, my sandvich is useless. Without my sandvich, I am useless. I must eat my sandvich true. I must shoot straighter than my enemy, who is trying to kill me. I must shoot him before he shoots me. I will. Before lunch I swear this creed: my sandvich and myself are defenders of my country, we are the masters of our enemy, we are the saviors of my life. So be it, until there is no enemy, but sandvich. Om nom.

Most ports have an LED to show if there is a connection being established.

You should be able to boot into safe mode with a basic network connection, if this works then you may either have malware stopping the connection, or you have something like nortons firewall or some other such program blocking the connection.

It is not always a driver fault, so you should be stopping all upper level programs that may interrupt a connection first.

If you have a connection established, then don't try any more driver changing. Have you scanned for malware ? Have you turned off all firewalls ?
