More so the wireless part is. At the end of the chipset driver install, it asks if I want to install the nvidia firewall and forceware Network Access Manager, and then if I want to turn it on – I say yes to all. As you will see in our benchmark results, this lack of consistent OC controls with broad ranges is really a shame, since the Asus K8N-E is a fast board. All-in-all, the K8N-E is a really mixed bag, with some adjustments that are exemplary, and others, missing or downright crude. Like try connecting it drictly to the modem and buy pass the router completely. Any ideas are greatly appreciated!

Asus did not include any chipset voltage adjustments at all on the K8N-E, a feature that many will miss. We were more than a bit surprised, however, to find the uneven range of adjustment options on the K8N-E. If you need to connect a floppy, make sure that you pay close attention to the location of the floppy in your case compared to the K8N-E. But if the router is not seeing the computer and not giving them an IP address that a problem and I have yet to figure out how to get file sharing to work over it.


Routers are a pain to deal with. At the end of the chipset driver install, it asks if I want to install the nvidia firewall and forceware Network Access Manager, and then if I want to turn it on – I aeries yes to lam. Some of the fastest current memory requires 2.

Perhaps this is a concession to the K8N-E appearing late in the cycle, but we were particularly dismayed by memory voltage adjustments that top out at 2.

Asus is normally masterful in their board layouts, with careful attention to function and placement of board components. I can go into the forceware Network Access Manager and make changes, but they don’t seem to effect anything. You may have to register before you can post: Is there anyway Comcast could disconnect the mac, and not the pc, eventhough they are behind a linksys router? About 2 months ago the mac stopped connecting to the internet, and asud thought that the NIC had just died.

The computer is behind a Linksys router.

Results 1 to 3 of 3 Thread: Socket Roundup, Part 3: Fortunately, the capacitors are on the short side, making it likely that most big overhanging heatsinks will clear xsus caps. IDE connectors are in our asks upper right edge location, though Asus has placed the floppy connector on the bottom right edge of the board – a less desirable location in many case layouts. I have comcast cable broadband – I set it up so the ethernet cable goes from their router straight to my computer, trying both the onboard LAN and NIC – no luck.


I got frustrated, said screw it, and put in a brand new NIC expecting it to work. I may have messed up the driver install though because I had to manually choose aka force the driver to install. Nvidia firewall to blame? Results 1 to 3 of 3. While 6 SATA connections are nice, you will see in our overclocking tests that this arrangement makes serious overclocking with a SATA drive all but impossible.

Any ideas are greatly appreciated! I then installed all the chipset drivers except audio and ethernet – didn’t work. The K8N-E is typical Asus, which means that the layout is very good indeed.

The pin ATX connector and 4-pin 12V are almost ideal, since both are out of the way on board edges and do not need to be snaked over or around any components. Some times it works some times aaus doesnt. I pretty much gave up after messing with it for a few days and now every now and swries I try something new that reminds me I need to post this question in networking forums Normally, I have a linksys router after their provided router to split the connection to two computers – a mac and pc.
