Btw sometimes one socket on a router can fail erratically for no reason and it does resemble that kind of failure. Change that to a different router port known good and see what happens.

Edit: unless it is a single port router that goes to a switch.. then you have a switch port failure, but exactly the same thing.

Jase2985: Ive noticed lately a lot of the threads where you have had issues lack a lot of helpful details to allow others to be able to help you.

maybe take the time to write up a well thought out detailed post with information on every piece of equipment involved, brand model number how its connected, draw a diagram if needed, or take photos and post them up.

will save countless questions and people left to guess what you are tying to explain or what's wrong.

As helpful as that post.

This started when I thought it as my new motherboard.. testing and questions on other forums lead to where I am now. Thanks for your 2 cents worth though

who is to say the old mother board was working as it should have been?

these things do happen sometimes, new components reveal flaws or faults that were not there before.

If you're in Auckland or the Waikato, talk to @coffeebaron here in the forums.

Keep calm, and carry on posting.
