Hi I have a Atheros AR8151 gigabit on-board LAN on my Gigabyte G41M-Combo with Windows 7 x64. I was wondering if any one has managed to get this working in one gigabit mode. I went in the driver options and there is no gigabit duplex option. Also tried the latest driver off gigabyte website but still no luck.

Any one have any ideas?

set to auto and as long as its connected to a gigabit switch it should show as connected at gigabit speed. What do the interface properties show in auto mode?

Yeah I'd double check the network switch and cable are capable of gigabit.

cable is definately the first thing to check. gigE is much more sensitive to crap cables than 100
