I hope that you had better luck! Hanging around the local strip center PC shop recently I found that many were looking to snatch Z490 Asus mobos on sale, now that the very expensive Z590's have been announced. But the word was that ASUS Prime, Hero and many of the Strix lineup all maintain to have (Ethernet) LAN issues. Many Amazon buyers in their frustration purchased separate PCIe Ethernet cards to get online and for a quick fix. I checked Amazon across their entire Asus Z490 series offering and found lots (24) of LAN issues to be the case.

Supposedly Asus has introduced a reissue of the boards with an actual LAN hardware replacement? Previous Bios updates and hours playing with new and old drivers never worked. Asus tech service is dancing around the issue. But Amazon as late as this past December is still issuing RMA's and selling these boards with no fixes. Looks like many such boards are still on the shelves with these problems. How do I differentiate a 'Hero' board which apparently has the Lan fix on-board? For curiosity I checked Gigabyte at Amazon and found none of these LAN issues among the certified buyers. I have been using Asus mobos for a very long time but now...what's the scoop? WTF!
