Watchout 5.5 on Asus P9X79 WS Mainboards with Dual-LAN

With Ver. 5.5 we experience troubles with display computers built on Asus P9X79 mainboards with Intel dual-LAN adapters - only one of the adapters works with Watchout 5.5. 

ven though the production PC succeeds in testing the connection to a display PC, it generates an error when switching to online mode.


The Ver. 5.3.x works fine with both LAN adapters. 


Do you have any experience with this issue?

No we have not experienced these issues, but that might be for one of several reasons:


- only one adapter is to be used normally (Windows tweaking list). All others should be disabled.

  See: http://forum.dataton.com/topic/734-watchout-5-technical-notes/


- are they really Intel both of them, on these MB:s?

  Usually one is Intel and the other is Marwell. Only Intel works for Wake-On-LAN purposes, for example.


Any specific reason for using two LAN-adapters?
