        yes, have had exact same issues after updating on several DELL & HP boxes, thought it was a Switch problem 1st, then was able to roll back the driver on 2 of the HPs, but After reviewing several of the posts for the 825xx Drivers issues I suspect INTEL has a problem rolled up in these drivers and the installs whereby several items are getting wacked, I can see frm the forum that there is a problem WHY CANT INTEL

          I am seeing all the problems reported in this thread - dropouts, autonegotiation problems, DHCP problems, plus there is no option to set a WOL (power saving) speed (unlike Broadcom NICs).

           

          These NIC and drivers (seen a couple of drops/DHCP issues with DOS drivers too BTW!) are a PITA!

            Hi,

            Just want to report that I also have the same exact problem on my Optiplex 960 and 755.

            Connection will go to 10Mbit after some time. The link will go down and up for a second.

            The computer will also give some error about not reaching DNS.

            I also had the same problem on Windows 2008 with a E1000 card.

            Roll back to MS driver fixed the problem.

             

            Btw, any ideia how can I mass rollback the driver with GPO or logon script?

             

            Regards.

              Quick fix:

               

              Edit E1K6232.inf file (on the drivers folder) and do the following change (underlined):

               

              ;-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
              ; Intel(R) 82567LF-3 Gigabit Network Connection
              ;

               

              [E10DF.6.1.1]
              Characteristics = 0x84 ; NCF_HAS_UI | NCF_PHYSICAL
              BusType         = 5    ; PCI
              DelReg          = Advanced.DelReg
              AddReg          = e1k.reg, Copper.reg, Copper1000.reg
              AddReg          = Powermgmt.reg, Sips.reg
              AddReg          = TcpSeg.reg, RSS.reg, UninstallW2.reg, WakeOnSlot.reg
              CopyFiles       = winvista.CopyFiles, UninstallProg.CopyFiles
              *IfType         = 6     ; IF_TYPE_ETHERNET_CSMACD
              *MediaType      = 0     ; NdisMedium802_3
              *PhysicalMediaType = 0  ; NdisPhysicalMediumUnspecified

               

              [E10DF.6.1.1.Services]
              AddService = e1kexpress, 2, winvista.Service, winvista.EventLog

               

              [E10DF.6.1.1.CoInstallers]
              AddReg=CoInstaller_AddReg, CoInKS.reg
              CopyFiles=CoInstaller_CopyFiles

               

              [E10DF.6.1.1.HW]
              Include=machine.inf
              Needs=PciIoSpaceNotRequired
              AddReg=MSI.reg

               

              You will then be able to enable or disable Sips on the interface. By default it is disabled.

              Be aware that the driver will become unsigned.

              Let's now hope that Intel makes Sips disabled by default, and give us a signed driver with that key in place.

                The following .reg also worked for me:

                 

                Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


                [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0007]
                "SipsEnabled"="0"

                [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0007\Ndi\savedParams\SipsEnabled]
                "ParamDesc"="System Idle Power Saver"
                "type"="enum"
                "default"="0"

                [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0007\Ndi\savedParams\SipsEnabled\Enum]
                "0"="Disabled"
                "1"="Enabled"

                 

                Be sure to match the [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{4D36E972-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}\0007] with yours. Look on Regedit for the NIC name.

                  Easiest fix is to remove the Intel installed drivers and go with the Microsoft supplied.  I believe the version shows as 10.5.  I just received 2 new Optiplex 960's that showed the same problem.

                    Adding the Sips.reg for the E1K6032.inf doesn't seem to work for the 82567-LM3 Nic. Do you have the Proset Tools installed?

                     

                    I've reported the SIPS issue at HP, they've come up with a tool to disable SIPS through registry, similar like your other post with the registry paths. But the NIC doesn't always have the same adapter number, this is why HP / Intel supplied the tool so that the tool can determine what the adapter number is and add the object to the registry.

                     

                    But you'll probably agree with that this should always be a settings which should be managed through driver properties. Can't figure out why Intel can't come up with a decent solution.

                     

                    By the way, the SIPS tool provided by HP (read: Intel) can be found here: http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/SoftwareDescription.jsp?lang=en&cc=nl&prodTypeId=12454&prodSeriesId=3785404&prodNameId=3785039&swEnvOID=2097&swLang=13&mode=2&taskId=135&swItem=vc-80464-1

                      Sorry to hear that it didn't worked for you.

                      Adding sips.reg is working perfectly for me with both DELL and Intel latest drivers.

                      Can you see the power saving setting on the "Power Saving" tab of the driver (device manager)?

                      Regards

                        I'm totally disappointed with my Intel NIC 82567LM in Dell E6400

                         

                        PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_10F5&SUBSYS_02331028&REV_03

                        Windows 7 x64

                        Drivers 10.0.2.2 Microsoft / 10.0.6.0 Intel / 10.1.6.0 Intel

                         

                        Tried all drivers possible, disabled Power Saving options both through driver UI and registry (as suggested above), nothing helps.

                         

                        I have no option to roll back to 10.5.x.x Microsoft of course.

                         

                        No auto-negotionation changes etc. helps. Also what really drives me mad is that it's been a slowly degrading problem! Can't imagine anything but connection to updates installed in background.

                         

                        Any ideas on a workaround, anyway? Throughout this thread we all have very random self-found explanations. Any statement from Intel / Dell Support anyone had?

                         

                        Let's raise couple of tickets?

                         

                        Cheers,

                        Arseny

                        It's been slowly degrading for some time, but I never had a chance / time to investigate further as had a Wi-Fi fail-over option everywhere, and only realized there's a problem today, when Ethernet NIC totally malfunctions showing 'Network Cable Unplugged'

                          2 options.  Go to device manager and delete the adapter.  When prompted delete the drivers.  The do a scan for new hardware.  I think that will give you the good drivers.

                           

                          Option 2, go to the settings and disable the VLAN setting.  I have seen this as a problem on several networks.

                            I found going back to the original Microsoft OS supplied drivers broke WOL... I am using the original release of Dell drivers (Optiplex 960) which seem the best of a bad bunch.

                              Not using WOL here but Intel AMT does work for remote power on/off with the Microsoft driver.

                                Thanks - getting AMT setup is on my to-do list so that just adds another reason. I use Ghost Solution Suite v2 and that only seems to use WOL.

                                  Read this thread with interest as I have a client we installed 7 new Dell Optiplex 780 pc's too all running win7 64bit all with the same issue of the network card loosing connectiong to the network when not in use. I have updated one of the machine with the manual registry have as mentioned above, it will be tested monday and I will update here when I get some feedback either way.

                                   

                                  btw running the latest network drivers from the dell website
