    Best driver for intel gigabit 82579v and windows 8.1 (low DPC count)


      Hi guys,


      I'm experiencing bad (distorted) sound (buffer underruns appearing as drop outs, clicks or pops.) when my network usage is average or high. I attached a LatencyMon report.

      My motherboard is ASUS P8p67 pro and my network is intel gigabit 82579v


      I have tried the most recent drivers and a random old windows 7 drivers. Windows 7 drivers seems to work better than the last drivers 20.7 ProWin64 but LatencyMon is still showing medium DPC count.


      What driver should I use?

      Should I uninstall windows 8.1 and go back to windows 7?

      If I really want to keep windows 8.1, do I have to buy a new gigabit desktop Ethernet adapter?


      It seems that I also have problems with usb drivers...
