I have a problem very similar or identical to that experienced by nh29 here
i218-LM code 10 after restart without cable
Since purchasing my Let's Note laptop PC CF-LX3 I have been unable to connect to wired land only wifi.
I eventually got around to having a look in the device manager (I had thought that the problem must be mine since I had the problem from new)
In the device manager the driver for my Ethernet Chip has the yellow triangle and exclamation mark.
i am told that I have a can't start due to Code 10.
I have tried installing your latest drivers from your site
and installing them by first extracting them using 7-Zip and browsing to the 64 bit drivers using the method described on reddit here
I also tried letting the Device manage find drivers on the Internet (which told me that I had the most up to date drivers installed)
Add I also downloaded the Win81_64_d135311 file from my computer manufacturers site here in Japan
In all cases I am told that the driver installed but the the device can not be started
the driver was installed but
"this device cannot start. (Code 10)"
In all cases I uninstalled and deleted the previous drivers first.
Like nh29 I have a degree in electronic engineering (thought I am not chartered) .
On nh29's thread it was suggested that this has something to do with the Ultra Low Power settings. I am not sure how to turn these off. You send a tool to nh29 apparently after which he did not respond to the thread above so perhaps that cured things for him.
I see that in the Power Plan settings there are Intel CPPC Energy Efficient Optimization but in both they are now set to Plugged in Disabled, and Aggressiveness when plugged in at 0%
(I could have sworn that earlier today these settings were different! Perhaps one of the more recent drivers that I installed changed the settings).
My system is Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit Japanese (GUI language English)
The device manager says
This device cannot start. (Code 10)
The requested operation was unsuccessful.
In the advanced settings
Wake on Link is Off
and (aha) "Low power Ethernet" was on. I set it to off and disabled, then re-enabled the device but it still says Code 10.
The other thing that surprises me is that under driver details the files are in the Windows sub folder "System32" is that as it should be?
and the following three files in the same location
NicCo36.dll (this is the oldest file in system32)
According to the page below the first file e1d64x64.sys is an Intel "Gigabit" driver (sounds right)
And the version number of the driver in my Device manager is the same as that mentioned on the page above
