Hello - Asus does not have a Windows 10 Network driver listed: P8Z77-V PRO | Motherboards | ASUS USA
I have tried the generic MS Windows 10 driver, have tried Intel Proset. Tried Windows 7 and Linux.
The behavior is the same. After long shutdown and power off, network does not work. Shutdown/restart
does not help. Full power shutoff without shutdown and restart does resolve most of the time.
I have read some where in the design specs for the 82579V PHY where it seem that there is a process
whereby it switches from PCIe to SMBus when in power off state. I'm wondering if there is a problem
There seem to be lots of threads around the net about bad behavior with 82579V PHY, but can't seem
to find a solution the works reliably.
According to Microsoft* https://support.microsoft.com/en-ph/kb/943104 (note this is third party website for reference only, not under Intel's control) this is a generic error message, could be the device driver for device itself. Since there is no driver from Asus* , this could be part of the problem as well. As this is an onboard NIC (Here is the information about onboard NIC support http://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/network-and-i-o/ethernet-products/000006628.html?wapkw=oem+network) in which the controllers was supplied to Asus for integration on their system based on their specs. It is recommended to check with Asus* directly if they can provide driver support and further check on the hardware aspect.
Hope the above information clarified.
Did some more testing and here is what I've observed:
1) Windows Shutdown followed by total AC power off -> wait a few hours -> power up = Adapter Fail
2) Adapter Fail -> Shutdown -> Restart = Adapter Fail
3) Adapter Fail -> Shutdown -> Wait a few minutes -> Restart = Adapter Fail
4) Adapter Fail -> total AC power off ( no shutdown ) -> Wait a minute -> Restart = Adapter Ok
5) Adapter Ok -> Windows Shutdown -> Standby / keep AC power on -> wait a few hours -> power up = Adapter Ok
There is something happening when AC is off for significant time - I am guessing probably power saver / BIOS / Firmware related.
Hello, I'm having an issue with a similar MB, P8Z77-I DELUXE. My Wifi, Bluetooth adapter work but for some reason my 82579v suddenly stopped working. It's been like that for a couple of days and almost had it identify my network cable when setting it to 100MB Half Duplex mode. That didn't work and it's been like this for a week. I've tried a new os, reinstalling BIOS, hard reset, leaving it off for 5-6 hours. Asus's support page doesn't have new drivers since 2014 for my adapter. I'm considering getting a USB to Ethernet adapter but I'd like to avoid that. Please if you could, help me out mate
@Intel... 82579V is seem a bit like like a lemon ... NEED THIS RESOLVED !!! ... been over 3 years of complaints from various folks and still no definitive answer
@ Yuvraj - unfortunately I have not found a solution ... tried MS drivers, tried Intel drivers, tried Window7 - no luck
Tried Linux-Mint - same problem ... adapter goes AWOL when power is removed for a length of time - PHY does not come online on restart.
@Yuvraj - At the moment, the only workaround I have found is to completely turn off power ( do not shutdown ) - for 30 seconds and then restart.
This cannot be too good for the disk drive - but don't have much choice.

@Yuvraj - if machines is left with not power for any length of time ( an hour or more ), I seem to have a problem. If machine if total powered off ( not shutdown / just kill power ), wait 1 minute for power capacitors to drain, and then restarted - Network Interface seem to recover.
We tried to test in our lab but did not encountered the said issue.
Please contact Asus* to check if there are other user with the same board also experiences this issue.
Can you provide more reference information about the design regarding PCIe to SMBus,
so that we can further check.
The difference between 82579LM and 82579V is 82579LM supports vPro, macsec,
in terms of connectivity functionality should be the same.
