    Audio latency on my DAW "Intel(R) Ethernet Connection (2) I219-V" the culprit???


      Hello, I recently purchased a new system (running Windows 10 Pro) for music production, whose specs I have just attached down here. I have audio glitches and playing cursor intermittency on my digital audio workstation of choice (Bitwig Studio 2.1.4), but I tested the problem is present even on Ableton Live 9.7.4. After doing some research on the internet I found out that the NIC might be the culprit. And for real as soon as I uninstall the Intel Ethernet Connection either via device manager or via BIOS the lag completely disappears even in complex projects and I noticed this happens even if I just switch the router off. The cursor intermittency can last for over 4 seconds, during the lag nothing on the screens is moving not even the mixer faders. Audio glitches occur more rarely. I tried to update every possible drivers and asked the pc manufacturer for some advice. They think it can't depend on software and that I should substitute the Intel NIC with another brand but I am not quite sure. Bitwig was running perfectly in my old system with full-fledged ethernet load and onto Windows 8.1...
