    82574L NIC on DZ77GA-70K failing repeatedly

    kakci

      My brand new mainboard with the latest BIOS (060) and Win7 x64 OS, fresh install and latest drivers, the ethernet controller on this board fails randomly (~ 1/day). When this happens the network connector appears as disconnected, and nothing will help to restore the connection, you have to either:

       

      • restart your computer, but sometimes it hangs during shutdown, and you have to reset,
      • reset your mainboard.

       

      Disabling and re-enabling the connection will not working either, the disable command will hang indefinitely.
