im posting here out of complete frustration as this ethernet card refuses to work correctly.
I have an asus sabertooth z77 board
connection is wired via BT Homehub 3.0
Upon cold startup no connection is detected and i get an error stating "hardware or driver issue"
Now i have read a few threads and have tried updating/downgrading BIOS
Fresh install of NIC drivers
Install NVRAM utility
and updating intel ME
also checking power managment settings on the controller.
I have to disable/enable the device in device manager for it to work again.
From a restart there are no issues
any advice is great as at the minute im sick and tired of trying
I have exactly the same problem on the asus p8z77-pro v board...
tried all recent intel drivers, flash update, bios updates.. no go.
looked everywhere. finally ordered a pci-e nic which is ridiculous but im so sick of have to disable and enable the device on every cold boot. Still want it fixed though, was not a cheap motherboard and went with it because it had an intel chipset!!
