I am sorry if this question has been answered, or if this is being posted in the wrong place.
I have an ASUS z77 motherboard with an Intel 82579V Gigabit Network Connection. I am getting slow speeds when playing some online intensive games. After searching support forums, a solution that popped up was enabling ipv4 offloading in the network controller's advanced settings. I went and I changed the settings, The connection was dropped, but it immediately reestablished itself. However, the ipv4 offload setting I had changed reverted back to disabled. I tested several other settings, each revert back whenever I click "OK" to close the advance settings dialog box.
I am running windows 8 and I am running driver version 220.127.116.11.
