    Intel(R) 82579V loss connection


      Hello, first sorry for my bad english, i am from german.

      I bought me the gamer PC acer aspire G5910 with Intel(R) 82579V lan adapter.

      I loose the connection if i hear musik in spotify (i have windows 8.1 64bit)

      or i loose the connection if open steam to play a game..every time.

      i installed this driver: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=22026&ProdId=3299&lang=deu&OSVersion=Windows%208*&DownloadType=Utilities%2C%20Tools%20und%20Beispiele

      i download it,unrar it,and then i open CMD with admin rights and i typed in: cd\users\myname\downloads and then i press enter,then i was in the folder downloads and then i type 82579VSKUW64e.exe

      and i loose after the last command the lan connection,then i was connectet again with the internet.My internet is better now, but sometimes i loose the connection, or if i start steam/spotify.

      Have anyone ideas or tipps for me?

          Hi Darilari,


                   The Intel(R) 82579V lan is an embedded NIC on the Acer Predator G5910, I would suggest you to get in touch with Acer for validated drivers customized for their system in Windows 8.1.


                  I manage to check on Acer website and found they have drivers available for Windows 7 OS only. Here is the website you can check:

          http://www.acer.com.ph/ac/en/PH/content/drivers. Select the Desktop for the Group, Predator as the series, Predator G5910 as the product.


                Hope this helps.
