    intel 82579v - lost gigabit down capabilities


      I have a motherboard with the above adapter embedded. Gigabit enabled and working. Fiber internet went down (fiber break) and when it was restored, the card no longer gets gigabit downloads, but still gets gigabit uploads. It currently caps out at around 100mb (sometimes as high as 130) for the down speed, even when set to force gigabit full duplex.

      Any ideas as to what could be the issue? Can an adapter fail physically in such a specific and strange way?

      Drivers are up to date, have reinstalled Windows 8.1, replaced cables, etc.

      Any ideas would be most appreciated.
