    DP55WB Windows 7 64bit network problems

    janvb

      Max. interop speed with Linksys SLM2008 ethernet switch is limited to 10Mb/s.
      82578 driver installed is version 11.0.41.0

      When trying to install the latest drivers (PROWIN7X64.exe)  I get error message that this driver is not the right one for this OS, installation aborts.

      Os is Windos7 x64

      Please provide right drivers or installation program - or any other fix - that will enable 1Gb/s

          do a clean install of win7, then chipset drivers, then lan-drivers. your error-msg makes no sense.

            The message says:

             

            "This software version is not designed for this version of Microsoft Windows."

             

            Makes indeed no sense...but that is what it is.

              then you don't have win7 64bit or loaded the wrong file. i use the same driver on the same os and it works.

                Well, trust me, it is Windows 7 64bit. Anyway, I tried also the LAN-allOS-14.7_PV_Intel_202802.exe with same reslut.

                  Still trying to install the new drivers, getting the message that these are for the wrong OS.

                  Am I the only one with this problem?

                    You are correct about this message.  I had a clean install with Win 7 64-bit on a DG45ID using ProWin7x64.exe for the LAN.  I attempted a reinstall due to several non-LAN issues and got this message.  The ME was installed between the onboard graphics and 9600GT video card this time.  I'm waiting on parts to try again but I recommend what an Intel rep told someone here.  Wipe the drive or at least do a full format of the drive on installing the OS.  The extra partition may be confusing some installs.

                      Thanks for the suggestion. I work however with as single partition, so I do not know if we have the same origin of the problem.

                      Do you now in which directory the installer expands the driver files? I will try to do the installation manually, but I am unable to locate the files.

                        OK - succeeded in manual install of the drivers. Network adaptor works fine now.

                          I successfully installed the driver, but after starting Windows I have no network connection. The Windows Device Managers reports that the device did not start (code 10). When switching off and switching on the 82578DC Gigabit Network Connection, the network connection is established. Any suggestions for changing any (timeout) settings that would solve this?

                            Unless you have another add-in network card I doubt changes in the timeout should be needed.  Could be a poorly seated NET cable or your onboard Gigabit but I haven't seen complaints about that.  I change connections to my router frequently and don't see this, but now have an issue with SQL Server 2008.

                              I don't have another add-in network card. Yesterday I thought the problem was solved after installing some 30 Windows 7 updates, but today the card didn't start automatically. I still got the impression it is some timing issue. Do you know any settings I could try? B.t.w. Happy New year!

                                Edit: Be sure the downloaded file is not corrupt.  This is frequently indicated by an icon that is not normal, even blank.  Simply transfering to another computer can corrupt drivers.

                                 

                                Happy New Year!  Sorry to hear of more problems.  My frankenstein system of old parts is less than desirable so I was considering a 2 RJ-45 system.  Intel doesn't have one yet.  Sounds like the driver simply isn't working but I would reinstall it or try another version.  More info such as operating system and router, if present, might help.  The only timing changes I have done were for software and the tweaks were soon outdated when microsoft provided a program that was much better.  I doubt this is a timing issue.  When I make connection changes to my router I sometimes have to wait a minute for windows to get around to resetting the connection.  Sometimes I just do reboots.  A second network connection would help avoid changes but if Intel hasn't done it I have my doubts.  I notice there is a wait for link option in Connection properties > Advanced.  Look at the Gigabit Master Slave Mode Caution.  I thought I saw a setting for timing yesterday but now I can't find it.

                                    These all sound like power problems on startup.  Significant power must be used by the connection since disconnection is associated with a power saving mode.  The only simple problem I could see is if the shield tab that rests on the port is not touching.  Older boards lack most of these tabs so other grounding issues must have occured.  Anyone know why I lost front panel USB on moving my motherboard?  The power supply is cheap but 500 W.
