There really isn't much difference b/w the M$ driver performance and the Intel. The Marvell one will be slightly better IF you use the Marvell port however, that controller should ne used with optical drives and HDDs really.
If I was fine with 250MB reads, then I would have left teh dang SSD in the laptop.
That makes no sense. Seq speeds hardly make a difference for a SSD. Even then, if you are using the Intel SATA 6Gb/s ports you should not be getting SATA 2 speeds. You can simply load the RST driver 11.6 or 11.7 through device manager manually if anything. However, the exe runs fine in windows 8.
Internet, latency went up. That is not fine in any way. Same hardware. Drivers by INtel would bring it back to normal.
Find your chipsets/controllers and manually load the windows drivers in device manager if the exes do not work.
Also, once you get your LAN running then most drivers will be downloaded and installed anyways.
