Internet Connection Loads the CPU

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I think I have some problem but I never encountered such thing before. You see I was using a router for 4-5 years and everything was fine. Now I decided to go back to the "direct" way - the internet cable into the PC, because I don't need a router anymore. But the thing is for some reason when I connect the PPoE connection and it loads my CPU for no apparent reason. If I disconnect the PPoE and everything goes back to normal. Is there some option that may cause such load on the CPU? First of all I thought it was some software related problem but I closed ALL programs, it was literally just the windows running and its the same.

I used direct connection cable<->pc back in the days but I never had such problem before.

Its not steady but it goes between 40-50%. If its disconnected the load is ~5-10% (obviously).

This is weird redface.gif Have you got any programs starting up when you plug in your ethernet? Like AV updating, windows updating anything? Maybe monitor the fluctuations for an hour and see if it drops or keeps increasing.

You can check Task Manager and see what processes or services are taxing on your CPU.

Try This:

Start> Right-click My Computer> Properties> Device Manager> Right-click your internet adapter (click the arrow to enlarge the one you are using, say Family Gigabyte LAN or whatever it is)> properties> advanced> Interrupt Moderation> set it to On> Apply/Okay.

That might help with CPU Load by sending packets in groups rather than on the go to lower CPU Utilization. If it's on in the first place you could try turning it off and see how it goes.

The router is not an option anymore.

I am pretty sure its something with the PPoE config since if I disconnect and reconnect the load goes back to the normal levels.

I have found the problem. The load comes from the "Share internet connection" check box. But I don't know why it loads the CPU when the other PC is turned off and there's no receiving/sending between the two PCs. When I stopped the internet sharing and the load went down as it should be.
