Proper settings for Z87 intel I217-V onboard nic

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello, so this is my first intel Nic I've had on a motherboard I've had realtek for the last while and it's always flowed awesome. But now with my new Z87 UD4H board my internet speed feels clogged when I'm downloading. For instance when I'm downloading a game off steam when using my old realtek my web surfing was barely if at all interrupted. But with the intel it feels like I'm surfing with a 56k connection. Now with the intel there are additional settings in the internet connection properties is there anything that can fix this? I find this quite ironic as most people rant and rave how awesome Intel nics are but I would take my realtek anyday over this.

Does anyone know of a good guide on settings for these things?

Possibly more to do with the mobo and the software that came with it rather than the Intel NIC it uses. Make sure its connected using 100 Mbps Full Duplex to the router (or 1000 Full Duplex if router supports it). Maybe its defaulted to 10 Half duplex or something silly like that.

Also in the network setup remove IP6 support. I'm not a 100% sure but I often see that bound to the driver first and I think it slows down DNS resolution while it tries it first.

You could give it a shot with the most recent NIC driver from the Intel site.

Or even detect the drivers your PC lacks or has unupdated: http://www.ma-config.com/en

fresh install new drivers. I believe I tried both drivers as whats on Intels site and what Gigabyte has.

Should I remove Ipv6? I thought it was better/ faster to use it?

If you don't have a specific IPv6 deployment (that you have manually set up yourself), you won't be using it and would be fine to disable.

I've seen issues on some systems where it waits for a timeout on the link local IPv6 address causing delays, should be worth a shot to disable it.

Correct. That's what is was getting at. If its bound first then your computer seems to waste time trying to resolve the v6 address first before moving on to v4.

I'm having similar issues with the onboard I217-V NIC on my Asus Maximus Impact running Win8 64 (UEFI or Bios-Mode won't make a difference)
Spikes within games and even in in Win-Explorer.

After trying several different things I figured as soon you install any available NIC driver it auto-installs the Microsoft Kernel Debug Network Adapter which is causing those lags.
This also causes System Protection to turn off by default.

Uninstalling the Debug-Adapter helps getting avoid of the spikes but Kernel Debuging is still turned on, as well as many many weird Eventlog-Entrys and those keep showing up.
To disable Kernel debug put this command in console: bcdedit /debug off - This command won't work if you're using UEFI Secure Boot, if so you gotta temporarily disable it.

Games will run just fine after doing so, however I'm not happy with this solution either as there is definitely a compatibility issue and still some DMI latency issues.
