so you think thats the cause...whats the fix??
I did a mb swap by the end but that was because I din't want to go the route of getting another NIC to put in. Before that I tried fresh install of OS, drivers all that good stuff to no avail.
As I mentioned earlier though in theory you should be able to simply disable both LANs in the bios/uefi and use a usb wifi adapter to test or use another NIC pci or pci-e based. Both are cheaper than trying another mb.
Short answer, there is no fix. Intel has many NIC issues for some reason anymore. Some say it's drivers and updated drivers caused it, however even rolling back to original release drivers I still experienced it. And towards the end it got way bad like it started to do it everyday, that's when I said screw it and got another mb to toss in to remedy the issue. First and foremost thing I did was make sure it wasn't an Intel NIC so I went with a E2200 killer gaming one instead on my new mb lol.Edited by rx7racer - 11/9/13 at 5:43pm
