Network card problem?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone how is it going?
A long while back I was having a problem with my PC BSOD'ing. I traced it back with some members here to my network card overloading, and they told me to reinstall windows. I did, and I don't think the problem happened again after that ( if it did, it did only like 2 times and never happened since ). However, I think the problem has resurfaced.
Sometimes the PC would get so slow, and if I'm talking on teamspeak or something the voice would get so robotic. Also, the ping is spiking like crazy both to router and to various servers ( it reached 75 ms to router when it's max 2 ms ) Whenever I dc the ethernet cable tho, it's fine again. But sometimes I have to restart the PC and disconnect the ethernet cable and reconnect it multiple times ( from both the router and the PC end ) to have it work again. Also, while that happens, my PC keeps reporting " Network cable unplugged " even tho the cable is plugged from both sides, so I have to keep disconnecting & reconnecting it.
Also, one thing I noticed is last time this problem happened, I had some " Packet Loss Out " on teamspeak, however when it happened again and I reconnected the ethernet cable the problem was solved and the packet loss out was back to 0%.
Is this a problem with the router? Cable? Or worse, the motherboard?
PC specs are in the sig. Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.
P.S : Also have been getting some random dc's that last for a few secs ( without the robotic voice problem and stuff, but it's still an annoying problem when it comes to online gaming).

Could be the port, the cable, the router/switch, any of it.

I'd start with the cable. Most cables people buy are notoriously cheap, and don't actually meet Cat 5e/6 standards even though it might be printed on the cable itself. Next, I'd try a different router/switch port. Lastly, you could invest in a $20 Ethernet card and see if the problem goes away. I doubt it's an expensive fix any way you look at it.

Tried a new cable and different ports on the router. Same problem happened, except this time it happened when I reconnected the HDMI cable to the computer ( dunno if that had anything to do with it), but the screen went white for like 30 secs, then when the PC came back it was slow as hell and I noticed HUGE ping spikes ( like ping in google went from 30 to 1000 when even the highest pressure on the internet puts it at like 300 and noone was even using the internet at that time ). Then the PC totally froze and I had to hard reset it with the restart button on the computer case.
Is there even a slim chance this problem could be related to something else other than the network stuff on my PC? Also, could a bad router/cable actually cause the PC to freeze like that?

Sounds like you have more than networking issues. Might be motherboard or PSU related.

If you're running Windows 7 or Windows 8/8.1, try repairing system files with "SFC.EXE /scannow" from an elevated command prompt. If any corruption is detected and repaired, reboot and see if things improve.

If that doesn't help, try to identify what kind of networking chipset you have on the motherboard, and go to the motherboard manufacturer's support site and download and install the latest network driver. DO NOT use a "generic" networking driver, e.g. from the Realtek or Broadcom or Intel site unless you can't get one from the Motherboard site. Some chipsets have slightly different features and some are customized for the motherboard manufacturer and don't work right with generic drivers.

Finally if all else fails, you could swap your motherboard or get a PCIe LAN card as suggested above.

I'm sorry I didn't understand your thing about repairing system files. Could you explain it step by step?
Also, about the drivers, are you talking about the LAN driver here?

Open a CMD prompt as Administrator and type "sfc /scannow" at the command prompt. It should walk you through the steps.

Yes, I'm talking about the LAN driver.
