Windows 7: Have a problem with my realtek NIC can anyone help?

Have a problem with my realtek NIC can anyone help?

I had a BSOD, my first actually since I built this rig. I quickly checked out the dmp file and it seems to be caused by my realtek lan driver, or so I insinuate based on this pic I am providing. My network was stressed at the time of the BSOD so it does make sense that it may be connected to the dmp file pic I provided. My drivers are pretty old and my motherboard page does not seem to have any realtek updated drivers. Are there any other places to get newer realtek drivers for gigabyte 9XX boards?

PS I do have a some spare PCIE slots, might be a good idea to buy a backup NIC...what do you guys think? It's not like they are very expensive. I can probably find a 10/100/1000 for under 20 Euros.

Did you get just the one BSOD? If you got just the one and it's not a recurring thing, I wouldn't worry about it.

Got a few of the same type BSOD because of that old driver. But I went to realtek and grabbed a new driver. My motherboards driver was 2+ years old!. Haven't had a problem since the upgrade

Right now I would check all updates you might need to do a slew up them

Never hurts

What do you mean check all updates. All my other stuff regarding my mobo is up to date, I checked once I found out about the out of date LAN driver. My mobo does not have that many drivers to begin with. As far as all my other programs, I am anal about keeping them up to date.
