Intel I-217V ethernet adapter problem
I am not sure if this should be posted here or in the network & sharing forum, but I think it is some form of driver problem, so I am posting here.
I have a new Gigabyte GA-Z97X-UD7 TH board, which has an Intel I-217V ethernet adapter on board. I have installed the Intel software (latest release from their website).
I have had problems with the 'properties' page from the start. Clicking on the tabs almost always causes the device manager to hang. The best result I have had is to disable the ethernet controller in the BIOS, start windows, remove the driver, reboot with the controller enabled, install the software, and then reboot . However, it only works for a while, and then has the same problems as described before.
If I use the Task Manager to kill the properties page it will never come back until a reboot, and a right click on the ethernet adapter in the Device Manager causes it to hang.
Now I find that each reboot seems to lose my IPv4 settings, which makes the network inaccessible until I reset the settings. I have a fixed IP and gateway set. The only way to get the network on each new boot is to set the IP to DHCP and then cancel the reboot, then set my own values in the boxes and select OK.
Any ideas as to a sensible, reliable fix?
Thanks in advance!
