prob with Realtek 8111D (nic/lan driver)
Hello, I am running Windows 7 64 bit on:
GIGABYTE GA-EX58-UD3R LGA 1366 Intel X58 ATX Intel
using the onboard nic
LAN: Realtek 8111D
Here is my problem. I can get to the internet with limited (to almost none) connectivity. I can get onto world-of-warcraft and get 60 fps for hours on end with no lag at all, I can have bit-torrent running for hours with no issues, however when I try to browse internet pages it just doesn't connect, and quickly too..like it can't resolve dns or something - not like it's waiting for a response from some site out there (the error message comes up immediatly. I tried this on firefox too and same thing. I disabled ipvx6 and to no avail. I tried using opendns, and that was no help. I am using a router but my other computers hooked up to it (xp) don't have any problems. On the other end of this, I can't find any drivers for Windows 7 from realtek. The vista 64 won't install (says this driver is only for vista) and the xp64 won't install (says can't install this driver on vista)...LOL.
I don't know why it connects sometimes an not others but once it starts not working it just degrades to no website connections. I have tried the tool that's part of Windows 7 to dianose the issue but it doesn't find one. I am confused because I'm getting wicked fast connections to Wow and with bittorrent, it's just the internet browsers that won't connect...I have to hit reload like a dozen times before it catches and then maybe it downloads the page, maybe not? Also, I have re-installed Windows 7 and the default driver (i think it's xp 32bit) from realtek..because without that driver the nic card doesn't work at all.
PS, I have ubuntu cd install to run from memory and I can get on and don't have any connection problems either so I'm assuming it is NOT a hardware issue.

Hey, I think I had the same problem as you. More info here.
What I think you did was use windows update to update your network adapter driver. The driver they recommend may cause problems with your internet connection. I would go in to the Device Manager and roll back that driver. I hope that solves your problem.
