Windows 7: prob with Realtek 8111D (nic/lan driver)

win 7 ultimate 64-bit beta
 
 
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.
Any ideas??
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.

I had a similar problem. Check the driver in Device Manager. Windows used the 8111B driver for the 8111D network adapter. Solution was to force it to use the 8111D driver and remember not to update it in Windows Update.

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.
