Windows 7: Onboard LAN drivers

Onboard LAN drivers

Is there a universal Microsoft driver for on board Ethernet??

I have a Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 (rev. 2.0)

Onboard Lan
Lan Chipset Marvell 88E1116
Max Lan Speed 10/100/1000Mbps

I don't want to buy a new Ethernet card but looks like I can never find a solution. Whenever doing gaming on downloading,anything intense the connection fails or disconnects intermittently. I called ISP and they came out and everything was fine. They couldn't reproduce any problems. I remember in Vista I didn't have a problem as long as I didn't install the chipset drivers. This time I had to when installing Win OS 7 because I had no internet.

I couldn't find a driver on Gigabyte page, so I downloaded NVIDIA.

I'm pretty sure the problem is related to the Ethernet Driver. I remember something about Comcast sends to many packets and the Ethernet controller gets confused and freezes for a second or fails.

When this happens, I usually have to disconnect power from the modem, wait a few seconds and then turns back on. Sometimes if I just disable the card and then enable problem is solved.

You said in your original post, that you have a Marvell LAN, so aren't going to find the answer by installing Nvidia drivers. Go to Marvell's site and download the latest driver for your card. You can enter the part number on the right-hand side of the page.
