While working in windows 7 x64 rc, every so often, the little networking icon gets a little yellow ! sign over it.
I thought at first my internet connection had been lost, but i couldnt' connect to the router SO i tried my laptop, and it connected fine to the router. And the internet was working.
Now, about once an hour, this happens. It is only fixable by disabling, then reenabling the ethernet adaptor itself. The adaptor simply stops transmitting and receiving, randomly for no reason.
I have an nvidia EVGA 680i SLI (nvidia) board, it has 2 on board 10/100/1000 ethernet ports. I have tried uninstalling them (with deleting the driver) and then reinstalling them, no such luck.
Worked perfectly in build 7077, but in the release candidate, i'm getting this recurring problem.
The problem, to reitterate, is not with the router, or with my internet connect. I'm saying that to stem the expected tide of "trun off your router, leave it for 30 seconds, turn it back on again" type responses
If anyone can help me, i would really appreciate that.
BTW< i have the latest drivers for my motherboard and so on. I have tried both WITH and WITHOUT the nvidia network manager. (network manager was incompatible with Vuze, and didn't solve the disconnects problem anyway).
Give me instructions if you need more information and i'll get it for you.. thank you so much.
Oh, and lastly, this is wired networking, in case you thought it might be a wireless problem. I've even tried using new ethernet cables. TO NO AVAIL!!
