These were Related to L1C62x64.sys L1c PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller from Atheros Communications, Inc. Yours is 2+ years old


I would re-install newest available driver.

Thanks for the reply, do I download the driver from this website? Drivers for Atheros L1C and Windows 7

It seems to be outdated though. I used Device Manager to check my Atheros and it seems that it is updated (NDIS 6.20).

I've updated the driver to the 2010 Sept version. Hopefully it'll fix the problem, thanks for your help , should I mark the thread as solved?
