Windows 7: Marvell Yukon Gigabit Ethernet freezeing every 15 mins

13 Nov 2009   #11

7600.20510 x86

If the latest driver didn't solve it, I'd start looking elsewhere at what the problem could be.

It could be some program you have to start with Windows, possibly from the motherboard manufacturer. It could be other software making internet connections that is running and not working so well.

Check the event logs for anything suspicious or related. Alleviate those problems and this might go away with them.

Ups. I forgot to mention. This happens without any third party involved. No other SW was installed beside Win7 and of course Wireshark to do some packet traces. BTW: based on this and other quirks our company shelved Win7 (as they did with Vista before). Even no testing are ongoing in the labs anymore. Oh well may be SP1 will be reconsidered. If not - may be Win8 or 9 or... (hope M$ is still around then).

That's unfortunate because Win 7 offers much more performance, quality and reliability right now (and even when beta!) than XP does with SP3.

Windows 7 - 64

I had the same problem. The solution that appears to work:

Under "Device Manager / Network adapters / Marvell . . . / Advanced" tab:
Energy Star: Disabled
Wake From Shutdown: Off
Wake-Up Capabilities: None

Any combination of the three might be the culprit. The leading culprit would be Energy Star. I can see where the OS would turn off the port after inactivity but fail to turn it on when activity resumes. Either Microsoft or Marvell didn't implement the feature correctly.
