    Marvell Yukon Gigabit Ethernet freezeing every 15 mins


    Earlier many reported this problem with win 7 x64 build 7100, now I did a clean install of build 7600 x64 & the problem is now more frequently happening every 15 mins it freezes the comp.

    Uploading stops
    downloading sometime stops
    sound/video freezes
    applications stop responding
    nothing can be done to the system at that time.

    I am using asus P5B dlx wifi mobo with Marvell Yukon Gigabit Ethernet lan drivers latest v 11.10.6.3 dated 6/15/09.
    Is there any solution to this I am pulling my hair due to this issue & cant use the comp.

    I just realized that I was using the old driver the new driver is out v11.10.7.3 dated 7/20/2009.

    Lets see if this solves the problem or not.

    20 hrs running with the updated driver, not a single hangup so I conclude that the build 7600 with new driver has solved this bug.

    I'm running a clean install of Windows 7 Home Premium. All I've installed is firefox and imgburn, I've installed the latest Marvel Yukon drivers for my nic and I'm still getting it randomly stopping dead. Troubleshooting / disabling and reenabling the card aren't working. I have to do a full reboot .

    the same


    i have the same problem and the newest driver didn't solve it. My internet connection freezes, ffox opens google in 3 minutes when marvell ethernet freezes..

    any suggestion?

    -----------------------------------------------
    edit:
    i found something on google :

    "\bring it up in the device manager. Go to the tab that says "allow this device to be turned off to conserve power" uncheck that.

    I have found that that can be an issue at times./"

    i guess this may be a solution but i am still waiting for your suggestions...

    -----------------------------
    edit again:

    my above suggestion didn't solve the problem.
    the only way that i can bring up my ethernet card from freezing is waiting or changing its mac addresss.

    ANY SUGGESTIONS?

    I don't remember what I all tried to get a fix for this. Mainly:
    - different drivers including one from Windows XP and Vista
    - different NICs (even one from 1999 with an old DEC chip)
    - completely disable IPV6 (remove the complete TCP IP stack)
    - change the tons of tcpip parameters in the registry
    - disable the win firewall
    - disab all unnecessary services.msc (barebone Black Viper's Web Site)

    Nothing of this worked. All TCP packets going out through the default route (gateway) do not get a SYN ACK back (checked with Wireshark). Funny: UDP traffic is not affected at all and ongoing connections (like downloads in progress) are not halted. It must be something very wrong in the TCPIP stack itself. I think it's not driver releated at all. May be your best bet is change the Switch/Router environment. The problem is known since the win7betas and did not get fixed in the RTM. My hope is not very high to get a fix from M$ before SP1.
