Wired Network Issue

Hi,

I've been searching around for a fix to my issues but I cant seem to find one so Ill try just taking a stab in the dark and seeing if anyone will reply.

Now..

I am using my on-board RTL8168C NIC to connect to a Netgear DG834Gv2 using a cat5 cable. My network connection state varies from full access to none at all. Sometimes I turn the computer on and it works fine, other times I have to disable then enable the NIC 5-10 times and eventually it works.....then doesn't work.

It also appears that when all the planets align,and for some reason or another I can actually get on the network...that the NIC gets "overloaded" with information then just disconnects me. Say for example, I can go around facebook and google, that sort of thing fine (when said connection is working) but say if I want to load up something like World of Warcraft it appears to break my connection.

I have tried using Gigabytes drivers on their webpage specific to my mobo, I have gone to Realteks website and used their latest drivers and I have also just used the bog standard windows 7 drivers, it appears when I do uninstall the device and then reinstall it with one of the drivers the device appears to work but then after 5-10 minutes maybe, the device fails me again.

I've been reading around and I have disabled the Bonjour service and set up the network as "Work" network.

This issue seems to come and go too. It appears to hang around from a day or 2, somehow repair itself and be fine for another 2-3 weeks and break again. Actually since Sunday I have been having this problem, Saturday I was pretty much downloading all day at my max 150kbps (Go go Australia's amazingly fast internet ) no problems at all.

We have 2 other computers on the network, 2 laptops, One using 7, the other using Vista, They do not have any issues at all.

Anyway, here are 2 IPConfig's One where my network connection is fine, The other where it is broken.

Your Netgear DG834Gv2 shows support for Windows 7. From what I see everything should be up and running. A cmos clear may fix the board if that is the problem. I would also try to reset the router and see if it helps.

Shows support for Windows 7 > Maybe a firmware update will help but it mentions nothing about Windows 7. http://kb.netgear.com/app/products/model/a_id/2327

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/com...4Gv2&os=64-bit

Gigabyte also shows support for Windows 7 and your board.
GA-EP43-DS3 (rev. 1.0) - GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Motherboard - Driver

I think that computersplus means this setting in power settings. Just go to the wireless adaptor setting and tell it not to sleep. I'm not sure if you are using wireless or not. Don't know if that will help or not but works sometimes.

Try going to the properties for the network adapter and turn off any power saving settings.

Looking at the screen shots the Tunnel Adapter is losing it's connection and it's IPV6 address. The IPV4 info is intact. It doesn't look like firewall or router but more of a NIC issue. Drivers or possibly failing on board NIC?

Sometimes uninstalling the adapter along with the driver and letting Windows redetect it can fix problems.

Hey,

thank-you very much for the replies.

I am just using the Windows Firewall and I have turned off all those power saving settings. I am not sure what it was, I think someone is watching me, but not 10 minutes after I posted this the issue fixed itself and then 5 minutes after that my new DG834Gv5 showed up, Coincidence? I am scared.

Now we will just have to wait and see if this happens again, because like I said in the OP this comes and goes for no apparent reason.
