Z77 Pro4 Onboard Realtek LAN Intermittently Disconnects
Hi guys, I just put together a build with the Z77 Pro4 and I'm having a lot of connection issues with the onboard Realtek Gigabit Ethernet controller. At random times, I would temporarily lose connection to my network for 10 - 20 seconds, then be reconnected. In the Network Connections panel, I see that the adapter would become "Disabled", then become re-enabled.
I can confirm that this is not an issue with my router, as I have bypassed the router to the same effect. The adapter also shouldn't become Disabled if it were a router side issue.
I'm currently using the latest Realtek 7058_05212012 driver package for Windows 7 64-bit. Does anyone have any ideas on a fix? Is this an issue that's been addressed in a firmware update?
