    Default Network Problems with ASRock 990FX Extreme3

    I recently acquired a ASRock 990FX Extreme3 along with an AMD FX-8350 processor. At the time I was running Windows 8.1 and having no problems with my network connectivity. After changing hardware I decided to re-install my OS and then install all the current drivers for my hardware. After doing all of this I started to have problems when playing games staying connected to the internet. After around 15-20 minutes playing anything online my connection to the internet drops and will not reconnect short of a system reboot. It still says that I'm connected to the LAN, however there is no internet connection. All the while I have another person on the same router, playing the same game, with a wired connection having no issues what so ever.

    In my attempts to figure out the issue I have tried plugging the Ethernet cord into a different port on the router, I've tried using a different cord, I've tried installing the latest Broadcom BCM57781 drivers, previous drivers, and I've even switched over to Windows 7 and restarted the whole process to no avail.

    I've not experienced this problem yet when not gaming. It seems like I can surf the web and even stream Netflix without any problems. As soon as I start playing something however, 10-15 minutes in I'm rebooting my pc to reconnect to the internet.

    If anyone has any experience with this I would greatly appreciate the help. If I can't figure this out I will either be buying a network card or possibly an entirely new motherboard.

    This happened to me using their Network Killer software.. Once I ran it my U-Verse went stupid.. It even killed incomming calls and Caller ID.. I had to uninstall the Killer network Software and reboot my u-verse. Internet was funky too, but worked, somewhat on LAN, and wireless was not affected at all.
