    Default P35-S3L Series, Windows 7, and low Frame rates.

    Found and interesting problem today. You can see it here.

    network problem causing frame rate issues - Windows 7 Forums

    For those don't who want to click the link, three people (including myself) having Frame rate problems with the same games, using the same series of Motherboards. The weird part is, it's a simple fix where we have to disable and then re-enable our internet adapters, and that fixes the problem.

    I know it's a minor problem with an easy fix, but I just wanted others to be aware.

    Very odd to see. Glad you found a fix though and it is simple.

    Thanks for posting, maybe this can help someone later on who searches for help with this. If you dont mind please feel free to add some more info so others may find this later by looking for the name of the game, the issue itself, ect.

    Thanks

    Sure. First, my specs:

    Windows 7 64-bit
    C2Q Q6600 2.4 Ghz
    4GB RAM
    Nvidia 8800 GT 512MB
    GA-P35-S3L

    Basically, the issue seems to be with Windows 7 and the P35-D/S3L series of motherboards.

    In any game on the Source Engine (Left 4 Dead, Team Fortress 2, etc.) frame rates will drop to 15 FPS or lower.

    The fix is simple:

    1.) Go to your Network and Sharing Center on Windows 7.
    2.) Click on "Change adapter settings".
    3.) Right click and "Disable" on the internet adapter that's in use.
    4.) Right click again and "Enable" it back on.
    5.) Problem solved, you should have no frame rate issues.

    Also, this has to be done every time you reboot your PC, but it only takes a second, so it's no big deal.

    Thanks!

    Very odd to hear about this, have you forwarded the issue to Realtek and or Gigabyte?

    If not I would go ahead and do that as well in case there is something either can change in the BIOS or driver that will correct this. Since it sounds fully reproducible every time it is something they should be able to address and fix

    Forward to Gigabyte here
    GIGABYTE - Support&Download - Technical Service Zone

    RealTek here
    Realtek

    or
    Realtek

    Only effects games? Might be a network driver issue, do you have the latest from GB site?.

    Oh yeah, I was having troubles for weeks with this. It's super specific too. It was only games that run on the Source Engine. So, I was running a high-end game like Crysis better than I was running games on a 5 year old engine. I stumbled on the thread I posted above while doing a search for sound cards causing issues in Windows 7. I was so certain it was either my sound card or video card, I was almost ready to go out and buy new ones.

    But yeah, all my drivers are totally up to date. I also used those links to contact both Gigabyte and Realtek.

    The fix is so simple that it's not a big deal, but it would be nice to see it fixed in a future driver release if there ever is one.
