which driver is for Intel BlueTooth Device ID USB\VID_8087&PID_0AAA? I'm guessing it's "Drivers - 8xxx : 21.90.0.4 WHQL [02/04/2020]". If I'm correct ASUS support page for my Z390 Maximus XI Extreme, has Intel BlueTooth v21.90.2.1 [2020/06/09] which is more up to date. Can someone point me in the right direction, please.

EDIT:

I checked the inf files for the Intel BlueTooth drivers and this is what I found by Device ID of all 3 drivers:

USB\VID_8087&PID_0A2B&REV_0001 Drivers - 8xxx : 21.90.0.4 WHQL [02/04/2020]


USB\VID_8087&PID_0025&REV_0001 Drivers - 9xxx/AX2xx : 21.90.2.1 WHQL [22/04/2020]
USB\VID_8087&PID_0025&REV_0002 Drivers - 9xxx/AX2xx : 21.90.2.1 WHQL [22/04/2020]


USB\VID_8087&PID_0A2A Drivers - 3xxx/7xxx : 20.100.6.4 WHQL [03/10/2019]

So it appears that none of those BT drivers are for my Z390 Maximus XI Extreme Intel BT device.

Hi,

To find out which one is suitable for your motherboard, you need to look in your motherboard specifications (https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/ROG-MAXIMUS-VIII-HERO-ALPHA/specifications/) :


https://i.ibb.co/b24gYkP/2020-07-02-211427.png

You have a Intel I219-V (1.0GbE) Ethernet controller (you can also get this information from your Device Manager), so you need this one :

Hello there!

I have these drivers here installed and I don't know if it is related, but I am experiencing issues at boot up where I result not being correctly connected to my lan network. It often happens that at Windows boot that I result connect to an Unknown Network with no lan, and consequently, no internet access.

When it happens I have to disable/enable the network adapter from Windows settings a few times or unplug/plug in the lan cable a few times.

Checked my router and it seems to work good. Could it be a driver issue? Where can I find your last driver so to try that out and see if it indeed is related to this last version?

Thank you in advance.

Hi,

I use these same drivers (I21x-V (1.0GbE) : 12.18.9.23 WHQL [20/04/2020]) on several PCs and I have no issue, so if you have issue, the issue is on your side.

Anyway, try this :

- Download I21x-V (1.0GbE) : 12.18.9.23 WHQL [20/04/2020] drivers from the first page of the thread.
- If you use a Drivers & Sofware version (not Drivers Only) and therefore you see Intel Network software in your apps installed, uninstall it (Start > Settings > Apps) then restart your PC.
- Launch Driver Store Explorer (https://github.com/lostindark/DriverStoreExplorer/releases/latest) > Check the boxes of all versions of Intel drivers in Network adapters section.
- Check the box "Force Deletion" then click on the "Delete Package" button then restart your PC.
- Follow the Install Process of I21x-V (1.0GbE) from the first page of the thread.

Ok, It looks like that the easy (and I think only) way in fixing this is unplugging the lan cable from the motherboard and plug it back in a couple of times.
If I do so from the router side it does not work.
Disabling/enabling back the network adapter in Windows worked yesterday, but it took longer time as it get stuck with an Unknown Network for longer, while today with the unplug/plug thing motherboard side the Unknown Network was there a few secs.

Said so, I don't have any software installed. I remember that before finding your drivers I was using the default windows ones or use directly the Intel drivers from Intel's website.

I don't think is a cable issue as when I result in being correctly connected, I surf the web with no issues, can play online with decent ping and no lags, and SpeedTest.net results are in line with my type of contract that are as follows:

PING ms 11
DOWNLOAD Mbps 85.81
UPLOAD Mbps 14.05

What else can I do? What could it be?
I have tried to change ethernet port on my router but it happens the same thing at each Windows boot up.
Can you link me the old drivers just for a test? That I remember, I have never had an issue with them..

Thank you again.

- Install the Intel Ethernet drivers from your motherboard support page.

If the issue persists, it's not a driver issue.

Hey guys I am having a problem with latest firmware 1.45 and latest driver.
The connection disrupts for 5 or so seconds, the windows taskbar icon goes "no internet" then it reconnects.
Started to happen when I updated to latest driver.
Before with version 1.0.0.13 no issues. Any new drivers soon? Should I rollback?

Ive experienced strange throttling issues with the I225-V. Nothing seemed to fix it... I tried EVERYTHING. Including a brand new motherboard... While i didnt experience complete disconnects but Ive also seen reports of exactly what your saying... And yes your correct that rolling back to 1.0.0.13 will stop the drops. But you will see on this thread the NIC will then still suffer from horrible packet loss..... https://www.reddit.com/r/intel/comments/hqtu3h/psa_do_not_buy_any_z490_boards_with_the_intel/

I opened a ticket with intel regarding the poor behavior of the intel I-225V NIC. I submitted all my findings plus sent off the requested log reports generated by a tool they asked me to run... Will anything ever come of it? Who knows but i suggest anyone having issues with it to do the same and submit a ticket to intel. Intel is the only ones who MIGHT possibly be able to fix this.

Ok so I've read about it.
It might depend on which controller we got. V1 or updated V2? Someone on reddit told all new boards have this bug fixed and updated with the new version of I225V..
I've just rolled back to 1.0.0.13 and set manually to 1.0 gbits full duplex. Ran a few test for packet loss- 0% so far.
Will do further testing and post if any issues.....But we need this fix from intel ASAP. It is sad that it appears to be a Hardwire problem with controller. How could they not have tested this?


Thank you for answers. guys.

Thank you for answers. guys.

You can check what controller you got by looking at the HW ids.... At the end will have a V2 if you got a V2.. BUT.......

While your initial issue with complete disconnects has disappeared by rolling back driver. I still really believe the NIC isnt acting as good as it should... Myself and a few others that ive found on various forums have experienced throttling on high speed internet and the intel I225-V. I spend a few weeks trying to figure it out, including a completely new motherboard... With that being said ive also seen some people say its working fine for them. So I dunno.... I dunno but but i feel something isnt right.....

Also I hate to be the bearer of bad news but who ever on reddit is saying the V2 is fully bug fixed is wrong... People have found the V2 still suffers from issues......... Issues that according to some are still on a hardware level. :( But that it just MIGHT be possible Intel can try to mitigate the issue in the future with new firmware releases. The problem has to do with compatibility with certain switches from what I understand........

There is already a V3 expected later this year.... LOL... Its kinda bad.... https://wccftech.com/intel-foxville-i225-v-2-5gbe-networking-issues-persist-z490-motherboards-affected/

Im not that impressed to be honest with you.... Im lucky enough that my Z490 board also has a Aquantia 10gb lan aswell. So Ive been just using that... This intel one is buggy.......

I've tried in the beginning going through the ridiculous steps :
Intel(R) Gigabit Ethernet Driver V1.0.1.4 for Windows 10 64-bit.
Before installing Intel I225-V driver v.1.0.1.4, please ensure that Intel I225-V firmware should be updated to v.1.45 via firmware update tool. After finishing necessary firmware update, please shut down and unplug the power cord then reboot the system normally. For more information, please refer to the firmware update guide.

This did not work at all, I was going through some BS with this board until it came to me this Mobo has (Wi-Fi) and that did help me get all the Windows 10 updates and I was able to install the (Armoury Crate) - I'm now running on v.1.0.0.13 and so far so good. I'm afraid trying to go and run the latest (v.10.1.4)

What exactly doesn't work? The Intel lan is borked and right now, it's largely believed to be a hardware issue. Intel is sending out newer boards with a revised NIC but for those of us with earlier boards, we're stuck.

Use Wi-Fi or the Marvel 10G NIC.

I have an Asus Maximus XII Extreme w/ an Intel I225-V REV 2 and wanted to share an observation that might help people experiencing link issues or packet loss.

After I updated the the firmware to V1.45, I updated to the 1.0.1.4 driver and I wasn't having any issues.

Recently, I noticed the 1.0.1.8 driver was released so I updated my driver and started seeing around 5% packet loss.

The difference between 1.0.1.4 and 1.0.1.8 is the older driver did not auto-negotiate EEE (Energy Efficient Ethernet) and was disabled, whereas 1.0.1.8 did auto-negotiate EEE and was enabled. When I disabled EEE with the 1.0.1.8 driver, my packet loss disappeared.

TL; DR - If you're having connectivity issues with the I225-V, it may be worth trying to disable Energy Efficient Ethernet.

Hi,

Yes of course, you need :

Thank you, but my Wi-Fi speed is still slow along with the missing 1 signal Wi-Fi bar, and I've both installed the WLAN & BT drivers too, I wonder why.

Hi,

Because it is probably not a drivers issue. Try by updating your BIOS to the latest for your notebook : https://dlcdnets.asus.com/pub/ASUS/GamingNB/GL503GE/ASUS_GL503GE_318_Installer.zip

If your issue persists, contact your ASUS Support.

I tried it during day vs night, and the internet speed is normal at night (around 12 AM - 3 PM), and during the day, it got throttled. My PC don't have this problem though. And yes, I've tried it with the latest BIOS and the problem still persists. The reason why I prefer to use this BIOS version is for the undervolt compatibility. I guess there is something with the Wi-Fi signal?

Edit:
After I turned on my laptop, my Wi-Fi speed is slow, but then after I put it very close to the router, its speed become normal and fast (as it should be) and when I'm back to my regular spot which is not close the router, the internet speed remains the same (fast).

In the latest I225-V drivers (1.0.2.6) available in Windows Update, EEE now defaults to OFF.

ASUS B550-E with I225-V (2) here: driver v1.0.1.4 worked for me but now windows 10 update is forcing a v1.0.2.6. installation which is causing a lot of packet loss (unplayable during gaming). After disabling EEE (default was "enabled" for me) packet loss has become less but its still there (1-5%). I have two systems/b550-e boards, both of them have the same issue. Any ideas?

Just FYI,

Asus ROG STRIX z490 G gaming. New 1.0.2.6 Intel driver gives me no issues.
No disconnecting on reboot, no packet loss, no connection drops/reconnections
Was using before 1.0.0.13- that was super stable.

I switched to 1.0 Gbps in driver settings tho. I do not need 2.5GBe. EEE is off, tried ON - didnt see any difference to be honest.-

I've got the newest firmware.

I do not like how the adapter behaves on 2.5GB ...It doesnt disconnect but looks like i am having packet loss.
Does anyone know how to look which revision I got on my motherboard? Where to look exactly?

Hello there!

I have these drivers here installed and I don't know if it is related, but I am experiencing issues at boot up where I result not being correctly connected to my lan network. It often happens that at Windows boot that I result connect to an Unknown Network with no lan, and consequently, no internet access.

When it happens I have to disable/enable the network adapter from Windows settings a few times or unplug/plug in the lan cable a few times.

Checked my router and it seems to work good. Could it be a driver issue? Where can I find your last driver so to try that out and see if it indeed is related to this last version?

Thank you in advance.

That could be from applying some tweaks on your Windows. Wait 30-60seconds. it will get connected, just wont be right away. If thats your case...

Yes, many people have that problem, internet connection drops & have packet loss and slow Up/Download speeds. Its the silicon and Intel cant do much about it. They say the fix works 100% & its fixed in the next revisions of the silicon but there are people with them that still have the same problems. Only thing that works but its not 100% fix is to flash NVM to 1.45 (even if you already did it). Im posting the fix and the thread on Intel Forum. I will make a separate post because this is important.

Interesting, and thanks for sharing.

Does anybody know if these issues might happen with I21x-V (1.0GbE) Intel ethernet adapters as well? I have a Ethernet Intel® I219-V 1.0Gbit Lan adapter, and some times I encounter internet connection drops & have packet loss and slow Up/Download speeds.
I have recently passed to fiber cable (have changed home internet connection, but provider is the same), and as far that I have learn only my pc is affected. Nwither my 2 other laptops I have in the house and my smartphones have any of that.

Thanks for the help.

Hi MoKiChU,

Here I am again with a request about I225 chip.

As you know the INF file created a reoccurring event 27 issues and updates were eventually out creating a fix.

Unfortunately, this issue is happening with the new I225 chip. I get Event 27
The description for Event ID 27 from source e2fexpress cannot be found.
Either the component that raises this event is not installed on your local computer or the installation is corrupted.
The only issue is that the message now is e2dexpress

Here is the ID of the Chip

Isa there a fix for .INF to stop errors?

Hi,

- If you have Intel Network Connections in your programs, uninstall it and restart your PC.
- Launch Driver Store Explorer (https://github.com/lostindark/DriverStoreExplorer/releases/latest) > Check the boxes of all versions of this driver .inf (if you find them) : e2f68.inf > Check the box "Force Deletion" then click on the "Delete Driver" button then restart your PC.

Maybe MoKiChU could help here.

I also have have the Intel I219-V and sometimes experience connection loss while high bandwidth usage, and would like to know what the latest Firmware for that controller is, and if MoKiChU could provide that.

I also found there is a new Firmware (Intel I21x Lan controller Firmware Version 3.30, posted 05 Feb 2021) on station-driv..., but i am not sure if this is actually applicable here.

Regards

But is that a firmware or a driver? Because if it's a firmware is it maybe something that is intended to be flashed on the Ethernet chip or something...(?)

Where do we find the firmware updates for Intel Lan? I mean the Asus support page for XII Formula clearly says:

"Intel(R) Gigabit Ethernet Driver V1.0.1.4 for Windows 10 64-bit.
Before installing Intel I225-V driver v.1.0.1.4, please ensure that Intel I225-V firmware should be updated to v.1.45 via firmware update tool. After finishing necessary firmware update, please shut down and unplug the power cord then reboot the system normally. For more information, please refer to the firmware update guide."

Yet no where in the downloads and the bios/FW tab does it say anything about lan fw. I ran intel's driver and support assistant but it says everything is up to date.

I also for the life of me can't seem to find where it states what FW my Intel Lan has currently. With all the talk of the i225 causing so many issues I'm currently using the Marvel Lan after swapping from XI Formula/9900K to XII Formula/10900K so it's a fresh upgrade.

scgt1
02-28-2021, 05:46 AM
So I guess the FW update was with the download for 1.0.1.4. I ran it shut down killed the psu power waited and then installed the FW. I have a 200meg connection that generally I get 220-230 out of. Well less then 3meg is what I'm getting using speed test and a 30ping when normal is low teens. Rebooted and retested 13 ping and 30meg down. So rolled back to what windows installed which is 1.0.2.6 instead of the 1.0.2.8 on the first post and going to give it a whirl.

That looks like the trick. My XII Formula doesn't like the 1.0.2.8 i225 drivers on the first post but likes 1.0.2.6 that windows slaps in. Go figure.

Nope that didn't do the trick. Just ran it again 29 ping 2.23 down. WTF. I'm about to pull the plug on the Intel nic and go with the Marvel. This is a joke not to mention a PITA!

Well what a crap shoot this has been have random 5% packet loss and inconsistent speedtest runs on Intel. Switch to Marvel and lord 30-35% packet loss. Don't really want to use wifi considering this is my game rig and the router is in the same room so would much rather be hard wired but this is pathetic.

scgt1
02-28-2021, 02:03 PM
Well got it all sorted I think finally. Was getting about 5% random packet loss with Intel and 30-35% with Marvel. Got the newest drivers installed for both finally and no packet loss although Marvel is kinda all over the place with 100 as the test.
