    Z490 Intel I225-V driver bug (no connectivity on reboot)

    It's a well-known issue which appears to affect all Z490 chipets with the Intel I225-V 2.5Gbe NIC, not just Asus



    Basically the latest driver from Intel, and which is available from most of the motherboard manufacturer sites, has a bug whereby the NIC dies on a system reboot.

    The status will show cable/media disconnected and there'll be no link or activity lights on the socket.

    This only happens after a soft reboot, powering off and on again will not show the problem.

    You can fix it by disabling and re-enabling the interface.



    The solution is to roll back the driver to an earlier version. At present the one on Windows Update (1.0.0.13) is fine.

    Uninstall the NIC from device manager and opt to remove the driver too.

    Reboot and allow Windows Update to locate the driver (using Wifi or an alternate NIC for connectivity).



    This is being discussed in various forums but could really do with being highlighted by a more prominent site/channel like this one to give Intel a kick up the backside to get it sorted.

    I haven't seen this problem and I'm on 1.0.0.14. Did you update the firmware to the newest one, packaged with the driver on the Asus driver support page?

    Run install.bat as administrator please.
    Also install.bat should be by itself with everything else in its own folder.

    You might have to install the older driver version 1.0.1.3 I think to get the firmware update to work (at least I did for my wife's Z490-E).

    I managed to update the firmware wiht the run intall.bat as admin on my z490-g, but for me to 1.0.0.13 is the only stable NIC driver for now.

    Should be fine with 1.0.1.4 after the firmware update.
