    Z490-E network drop outs

    I think this has been reported a few times but I am still getting this.

    Running a Asus Z490-E gaming with Intel I225-V drivers 1.0.2.6 .

    The network drops for 2-10 seconds. My devices connected to the wifi are unaffected so I strongly believe it's not the wifi.

    Is there a fix for this? It is extremely frustrating as I play some competitive fps games.

    Cheers!

    Welcome to the party, not a good party though!

    I have actually been battling this for a few months now, ended up buying a pcie ethernet adapter instead.

    I tried a few things:

    - I tried the solution suggested by intel, it worked for a day or so but then it failed again.
    - I also tried the intel solution with the latest driver on the Asus site, this strangely worked for a few days however it reverted again.

    - I updated my motherboard to the latest bios then I tried the intel solution. This was the most promising attempt as it worked for a week or so. You can skip this if you want and just continue with the solution on the intel site, https://www.intel.com/content/www/us...-products.html.

    I would firstly recommend attempting the Intel solution before anything else, which is on https://www.intel.com/content/www/us...-products.html. When doing so, use the drivers from the links on this post https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthrea...WiFi-Bluetooth instead of the Asus site.

    Who knows, you might get lucky and it works and doesn't drop again

    For me personally, it worked for a week or so then it just reverted itself to the same issue problem


    For now, I'm not doing anything and will be using my ethernet adapter for the forseeable future. I found this post on 03/12/2020 on the intel forums:


    Which is on this https://community.intel.com/t5/Ether...1189493/page/2

    So, best of luck if you are going to try the fixes. Message me if you need any assistance!

    Thank you for your response.

    I am devestated this is happening really, it's infuriating.

    I have just bought a new lan cable to try and if that doesn't fix it, I am between buying a network card or doing an RMA and rebuilding the pc.

    EDIT

    I flashed the drivers and had no issues for around 3 days, and then they re-introduced.

    Very annoying right? I used to game on laptops before and built PC's for others, none of them had a single issue.

    This is the first PC I build for myself and I get this bloody unfixable issue.

    I will keep using the pcie card for a bit and then possibly RMA the motherboard like you mentioned. The issue is, if I do RMA it and they send me a different board but same model, what stops it from having the same issue? This is really annoying!
