Windows 7 NIC Intermittent Connectivity

By stevemanccx ·
Last month I installed Windows 7 x64 official release and since have been experiencing network outages. The problem is similar to no cable connected, network manager states media disconnected and link lights are NOT lit. The problem comes and goes at random, and seems to be triggered by regular to heavy traffic (remote sessions). The problem exists with both new or old EVGA and Microsoft sourced drivers. The NIC performed optimally and with no interruption with Windows 7 x64 RC and there has been no hardware changes. The cables and switches have been tested working through use of a different computer on the same line, therefore it must be the onboard/NIC or drivers. The system also does not provide any information or system event logs to assist with troubleshooting.

MB: EVGA x58
OS: Windows 7 x64 Official
