Windows Update causing issues with Broadcom NIC?

By asalive ·
A question for the group here. I have a number of machines around the office of various makes and builds. After the last round of windows updates i started to notice some issues with the NIC drivers for the onboard Broadcom NIC. My system logs on the machies are showing DCOM errors, random, or looped reboots, and a number of entries about the NIC starting and stopping. Most common event ID's are: 10009, 1003, and 7023. From my research on the 1003 error, Microsoft indicates a virus, however my search of what they wanted me to look for has not turned up anything, neither has various scans with different scanners. If it were only on one machine i would chalk it up to a bad card, i now have three machines that have all experienced similar issues after the last round of updates. I am wondering if anyone else has seen this issue, what actions may have been taken as a work around. thus far i have had little luck. Any insight will be very much appreciated.

Check for updated drivers from mfgr

It might be worth seeing if there is a driver update available directly from Broadcom or from the motherboard manufacturer.

Many times, both a patch and a driver update come out, but it often takes a while for the driver to make it to windowsupdate.

Also look for driver updates for the mb chipsets, from Intel or Via or whatever.

I have a similar Broadcom NIC problem that has been reported this morning after the update, and am just starting now to try to diagnose it. Any help would be appreciated!
