System: Windows 8, MSI Z77A-GD55 mobo, Intel 82579V Gigabit Network Connection, AVG Anti-Virus (FREE) 2013

Just recently build my own machine, running on university internet (have never had any issues in 4 years of using school internet), and now, my internet connection will just drop randomly and very briefly when playing games. As soon as I get a connection error message in-game, I alt-tab and see if the internet is working (and it is). It usually immediately lets me join another game, so it's only losing connection temporarily.

My version of AVG has no firewall enabled from what I can tell, and I've entirely disabled the Windows firewall. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling drivers for the Intel network connection, but the same thing happens. I have a wireless card installed for future use, but for right now, it's disabled (but still in my motherboard) because I have no router at school.

It seems to me like this is either something wrong with either the driver compatibility with Windows 8 or the physical port on the motherboard, though it seems like the internet never actually loses connection long enough for me to see it in my Network icon in Windows. When trying to install drivers for the ethernet connection off of the motherboard CD, it gave me a runtime error.

you may want to try using google open dns see if that helps
------------------------------------------------------------------------


Google public DNS

Google public DNS
http://code.google.com/speed/public-dns/

Theres also a link on how to setup those DNS IP address up on a PC
http://code.google.com/speed/public-dns/docs/using.html

How to set XP here
How to Use Google Public DNS on Windows 7 and Windows XP

Then once you have set up those DNS entries

Flush & register DNS

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box (A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):
In the command prompt window that opens, type the following commands:

Ipconfig/flushdns
ipconfig/registerdns


If you receive the message
The requested operation requires elevation.
Then please open the command prompt as administrator
Start> All Programs> Accessories and then right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

now type the command again

I'm now using Google DNS, but I don't think that solved the issue. I usually put my computer in sleep mode when I have to leave for a bit, and when I turned it back on just now, it didn't recognize my LAN connection. Upon opening Device Manager, I had an exclamation mark next to the Intel 82579V icon saying the device wasn't functioning properly. After shutting down and rebooting my machine, it recognized the connection again.

Is it an issue with my motherboard's LAN port, or something to do with driver compatibility in Windows 8? When I ran the Windows 8 Upgrade Assist tool, it told me that I needed to check my Network Controller but it didn't say that it was incompatible.

have you tried using the windows 8 LAN driver from the motherboard site here
MSI UK ? Mainboard - Z77A-GD55

also look at the device adapter properties and see if the power setting is enabled - that maybe the issue
