I have a Intel(R) I211 Gigabit Network onboard adapter on a windows 8.1 pro x64 system.
I'm connecting to internet with a PPPoE connection over this intel adapter.
I also use ICS to share internet to a hotspot wifi adapter (virtual hosted newtork).
Every time my wifi devices starts to download (even a speed test will do) my pppoe connection drops dead.
At first i thought that its some bug with windows 8.1 where ICS has problems with PPPoE, but yesterday i manage to get one tplink ethernet adapter (a cheap one) with 10/100/1000 and i have absolutely no problem with my PPPoE and ICS.
PPPoE with ICS drops only on intel adapter.
I have the latest drivers installed for intel adapter.
Is there anything that i can change in adapter's configuration?
I even have an argue with my internet provider due to this pppoe failing every time when android started to upgrade/download something.
i guess the culprit was the intel adapter.
Here are the rezults.
But to make it clear: I'm sharing the internet from PPPoE connection. not from network adapter. pppoe doesn't care which adapter has cable. it will connect regardless of the active network.
the problem is that when pppoe connects through intel adapter my PPPoE connection will drop when wifi devices (for example phone) starts to download data over the hotspot created with PPPoE and wifi dongle.
pppoe has no issue when cable is in tplink adapter and the hotspot is on.
the realtek is the tplink adapter mention in the opening. It probably has realtek chipset. so yes i did and i have no problem with this adapter. only I211 seems to have this issue
the only option i have for rss is "Maximum number of RSS queues" default value is 2 queues
Changing receive/transmit buffers and also rss queues from 2 to 1 i have the same drop of PPPoE connection.
