Intel 82579V ethernet still loses connection after sleep - with latest driver 23.2

Jump to solution

Hi, can anyone please advise if there is anything more I can do to fix lost ethernet after sleep mode? I have updated the ethernet NIC driver to the latest 23.2 but the problem is still happening. However I am not sure it has installed correctly as the driver properties show 12.15.31.4 (dated 25/07/2016) ?? Surely the driver should say 23.2? The file PROWinx64.exe seems to have executed correctly without problems. This problem started after the latest Windows update (April 2018).

When I come out of sleep, the adapter shows as Intel 82579LM, until I scan for hardware changes and it recognises it as 82579V. This was the same problem as with the old driver, so the PROWin file hasn't changed anything. Can someone please advise if the driver should say 23.2 in the network card properties? Many thanks.

Hi Frodofreeman,

 

 

Thank you for posting in Wired Ethernet Communities. Version 23.2 refers to the PROSet software version, the actual driver version is the one in the property of the NIC, which in your case is 12.15.31.4 (dated 25/07/2016) for 82579V Ethernet controller.

 

 

With regard to the problem the adapter shows as 82579LM, you may try to use the NVMupdate utility at https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/22026/NVM-Update-Utility-for-Intel-82579V-Gigabit-Ethernet...

 

 

As this is an onboard NIC on Asus* board and with new Windows 10 RS4, I would recommend you to contact Asus* for customized driver, it is more suitable to use customized driver from the board vendor as they might make changes on the NIC to adapt to the board design. You may also check if they have the NVMupdate utility to fix the issue.

 

 

Please refer to this link about support for 82579V https://www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/support/articles/000005658/network-and-i-o/ethernet-products...

 

 

Hope the above information help.

Wow, thank you Sharon, I just need to pick myself up off the floor, as your reply solved the problem! The NVM update utility worked like a charm! (I didn't need to contact Asus luckily).

I have had no end of hassle recently with various things and this problem was the latest irritation to annoy me! But your response was fast, relevant, helpful, specific and with common sense language. Can MIcrosoft please take note, we DON'T want canned responses and waffle, just an appropriate answer that explains the problem and hopefully provides a solution! Have a wonderful day!
