I have an issue with my onboard network card on an ASUS Z170 Pro Gaming mainboard. I get disconnects all the time and i had no problem at all before i got the mainboard with the Intel NIC. The error id "e1cexpress eventID: 27" is occuring in the Windows event log. It is 100% not a router or internet provider problem as everything works fine with other devices connected to the same network.
I tried many things posted in other threads here that looked like similar issues but the problem still exists.
The Intel i219-V is not even listed in the intel download center, so i only found up to date drivers on other computer manufacturer websites. I also tried to set the ethernet energy feature off, but it does not help. Maybe it delays the problem a little bit as it only occurs every 3 or 4 hours now.
But as i am also playing online-games, this is an absolutely no-go as it kicked me out of some games a few times already while i was playing.
I am using Windows 10 Pro. Currently i have installed the drivers that came with the mainboard (from the driver CD).
Maybe some other people with this mainboard also have this issue and found a solution. Please help.
Thank you for contacting Intel.
For onboard network cards, we recommend using the driver provided by motherboard manufacturer. Please contact Asus* support so they further check the different components of the board.
As i said, i have those drivers installed and i also tried other drivers and always completely deinstalled the old ones before. But i read in other threads that there are similar issues regarding intel NICs and i think they are driver independent. Please help.
