Legacy Intel lan driver

I have an older Gigabyte mobo Gigabyte G1.Assassin 2. The only lan driver I could find was "Bigfoot Killer Ethernet Controller" (Bigfoot Killer E2100 chip)
for Win XP 64 on Giga site: "mb_driver_lan_bigfoot.exe" 74.404 GB (2012). https://www.gigabyte.com/Motherboard/G1Assassin-2-rev-10/support#support-dl-driver-lan

The problem: when I do large file transfer from PC over lan (over 2 GB), network goes down and must reboot to recover the lan.
Can you direct me to an Intel Bigfoot legacy driver that would work with Windows 10?

I need a recommendation and url for an Intel legacy lan driver that would work with Windows 10 and with Bigfoot Killer E2100 chip.

Hi fortis,

 

Thank you for posting in Intel Ethernet Communities.

 

Regarding your inquiry, we recommend you to check the link below for list of Intel® Killer™ Windows 10 driver compatible model.

 

Intel® Killer™ Performance Suite

We also recommend you to contact and get a consult from OEM regarding suitable driver, which is Gigabyte itself. As your system manufacturer may have pre-installed the driver on your system to enable OEM-specific features. Which means their drivers may have been bit optimized or customized to be used with your system.

 

 

Best regards,
