i219-V no browsing during download problem

Hello,

I had a mainboard with i218-V and I was extremely happy with it. Now as I upgraded to Skylake, I have an i219-V with new mainboard (MSI C236A). I first tried with Windows 10 and now downgraded to Win 8.1 but problem persists on both platforms.

My problem is (as subject partly indicates) when I am having any file to download, I can't even browse Internet before download is over. So in that sense, there is no QoS at all. I checked Network details and NIC options but no success, I never had such issue before.

Thanks in advance for help.

HI DarkWingDuck,

As this is an onboard NIC on MSI, it is recommended to check with board vendor as they might have customized the NIC on integration of their system. You can try installing our driver from Intel website

However, we cannot guarantee 100% compatibility. A customized driver from the board vendor for your onboard NIC is recommended.

Hope this could be of help.

rgds,
