My board is DB85FL. I am having problem with internet connection. It stops many times, apparently for no reason. When I notice it, I open the connection, just disconnect it and reconnect. It starts working instantly. As a matter of resolution, I started connecting it through wifi dongle,
Realtek RTL8188SU Wireless LAN 802.11n USB 2.0 Network Adapter
But the problem persists. Could it mean there is some problem with the board? Is there any resolution?
You are talking about the Ethernet connection, right? There is no wireless capability on this board.
Have you tried installing the brand new 25.1.1 package? If not, give it a try. You can download it here: https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/22283/Intel-Ethernet-Adapter-Complete-Driver-Pack?product=....
Thanks. Just now I downloaded and tried to execute. On clicking Autorun.Exe, nothing happens. I also tried right-clicking and running as administrator. Nothing happens. Then I shut down my system. Waited for 15 minutes. Then started the system and tried again. Nothing happens.
Thanks. With whatever setup I have, it has been working for years. What could have suddenly gone wrong? Do I need to give up on this issue now or is there any solution? I just thought that maybe I should reinstall from my old back. Will it be a wise thing?
IDSA is Intel Driver and Support Assistant. You can download it from the main Download Center page (here: https://downloadcenter.intel.com).
About the wireless capability, I have put a wifi dongle. It does connect with either ethernet cable or with wifi. The problem is, it stops working unpredictably. I learned a trick. Whenever this happens, I just disconnect it and connect it again. It works, maybe for a couple of seconds or maybe for the next hour or so. Does not matter if it is connected through a dongle or through ethernet.
