The driver utility said i need this but didnt list it. Where is it? I get an error about once a day or every two days, lose connection and it says intel r 82578dc gigabit network connection disabled. Keeps happening during gaming.
The latest available Intel Gigabit LAN drivers for Windows 10 are supposedly available via Windows Update. Have you checked to see whether this shows up in the list of optional downloads on Windows Update?
