Ive acquired a NUC8i7HVK a week ago and overall it works great, except for the ethernet adapters. I installed windows 10 pro on it.
The primary ethernet adapter (the one close to USB ports) works, but it will sometimes randomly disconnect for a few seconds. I first thought that it was under load, but it also happens during RDP session.
The secondary ethernet adapter is detected, but no matter what it will not detect the cable. I know the cable works as I was using it with my previous computer, and it connects the primary adapter.
I also have a eGPU with a ethernet port on it, and this one works, and will not drop connection. But the point of a eGPU is to only use it when needed, so I need a working, reliable solution for the NUC.
I've installed the recommended driver https://downloadcenter.intel.com/download/28975/Intel-HD-Graphics-Driver-for-Windows-10-64-bit-for-N... but it's not doing anything. I ran a hardware test and all is good.
I'm not sure what could be the cause is. The NUC not drawing enough power ? Hardware defect?
