    Well..it's not a NIC per say, but still...

    Pretty much what the title says. I install Gigabyte's windows 7 drivers for my Ethernet and it totally disables the connection. I uninstall the driver and reboot, biggity bam, magically works.

    I've emailed gigabyte but they said they've never heard of this type of problem. They've also suggested I download and upgrade to the latest drivers...which is what I've been doing...

    Not really a problem because the "generic" driver works, it's just a curiosity and I was wondering if anyone else has come across anything similar...
