I have a weird Windows 7 issue.

When I do soft boot (via Restart) my GD70 built-in network adapter boots disabled with "network cable unplugged" error.

Unplugging the cable and plugging it manually (while Windows is running) enables the port and I get the green led light and network adapter is functional.  Also, changing any properties/configure/advanced causes the adapter to be re-activated by software only.

But when I boot Windows, the adapter does not come up.

so far I have tried:
- updated GD70 BIOS to the latest
- updated Realtek drivers to the latest
- reset CMOS via jumper
- changed speed to 100Mb/s from "auto sensing"
- disabled "Green" (pucking) power management
- disabled "power off" by OS (under properties/configure/power management)
- booted with LAN disabled in the BIOS, followed by boot with LAN enabled

I'm running out of ideas.  My thinking is it is related to power management or hardware itself to put this port into this "deep sleep".

Any ideas, similar experiences?

I've had issues like this before...

Seems to be a Realtek (for me atleast) issue.  Sometimes the Realtek NIC's will crash under heavy load (lots of threads open, server stuff) and require a reboot to work again.  Intel and Atheros chipsets seem to be immune but whatever.

Anyway try those, see if they work for you.

Thanks.  Yes, for me, it was the MSI supplied driver.  Latest greatest from the msi website.

After I uninstalled MSI Realtek driver and cold booted the machine, Windows detected the Ethernet
hardware and installed their own driver for it.

Microsoft driver does not have this issue.
