    Intel 82579V WIn10 onboard LAN doesn't automatically load drivers


    Hi, I had the exact same computer setup on WIndows 7 and the system worked flawless, after upgrading to Windows 10 there seems to have been a problem with the driver for this.

    The driver does not load correctly and I have to load up device manager, and then network adapters > Intel(R) 82579V and right click it and click scan for hardware changes and it will load the correct driver.

    Before I learnt to right click it and scan hardware changes. I would just restart the machine and on restart it will load the driver fine. It used to be annoying before, now less so. It behaves like an old classic car, it doesn't like a "cold start" and I have to manually get it to re-check for drivers.

    Any ideas to fix this? this is a desktop computer and I thought about just installing a new gigabit Lan card, and hoping it would just fix it, but it's a waste of money and expansion slot just, so I am looking for a windows solution.

    I have tried uninstalling the driver and let windows manage the driver. I can see on the intel website that it does not make a specific w10 driver for it, could that be the issue?

    Are you stating that every time you boot the computer and log in, you have to reinstall drivers for a device? You may be best to do a Repair or clean install. It is a known issue with that chipset that it gets reported by Windows as an incorrect chipset and errors. After today (September 6, 2019), Intel will no longer support this tool. It has been known for a ling time that MS has had issues with not properly coding certain Intel and NVIDIA devices that they consider obsolete.

    Sigh. I might as well just buy a gigabit lan card with a different chipset that Windows is happy with.

    there's a 25% chance that the drivers load up fine on bootup. I don't reinstall the driver each time, i just right click and press "check for hardware changes" and within a millisecond it just fixes the connection and the red cross is removed from the hardware entry.

    A hack-ey way to get around this would be to create some sort of script that checks for hardware changes and make it launch at startup. Or maybe even a button that's fixed to the desktop that does it on command.

    You have not completed your system specs so I don't know what motherboard or computer you have but I'm using a
    Gigabyte X79 UD5 that has the Intel 82579V NIC and I have had no issues with startup with Windows 10 x64, all versions to date.
    The driver I am using is version 12.17.10.8.

    Where did you get the driver you are using.

    Hey pbcopter

    Mine is a asus p8z68-v pro/gen3 it has the latest firmware installed.

    The driver was originally installed by Windows. It worked fine in windows 7, I noticed it playing up since installing windows 10.

    Driver version is 12.15.31.4

    - - - Updated - - -

    I realise my driver is older than yours, i tried to update. It wont let me and suggests I update windows first. Was trying to do that but I have an old version of vmware and that needs updating before windows will do anything saying that VMware version I have isn't compatible with my installation of windows.

    Perhaps that is the culprint, VMware installs a few phantom NIC devices on the computer, perhaps they're conflicting with the actual NIC.
