    Windows 8.1 Ethernet problem


    Dear All

    Since a couple of days (started on 14/7/2014) i'm having trouble with my ethernet connectivity, I do not seem to get internet access.

    This is what I've tested

    pc1 : problem pc
    - Desktop (no wireless)
    - Windows 8.1 recent updates
    - Realtek PCIe GBE family controller
    - Driver : 8.32.508.2014 (8/5/2014 Realtek)
    - Green en jellow light are flashing

    pc2 : tested cable and internet
    - Laptop
    - Windows 7 no updates
    - Broadcom Netlink
    - Everything is working fine here, with same cable and internet

    pc3 : tested cable and internet
    - Laptop
    - Windows 7 recent updates
    - Realtek PCIe GBE family controller
    - Driver : 7.41.216.2011 (16/2/2011 Realtek)
    - Everything is working fine here, with same cable and internet

    So what did I conclude :
    it has nothing to do with the cable
    it has nothing to do with the internet
    it has nothing to do with the Realtek adapter
    it's a new pc (pc1) I put togheter some months ago, worked fine up til now
    I can see my network adapter in divice management so it's plugged in correctly

    I think it might have to do somthing with Windows 8.1 or windows updates
    Any sugestions ? Much appreciated

    What router are you using, along with who is your provider (ISP)?

    I'm using a modem from my provider Telenet; without any switches or routers in between
    model : CBN SVG6540E

    Weir thing is that if I check activity of my ethernet adaptor i do send and receive packages (bytes)

    From the looks of it. A lot of people have been having issues with that Gateway.
