Well for around a month or so i'd be tryin to do some uploading & my connection would keep dropping & more so like yesterday it crapped out 5-6 times, partialy sites where goin thru ... So today earlier in the day I decided to throw my old D-link pci nic in & not had any issue's with it since. The boards I think almost 2 yrs old i think? ... I also remember there being issue's with the realtek lan drivers as well .. which I cant fully conclude/confirm is the issue or not.
