ethernet controller causing latency problems, mp3 stuttering

I have had a problem with my 6 month old Win 7 64bit computer
I have been getting stuttering, delay when playing back MP3's
I have tried different players, drivers etc.
With the help of a latency checker I tracked it down to my
ethernet controler (not the wireless control)
when I disable the controller the music plays perfectly
and the latency goes away, when it is enabled terrible..
I of course need the controller or I cant get on the internet..
Any ideas on how to resolve??

  1. Sounds like a bug in the device driver for the ethernet. Be sure you are running the ones you download from the manufactures website. Many times the ones that microsoft loads are generic and only "mostly" work. I do know there is a common bug called TCP offload that messes up a lot of things. You could try to turn that off..it is buried deep in the configuration menus for the ethernet controller if its there at all.

    Would just installing a new ethernet card fix this since the controller is integrated into the mother board??
  3. I guess if want to do it that way it will work. I would still try to see if the motherboard manufacture has a fix for you.
