Hello, I have a foxconn a79s mobo with phenom
8450 triple core processor and 4870 x2 video card. I installed a new 550 wat power supplies to handle the video card...things worked great for a few days..then suddenly during load *star wars* the NIC decides to quit work...but will usually reset with a reboot or if i try to change to other nic *dual in a79* it will work for again 10-15 mins..then as well shut down...the internet at that point tells me NO ETHERNET cable is plugged in..there is NO IFS ANDS OR BUTS. however...after purchasing a dlink nic...It does the SAME thing..10-15 mins into a game..*under load* the nic stops work...EVEN if i HAVE all 3 plugged into the router...Even if i disable the internal and only use the pci card...I have tried reseating everything (ram, video, cpu, power supplies)

More about : nic shutting
