nforce LAN and Windows 7 x64 final - only 100MBit?
  1 / 3    
Hello!

I'm trying now for a few days windows 7 x64.

I've git a nforce 780a chipset mainbaord with integrated 1000MBits NIC controller. Also my hardware (cable, switch) allows 1000Mbit, with Windows XP this speed was also possible bitout problems with auto-negotiation.

but with windows 7 x64 it is not possible to get 1000MBits, only 100MBits are possible.

Here's a Screenshot from the driver properties - this driver came with windows 7 already:

As you can see I can only select between 10MBit HD to 100MBit FD ...

after installing the 15.37 nforce driver from nvidia, the "Advanced"-Tab is not visible any more:

I tried here with different registry settings to force 1000MBit, but this also did not work.

what can I do?

Thanks in advance!

Speculation on my part......

If a driver change Loses something, then it was not a good change. Try using the Vista 64 drivers, but go older.

They may have moved the Advanced items to the nVidia Control Panel, so check there also.

My Opinion is no more important or right than yours. But if your using the LATEST drivers, go back to the prior set.

Piss Poor tech support blame all issues on drivers and assumes that your an idiot. Find a set that you know worked and see if the problem exists still.

""Don't f with it if it ain't broken!""

Constantly updating drivers is a good way to F'up the whole system.

complain with nvidia and your MB supplier. I did. It is at 2nd level support. hopefully they will come up with gigabit support in the new drivers.

lamers!

I got the Asus P5N7A-VM motherboard.

there is no option to choose forcing 1gbit, use auto negotiation
also dont use nforce driver packages from your mobo manuf, use the ones from nvidia.com for your chipset

does 1GBit work with the last x64 nvidia driver? I can try this at home ... ;)

im on windows 7 rtm x64 and the driver nvidia.com gives me for my mobo (650i), works in gigabit just fine with no settings changed (Forceware network access manager NOT installed)

can you show me a screendump where it shows that you are actually connected through gigabit? because the driver does just not offer gigabit. 2nd level support has confirmed this with me.

what motherboard are you running? I can only find gigabit support for 630i chipset.

this is the speedselection option from you motherboard driver from nvidia. Offering NO gigabit support:
[code]; Speed Duplex Setting
[SpeedDuplexUpto1000.reg]
HKR, Ndi\params\*SpeedDuplex, ParamDesc, 0, "%SpeedDuplex%"
HKR, Ndi\params\*SpeedDuplex, default, 0, "0"
HKR, Ndi\params\*SpeedDuplex, type, 0, "enum"
HKR, Ndi\params\*SpeedDuplex\enum, "0", 0, "%AutoNegotiation%"
HKR, Ndi\params\*SpeedDuplex\enum, "1", 0, "%HD10MB%"
HKR, Ndi\params\*SpeedDuplex\enum, "2", 0, "%FD10MB%"
HKR, Ndi\params\*SpeedDuplex\enum, "3", 0, "%HD100MB%"
HKR, Ndi\params\*SpeedDuplex\enum, "4", 0, "%FD100MB%"

HKR, Ndi\params\*SpeedDuplex\enum, "7", 0, "%HD100MBA%"
HKR, Ndi\params\*SpeedDuplex\enum, "8", 0, "%FD100MBA%"[/code]

can you make a screendump showing you are connected at 1GB?

yes, you cant FORCE gigabit, but autonegotiaion will use GIGABIT if its ok with your router/switch/whatever
[url="http://i28.tinypic.com/2z8qj2t.png"]http://i28.tinypic.com/2z8qj2t.png[/url]
i can transfer files to other computers at like 80MB/s
it works irregardless if i install the nforce chipset drivers or not (ie the driver that comes with windows 7 works with gigabit as well).
this is connected to a WRT350N gigabit router running OpenWrt firmware (the light on the router is orange as well, signifying gigabit connection)

COOL! thats good news dude!

I am going to do some investigating myselfthis afternoon...thanks man!

:-/

still 100Mbit/sec on my nforce 780a Networking controller ...

I compared [url="http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_win7_64bit_15.35.html"]your used driver[/url] and [url="http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_win7_64bit_15.37.html"]my used driver[/url] - both packages contain the Ethernet Driver (v73.06) WHQL, so I already tought this driver"update" will help me ...

by the way: I also do not have installed the Forceware network access manager

now, I got rid of this problem with another way ...
I've used the last windows vista x64 driver from [url="http://www.nvidia.com/object/nforce_vista64_15.26.html"]here[/url] - the driver version is Ethernet Driver (v67.89) WHQL
With this driver I can use now 1GBit link, altough I still cannot see the "Advanced" tab to deavtivate flowcontrol with driver ... but this does not matter as only using 10% speed. ;)

I hope now nvidia will fix the speed with upcoming Windows 7 drivers ;)

on the 28th of august Asus told me that with the release of Windows 7, there will be a driver update.

today they told me that these drivers "will" support gigabit.

lets keep our fingers crossed...

If you all want a new driver, try the WHQL driver 73.14+ from nForce package 15.49. The driver package was leaked from a manufacturer, but you can get links here to the files.

Please let us know how they work out for you.

Just tried those drivers on vista to attempt to solve my no gigabit problem.

No dice - still stuck at 100mb. Inspecting the inf file, i still don't see a mention of 1000mb in any of the settings.

Not looking good :(
