Also are you installing the driver through device manager?
Yeah, I've tried the installers and I've tried device manager.
I'll check the power savings settings, but I disabled Green LAN in the BIOS so it shouldn't be doing that.
Right now I'm trying an old Ubuntu disk I had laying around but its too old and wouldn't have the proper drivers anyway so it isn't helping at all.
