OS requirements : Windows 10 64 bit or more recent.
Hardware requirements : Intel Ethernet/WiFi/Bluetooth controller.


TIPS :

If you want to manage the drivers (remove old/unused drivers for example) that you have in your Windows DriverStore
Use Driver Store Explorer (Right click on "Rapr.exe" > Run as administrator).

If you want better interrupts delivery latency
Enable MSI (Message Signaled-based Interrupts) mode on all your supported devices (see the column "supported modes") with
MSI Mode Utility (Right click on "MSI_Mode_Utility_v3.exe" > Run as administrator).

Ok so I've read about it.
It might depend on which controller we got. V1 or updated V2? Someone on reddit told all new boards have this bug fixed and updated with the new version of I225V..
I've just rolled back to 1.0.0.13 and set manually to 1.0 gbits full duplex. Ran a few test for packet loss- 0% so far.
Will do further testing and post if any issues.....But we need this fix from intel ASAP. It is sad that it appears to be a Hardwire problem with controller. How could they not have tested this?


Thank you for answers. guys.


You can check what controller you got by looking at the HW ids.... At the end will have a V2 if you got a V2.. BUT.......

While your initial issue with complete disconnects has disappeared by rolling back driver. I still really believe the NIC isnt acting as good as it should... Myself and a few others that ive found on various forums have experienced throttling on high speed internet and the intel I225-V. I spend a few weeks trying to figure it out, including a completely new motherboard... With that being said ive also seen some people say its working fine for them. So I dunno.... I dunno but but i feel something isnt right.....

Also I hate to be the bearer of bad news but who ever on reddit is saying the V2 is fully bug fixed is wrong... People have found the V2 still suffers from issues......... Issues that according to some are still on a hardware level. 😞 But that it just MIGHT be possible Intel can try to mitigate the issue in the future with new firmware releases. The problem has to do with compatibility with certain switches from what I understand........

There is already a V3 expected later this year.... LOL... Its kinda bad.... https://wccftech.com/intel-foxville-i225-v-2-5gbe-networking-issues-persist-z490-motherboards-affect...

Im not that impressed to be honest with you.... Im lucky enough that my Z490 board also has a Aquantia 10gb lan aswell. So Ive been just using that... This intel one is buggy.......

Hey guys I am having a problem with latest firmware 1.45 and latest driver.
The connection disrupts for 5 or so seconds, the windows taskbar icon goes "no internet" then it reconnects.
Started to happen when I updated to latest driver.
Before with version 1.0.0.13 no issues. Any new drivers soon? Should I rollback?

Same issue i rolled back works ok now

Hello there!

I have these drivers here installed and I don't know if it is related, but I am experiencing issues at boot up where I result not being correctly connected to my lan network. It often happens that at Windows boot that I result connect to an Unknown Network with no lan, and consequently, no internet access.

When it happens I have to disable/enable the network adapter from Windows settings a few times or unplug/plug in the lan cable a few times.

Checked my router and it seems to work good. Could it be a driver issue? Where can I find your last driver so to try that out and see if it indeed is related to this last version?

Thank you in advance.


That could be from applying some tweaks on your Windows. Wait 30-60seconds. it will get connected, just wont be right away. If thats your case...

If you use a Drivers & Sofware version (not Drivers Only), uninstall it then restart and follow the Install Process.

You probably don't meet the OS requirements :

OS requirements : Windows 10 64 bit 1903/19H1/18362.x or more recent for some drivers.

Hello and thanks for the updates .
Can you send me a link for previous version of "I225 - Windows 11" driver please ?

Thanks .

I'm not sure what you mean by Drivers & Software version. I'm pretty sure that I only have the driver installed.

I mean, if you see Intel Network Software in your apps installed, uninstall it.
