z790 hero ethernet problems

When gaming the ethernet adapter freezes for a couple of seconds making the experience unplayable. If I use wifi this does not happen. I've tried both I226 ethernet drivers versions 1.1.3.28 and 2.1.1.14 with no success. Is the adapter that comes with the board broken? Any one else with the same symptoms?

Yeah thanks a bunch! Forcing 1gbps speed is probably what fixed the issue.

z790 apex here with the same Issue.
It is persistent even with the tricks mentioned above.
No power down and 1Gbs Full duplex.

Still the internet connection is a mess:

edit: i`ve managed to get a stable connection @ 1Gbs

! Beware of the network driver installation package.
Due to the fact, that there is no confirmation window, it is easy to install the driver twice in a row.
-> That removed the network card completely from the system. It did not even show up in the device manager anymore.
A third installation fixed that.
