Aquantia 10Gbe fix by disabling one advanced setting on the chip thru device manager!

I was having issues with copying files down to my pc and with Hyper-V client internet downloads basically the speeds were close to 0.

I disabled the "Recv Segment Coalescing (IPv4)" and problem fixed.

Just go to device manager, right click the "Aquantia AQtion 10Gbit Network Adapter" network device under "Network Adapters", select "Properties", and go to the "Advanced" tab.

This is on Windows 10 Feature 1809. I had some weird issues on 1803 too I assume this would have fixed those too.

If you run Hyper-V VMs do not create a virtual switch use the default switch. Although a virtual switch works it significantly slows down the network speeds down more than 1/2. Using the default switch gives you full speed/throughput. This affects the host and client even if your client isn't running.

Just thought I would post this out there for anyone having issues like me. One guy posted a while back he was dropping packets.

Also I upgraded to the latest driver you can get it here:
https://www.aquantia.com/support/driver-download/

pick AQC107 from the part number drop down to get the right driver

Use the 64 bit installer here in the zip:
Aquantia_AQtion_Windows_2.1.12\Aquantia_AQtion_x64_Win_ver_2.1.12\Windows Installer

unless you installed windows 32 bit then use the 32 bit installer

Thanks for the insight. Did you install the new driver over the top of the old one? I actually did not uninstall the old driver first.

Me too. This is my third upgrade of the driver always just installed over the top.

Windows tends to try to install stuff so I beat it to it as you did. Thanks.*

์Newier drivers from both Intel and Aquantia provide better performance. Intel i219 V also update same as Aquantia 107 for better working with
Windows Version 1809.

Did you notice you could no longer ping it with a wake on lan magic packet request to wake it from totally off once the driver was updated?

Folks like you that make the world a better place. Thank you for sharing, this fixed a very frustrating problem I was having with my upload speed being almost zero.

Is there a benefit to using Aquantia card over the intel one? They both read 1.0 Gps in properties.

Since we are on the topic

There is a newish F/W and associated drivers for the the R6E 10Gbit Ethernet chip: Aquantia AQC-107.

The AQC-107 F/w It is not a part of the actual R6E BIOS, but you can flash the chip from the windows command prompt with admin rights. Pretty easy actually.

See https://www.aquantia.com/support/driver-download/ for official driver download page. Select AQC107 (not any of the other variations like AQC107S or AQN107)
See https://www.station-drivers.com/index.php?option=com_remository&Itemid=353&func=fileinfo&id=4125〈=en for the f/w

Latest Driver is version 2.1.18.0
Latest Firmware is version 3.1.90

I'm running this set up since September or so - no problems so far (not using Hyper-V )
