Maximus VIII Hero - Ethernet speed drops

Hi,

Do you have or have heard about problems with LAN Ethernet intermittent speed drops on M8 Hero (Win 10 x64, no AI Suite installed)?

In my case I have connected PC to Linksys EA6900 via CAT 5e cable (1Gbyte). In most time Internet transfer speed is good (ca. 40-50Mbps), but sometimes it drops to 0-few Kbps. It is not a problem with Internet, rather with Ethernet, because i can't even login to my router.
I use latest Asus LAN drivers, 2202 BIOS, Win 10 x64 PRO.

Any help will be appreciated.

Problem identified - the f***ed WIN 10 Anniversary Update (1607) was the problem. I have downgraded to 1511 and Internet speed is stable.

That's strange. I don't have issues before or after the win10 anniversary update. Cat5e connected to Asus N66U router.

I found this problem on many MS related pages (google: "Win 10 Anniversary Update internet speed slow") -> problems with internet speed after Win 10 1607 upgrade... No solution found yet 😞
