I don't believe Graphic drivers have anything to do with Internet connections. You should look at your Network driver and see if there is an update or there is a problem with it (Yellow Exclamation mark in Device Manager).
I had absolutely no sign of error anywhere. But I can assure you it defenitely messed up with it : I launched a download of a huge file(1+ Gb) when the driver was installed : it struggled to reach ~750 kBits/s. But when I uninstalled the driver, while the download was still on, the speed went to 10 Mbits/s.
Update on my situation : I completely erased (format of my main SSD), re-installed Win 10 pro, and the results are :
- The driver doesn't crash anymore, I did not test any game still.
- The speed of my internet connection is better, BUT is not fully operationnal. I'm now at a speed of 5 Mbits/s, which is half the normal speed (A laptop near me can download up to 11 Mbits/s at this moment, while my desktop can't).
So the problem remains, and I still don't know where it comes from. I thought that a full format would fix it, but now I'm desperate.
This is not an uncommon problem, see there :
I was going thru the links you posted. Have you checked to see if your firewall is the problem? Temporarily disable your Firewall (Windows or 3rd party) and see if you get internet connection. If you do, then something (possibly anti-virus program) is causing the Firewall to block all internet connections. If not, Check your Network Driver and see if it is running with no problems. Run Windows Network troubleshooter and see what it comes up with.
I totally disabled the antivirus and firewall, no succes either :/
The network driver is working fine, no error anywhere. Windwos troubleshooter doesn't detect anything wrong.
BUT this afternoon I had time and I went with a hardware approach, not a software : here are my results and thoughts :
My motherboard is a ASUS Z97-A ATX with several PCI-E 3.0 16x, and I have a wifi card on a PCI-E 1.0 slot (I got two 1.0 slots). I just have these two cards on my PCI slots.
What I did (I must have desperate to do that, but lucky) : I changed the position of my cards, to make some space between the two cards : the Radeon on the bottom, and the Wifi card on the top.
And... it works. I don't know why and how, but I have the full speed now.
So, could the graphic card interfere with the network card ? with the wifi ? I don't know, I never met this kind of problem.
I'll be monitoring everything for some time, and if it still works I guess I should make this topic resolved.
Hey, Good troubleshooting. I have read that WiFi does seem to interfere with AMD drivers for some reason. At least while being installed. If it occurs again, disable Wifi and see if it fixes it. If it does, you have your answer. I have Wifi card on my computer, luckily, it hasn't affected anything on my system.
I have also read that it is best to install the GPU on the PCIex16 slot closest to the CPU.
Yes, I'm quite happy right now
I'll have to test with a RJ45 cable (which I have not at the moment) to see if with the original configuration it still causes problem.
I still seem to encounter some crashes of the driver while on light games, I'll try to re-install the driver with the wifi off, maybe then I'll have no problem at all !
In the meantime I managed to undervolt the Vega 64 to 910 mV at the P7 state, no artefact, no OC yet, and overclock the HBM2 at 1105 Mhz (with the stock air cooler). It's promising !
I'll keep uptated in the next few days if any problem shows up, if not I'll close this topic.
So, didn't experience any problem, for several days.
I should close this topic.
Thanks for the help !
