Randomly, the Ethernet and/or built-in wireless connection will disappear from Windoze under Bootcamp. It is entirely random. Is there a fix? I have all the latest Windoze “software updates” installed, this problem just keeps on popping up randomly; restarting fixes the problems. Any ideas welcomed.

Thanks

Have you run Apple Software Update, to see if there's an update for Boot Camp? Apple provides their own custom network drivers as part of BC.

Interestingly enough, my PC had a complete shitfit this weekend which made one of my network interfaces disappear (and the entire system would freeze when I attempted to enable the other interface). It's all back to working order now, but while puzzling through the problem I kept reminding myself this is why I'll never to buy another Foxconn motherboard again.

OK, update time. Seems as though it is reporting back no internet connectivity within a few minutes of booting into Windoze 7. I’ve since disabled the wireless, yet the problem now persists with the wired Ethernet. When I physically unplug the RJ-45 cable from the back of the Mac Pro and then plug it back in, amazingly Windoze is happy and has network access. The real pain in the ass is that I have to do this EVERY time I boot into Windoze. I haven’t played around with Apple Software Update to see if any solutions exist at this time.

In Windows, when it goes out, what happens if you negotiate to the place where it gives you an option to Repair Connection or whatever it is?

You could try uninstalling IPv6 or unbinding IPv6 from the interface.

Control Panel, Network and Sharing center, Change adapter settings, right click, Properties, un-check Internet Protocol Version 6 (IPv6). That unbinds it from the interface so only IPv4 will work from now on.

Also, if your network is listed as "Home" under the Network and Sharing center, change it to Work. Home enables Homegroup networking which requires IPv6 connectivity and generally is an abomination which must be killed at all cost.

Another update: I finally :roll: had time to hook up the Asus RT-N12 wireless router (I’d purchased it I think in November or December of 2013) :fishsmack: to the AT&T supplied “Uverse” (182KB/second download speed maximum :oops: ) modem, and now the “disappearing network connection” gremlin seems to have gone away. Nothing I can do about the 182KB/second speeds, seems I am too far from the central office, and there isn’t any fibre in the new neighbourhood. No biggee, not like I’m streamin’ porn 24x7 or anything like that, and they’re only charging me $24.95/month for the first year. Hopefully they will have faster speeds available sometime soon though, otherwise I may have to go to the dark side *cough*Comcrap*cough*.

Meanwhile, seems as though I have a Tomato’d Linksys WRT54GL wireless router for sale. Anyone interested in it? Works great.
