All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.
I have an Asus P8Z77-V motherboard with a built in intel 82579V adaptor. For some odd reason its being detected as 82579LM. I’m running windows 8, and the system worked properly before. Its a known issue with the board but the utility meant to fix it either crashes or tells me there’s nothing to do. I’ve also tried the dos version of the utility off a windows 98 liveusb, but it just sits there. How do I fix this?

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.
In the end, for some reason cold booting the system worked for me, I unplugged the mains connection to the system, let it sit overnight and it both detects the correct adaptor type and functions perfectly.
Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
Thank you 🙂
