Intel 4965agn driver on x64 BSOD with large xfers!!!!

2008-08-18, 5:30 AM

Hello -

 

Intel 4965agn driver on x64 BSOD with large xfers when connected at link speed negotiated at N!!!! This seems to affect a lot of people. Does anyone know if a patch has been released? Intel has released a couple of driver revs since this issue was 1st observed, but none of them addresses the issue (several months ago!!!) At this point, I am a fraction of a sec away from dumping the Intel hardware and going with Atheros. I am only hesitating because I don't want to trade one set of problems for another (ie. I don't know much about Atheros stability and performance under x64 with N routers).

 

Thanks,

 

Michel

How "large"?

 

I'm regularly doing transfers in excess of 1GB using 4965AGN cards ruuning in 802.11n mode with Vista Ultimate x64 and the current Lenovo supplied drivers on various a T61 and X61, without any problems at all!

 

Cheers,

Try using P2P for instance. Azureus to d/l free HD content (car shows, bike stunts, etc...) Anything that will keep the link saturated at 500-600kb/s for a couple of hours. It is occuring with P2P quite a bit. The P2P clients (Azureus, uTorrent, etc...) are usually blamed for the crashes. But I had 10 (yes, 10) separate dumps that I analyzed with windb and the Intel driver is to blame. Still have several of the minidumps if you are interested.

 

Thanks,

Finally found the problem!! The issue occurs when security is *turned off*!! Once I turned on security (WPA2 / AES), the system stopped BSOD when performing large transfers.

 

Thanks,
