I'm afraid but it looks like hnak gave up on his project several month ago. I already thought about fixing this driver myself but came to the conclusion that starting from scratch would be the preferred solution. As soon as I finish my Realtek driver update, I will start a new project: writing a replacement for this driver. I already set up my development machine and will definitely start during the next weeks.
Thats great news Mieze! I my self have had more success with the 2.14.4 Driver on my Z77N-WiFi system. I have added the WoL code that @diddl14 used to get WoL working in the later driver. It is not perfect as I get occasion dropped packets as well as ping timeouts when using "HELIOS LanTest" to stress test the driver.
I would like to offer my time to help debug your new project once its underway. I would love to have a stable Intel driver for the I217V NIC which seems to be very common with the Intel 8 series motherboards. So I am happy to help in any way. debug logs, crash dumps, feedback, etc.
