Solution to the high load windows 7 bug Windows 7 x64 Network Adapter Stops working on high load Nicholas Li MSFT, Moderator 2 Sign In to Vote Hi, Considering this issue occurs on 2 different machines, I also think this issue may be more hardware related. You may also try the following: 1. If the computers are connecting to a router, please ensure the router’s firmware is up-to-date. 2. Please run the following command in an elevated command prompt in Windows 7: netsh interface tcp set global rss=disabled netsh interface tcp set global autotuninglevel=disabled netsh int ip set global taskoffload=disabled 3. Disable SNP in Windows 7 by setting Registry as following: Note: Please perform a full-system backup first. [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters] EnableTCPChimney=dword:00000000 EnableTCPA=dword:00000000 EnableRSS=dword:00000000 If the keys do not exist, please create them and assign the value. An update to turn off default SNP features is available for Windows Server 2003-based and Small Business Server 2003-based computers 4. If the issue persists, please add another network adapter to this computer and see how it works. Hope this helps. Thanks.
