If you have updated the BIOS, accidently or otherwise, you should restart the computer, access the BIOS , go to the exit page , load the defaults, & exit saving the changes.

If the problem persists try clearing the CMOS & then loading the defaults.

If the problem still persisys then it's time to try older BIOS .

You should be able to go back to an older version of the BIOS by downloading the BIOS file & the flash utility , making a disk [or using the flash feature in the BIOS setup if your motherboard has it] & flahing to an older version.

It sounds like you need to reinstall, or update the driver for your Network Adapter [LAN].

I looked your ga-945gcm-S2L up on the Gigabyte site.

It looks like when you updated your BIOS to the newest version you got "Beta" BIOS.
Beta usually indicates they are still under testing & may still have a few "bugs" .
That is possibly why you encountered a problem with the latest version.


If you haven't done so you might want to download the newest drivers for your motherboard & install them.

Make sure I have the correct motherboard.
Make sure you download the proper drivers for your version of Windows .
I suggest installing the chipset drivers first & then the others.

In nothing else you might want to try the LAN driver & see if it fixes your disconnect problem.
