Re: All Mint Editions Intel I217V Ethernet Hangs on Z87 Boar

I built a workstation last year with a 3rd generation Core i7 and a micro ATX Asus motherboard. Last week I built another workstation with a 4th generation Core i5 and a mini ITX Gigabyte motherboard. The 4th generation Intel Asus motherboards reportedly have some wifi issues.
