If you have a FRED with a 10Gb Intel Converged Ethernet Adapter and it randomly disconnects from the network, please update the drivers. They can be downloaded from here. Make sure to reboot your system afterwards.

If you get a message that you must un-install the "advanced features", use "Add or Remove Programs" to remove this software and confirm that the Hyper-V virtual switch configuration is not referencing the Converged Adapter. You will have to reboot after changing the Hyper-V settings. Remember to re-select the Converged adapter in the Hyper-V virtual switch configuration after the update is complete.
