If like me you are having issues with the default network driver with a constantly disconnecting/reconnecting adapter, this was/is my fix


First step is to download the latest driver to your PC. Change to the driver src directory and compile the driver module:

make install

Then remove the old driver from the kernel and load the new driver:

rmmod e1000e
modprobe e1000e

Then rebuild initrd:

update-initramfs -u -k all

You can check the used driver using ethtool or cat

ethtool -i eth1
cat /sys/module/e1000e/version
