Neat trick for unstable network cards

Are you experiencing an unstable network card? And have you perhaps run out of alternative network card drivers to try out?

For years I had problems with my Atheros L1 Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000Base-T card every time I decided to give it a new chance. It would usually freeze up on me within seconds when uploading data with it.

But today I finally stumbled upon a solution:

By deactivating "Task Offload" the card started working properly again immediately after being reactivated.

Perhaps this neat little trick works for you as well since you’re here reading this post.
