    as i was sure its some kind of driver problem i've installed a wifi adapter just to confirm.. and it has worked like a charm.

    so the thing is: both windows update drivers and manufacturer drivers needs to be updated as they're causing the issue

    for the card Atheros L1 Gigabyt Ethernet 10/100/1000 Base-T Controller (L1)

    the solution is the driver version 2.4.7.29

    Vasiliy if u have the same card you can download the driver from here:

  • Hey SeteboS,

     

    You can also try using the compatibility troubleshooter to help the installation of drivers that are designed for a different version of Windows. The compatibility troubleshooter can be opened by:

    • Enter the Start screen
    • Move your mouse to the bottom left of the screen to expand the Charms section
    • Select Search
    • Type Compatibility
    • Click Settings in the right column
    • Click Run programs made for previous versions of Windows

     

    Then follow the prompts and direct the troubleshooter to the installer for your computer's driver/drivers.

     

    Hope that helps.

  • Have the save kind of issue. Exactly if try to copiy any file to the remote folder (on Windows 7 x64) the BSOD is immediately appeared every time. If copy the file from the remote folder to the local folder - works OK

  • Hey SeteboS and Vasiliy Novikov,

     

    Let's try refreshing Windows Developer Preview to see if you still encounter the same problem afterward. Here is what will happen you when you refresh your PC:

    • Your files and personalization settings won't change.
    • Your PC settings will be restored to their defaults.
    • Apps from Windows Store will be kept. All other apps will be removed.

     

    Follow the steps below to restore your PC:

    • Enter the Start screen
    • Click Control Panel
    • Click General on the left column
    • Under the Refresh your PC without affecting your files, click Get started

     

    Then follow the instructions that will be displayed on the screen.

     

    Once your computer has finished the refresh process, test to see if the same problem occurs when you try to use your local network.

     

    Look forward to hearing back from you.
