This didnt happen on windows 7 but on windows 8 when I first turn the computer on the intel ethernet card driver has error 10 on it in device manager. If I go to device manager and go to refresh hardware changes or whatever it is the driver starts to work again. I wonder if because windows 8 starts so fast compared to 7 that maybe the ethernet isnt physically ready yet before windows 8 tries to load the driver?

Have you checked the Gigabyte site for an updated NIC driver?

IMO fast boot causes more problems that it does good

Try going to Control Panel > Power Options > Choose what power buttons do > Click the box to enable changing of settings > Disable fast boot

Reboot a couple times and see if that helps

Also you could try Network Adapter properties > Disable the option to allow power savings to turn off this device
