Windows 10 VM loses network connection

Using a bridged network connection using the virtio driver. If I work the connection hard (eg. downloading a game from steam at 40 MB/s) the network drops out. This can be reproduced regularly by putting the network under heavy load.

 

Any suggestions?

As a test I copied a 6 GB file from my server to my Windows VM, it can sustain a 120MB/s transfer without a problem.

 

Have you tried to install the latest virtio driver?

Yes, I've got the latest drivers. Tried a reinstall. Same issue. Seems to be affected by whether my GPU is passed through or not. Running a test without the GPU and steam is able to handle a sustained download.

 

Very strange.

I only do remote desktops, have no experience with GPU passthrough setups, maybe somebody else can comment.

Seems to definitely be related to the virtio network driver. If I edit the VM xml and use the intel e1000 driver, it works fine.
