  1. Constant ethernet disconnect while gaming


    Just built my first pc and I’m having an issue with my ethernet dropping out every 5-10m when i’m gaming.

    I’ve done some research and it seems like it has to do with the Windows 10 feature that disconnects your internet connection when using too much power. I’ve changed countless power settings and nothing is working.

    I’ve tried using device manager to change the power management properties of my ethernet connection but the ‘power management’ tab is missing from the properties menu. I’ve tried updating the drivers and that isn’t working either :/

    Any suggestions? TIA

    Constant ethernet disconnects and reconnects on Windows Home 64-bit

    Hello,

    I have a new laptop running Windows 10 Home 64-bit. The problem I am having concerns the ethernet connection.

    I am getting constant disconnects with the ethernet. I am running a connectivity monitor to track these disconnects and in the past 12-hours it has disconnected 21 times. I have gone through the standard "fixes" for such an issue:

    1) Changed the power management settings on the Realtek PCle Family Controller.

    2) Updated the driver

    3) Uninstalled and reinstalled the ethernet card (doing the above two steps again).

    4) Checked to make sure it isn't a modem issue (there have been no disconnects on two other computers, even after swapping ethernet cables).

    5) Installed all Windows updates (this seemed to solve the issue for 1-day, then suddenly the problems started again).

    Please help me with this issue. It is beyond frustrating when trying to play MMORPGS.

    Salud,

    Jon
     
  3. Ethernet and keyboard disconnect

    I tried steps one to three as four seemed a little complicated. The keyboard is now fine. However the ethernet disconnects after i click the game icon and before it has even had a chance to load up

    This has absolutely nothing to do with my issue. Did you even read my post?

    I am having ethernet connection issues, not MIDI sound problems.
