    Ethernet connection slow and almost not working


    Hi guys,

    I've experienced quite a slow ethernet recently and have no idea why. I tried switching cables and it feels the same. Not sure if its my TP Link AV-500 that's down.

    The error message i got was 'Your computer appears to be correctly configured but the device or resource is not responding'

    Any help is appreciated and do let me know if you require me to post logs etc. Thank you.

    :)

  2. My reliable ethernet connection no longer works

    Hi Marcia,

    To better understand the query, please answer the following questions:

    • After restarting is your computer in normal mode or not?
    • Are you getting any error message?

    I suggest you to reset the modem\ router and check if the Ethernet connection works or not.

    If still the issue persist then I suggest you to follow the steps from the below article
    “Fix network connection issues” and check if it helps.

    Thank you

  3. Ethernet shows red X and does not appear in settings, but still works


    Not sure why this is happening. I have working ethernet and am connected, it works fine. But the taskbar icon shows a red X over it, and the tooltip says "Not Connected - No connections are available". Looking in "Network & Internet", ethernet is not even listed there. And before anyone suggests wireless interference .. this PC does not have a wireless card or integrated wireless.

    Ethernet connection slow and almost not working

    Ethernet Connection (slow internet after upgrading to win10)

    I recently upgraded to windows 10 from 7. Both wifi/ethernet connection is functional except the speed has dropped to a crawl. I have tried all the "fixes" suggested but haven't been able to find a fix (including updating drivers using various methods).
    My current status is:

    Wifi: Still half the speed of what I was getting when using win7 pro.

    Ethernet: Extremely slow connection after boot or coming out of sleep mode. But once I disable and re-enable, the speed is faster than it's ever been.

    I have:

    Dell Inspiron 3847

    Ethernet: Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller

    Possible "fixes" I can think of at this point is:

    Revert back to win7

    Buy new ethernet card

    Seems like many are having similar issues but not quite the same as I'm having. My connection always there but slow at start. But I always have to disable/re-enable for it to work properly. Any suggestion/advice would be really appreciate it.
