  1. Ethernet Drops Connection When Downloading Large Files


    Every time I download a large file my Ethernet connection on my Windows 10 PC drops. Saying "default gateway not available" in the troubleshooter. This always gets fixed on a pc restart, but it is very inconvenient to restart every time I update a game or download something large.

  2. Windows 10 Enterprise Ethernet Connection Drops?

    I just installed and plugged in a new Windows 10 Enterprise HP box into our network and it is intermittently dropping and reconnecting the Ethernet connection. It is not reliable.

    Suggestions?

    Win10 ethernet connection dropping,identifying,connected then drops

    I need help with my Windows 10 HP laptop network connection issue at home

    My internet keeps cutting in and out when connected through my ethernet cable to the router/modem
    Sais connected, then disconnects, then identifying, connected, then drops again and does this every 30 seconds sometimes a little sooner or a little later

    ( I have TWC or Spectrum now lol ) When it's on wireless wifi my internet is fine

    I think the problem lies in the Properties of (TCP/IPv4) or (TCP/IPv6 )
    and has something to do with DNS or DHCP but I am not sure

    I tried unplugging all the cables and restarting the modem and computer this doesn't work neither did the trouble shooting, my Windows 8.1 laptop does not give me this problem

    I already did the netsh wlan show wlanreport in command, also I tried ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew in the command window but still the same problem after restarting

    If you have any idea how to fix this send me an email I can also call you it would be greatly appreciated!

    Ethernet Drops Connection When Downloading Large Files

    RDP and Network Connection Drops While on Ethernet

    I have the following setup:

    2 x windows 10 and 1 X windows 7 computers connected to the same router through cable having 192.168.0.1 as the router gateway.

    win7-box: 192.168.0.38
    win10-box1: 192.168.0.211
    win10-box2: 192.168.0.24

    I am connecting from win7-box, which I'm using as the main machine, through RDP to the other 2 win10 machines.

    The connection to 192.168.0.211 runs smoothly but when I connect to 192.168.0.24, the connection gets interrupted after 30-60 seconds and I get the "This computer can't connect to the remote computer" error:

    While ping 192.168.0.24 -t from 192.168.0.38 was running I got this:

    Even if after the The connection has been lost error that corresponds to the Request timed out ping error - the connection seems to be restored (as ping is up again), if I try to RDP again I get the "Destination host unreachable" error.

    Now I cannot RDP to 192.168.0.24 anymore until I manually log into this host by physically using its keyboard.

    I also did a ping 192.168.0.1 -t on 192.168.0.24 and noticed the General Failure error that corresponds to the Request timed out from the win7-box

    enter image description here

    I also noticed that I get the General Failure error intermittently, even if don't try a RDP connection on this win10-box2 machine.

    What I did:

    I tried a Network Reset from the Network&Internet settings:

    • Tried switching the cable itself and the cable port on the router
    • Tried using a different static ip, other than 192.168.0.24
    • Tried using the wireless connection to the same router and noticed that even if do get some isolated Request timed out error when continuously pinging win10-box's ip, no issues are found and RDP connection is stable.

    I assume this has to be something wrong in my current win10-box2 configuration as the router seems to be working fine on other devices.

    The network configuration on win10-box2 is as follows:

    The question would be - what else should I try/check in order to solve this issue?
