    Home network connection issues


    I have my PC and my laptop sharing to each other over the same WiFi network, using their PC names. I can access one from the other to transfer docs or sync folders. That is, until a couple days ago. Now all of a sudden they either won't connect at all or will take several tries before they do. When I can finally connect, 20 minutes later I can no longer connect.

    Sometimes I can connect via IP but not name, sometimes neither. It's maddening. It was all working flawlessly before this started. It may have started when my machines received the last Windows update, but I'm not sure.

    :)

    Network Connectivity Issue

    Hi,

    The problem you've encountered with your network connection is most likely caused by an outdated network driver since this appeared after the recent update. We suggest updating the driver for your network adapter. Please follow the steps below:

    • Right-click Windows key and click Device Manager.
    • Expand the Network adapters category.
    • Right-click the one that says Ethernet Connection, then click
      Update Driver
      .
    • Select Search automatically for updated driver software.
    • If Windows is unable to find a new driver for your network adapter, try checking its manufacturer's website.

    If the above steps don't work, try reinstalling the driver. Here's how:

    • Open Device Manager, right-click the name your network adapter, then select
      Uninstall.
    • Restart your PC and Windows will attempt to reinstall the driver.

    Update us with the result.

    Regards.

    Issues with network adapters

    Hi Alfonso,

    To resolve this issue, we suggest that you run the Network troubleshooter when you switch from WiFi to Ethernet connection. The Network troubleshooter can help diagnose and fix common connection problems including clearing the network cache to obtain a new
    IP from the new network. Kindly follow the steps below:

    • In the search box on the taskbar, type Identify and repair network problems, and then select
      Identify and repair network problems from the list of results.
    • Follow the steps in the troubleshooter and see if that fixes the problem.

    If the issue persists, kindly try the troubleshooting steps on the following link:

    Fix network connection issues in Windows 10
    .

    We recommend that you try the steps on the Update the network adapter driver,
    Run the Network troubleshooter followed by networking commands, and Use network reset to reinstall network devices sections.

    Let us know how it goes for us to assist you further.
