  1. Random Ethernet Disconnects


    I have been having an issue with reoccurring disconnects even though I am on an ethernet connection. The wifi remains on but my computer disconnects for a minute. I have already updated and reinstalled the network driver, restarted internet, and changed ethernet cables. Is there any other way to stop the random disconnects from occurring?

    :)

  2. Constantly disconnecting with ethernet cable

    Hello,

    Thank you for keeping us posted on the status of the issue.

    I suggest you to check if rolling back the Ethernet driver helps to resolve the issue. Follow the below steps.

    • First of all, Press Windows logo + R from keyboard. It will open
      RUN.
    • Now type devmgmt.msc and press Enter to open Device Manager.
    • You will see all the device list of your PC. Expand Network Adapters
    Rollback driver

    Double click on your Ethernet driver in Device Manager. Then Click on
    Driver tab and select Rollback.

    Important: If your drive is performing well and there is no error, Rollback driver button will be grayed out as an option.

    If it still does not help, I suggest you to reinstall the drivers for the Ethernet driver and check if it helps to resolve the issue.

    Note: Once you uninstall the drivers the Ethernet adapter device will be disabled and you won’t be able to connect to internet. So it is advisable to keep all the installer files as a back up in your hard drive.

    Write to us with the results for further assistance.

    Thank You.

  4. Random Ethernet Disconnects

    Sleep Mode Disconnects Ethernet Internet Connection - An Oldie but a Goodie

    Hi,

    There's a possibility that your Ethernet connection is not enabled to wake on magic packet. For us to isolate this, let's look into the advanced settings of your network adapter. Follow these steps:

    1. Navigate to Device Manager > Network adapters.
    2. Right-click on your Ethernet connection and click Properties.
    3. Click the Advanced tab.
    4. Under Property, scroll down and select Wake on magic packet.
    5. Set the value to Enabled.
    6. Click OK.

    Once done, try to observe if Ethernet connection still disconnects if put to sleep mode.

    Looking forward to your reply..

    Regards.
