    Windows 10 will only connect to Ethernet


    Hi all,


    I'm back again. This time, I've got a different situation.


    Just this morning, I activated my Windows 10 ISO from the USB drive, so that is all good.


    The desktop and systems are operating just fine; however, it will only connect to Ethernet and it won't let me connect to a WiFi network.

    I tried clicking on 'Show available networks' but it gave me the same thing: the window that popped up from the Network button on the dock, and every time it said the same thing: 'Network and Internet Settings: Change settings, such as making a connection metered.


    I also connected my Ethernet hub to the PC, but it still says that I don't have Internet access. What should I do? Thanks.

    :)

    Windows 10 Ethernet connection randomly disconnects

    Hello,

    So this issue has been annoying me since i have changed my old i5-4670 with a ryzen.

    Ethernet: Realtek 8111H (MSI X370 Gaming Plus)
    Modem/Router: Airties Air 5760

    What i have tried so far to fix my issue:
    • Re-installing Windows
    • Updating Ryzen chipset drivers
    • Updating Realtek LAN drivers (both from MSI & Realtek)
    • Updating MSI' LAN releated drivers (MSI Gaming Lan Manager)
    • Replacing ethernet cable
    • Restarting router to factory settings
    Still no luck, keeps happening randomly. Sometimes it is stable for days then it is not stable for 20 mins. Happening when gaming or idle, or while streaming via steam link.
    Windows' own issue fixer thingy fix the issue for the moment, re-plugging the cable, disabling & enabling the ethernet adapter also fixes the issue for the moment.
    Also i am the only one having this issue in the network, TV and phones are still connected to wifi.

    It is started to be real annoying, so time to get help to fix the issue from TPU. Thanks in advance! *I Love TPU :lovetpu:

    I suggest checking out the event log in Windows. It's likely going to tell you why (to some degree,) why the network connection was lost. I haven't had this issue with wired connections but, with wireless it has almost always come down to drivers or a strange software bug which boiled down to how the driver operates.

    Windows 10 will only connect to Ethernet

    Setting a metered connection for Ethernet?


    Please permit me to respectfully disagree, battlezone. Not only is it possible to do this, TenForums offers a tutorial that explains exactly how, step-by-step: Set Ethernet Connection as Metered or Unmetered in Windows 10. Do please check it out, won't you?
    Thanks,
