  1. Wired Ethernet connection keeps dropping


    Suddenly for NO REASON Windows 10 drops the ethernet to "unidentified network" "No internet".


    The network utility comes back and gives a DNS error. I can ping out by IP address, I can ping the router- I CAN'T send a browser to the router's internal address for management- much less the internet.


    Wifi on the SAME MACHINE works. EVERY OTHER COMPUTER IN THE HOUSE WORKS!

    Why does Windows 10 suddenly REFUSE to use Ethernet and act as if there's a DNS trouble for IT ALONE but not the Wifi to the SAME ROUTER?!


    I had absolutely TOTALLY REINSTALLED WINDOWS to fix this literally TWO DAYS AGO! It worked just fine until this evening when it started to do the EXACT SAME thing I had to reinstall (b/c restore point attempts and repair attempts ALL FAILED).


    What the heck is wrong with Windows that it just up and KILLS its own ethernet connection like this?!

    :)

  2. Wired Ethernet connection keeps dropping

    I just updated to Windows 10 and now my wired connection keeps dropping. Its not the router or the internet because it happened when I was away at school. I looked at other forums but their solutions weren't working for me. Its a pretty new laptop, I just
    got it in August. To get the internet to work again all I have to do is unplug the ethernet from my laptop and reinsert it and it works again for a few minutes.

  3. Wired Ethernet Connection Constantly Dropping (Windows 10)

    My mom recently purchased a laptop from HP running Windows 10. I hooked it up to our Xfinity modem/router via Ethernet and the wired connection is consistently dropping for 5ish seconds, connecting again for a second or two, and then repeating the process.
    Connection over WiFi has no problems whatsoever. My own laptop that runs 8.1 has no problems with the same 2-in-1 modem/router, whether wired or wireless.

    Any suggestions as to what I can do to remedy the problem?

    Wired Ethernet connection keeps dropping

    My internet keeps dropping out!


    I suggest you connect your laptop to the router with a ethernet cable. If the wired connection is stable you know that there is nothing wrong with the internet connection itself and with your LAN. Next step would be to go to the website of your laptop manufacturer and look for the latest WLAN drivers. Install them and test whether it improves the reliability of your WLAN connection. Then post back the results.
