Recurring problem with Ethernet2021-04-21T08:05:17+01:00

Good morning and Happy Holidays to all,

I’m running Windows 10 Home Build: 19041 My DNS setting aren’t the problem since I’ve check that and Flushed DNS and restarted.
There is no rhyme or reason I can see but with Ethernet, occasionally some sites will load, some will not.

Wifi does not exhibit this problem.

I had Proxy detect on but have turned it off. Still no joy. \

Any help would be very much appreciated.

I haven’t installed new cable yet. And the problem is solved after un/reinstalling the Ethernet Adapter.

Did you replace the Ethernet cable from the computer to the Router?
Before you pull your cable under your house and your hair out, Enable the Hidden Administrator Account, sign out as You, and sign in as the previously Hidden Administrator. See if you still have problems with the Ethernet. If not then your User account Profile has an issue. You can create a new User Profile with Admin rights and copy your stuff over to it.

HP Pavillion
Motherboard: HP 8615 (FP5)

I’ve just installed the latest Realtek Pcie GbE Family Controller driver Version: 10.45.928.2020 to no avail.

I know the cable running 70 feet under the house is pretty old and is Cat 5 24 AWG Stranded

I’m going to get under the house and pull some Cat 6 550MHz, UTP, Pure Bare Copper Wire, 24AWG to replace it.

UPDATE – I’ve updated Realtek Pcie GbE Family Controller to no avail. I’ve also switched ports on the modem which did not help to include power cycling the modem but no joy.

I then uninstalled and reinstalled the Controller in Device Manager while keeping the updated driver and Ethernet working properly again.

I’m still going to pull some outdoor Cat 6 solid copper.

What is the Make and Model# of your computer or motherboard?
Go to the manufacturers download drivers site and download the Ethernet LAN drivers.
Power cycle the Router (ie) unplug the power, wait a few seconds and plug it in again.
Try a different Ethernet Cable
Try a different Ethernet port on the Router
