    ethernet becomes disabled after some time

    Hi, i recently updated to windows 10. I'm having some difficulties regarding internet through Ethernet on It. what usually happens is i am able to surf the Ethernet for around 10 minutes, then the ethernet adapter just quits on me. So i run the network trouble shooter and find you that it needs to reset the DNS, which it does successfully. After that my Ethernet doesn't work anymore till I restart the Laptop. my computer's wifi card is an intel wireless n 7260, and the other network adapter is a pcie gbe family controller.

    Probably Windows Update replaced your Realtek drivers with Microsoft that are not perfect. Download latest drivers from Realtek (look for the Gigabit, PCI Express download) and install it. To prevent Windows Update replacing the driver again, hide the relevant update.
