    Windows 10

    Can't connect to internet

    Ever since I got my computer (which came with Windows 10), I've had trouble connecting to the internet. Every time I shut down and start it up again, it's never online even though I'm using a cat 5 cable hooked directly to the source. My laptop can connect wirelessly, so that's how I know my internet is fine, but it's a Mac (which I'm currently using) so it's a completely different OS.

    Usually if I went into the command prompt and did ipconfig /release then /renew, it fixes it, and I'm online. But ever since doing a recent Windows Update that trick doesn't seem to be working anymore. I've done searching for people with similar issues, and their solutions have not worked for me. I.E. ipv4 and ipv6 are enabled, tried turning off Firewall temporarily to see if that was the issue, tried uninstalling antivirus software.

    I'm wondering if anyone could help me here, it'd be super neat.

    Windows 10 Ent, Pro & Home

    Device Manager/ Network Adapters/ Ethernet device/ right click, go to properties/ Power Management/ uncheck. See if that helps.
