    Windows 10 internet connection dead every two hours

    Hi Friends,

    I had Windows 7 Home Basic (64 Bit) on my PC just a few days ago, which has been upgraded to Windows 10. But whenever I use the internet via a LAN connection to a router, I get disconnected after a certain period of time for no apparent reason. I went into Control Panel > Device Manager > Network Adapters. Right-click on it and tried to update it, but it said its already updated. For example, please have a look at the below image, its for example only.


    My motherboard is - Gigabyte GA-H61M-S1

    I know that it does not support Windows 10. Under the Specification link, you should find this

    "Operating System : Support for Microsoft® Windows® 8/7/Vista/XP"

    GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-H61M-S1 (rev. 2.0)

    But this very page also offers the drivers for Windows 10 under the link called "Support & Downloads", here there are

    GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1155 - GA-H61M-S1 (rev. 2.0)

    Imgur: The most awesome images on the Internet

    And, I have installed them also, but the problem is still there.

    Can you please help?

    I have tried a few tricks as suggest by a few YouTube videos listen below, but nothing has helped me so far.

    How to fix internet connection problem for windows 10 users - YouTube

    How to FIX One or more network protocols are missing / Windows sockets registry entries are missing - YouTube

    one or more network protocols are missing on this computer!! - [Fix] - YouTube

    Whenever I start my PC, internet connection is there, but I get disconnected every 2 hours for some weird reason.

    I tried the Troubleshoot Problems option in Control Panel > Network and Sharing Center, but it gave me this error "one or more network protocols are missing on this computer"

    It looks something like the below image,


    Thanks a lot.

Everything was hunky dory until just after I downloaded CrystalDiskInfo via Cnet. Probably just a coincidence as I have had no trouble using either before. I E refused to start and the only option was to reload W 10 afresh.
