    Internet Connection Broken/Unstable


    The internet keeps dropping every now and then, becomes unresponsive and then starts working again.
    Long download speeds are broken and not continuous. Is it Windows 10?

    I've added a screenshot of the internet graph, it shouldn't be that way should it?

    Most likely seeing as how it's happening to me and a bunch of other people and I haven't gotten any assistance, just stupid snide remarks about my character.

    If you have the same problem, we can at least narrow it down to being a problem with the OS?

    If your NIC is set to power down to save energy, this may be causing the issue. Check this tab in your NIC properties in Device Manager:

    If the checkbox is ticked, turn it off and see if that helps (it may take a reboot for the setting to take effect).

    I have watched a speed drop from 22MB/s to 16MB/s and also a jumping speed on my home WLAN Network.
    Along with last W10-447 update there were a lot of ChipSet Drivers installed and also a Driver for Realtek GbE Ethernet USB Adapter which is definitively broken, it keeps connecting and disconnecting, I had to delete Driver.
    Sure, this Hardware Drivers are very much Laptop specific and does mean that is yours Problem too.

    My solution was to re-install the Chip Set /Platform Drivers from original OEM.

    Still there is a small drop on speed , about 1,5MB/s but that is not "hurting" too much.

    sorry, for sounding like a noob, but original oem? the driver problem seems to be the problem to me too. but you mean i'd need to reinstall the realtek drivers and chipset drivers both? update them to the latest, should i?
