For the past few months I have been having odd disconnections where there appears to be no pattern or cause to it.
Some days I can go without getting a single disconnection while other days I can get them every minute for a while. Sometimes the computer will regain connection just afterwards while other times it can take 30 seconds to recover or I have to re-plug my powerline adapter.
I have tried various diagnostics like changing the powerline adapter to another plug or another wall socket. I have tried changing cables from cat 6 to 5. I have swapped between my onboard nic connector and a dedicated nic card with the same result. I have even got an electrician out to swap out the wall socket's face plate.
I am beginning to think that it is the motherboard at the route of all this and some aspect of it is on its way out.
I am currently saving for a new computer (because of this issue) but I would like to resolve it. I do understand though that some problems can't be resolved and the only solution is new hardware.
This is the second time I've had to write this post due to a disconnection.
