    I was having the same issue, uninstalling bit defender worked for me.

    I've been having same situation, Dell XPS8300. I made the changes to the Power Mgt section of the Network Adapater as mentioned by Dechah which appears to resolved the issue.

    Thank you John!


    I have tried this same fix on my XPS 8300, so we'll see how it holds up. Funny that it took about a week for this to start happening since I did my Windows 10 upgrade and it has happened like 3 times in the last hour. Hopefully rolling back to the old Broadcom driver will do the trick. Otherwise, I may plug in a USB Wireless Adapter to circumvent my Ethernet card. Thanks, John, for the fix.

    I had the same issue after upgrading my Dell XPS the other week. The fix for me seems to be updating the network adaptor driver as mentioned by poster "elshagon" on the previous page of this thread. They linked to this Dell driver page:

    I used the following driver from the R250303.exe file:

    It's been fine since, no network drop outs at all.

    Still working


    24 hours later, no Internet problems after rolling back the driver.

    Not one for leaps of faith


    I have been reading various forums and have not made the full switch to Win10. My XPS 8300 system seems to be a target for hardware failure in this process. Video and networking complaints are the most common.

    Thanks to everyone here for running this one down.

    I'll be white knuckled with fingers crossed when I hit the return key this time. Ugh!

    Glad the fix helped others as well. I'm now about 6 weeks in and no more dropped internet after changing to the driver that was listed.

    I have found that flushing the DNS and reseting the TCP-IP Stack in the command prompt have (or has) provided a successful fix with clientele with the same issue.


    Make sure you are in the command prompt as admin.


    Type in the command ipconfig /flushdns and hit enter.


    Restart or continue to type in the two commands for resting the TCP/IP Stack.


    In the command prompt as admin.


    Type in the command netsh int ip reset resetlog.txt and hit enter.


    Type in the command netsh winsock reset and hit enter.


    Then reboot.
