    Ethernet keeps losing connection


    Ethernet keeps losing connection for some reason. I thought it was wireless as the picture shows.Ethernet keeps losing connection-ethernet-problem-some-reason.jpg it looks like it's wireless can't connect and this is happening with Ethernet is connected. It loses connection once every 2 minutes and that's no joke and lasts for a couple of minutes. Correct me if I am wrong but it should connect to wireless when this happens. As I have the wireless connection set up. But Ethernet won't let it connect I know this as I have been wireless for 2 weeks now. I haven't lost connection once. But I would like to be connected through Ethernet as I lose 60 meg going wireless and I am right next to router. Has anyone got any ideas how to fix this? Thank you in advance.

    You may find settings in the Advanced tab of the Ethernet adapter properties, they set the priority when plugged in and turn off the WiFi...

    I know that the router can handle up to 300meg and maybe more should this be enabled? Ethernet keeps losing connection-should-enabled.jpg
    I don't see anything with any amount of meg you were talking about Samuria.

    I have virtually the same issue, perhaps not so bad as dropout is often brief (I rely on Ethernet without switching to Wireless) , so I am following this with interest. I wont say more as I don't want to hijack or cause any confusion, except for this point--- I know the fault is not with the Hub as I have 3 other devices connected to it: TV, phone, tablet ---- TV uses the Ethernet ---- and they are all connecting perfectly.
