    Unstable LAN connection

    Hi guys,

    I'm new to the forum, but in the desperate search for some help and answers, I hope somebody here can help me.
    Google seams hopeless at this point.

    I have a server running Windows 10 Pro. All my other devices on my LAN works without any problem.

    I don't know where to start diagnosing, since all I know is that the computer looses connection to WAN and gateway about 12% of the time.

    Here I have pinged the gateway and and WAN website.

    The server spec:

    I noticed that the LAN drivers where "stock" windows, so I downloaded the newest drivers from Asus. They where not new, but thought that maybe drivers from Motherboard manufacture would work a bit better.
    They did, until I had to reboot my gateway/modem. Now the problem is back, and can't fix it with re-installing the drivers.

    I'm able to be connected to the server via VPN despite the bad connection, but some of the services on the server have trouble keeping the connection, so I have to do something.

    I'm kind off clueless what to do next and how to investigate/fix.
    Anyone that could assist me?

    How are you running that Server? In a VM? If only on the VPN, that is your issue, along with your Upload speed to your computer has a lot to do with it. If on just the LAN, try swapping out Ethernet cables and the ports on the Gateway. If the computer is not next to the Gateway, move it next to it and test that way to rule out a bad ethernet jack and run. Request timed out is caused by the firewall blocking multiple ping requests, which is normal.
