    Network becomes enabled only after restart


    Hi all,

    This is in continuation to After installing update, system crashes - Windows 10 Forums
    After one week of trying several things out, I finally I installed Windows 10 again with the option to keep all my apps and settings and am able to install updates now.
    But now I am stuck with a weird issue. If I shutdown my system and start, the network symbol on the taskbar shows a red mark and I can't connect to the network then when I restart immediately, the network becomes enabled. When I hibernate and start, sometimes it does a full start from the beginning I lose all the programs that I had opened and kept - this is terrible , in addition the network becomes disabled again and I have to restart again.
    So basically every time I shutdown/hibernate, I have to start it and restart it to enable the network. Please help

    This is interesting. Instead of restarting next time this happens try running the network troubleshooter. Open Settings, search for "trouble," choose "Troubleshoot network," choose "diagnose network connection issues." It may find and fix something. Otherwise, I'm inclined to think you may be having NIC driver issues. Out of curiosity, is the troubled connection wired or wireless?

    Thanks,

    @Brink: you should probably move this thread to the "Network and Sharing" silo instead of "General Support" as it currently stands.

    Thanks for the reply. In order to test what you told, I hibernated my system and started it. It did a full restart - lost all my program and files which was kept open when I had hibernated and as usual network was disabled. I ran the troubleshooter as you advised , but it was not able to identify any issues. This is a wired connection. I went to the network adapter and right clicked and choose diagnose, it ran and said Ethernet cable is not properly plugged in or might be broken. I don't think there is anything wrong with the connection/cable as it works after a restart - which I had to do now just to post this message

    This one's going be a booger to fix. When you get media errors that clear themselves, it's something at the physical layer of the protocol stack that's gone whacko. You can spent hours or days trying to run this down, or you can perform another in-place upgrade repair install and hope that this time the error doesn't show back up.
    All I can say is "Ouch!"

    I'm just gonna take a shot in the dark here... your specs don't say anything about your processor or anything. If you disable fast startup in the advanced power options, uncheck the adapter to allow the computer to turn off this device to save power, I believe your network problems will disappear. Disableing hibernation and just use sleep, is another way to disable Fast Startup. Some systems don't work well with the hybrid form of hybernation that it uses, only affects cold boots and not restarts...

    Good guess, @dmholt57. Worth trying, for sure!

    Jason,

    I agree that you should turn off Fast start at least until you have a clearer picture of the network problem. It is Fast start that is appearing to give different symptoms when shutting down then starting compared to simply restarting.

    As for the problem itself, I have the same problem on one computer. I have never found a solution. What I do when the problem appears is run a pair of commands in an elevated batch file to turn the adapter off then on again. This corrects the problem much more quickly than rebooting.
    Code:
    netsh interface set interface "Wi-Fi" disabled
    netsh interface set interface "Wi-Fi" enabled
    My WiFi card happens to be called "Wi-Fi" but you must find out the name of yours yourself. Probably the easiest way to see its name is to look in
    [Start menu, Windows system] Control panel, [View by - small icons, if necessary to see the next item], Network & sharing centre, Change adapter settings
    {remember, you are looking for the adapter name not the network name here}

    Hi everyone,

    Thank you for your thoughts and your patience.
    I have a desktop, i5-2400 processor,16gb ram, no graphics card,Windows 10 Pro 64bit,Motherboard:Intel DH67CL.
    Brief history: I did not have ANY issues on my system until the last update got installed ().
    I disabled fast startup and hibernated. When I started, it again went into a full restart instead of recovering from hibernation and network was disabled as usual.

    I ran,
    netsh interface set interface "Ethernet" disabled , it says the system cannot find the file specified
    netsh interface set interface "Ethernet" enabled , it says the system cannot find the file specified

    The strange this is that, after I restart and when the network works, that time when I run the above commands, it works without any issues.
    These are some of the additional things I have done now..
    * Ran CCleaner and cleaned up the registry
    * Did Network Reset -where it says this will remove and then reinstall all your network adapter and set ...to their original settings...
    * I did in place upgrade choosing the option to keep my app and settings, but after the upgrade, I lost all my apps. Only my dekstop content was preserved . It was a disaster . Thankfully I had a backup done in August 2018 and I was able to restore from that. But now I have all the issues

    * where it will download updates and cause BSOD!
    * full restart instead of recovery from hibernation
    * network becomes enabled only after restart

    Please help...

    Jason,

    1 Device manager
    When you get the failed network and the command fails, what does Device manager, Network adapters show? Does your adapter appear there at all?
    Does its entry have any warning symbol on it?

    2 Confirm adapter name
    Just to avoid any possible misunderstandings, what name does this command return for your network adapter [when it is all working and again when it is not]?
    Code:
    netsh interface show interface
    3 Network card driver
    Have you been to your computer maker's website and downloaded then installed the latest driver for your network card? If not then do so. If there is an updated BIOS then install that as well because BIOS affects all hardware.
    Personally, I would get install all the hardware drivers from there is you have not already done so.

    4 Potential for a clean install
    If that in-place upgrade was a disaster, do consider running a clean installation of Windows 10.

    5 Send me $5,000 for a bottle of snake oil
    Perhaps all your problems have been caused by messing up your Registry with that third-party tool. Not even MS claims to have a tool capable of reliably cleaning up the Registry [they retired their last one about eight years ago] and cleaning the Registry does not achieve anything anyway. The speed of operation of modern databases, such as but not limited to the Registry, does not get inhibited by the presence of redundant database records.

    Potential for a clean install
    I honestly hope that I don't have to do this..as I need to backup a lot of my stuff so that they can be restored. I am going to keep this as a last option. But what on earth could cause hibernate to not actually recover from it and do a full restart stumps me.I
