    I also have the same issue as the OP with the Broadcom Ethernet driver dropping my internet connection. I've also tried everything the OP did (including manually installing newer driver V, but ALL to no avail.

    It got to a point where I ended up buying Plugable's USB 3.0 Gigabit Ethernet Adapter: and this is also dropping the Win 10 built in ASIX drivers where I have to continuously reinstall the drivers/Rollback/unplug the USB 3.0 adapter etc.......all to no avail.
    Plugable support is quite good/actively communicate with me and are sending a free replacement (in case this one might be defective), but I'm a bit skeptical and think it's more of a Win 10 driver issue.....IDK.

    Anyone know of a solution to this?
    I'm really trying to avoid reverting back to Win 8.1 as I do like Win 10 and EVERYTHING else is working perfectly.........just not the internet.......

    I had the same problem as described above with an old motherboard.
    I'm not sure if this is a solution, but I changed the sleep state of my computer from S4 to S5, and it seems to work for now.
