    I am having the same issue. I have tried many of the same steps and it still disconnects every few hours. It was worse before I disabled the power management on the network adapter. I also tried disabling McAfee's firewall. And removing all the wired devices from my router thinking perhaps the router was overloaded. My wireless connections are all fine. Other devices wired to the router are fine. Just this PC keeps losing it's connection. I the drivers are up to date per the Windows 10 'Update Driver' check. To get the connection back, I have to reboot the PC and reset then LAN - neither alone work.

    I have a Broadcom NetLink Gigabit Ethernet adapter. cnmsales, what adapter do you have? Another thread on here had the same adapter as I did. The only other correlation I found was that it is worse when the Philips Hue hub is connected to the router. It seems to me there is a router conflict and this connection gets shut down somehow. Then it does not auto reset. But I don't know much about network cards and routers so that's a very weak theory at the moment.
    I am having this exact problem, I have the same gigabit adapter. If i do facebook or youtube, it apparently pulls too much traffic and my connection completetly shuts off. I have tto do the troubleshoot tool, and that may fix it 2 out of 3 times. After that I have to hard reboot the entire system, then troubleshoot again, and it will ask to repair as adminstrator.

    If i try to repair as admin from the getgo it wont work. Has ANYONE found a fix for this? Been dealing with this since the windows 10 launch.

    Determine the chipset of your broadcom card. See this link on how to do it

    Ethernet NIC Driver Support | Broadcom

    Then go to this link

    Downloads | Broadcom

    and download the drivers for your chipset. Then update your drivers manually with the downloaded drivers.
    If you don't mind, speak to me as if i were a child that doesn't know how to use a TV remote. How exactly do you manually update your drivers? I've been to the broadcom sites and download drivers. none of them come in .exe files to easily update and I have no clue as to how to use these files.

    I found what seems to be a fix in a technical preview thread.

    Device Manager Method
    Start ŕDevice Manager ŕNetwork\Broadcom adapter ŕProperties ŕToggle “Receive Side Scaling” to “Disabled” ŕOK and reboot if necessary.

    so far /fingerscrossed i've not had any drops and have watched a few youtube vids

    Can someone explain this in a way non-techies can understand?
