Windows 10: Internet connection dropping

    Internet connection dropping


    Hi,

    Since I upgraded to Windows 10, my internection drops out every time that my laptop is not in continual use. The connection actually says: "connect automatically" but it still goes off every time I leave my laptop for longer than 10 minutes or so. This is frustrating, as I need to be in contact via Skype all the time.

    Is there a reason for this?

    I have a similar issue in that the connections goes dead randomly for just a few seconds and then re-starts. I think there was another thread that states MS was aware of the issue.

    You may want to check that the computer is not putting the Network Adapter to sleep:

    Use the following steps to open Device Manager:

    1. Type Control Panel in the search box.
    2. Click Control Panel.
    3. Click Device Manager.

      Right-click the network adapter(that keeps getting turned off), and select Properties.

      Go to the Power Management Tab>
      uncheck the option that says “Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power”, and press OK.

    I had already tried this and it did not work. I did find an updated driver for my adapter (Realtek) and so far no more problems. Thanks for the suggestion!

    Okay, after installing the updated Realtek driver yesterday and re-booting, the intermittent loss of connectivity problem has gone away. However, I'll keep an eye out to see if it keeps working...gotta love Win 10!
