    USB 3.0 Ethernet access problem

    Experienced user but not power.
    I have just upgraded to WIN 10 and have problems accessing net.
    My mother board Ethernet port is dust. Have been using a USB 3.0 ASIX AX88179 Ethernet adapter.
    Worked fine in WIN 7. In WIN 10 I lose the connection and have to reset the network adapter about every 2 - 3 min.
    Have removed the ASIX in device mgr. did not fix.
    Have searched for other network connections but cannot find one. Also can't find out how to delete the present one to set it up again.
    Can anyone give me a pointer for where to look or what to do?
