    Ethernet Problems


    I have installed Windows10 Education I am having internet problems. When I start the computer the internet connection works just fine it mostly goes down after like 15-20 minutes. When I troubleshoot it the message "local area connection doesn't have a valid IP configuration" appears.

    However when I restart the computer the connection works fine again for approximately 15-20 minutes. This does not seem to be an ISP or router problem as I have tested the computer on two completely different networks and the connection still goes down after a while.

    I have already tried the "ipconfig/release, renew command" nothing happens. I have also updated the drivers and I am currently using the latest driver. Any tips or help would be appreciated.

    Device: Qualcomm Atheros AR8171/8175 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet.
