    Internet randomly stops working on PC (works fine on other devices)


    So it just happens 100% random out of no where and I get this error:

    so I found TWO temporary fixes.

    One: unplug router / modem for 10 sec and replug

    Two: Go to the network settings and disable the ethernet (note I am connected via ethernet cable, 100% wired)

    disable it

    Enable it BUT i have to enable it about 30 times before it enables.

    When it's enabling, it doesn't enable, it shows the message that it's enabling and I refresh the background and it's still disabled. I have to keep enabling until it randomly works (if anyone knows why I have to keep enabling it 30 times for it to actually enable please let me know)


    why does my internet randomly stop on my PC? it works fine on other devices while its not working on my PC and it takes forever to enable the ethernet after i disable it.

    First off, can you update your system specs with all available info, please? This will go a long way to helping us help you.

    System Specs - Fill in at Ten Forums

    Second, have you tried updating the drivers for your ethernet hardware?

    IMHO, this sounds like a hardware issue. Of course, try updating the drivers first, this may help fix the issue.

    Other things that may help is taking care of any system file corruption.

    Start off by opening a admin command prompt and typing: sfc /scannow. If you have system files that are corrupted, this should fix it.

    After that, type: dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth. This will fix any component store corruption.

    Then, type: chkdsk C: /scan. If this comes up with errors, type: chkdsk C: /F /R. IT will ask to schedule the scan for the next restart. Say yes, then restart and let it do the scan.

    There are a multitude of issues that can be fixed by these three simple steps.

    Make sure the device you are using isn't set to turn off device to save power.

    In your pic you have 2 Ethernet internet devices. Ethernet 2 looks like it is your device you use to connect to the internet with.
    Under Network Adapters, right click Ethernet 1 and choose to Disable it. See how that works.
