Very Strange Internet Connection Issue - Need Help

Very Strange Internet Connection Issue - Need Help

Hello All,

 

I am having a weird issue. Upon a device startup/wakeup/restart, my internet connection goes into deep left field. I can't even open google. However, I noticed that after I disable my Ethernet Driver and then re-enable it, it worls perfectly. This occurs every time. I haven't had a single instance where this hasn't occured.

 

I did a ping test before I restarted my ethernet driver. The results are below:

 

Ping statistics for Comcast.net:
    Packets: Sent = 56, Received = 31, Lost = 25 (44% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 26ms, Maximum = 28ms, Average = 27ms

 

I then did a ping test after the restart. I shortened the time of this test because it hadn't timed out after 16 attempts. Those results are below:

 

Ping statistics for Comcast.net:
    Packets: Sent = 16, Received = 16, Lost = 0 (0% loss),
Approximate round trip times in milli-seconds:
    Minimum = 26ms, Maximum = 32ms, Average = 27ms

 

This is not "life threatening" as all I need to do is restart my ethernet device, but it's becoming a pain as this is the issue with any device connected (via wireless or wired).

 

Can someone assist?

Sounds like the NIC card is going into sleep mode and not waking up until you disable/enable it...   Look into the properties of the card, and disable the computer managing the sleep mode of the card....
