Windows 10 Ethernet Issue
« on: April 17, 2016, 03:07:20 PM »
Hello all,

It has been a while but I have singed your praises to everyone I know since I last posted on here and purchased the pro edition.

I am having issue with Windows 10 and my Intel 82579v Gigabit Ethernet connection.

Windows 10 is saying the Ethernet is disconnected. However, if I disable my wifi adapter I have an Internet connection via Ethernet. Also, if I go to status it says ipv4 and IPv6 is disconnected but bytes are coming and out. When I run a speed test on the just the Ethernet I am getting 65mbs dl and 5mbps ul.

This would not bother me other than the fact that Windows applications think the Ethernet is disconnected and I cannot use the Xbox app and sometimes I cannot get Windows updates.

I have updated to the latest driver.

I have searched multiple forums and Google with no solution.

If anyone out there can help please help!

Thanks again,

Offline Boggin

I don't know if it is the same in Win 10 as it is in Win 8.1 but when the Ethernet is connected, that auto disables wireless.

With Ethernet connected can you still connect with WiFi ?

Try these cmds from a Command Prompt (Admin) -

netsh winsock reset

netsh int ipv4 reset resetlog.txt

netsh int ipv6 reset resetlog.txt

ipconfig /release

ipconfig /renew


Then reboot to effect - the winsock cmd is more of a belt and braces.

Run those cmds with Ethernet connected otherwise it won't be able to renew the Ethernet IP address.

If those don't resolve then enter dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

followed by sfc /scannow to confirm if any corruption has been found/fixed.

The /restorehealth cmd can appear to hang at 20% but will complete.
