Question Ethernet connection problems - Please help!

May 26, 2020
Hi everyone. I recently decided to get my new PC hooked up to ethernet. I plugged it into the port and it worked at first, but after I changed some settings, it refused to show up. It would not show Ethernet in the connectiond tab. For those of you wondering, this is the guide I followed for better latency.


( If somone is going to roast me for it being Fortnite related, I don't play fortnite, I just found this as a guide )

The timestamp for the settings I changed is 4:47 and it shows how to get into the settings at 4:07

I'm not sure if it was just that the connection quit before this, and I hadn't realized (a problem with my router) or that these settings could have screwed something up. I'm fairly sure that even if I did do something wrong, it wouldn't kick me off the Ethernet altogether, rather just have problems with getting a actual connection. Could my cable be messing something up? Are the settings that the guy recommends (some of them I didn't have so I didn't have, and there were also ones that he had and I didn't, so I just decided to leave those alone) harming my connection? If the settings are wrong, there is no way I can revert them, as the ethernet doesn't show up anymore. I'm no expert in internet connections, so I apologize if I'm missing something obvious.

Thank you and have a good day!

My guess is that you messed up your settings. If you can get back into them, set it to default and then don't mess with them.
