Question Ethernet/wifi disconnects at random


Oct 6, 2021
I've had the issue for a while and I'm at a loss for what could be causing it.
It disconnects more when I'm playing a game but it does it when I'm just browsing the internet aswell but not nearly as much.
When I get disconnected It's back within a minute or so, just enough time to be a problem.
It's the same issue on both ethernet and wifi, no lag spikes before the disconnect

Welcome to the forums, newcomer!

Make and model of your router/modem that you're tethered to? As for your build, what version(not edition) of Windows 10 are you on? Which BIOS version are you for your motherboard? Make and model of your PSU and it's age?
