Hello,
Never thought I'd have to post something like this. So here's the problem I'm having, I finished my custom PC and got it running but once I connected the ethernet cable, I get no access to the internet. I've tried everything including a re-install of windows 10 and was only able to connect to the internet for about 3 minutes before I lost connection. Ive been in contact with Microsoft support (that recommended the re-install and then says it's my ISP problem) to contacting ATT that had me reset my router and then say it's a Windows 10 fault.

I get a variety of error messages ranging from unidentified network, ethernet 2 cannot find an IP address, default gateway not available, no internet access

Pace router model 5286AC FXN
MSI Z270 Xpower Gaming Titanium
Corsair HX750i PSU
Windows 10 OS
ATT ISP
4 smartphones, 1 laptop, 1 XBOX 1S, and desktop PC connected

If you need any more information let me know.


EDIT POSSIBLE FIX
Ok, so I might've fixed the issue but I'm gonna let it settle for a bit and see if I keep connection. The only thing I did was switch router cables around. The cable connected to my PC was in slot 4, I moved it to slot 2 and it connected in seconds. Hopefully this will help others.
