Hello I have been having an issue with my desktop computer in which after some time of use my system loses network connectivity and suddenly stops receiving packets normally until I lose connectivity altogether and the taskbar icon pops up saying that a local network cable has been unplugged. I initially thought this to be a malware/system infection issue which I still think it might be but it's been cleared in another thread with all the other information about my issue and what has been done.

That thread is here

Do you use a router?

Also what makes you think that the packets are being dropped are you using Wireshark or another Protocol Analyzer?

No I have a hardline in my room that's a part of a university network. And I know that I'm losing incoming packets because I've stared at the local area network status window and saw the numbers stop and then get disconnected afterwards.

I would contact your schools IT Department, and on your machine I would replace the cable and see if that fixes if it does not then I would think about getting another network card.
