Hello, I've been having problems with my internet connection. Time to time it won't turn back on until I reset my laptop but it's been coming back ever hour or so.

Strangely enough it doesn't affect my other devices, only my laptop.

I did some research online and I did some troubleshooting and my problem comes down to this: Ethernet doesn't have a valid ip configuration and the default gateway is not available.

I tried some solutions like this:

I tried to manually insert the IP address through the ethernet properties.

I tried to ipconfig release and ipconfig /renew but this comes up:

No operation can be performed on Local Area Connection* 11 while it has its media disconnected.
An error occurred while releasing interface Wi-Fi : An address has not yet been associated with the network endpoint.
An error occurred while releasing interface Ethernet : An address has not yet been associated with the network endpoint.


I'm using a Qualcomm Aetheros for my ethernet.

Any help will be appreciated.
