My PC is connected to the internet via ethernet over the mains with one of those homeplug adapters. 


When the internet is working, it works fine - zero issues. However it seems to cut out - randomly - for anywhere between 1-5 minutes.


  • A similar (if not same) problem happened at my old house.
  • No other devices in the house drop.
  • Normal debugging reveals no problems.

Any ideas? 


Is there any sort of program I could run in the background, so that when my internet drops... I can narrow down the cause? 


I am pretty lost here,
