Hello,

I am having an almost identical problem to the one that PanickyD was having a couple years ago (link here) but with a few differences. First, I am running W10 on a slightly modified (more ram and better graphics card) HP Envy series, am running VMware (w7, w10, and server 2012 machines), and my problem can temporarily be fixed by resetting the modem and switch, but the problem resurfaces within a day (which is the strangest thing about my problem). Currently I am using an Ethernet connection to a modem that converts co-ax signal to Ethernet. The problem is isolated to my computer only, and resetting the adapters/drivers doesn't do anything. Since I would prefer to not reset my modem every time this happens, I am looking for a more permanent fix that doesn't involve nuking the computer (like PanickyD had to). I tried most of the proposed solutions that were posted on his forum but to similar success that he had. I am not in any networking profession, but I am currently taking networking classes at a college so I will understand some more principles than a standard person might, so please don't hold back the techno-babble :). Thanks in advance for your help!

Some extra information that may be of use: I did have the server 2012 vm acting as a dns server and had dhcp services enabled for the other two virtual machines, but this was configured on a different network and machine (backed up the vm's from that machine and ran it on this one). Could be a cause, since the problem started not long after I moved it onto my machine. I did do some vm related troubleshooting, and I disabled the dns and dhcp services, but with no result.

Lets start with a post of the results of a ipconfig /all via a command prompt for review.

 

When you say "reset" the modem you just power it down and back up again, right?

Reset the switch, so I have ethernet again. Looking at the ipconfig results when it is working and there seems to be nothing wrong.

Once my ethernet stops working again I'll copy/paste those results into notepad and reset the switch so I can post it (to replace the poor quality pictures).

All looks good except I can't reach those North Carolina dns servers.  Could be due to the flooding/storm.

Would be nice to see the difference when you lose internet.  Does sounds like you are having a modem/router or ISP issue if rebooting is getting things live again.

So it's been a couple days, Ethernet is still working and I'm about to go on vacation for the weekend. When I come back it might not be working though. Either way I won't be updating or checking this thread until Monday or so. I'll let you know if anything changes tomorrow before I leave.

Sorry for the long delay, just got back from vacation. Ethernet is still working and hasn't crashed yet after a full day of use. I believe that my problem had to do with dhcp and dns service issues between VMware and windows since after I uninstalled my VMs and started fresh it hasn't crashed (as I mentioned previously, I had a Win Server 2012 VM running with DHCP and DNS services enabled). I hope that the problem never returns, but if it does I will go back here and paste the ipconfig results. It may come back once I re-enable the services, but it may have just been a result of me not correctly setting it up between the server and VMware. Either way, thanks for the support and I will definitely be coming back to this thread if the problem comes back.
