Yesterday my computer automatically installed the anniversary update.

 

The problem after the update is that my internet connection stops after a while. If I restart the computer it will work for a few minutes but after that it will die again.

 

I tried updating my Wifi adapter drivers, reseting the TCP/IP stack to no avail.

 

But here's the weird part: It can still download torrents at full speed. But otherwise I have no internet connection.

 

Any ideas?

 Getting DNS errors by chance ?

 

 I had something similar before and flushing dns solved my problem.

Thanks for the replies!

 

I tried ipconfig /flushdns. Nothing changed

 

I also switched to an ethernet cable instead of Wifi. The problem persists.

 

I ran the Network Troubleshooter. It came back with " Your computer appears to be correctly configured but the device or resource (www.microsoft.com) is not responding"

 

The internet connection works well for a couple of minutes after restart, but then when I am trying to visit a website, the browser reports that the connection has timed out.

 

If I keep reloading then eventually the website will load, but this won't last more than a minute. So the internet connection isn't totally dead.

 

But the crazy part as I mentioned before is that torrents keep working the whole time. I also tried with Steam downloads and they work too. It seems that only web browsing is affected.

 

 

 

I just installed new Ethernet drivers. It's a Marvell Yukon 88E8056 adapter. Worked for a few minutes, but same problem again.

 

I don't think it is a driver issue. Whatever it is, it is driving me nuts. I'm this close from reverting the Anniversary update.

You can install driver for previous version of Windows OS like Windows 7, 8 or Windows 8.1 maybe Windows 10 version of the driver is buggy. When installing the driver for your network card uninstall the currently install driver first. Even do you said you have reset the TCP/IP suite lets make sure TCP/IP suite has been resetted correctly. Use my batch script to reset TCP/IP protocol suite, download link is below.

Do you have another computer you could try the wifi adapter with to determine if the problem is with the wifi adapter?

Thanks everyone! I got fed up and reverted the anniversary update. Now everything works fine again.

 

 

Thanks FreeBooter for the .bat file. Unfortunately, by the time I saw your reply, I had already reverted my computer back to the previous build, so I hadn't the chance to test it. I saved it though for later because it seems really useful.

 

 

@dc3:

 

I tried three different adapters, all with different chipsets (Railink, Atheros and Realtek). All three are tested and working on other computers. Still, they exhibited exactly the same problem on this particular computer. I am quite confident by now that the problem is not due to a bad adapter or incorrect drivers.
