I leave my laptop on over night. After about two days my network connection will stop responding and I am connected to the network Via Ethernet. However I have to restart my laptop for the connection to become active again. I have went in and disabled the adapter and reenabled it. Also I have switch over to Wireless with the same issue. Any one have any Ideas?

Make sure windows is up to date also, when you've finished with your laptop instead of leaving it on, you could turn it off :)

 

1) Is it an old laptop?

2) When did this start happening?

3) Does it only happen once it has been left Idle for prolonged periods of time?

4) Where do you leave it overnight (On a desk, on a sofa etc...)?

The Laptop is a brand new Latitude 3570. It started like a month ago. I normally happends overnight, however I monitor systems with it so there is always an active connection in a browser. I leave it on a desk connected to a docking station. Normally I will come in the morning and will have to restart it time to time. I could turn it off but with windows 10 sometimes takes forever to boot.

So is it the browser freezing, or do you lose internet connectivity?

Please download and install Farbar Service Scanner.  The download will begin immediately after clicking on the link.
 
When FSS opens you will see an image like the one below.

Place checks in all of the boxes and then click on Scan
 
When the Scan is complete a log similar to the one below will open.  Copy and then paste this in your topic.
