..which interrupt saves & file transfers, temporarily freeze programs which access network files.
This is the only machine on our network which is experiencing this issue.
Here are two short clips showing the issue I'm describing as "micro disconnects" because I don't know what else to call it. The network system tray icon never even goes into an unconnected / no internet access state, and pings to a network computer which hosts one of these folders show no obvious signs of dropping packets.
clip 1  (happens in first 20 seconds, then I'm scrolling through event viewer trying to find an entry.  Nothing relevant I can find)
clip 2 (happens in the first 20 seconds, I don't see any dropped pings or extreme latency, the folder I had open to a local hard drive stayed open so it wasn't a windows explorer crash)
I have relocated the machine between to various other working ethernet ports & changed the ethernet cable. Installed an addon PCI express gigabit ethernet card, and attempted to connect only via wifi. Issue still persists.
I have swapped a different windows 10 installed harddrive into the computer, updated all drivers and repeated the above tests, issue still persists.
Any ideas for further testing, or possible culprits are greatly appreciated.
