    Unhappy Network disconnects since updating to Windows 10

    About a week ago I updated from Win 7 to Win 10. Since then, my computer has been randomly disconnecting from the internet and my network. I can usually work for an hour or two before it happens. The only way to recover is to restart. I did a web search and found hundreds of suggestions, none of which worked. I've tried various network adapter settings and even replaced the network card with one which specifically stated that it was Win 10 compatible. I've tried a keep-alive to ping the router continually. Still, I can't get it to stay online. I really like Win 10 but unless I find a solution this weekend, I'm going to roll it back to Win 7.


    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Are you using HomeGroup or Windows networking?
    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!

    Have you unchecked "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" under Under "Local Area Connection Properties"?

    Just as a follow-up, I bought a new hard drive and installed Win 10 from scratch. Everything is working great. None of the problems I had with the upgrade.
