Cool Solution
Hey folks

Confirming that this issue, currently being posted across multiple threads with varying descriptions is due to buggy driver/net settings for those with a Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller.

The resolve for this frustrating gremlin under your hood is to:
  1. Manually update your Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller driver direct from the manufacturer's website (auto update is not retrieving it).
  2. Purge any screw ups: Flush DNS & reset WINSOCK entries & TCP/IP stacks to defaults.

Step by step:
  1. Navigate to Realtek's official website and download the latest driver. Direct link here.
    Download an Auto Installation Program compatible with your OS to simplify deployment.
  2. Run the program.
  3. Click Start > Programs > Accessories > right-click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator". Type the following:
    ipconfig /flushdns
    [Press ENTER]
    netsh winsock reset catalog
    [Press ENTER]
    netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log
    [Press ENTER]
    netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log
    [Press ENTER]
  4. Restart your computer.

Hope everything runs smooth for ya. o7

Smile Finally!..
Hi everyone,

Just wanted to update my situation on this issue since the bug is gone now, i had a windows update a few days ago and after it was completed and my pc was rebooted, everything was working fine, i then remembered that the problems had started after a windows update several months ago. It's been 2 or 3 days now and i had no connection bugs anymore which makes me say; Finally!.. since there was no recent replies to this thread, i'm hoping it means that your issues were solved as well... alright so that's it for now, Take care all...
