    My tower computer will off and on connect to the ethernet cable on its own will. When i initially hooked it up to the cable it was connected, but a week or so later it disconnected and went to wifi, and after that it continued an off and on cycle from ethernet to wifi but now it wont connect to ethernet at all. I checked my device manager and nothing has a symbol next to it. It is a iBUYPOWER - REVOLT with intel core i3-4150 cpu @ 3.50Hz, 8G RAM, 64 bit operating system, please help, the wifi is unbearable slow for when i want to watch livestreams.
