So if I'm streaming through a screen share program, or through a video through a twitch/discord., My wired ethernet disconnects.
Example, I was screen sharing a youtube video, and it would randomly disconnect me from the ethernet or if I wanted to skip parts of the youtube video
it would buffer then disconnect my ethernet completely. However, if I wasn't on a meeting or a call. It would stream fine, and no buffering. What can I do? I have Gigabit connection.

Oh I've looked online and exhausted most of these solutions already, I do not have a power saving option on my LAN properties, but I do have it on for battery usage even though I use a Desktop. I put both options on sleep never. I also went into REGedit and change the binaries so it would let the system know to never sleep. Both IVP4 and 6 Are not on static. I uninstalled my LAN card and restarted computer. Updated my drivers card, but it was already up to date.
