  1. So first sorry for my bad eng
    This problem started before 1-2 months
    when I play online games(sometimes this happen when I watch youtube in full screen) I can join to server and have 2-3 seconds to play - after that internet will disconnect
    If I press troubleshoot problems it say that ethernet cable is unplugged
    I can have back connection if I go to device manager then to my driver (Gigabit PCI express network adapter) > Advanced > speed and duplex and to change to any value or to network and sharing center > Change adapter settings > and then press disable and after that enable
    I tried almost everything that I founded on net: changing speed and duplex , changing ethernet cable , scan for malware/virus , unplugging power cord etc.
    I use wired connection , but my sister can connect to router(while I dont have connection)
    I dont play newer games , I play games like Tf2 , CoD4 etc.

    My ethernet card is TP-LINK TG-3468
    Router: TP-LINK TL-WR741ND
    Pls help I am gonna to throw Pc from terrace

    Have you tried your motherboard's built in ethernet port?

    Have you download the latest drivers for your ethernet card?

    I bought a card before about 50-60 days, other ethernet port is dead after a lightning strike (This problem is also happening on it)

    Yes I download latest drivers
