    Update driver, check for malware. Sounds like stange behavior to me.. Is this an integrated adapter (built in to the motherboard)? If it is you can disable it in the BIOS and install an additional network card. Cheap probably around $15 online.

    Is network card disable when u are working? Sometimes it will be issue related to virus, Or Update ur network card driver or re-install drivers,

    Now run regedit and navigate to the following key >>


    Do a "Find" for the driver name for your card.

    In the right pane where this is found you will see a "start" type -- this is "manual" by default (at least it is for mine).

    Try either setting it to "automatic", or "boot".

    Change Value data to the wanted state:
    0 = Boot
    1 = System
    2 = Automatic
    3 = Manual
    4 = Disabled
