Ethernet connection drops after awhile

    Im having issues with the Ethernet connection. It stops after awhile and then I cannot ping it or do anything until I move the mouse or press Enter.
    The strange thing is I set the power settings not to never go to sleep, yet it still behaves as if it goes to sleep, at least according to the network connection.
    As for the network adapter, I did not find Power Management tag setting like in Win7.
    Has anyone had issues with that?

    I'm getting the same thing while streaming. And when i check to see where the drop is, turns out to be Ethernet pausing for some strange reason.

    I'm having the same issue - Ethernet disconnect after a while and I need to troubleshoot it and then I have internet access for a while then disconnect again and I have to troubleshoot again...

    Same problem here.
    Ethernet discontent after a while
    The only thing that fix it is a restart or disable and enable

    You need to get into UEFI. To do it, You could use this video manual.

    On the first screen You could see section "Project Version". That's what we need to know. For example, at this picture bios is CHTOA 0.90.

    Or You could use AIDA64 application. Like this:
