    Hello,

    I bought some PCIe NIC for my PC, since I have separated networks here. Problem is that Windows disconnect the 'plug' from the NIC and therefore the network setting says 'Network cable unplugged'. Problem won't disappear when I reconnect the plug.

    Things I have tested:
    • Removed/Installed drivers
    • Changed PCIe slot

    It worked fine before November Update aka Build 10586.11, after some weeks of doing the same as I described in that list above.

    Any ideas on how to fix that?

    PS: After a reboot it works fine for some minutes

    Don't you think your network cable is broken or not stable at point of connection to the NIC? Check the port and cable for anomalies, etc.
