Wired connection drops out

My wired connection keeps dropping out for a few seconds, if I unplug the network cable & plug it back in it works again, network connection isn't lost just internet.

Strange thing is that wifi is working fine at the same time, I have been watching SkyGo on my iPad with no dropout but laptop (wired connection) drops out

Re: Wired connection drops out

If it is just the one machine dropping out I would try a new ethernet cable, as they can go bad. The locking levers snapping off is a common cause of ethernet connections becoming a bit dodgy
