NIC disconnecting from network after a couple days on Server 2012 Standard R2

I have a Server 2012 Standard R2 Dell T610 Server that is brand new that has 2 on board NICs.  THe server will stay connected to the network for a couple days (2-3) and then will disconnect.  The connection always shows as an X as if it is not physically connected to the switch.  I can disable and enable the interface (either one) and it immediately connects back to the network.  I have even installed a PCIe Gigabit NIC which has yielded the same symptoms.  I have to believe it is an issue with Windows; however, I have never seen this behavior before.  Any help is greatly appreciated!

check your power settings disable hybrid sleep and sleep after to "never"

Right click on your NIC icon then properties and then click configure and then advanced. You need to adjust and check the settings
