Are you connecting through a wired connection?

I had an issue with with a newly built computer, where my wired connection would not to connect to anything above half duplex at 10mbps.

The remedy for my computer was to turn it off and leave it there for 30 mins. This solution was reached after doing multiple driver updates.

Hi,  it is a custom built Cybertron.  When I have a connection the speed and response are fine.  Then, at random I lose the connection.  When I simply restart the PC it reconnects and the connection is fine for a random period of time.  Also, the problem is not limited to any one function.  For example, It can happen when I am using Edge, Firefox, Email and so on.

Similar thing happened to me. Try leaving it offline for a while to see if it naturally fixes itself.

Did you update your network drivers recently?

Was this a recent occurrence or has this been happened since it was built?

Are you connecting via ethernet cable or wifi?

Will my email signature work in Office 365?

You've built an email signature using raw HTML code in Office 365, but you can't review how it looks with Transport Rules. So you have to test it over and over again before it can be used. Isn't this a bit of a waste of your time? Wouldn't a WYSIWYG editor make it a lot easier?

Hi,  It is a wired connection.  It only started after I updated to WIN 10.  As far as I can tell all drivers are up to date.

In my scenario, I had the same issues and I powered down my computer fully, then I did not touch it until an hour later. I have not had any subsequent issues since. This was over 6 months ago.

Hi,  Sounds like it could work.  However, I am an old guy so I still shut down the PC completely when I go to bed.  So, it is off for an extended period every day.

I would check the model of network card in your computer and download the windows 10 version. You can also check the power settings, windows ten may have enable a power setting that causes the network card to turn off to conserve power.
