Hi all,

each and every day I have to reset the winsock (netsh winsock reset) and reboot the system in order to get my Internet back. I have Windows 10, the latest NIC driver and latest BIOS, but still: it keeps happening. I notice that at a certain point, i.e. working in Outlook, my connection just dies and the winsock reset is the only solution. How to permanently resolve this?
