    I did Windows 10 upgrade in August 2015 and everything seemed to be working fine with my internet connection

    After a recent "Windows Update" (at end of november) I was noticing that right after bootup my wired ethernet connection was fine, but after about an hour or so I noticed that I would lose internet connectivity.

    Then I noticed that when i do ipconfig /all the "Lease Expires" property was set for an hour after last bootup.

    I don't know that much about network configuration, but after googling around a bit, I wanted to try to do ipconfig/release and ipconfig/renew to see if I could get that time to change. When i run either of those commands I get an error "The RPC server is unavailable"

    I've checked in the Svcs.msc that "Remote Procedure Call" service is running.

    Am I barking up the wrong tree? Is there something else I should be checking?

    It's really annoying to have to reboot every hour to get my internet connectivity back!

    thanks for any suggestions

    What do you see exactly in the Event Log? Might give more insight as to what is failing.

    hmmph. "Event Log service is unavailable" When I check services, I don't even see any service to start. Sorry to be such a 'noob'

    ok, got the eventLog now.

    there is error about Microsoft.Xbox "This app does not support the contract specified or is not installed. See Microsoft-windows-TWinUI/Operational log for additional information."

    (I don't have an XBox. Is this a "windows10" app?)

    Xbox is an app. In the Event Viewer tool you can look under the folders for that referenced TWinUI log and see more detailed logs there.

    Check that the "RPC Endpoint Mapper" service is running and set to automatic.

    Also may want to look at manually installing the latest driver for your Ethernet adapter. If you have any third-party Internet Security Suites, try disabling it and see if that changes anything.

    If none of that fixes it, can you post a screenshot your local area status dialog box & properties.
