    Unreliable Internet on Ethernet on SELECT Computers


    Title says it all.
    When I troubleshoot, it says Default Gateway not Available.
    I'm getting the 169.x.x.x IP address...
    I have 2 computers operating, one that isn't.
    Wireless works perfectly.
    One is Windows Server 2012, does not work.
    One is Windows 8, does not work.
    And another Windows 8 which does work.
    And I have 2 iPad's that work perfectly.
    Already tried the netsh resets, and all the software fixes.
    I've also replaced my modem and Ethernet cards.
    In the process of getting a router, got one that was DOA.
    Trying a powerful router, the RT-AC66U.

    On the server, the internet works for about half the day, and the other half, it doesn't work.

    I'm also running the Asus AC66U, no idea why the internet would work for half a day but have you tried starting up in safe mode with networking to determine if the problem is from an installed program or anti virus software.
