No internet connection on boot-up

    No internet connection on boot-up


    When I know that I won't be using my PC any time soon I turn it off. However, when I got to turn it back on I notice that I don't have an internet connection.

    Yes I did:
    • Check my other (wired) PCs and they were fine
    • Check that my ethernet cable is plugged in - I also unplugged and plugged it back in (no difference)
    • Log in and try to load up Google in case the connection was there, but the indicator was lagging or whatever (no difference)
    • Try to do a ipconfig /renew (no difference)


    In the end, what worked was for me to restart my computer and the connection would magically be there.

    But the thing is, this has been happening to me every single morning for the past two weeks. Sure I could leave my PC on, but I did not always have this issue and leaving it on won't really fix it ...

    Has anyone come across this issue before?
    P.S. I am using Windows 8.1 Pro Preview

    tl;dr
    Internets not found when PC turned on.
    Reboot PC fixes problem.
    Need solution.
    Thank you.

    Thanks for your reply chev, but unfortunately, installing the LAN drivers did not fix it.

    If you are still using the preview version "full of bugs" you will need to update to the RTM final version of 8.1.
