    Wired internet connection not working on PC startup


    My problem is strange.
    Whenever I turn my PC on, with the ethernet cable plugged in always, the internet connection is limited.
    I can fix this by going into the properties of Internet Protocol Version 4 and entering an IP address and public DNS.
    It still doesnt work after this, however when I remove those custom settings I entered, the connection starts working.

    Can anyone help me with why the connection never works by default?
    Thanks

    Have you tried uninstalling it in program and features then with your Ethernet cable plugged in restart and see if windows finds it and reinstalls the drivers for it.
    Also have you gone into Device Manager and see if there are any yellow marks against it.
    Or run Trouble Shooter.
