Alienware Area 51 (2009), windows 10, Network connection issue

I updated my 2009 Alienware area 51 (2009)  from windows 7 to 10 without any problems except for the network driver problem.  My internet connection keeps getting cut on the pc making me reconnect and re-plug in the Ethernet cord.  I have tried to reinstall the drivers (Remove and replace), updated router and tried a direct connection to modem, replaced cord.

 Is there anything i can do to try and fix this issue?

Hello I had the same problem, but i needed to open a cmd or tiping ipconfig /flushdns to make the card again working..


now i have for 2 weeks a stable card after I installed from broadcom the newest driver (version 15.6.10)

I see now they have again a newer version vor the 57xx   network card 08/14/15

have fun with your Win10 and Im sure you're card will be fine after the driver update Smiley Wink
