Hi there,

I'd try a System Restore first see if it helps, restore it to a point when all is well.
If System Restore didn't help, try disabling the Power Management mode of the problematic ethernet adapter from Device Manager (see attached image) Is this a Wi-Fi issue?

Updating the ethernet driver might help.

Is your issue wired or wireless connected to your Wi-Fi network?

this is a wireless issue, I got it running now, but when I turn my computer on tomorrow it will all of a sudden not work again and then I will have to reset the modem and I also have the same issue on my cell phone when I am at school or somewhere else it connects just fine, but when I get home it will stay disconnected our desktop and other laptop is not having any issues
