Hi Joe

Might be a network driver, BIOS, or a corrupt driver. You might want to update you BIOS, download a new network driver and install it, and run a system file check to verify and repair your system files

To run SFC type cmd in search>right click and run as admin>sfc /scannow

Let us know the results
