Windows 10 v1903 breaks network drivers, fixing them is not easy
With the Windows 10 May Update, there came a series of bugs and issues that are hard to digest for some. Microsoft is working on solving all of them, but in the meantime users are facing serious problems.
One user describes the problem as follows:
I’ve just updated my PC to the latest Windows update using the Update Assistant. It was working ok, but now my router says that Ethernet is not connected and I can’t browse the Internet anymore. Anyone else with that? (Realtek onboard)
This is not the only Realtek bug the update brings, but it’s one that remains unresolved. The other big Realtek issue that Microsoft acknowledged is with card readers that prevented the installation of the update.

Driver issues can break your Internet connection
To confirm that the problem is triggered by the update itself, and not just from your router, disabling and re-enabling it from the adapter options could do the trick.
If the router is fine, than the problem has much deeper roots and it’s most likely triggered by the Windows 10 v1903 code.
Go to Device Manager and update your drivers. If that doesn’t change anything, uninstall the old driver, go to the manufacturer’s website and download the latest Ethernet drivers and install them.
If you didn’t updated to v1903, be sure to read all the info available and find the known bugs and issues.
