Orbi- desktop hardwire internet connectivity

My desktop is hard wired to the Orbi router. When I wake up the desktop most times the internet isn't working on the desktop. The wifi on other devices( iPhones, iPads, apple Tv, laptop etc) are fine at that moment. I have to disable the Ethernet adapter on the desktop and re-enable it to get internet connection. Has anyone else noticed this?
TIA.

Mac or PC?  Many Mac's are notorious for being too aggressive with power down states and the adapter needs a nudge to wake back up - you can tell it to never sleep to overcome this.  On PC's, you can also manage the sleep settings of the device to see if it helps.

It's a PC. I'll play around with the sleep settings to check if issue gets resolved. Thanks.

Also be sure to review the adapter specific settings.
