i am pretty sure its windows 10 and not a driver issue. issue is the all the internet connections overload the network buffer on the software side of windows 10 and stops all traffic and causes windows to freeze and reboot.

I have the short term fix, clear the buffer via console and reboot. i made a .bat file to do once in a while. :)

for a long term fix, is there going to be a windows 10 patch coming to fix it? :confused:

Can you explain what you mean by internet connections overloading the network buffers?

I'm wondering if this is related to an issue I experienced yesterday when I tried to download some torrents. Never had an issue with this laptop until I installed bittorrent and tried to grab a few files, about 10 gigs worth. Laptop started locking up and rebooting every 5-10 minutes. Stopped rebooting once I paused the torrents and closed the program. What do you guys think?

Edit: Just checked the dump file, says "probably caused by bcmw163a.sys"...which happens to be the broadcom network adapter driver.

What is this command to clear the buffer?

netsh winsock reset

script i use in a bat is

@echo off
pause
netsh winsock reset
pause
shutdown -s -t 5 -c "shutting down"

same here, downloading torrents. downloading games all over again and leaving my computer on over night.

after a few days just from a fresh install of windows 10 and downloading my game, fallout4. i'd wake up with my computer restarted. at first i thought it was someone in the household restarting it. after a few nights past, i was slowly testing it. like cold boot, left on for days. then what really set me off, my streams to my bedroom would just stop. i'd get up and run to the computer and it was restarted.

from this point i started googling windows 10 freezing and found the above fix. like a day later i also my torrents wouldn't start. looked up the command line and created the script above in a bat file.

i still get torrents not starting sometimes, but if i run that bat file before i leave for work i never have to deal with the issue much. its still annoying as hell.

Can you post what errors you get in the Windows event logs when this happens? I myself am actually very disturbed that Microsoft locked down the netsh changes that I discovered and referenced in the above thread. I am speculating that it is indeed what is causing your issue, although it could be network driver related also.

no longer getting the 131 error.

says
event id 200, 201, 202. yellow warning.
A connection to the Windows Update service could not be established.

Did you recently use any of the scripts widely available on the interwebz to try and curb the Windows 10 telemetry (spying)?

Haven't had any issues with bittorrent on Windows 10 and Intel NICs so it helps to report what NIC you're using. Have intentionally used Intel only because I've had issues with Broadcom, Realtek, etc.
