Hello Geeks,

I'm having issues with my PC. I recently upgraded my internet connection, and since then my PC has been acting weird. There are two issues: the main one is when I wake my PC from sleep mode, I get a big red X on the Network icon on the taskbar. I have an ASRock 870 extreme3 mobo with up-to-date ethernet drivers. The second issue (though this is the wrong forum for this problem) is when I get the issue of my motherboard not recognizing there is an ethernet plugged my computer does not want to shut down. I'm only having issues shutting my PC down when I get the network errors, so I'm thinking these are somehow related.

Anyone have any suggestions on common things that might be causing this that I can look for?

Oh, I should probably add that the modem is an Actiontec Q1000 through CenturyLink.

I figured it out with some more digging. My PC was on ASRock's power saver setting for some reason. On that setting it was turning off my LAN controller to save power, which is why it wouldn't turn on after I woke it up.
