Is your Windows 10, 8 PC falling off the 'net?

Is your Windows 10, 8 PC falling off the 'net? Microsoft doesn't care • The Register: Embarrassed Redmond keeps mum on how it managed to break DHCP

Perhaps it is just a coincidence but one client was not able to connect to the internet. Shutting down their computer and modem didn't fix the problem, but then later selecting Restart fixed the issue they'd had for a few days. Perhaps it was this problem which Microsoft appears to have caused with an update. If you're having troubles connecting to the internet keep this issue in mind.
