Ethernet adapter malfunction on startup

Recently my ethernet adapter has been malfunctioning on startup (no other time). If I go into my device manager and "Scan for Hardware Changes" it fixes the problem. Sometimes it works fine on startup, but mostly it malfunctions. Any insights?

  1. How about finding which chip you have for Ethernet and find proper driver for it from it's manufacturer's site ?
  2. Yeah, I double checked that the driver was updated. The only thing I haven’t done is wipe and reinstall for fear of wrecking it
