my realtek PCie GBe family controller constantly fails

Every now and then, when I turn on the PC, I realize that it is not connected via Ethernet cable, but instead on WIFI (but when eternet cable is indeed connected and there's nothing wrong with router or internet).

What usually solves the problem is by uninstalling the Realtek PCie GBe family controller (even though it doesn't have the yellow exclamation point) in device manager, and then "scan for hardware changes".

But this is getting really annoying since I will have to repeat this every now and then even though there's absolutely no update with the driver.

Can anyone tell me why is this happening and how to stop it from happening? Thanks!

    If it were mine and a driver wasn't available, I would probably but a pcie ethernet adapter and disable the onboard.
