I would get a new Cat 5 ethernet cable first as well as check to see that the PC is turning off the ethernet port or doing a power saving shut off. Look at Device manager, for the NIC and make sure Power Management is not checked to "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power"
You should have all green bars with that direct connection always for sure.  GL

I have also seen bad NIC cards in the PC.   A NIC card only costs like $25 I would get another one if the above tests do not help.
