Ran into network quality meter problems. Noticed that my LAN and other devices had been reset to green, low energy, etc. Just FYI.

Go to the device manager, open the network adapter's properties and go to the power management tab, Uncheck the power management options. This could solve your problems.

Yes, this is what I did.  I was surprised that a Windows 10 update apparently went in and changed the power management options.  Hope this brief post saves others a bit of time or puzzlement.

Thanks for pointing this out as the PM settings were on here also after some update. No matter since the system doesn't sleep and is powered 24/7

Thank You
