No connection through ethernet cable

Today I put my GPU one slot higher, after restarting I didn't have any connection through cable. I tried updating my drivers, deleting the drivers and reinstalling them. It recognizes the cable very rarely and when it's connected and I do something, litteraly anything, it'll disconnect. I had one solution where I had to change the speed and duplex settings to a limited 10Mbps. That's the only time it will fully work and keeps working. It used to work fine with a speed of 500Mbps before I switched my GPU.

This is probably a bandwidth issue.

The slot you have moved your graphics card to is probably sharing bandwidth with the ethernet port. As GPUs are bandwidth hungry then its probably hogging all the bandwidth on that channel and robbing nearly all the bandwidth from your ethernet port.

It is not possible to confirm this without a look at your motherboard.

I switched my gpu back again and that indeed seemed to be the issue. Thanks!
