Microsoft today has rolled out new updates for Windows 10 versions 1803, 1709, 1703, and 1607. Among the slew of fixes included in the updates, Microsoft has also developed a new Group Policy setting that should help customers with PCs that have difficulty with network connections.

New setting…

Adds a new Group Policy setting called “Enable Windows to soft-disconnect a computer from a network”. This determines how Windows will disconnect a computer from a network when it determines that the computer should no longer be connected to the network.

  • If enabled, Windows will soft-disconnect (disconnection is not immediate or abrupt) a computer from a network.
  • If disabled, Windows disconnects a computer from a network immediately.
  • If not configured, the default behavior is soft-disconnect. For more information about soft-disconnect, see Understanding and configuring Windows Connection Manager.
