I’m having a strange issue when running Microsoft Teams, and turning on video from a USB Webcam. When I do that, the USB Ethernet adapter dies (no more traffic in or out) and the Wi-Fi starts to have problems. I have to reboot to get the ethernet adapter working again.
This happened on both Windows 10 and 11. I’ve used two different USB docs (one USB-C and one USB-A) that provide Ethernet. I’ve updated drivers, reinstalled Microsoft Teams, updated the BIOS. It just seems to persist. I can use the webcam in other applications, like Slack, but Microsoft Teams just kills it.
It’s livable, to be honest, as I now have a legitimate excuse to not turn my camera on during company meetings. But I would like to solve the mystery somehow.
