I remember there was bytes/packets sent/received since connection established in the past but I cannot find it in the adapter properties now.

BTW, when I hover over the network connection icon in the tray, it displays Network: Internet access, Unindentified network, No network access, yet, you see I have posted this question anyway.

David figured the screen I was looking. The problem was that status was not available in my case (for some bug in my Windows session).

  • So the real question should be: Why is status greyed out?

  • @nixda I have created the question to ask how to open up the status dialog. I was asking for the path to that dialog. It is answered now.

How do I see the network adapter statistics in Windows 7 / 8 / 10?

  1. Start "Control Panel" > "Network Connections"

  2. Right click one of your network connections and select "Status"

    Windows 7, Network Connection Status

This image is from Windows 7, but the dialog is almost identical in Windows 8 and 10.

    And if you want to also see errors in this window set this registry entry to 1: SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Network\Connections\StatMon\ShowLanErrors

    For me, displaying errors only works on Windows 7 Enterprise, not on Windows 7 Professional. Can someone confirm this behavior?

I think you might be after something like the result of the netstat -s command.

It will show you statistics like this:

Or if you want Layer 2 statistics, you can use netstat -e to get only those related to Ethernet:

Interface Statistics

                           Received            Sent

Quite simple once you know it and essentially the same way as in older versions:

  • Open the Network and Sharing Center (name might actually be different; not using English locale).

  • On the top left side bar there is an option to open the adapter settings. This leads you to the classic network listing.

  • Now double-click any adapter to get the classic property window with the adapter stats.

This question shows up in search results for dropped ethernet frames, so I'll add the only way I've found to get ethernet layer 2 stats (not layer 3+) on Windows (tested on 10, but might work on 7).

In Powershell:

Get-NetAdapterStatistics | Format-List -Property "*"

Normally the dropped/error/retransmit stats are hidden, so piping into Format-List shows all stats.
