Plugging headphones in and out both cut out internet connection.

No idea why this is happening, but when I unplug, or plug in my headphones, I lose internet connection (using Ethernet) any fixes or anyway to pinpoint the problem

Maybe a grounding issue? Drivers interfering with each other? There should be no reason those two affect each other, but apparently they do.

What computer are you using and what is the manufacturer of your sound and ethernet drivers? I don't really have an answer but with my ASUS K53E laptop, whenever I'm watching a video either on Youtube or locally, sometimes the audio will stutter/sound like its buffering whenever there is network activity. Like I'd be watching a video from an external hard drive and doing some research in Chrome and whenever I'd load a website the audio would do something crazy. I've done some poking around and I think it's because the sound and network drivers come from the same company, and somehow their interfering with each other.
