Freezing of QGroundcontrol on Windows


I am using QGroundcontrol 4.2 on Windows 10.
Processor: i5, 8GB ram.

When the laptop is connected to Wifi no problems are present.
When I connect to Ethernet using rj45 connector I am observing freezing of the application for around 1 minute when I am trying to open the application settings.

This issue is similar to the one described here:

Is there a fix to this problem?

Thank you.
