Win8 drops wired internet connection
I connect my up to date windows 8 computer via ethernet through a Cisco E3200 router and a Cisco DPQ3212 cable modem. All devices have the latest drivers. My internet connection has the same name as my router. I have multiple devices connected wirelessly through the router. My active connection constantly drops out and resets itself. When it resets to the same name, all is ok. However multiple times per day, it resets to a new named network, "network 2". With network 2 my wired PC can get to the internet but cannot access the router. In addition all wireless devices can see the ssid and strong connection but cannot access the internet. I have replaced the modem, router, and all cables. Any suggestions?
