    Default Windows 8 loses internet connection

    Hi all, just installed win8 Pro to test the SO and noticed an annoying problem.
    The system constantly loses the internet connection. It seems that the SO disconnected the ADSL modem again and again (model netgear DM111P ADSL2+).

    Configuration:
    Intel E6600 + MB Asrock 775Dual-VSTA
    2 GB RAM
    Modem Netgear DM111P ADSL2+
    Router LogiLink TL-WR841N connected to the PC trough an ethernet cable.
    I made a fresh installation of WIN 8 (no problem with any devices, all the drivers correctly installed)

    Any ideas?

    I know you say all drivers were installed correctly, but have you checked for newer drivers for the Netgear Modem/Router? I would also run the Network Troubleshooter. Right click the network icon and select the T/S.

    It's not a a modem/router, but a modem. No driver is required for the modem, since it's connected to the router (LogiLink TL-WR841N) trough an ethernet cable. This last is linked to the PC to the ethernet port.
