I have a hp pavilion elite running windows 8 64 bit.
I have an:
intel R 62566DC-2 gigabit network connection
microsoft kernal debug network adapter
qualcomm atheros 802.11 a/b/g/n dual band network module
I have a motorola surfboard SB6121 modem
I have a linksys wireless n (wrt160nv2) router
** ever since converting to windows 8 a week ago my wireless connection keeps unconnecting. Sometimes I just have to hit the link again for the page i want online and sometimes i have to check my network and sharing center and find that the wireless is not connected. This computer also has a direct connection but other items (ie x box, dvd player) keep going offline. I also cannot homeshare because its says: your network connection must have ipv6 enabled to create or join a homegroup. When i hit homegroup troubleshooter it goes to the troubleshoot network problems. I hit that and it can't identify the problem. I have looked online for a fix but have found nothing like my total issue. Is there anyone that can help me or how can i just start a new network connection.
Thanks.

Make sure you have the latest wireless driver from HP's web site.

Are you saying your Xbox and DVD player also loose connectivity as well? If so that points to a router issue. Have you rebooted the router and checked for updated firmware for it?

When I checked with HP site, it has no software or driver downloads available for my computer in the windows 8 operating system. I got the upgrade to windows 8 through online through microsoft and a test was run to see my computer was compatible and it was so I upgraded. There were a couple of programs that didn't upgrade but they were not network or hardware related

That's not what the question was though. The question was do they also disconnect or loose connection to the internet?

Do you get the same problem with a computer connected directly to the modem? If not, make sure you have the latest router firmware; then reset the router to factory defaults and reconfigure.

My desktop pc is directly wired into the router but still at times I have to reclick sites to get them to load. Plus I clicked on the troubleshoot network problems and it comes up with:
Windows could not automatically detect this network's proxy settings

Does it still have issues if you connect it with a cable to the modem and bypass the router?
