How do you connect to the Cable Modem - USB or ethernet?

If you are using USB, I would suggest changing to ethernet unless there is a particular reason why you cannot do this. If an ethernet connection loses internet access, presumably due to losing its IP address while in standby, opening the Network Connections folder, double clicking the Local Area Connection, selecting the Support tab and clicking the Repair button should force the adapter to renew its IP address.

Using ethernet, already tried repair button, takes about 3 minutes to get message "could not renew IP address"

Additional info; using Panda platignum 2005 internet security, fully up to date with windows updates,

Also; I have unchecked the boxes "allow computer to turn off" in power management settings of everything related to connections. Still no fix?
