Network connection being dropped even after updating the driver to the latest realtek one r8168-8.037.00. I am running Ubuntu 13.04.
I need to usually reboot my router to fix and or the cable modem also. Other systems connected don't have this problem.
Also I added the following as well.
echo on | sudo tee /sys/class/net/eth0/device/power/control
Below shows my
lspci -v output I put in bold the Ethernet item in question
