Lossing wired connection, but not wireless

I have cable internet and use a Belkin N+ Router. I have several computers running throughout the house. 1 desktop, (this one) and 2-3 laptops (wireless connection). The desktop is wired to Belkin N+ router. Almost everyday I loss intenet connection on desktop (wired). I have to uninstall the ethernet driver and reinstall to regain connection. Any ideas why and what I can do about this?

Go to network and sharing centre,on the right it will say Change Adapter Settings
Right click your Adapter and click Properties.Left click IPv4 and click properties. Make sure obtain ip address and DNS automatically.
You could also try disabling IPv6.

Also,look in your Programs via Control Panel>Programs and if you see Bonjour,delete the program.
Then open task manager (CTRL+SHIFT+ESC)
Go to proccess,if Bonjour is there, Right Click>End Proccess
