Hallo guys.A few days ago my time at startup of the pc is wrong. The timezone is correct and ticked. 

I have changed the battery of my ups these days. Can this affect? 

Also i have an instability with my network these days.

My motherboard is 1,5 years old so i dont think that the cmos battery is nearly dead.

Can you help me?

Check the clock in BIOS. If it is off, set the correct time and keep an eye on it. If it changes, then it is your CMOS battery. You might want to change the time server as shown here.

Ichecked the time in the BIOS, it wasnt off. Ialso changed the time server, but i dont know if it helps because with the default server at sychronizing everything works fine. So if it is the cmos battery, is there something that i need to know for the replacement. Where can i find it?

The existing battery is a Newsun cr2032. Do i have to put the same or i can put whatever i want?

If the BIOS clock wasn't off, I'm not sure it would be the battery. But if you do change it, you will need a CR2032. Doesn't make a difference what the make is. They are fairly cheap, especially on ebay.

How can I check that the clock is not setted off from the bios?
In the system panel at time and date there is nowhere a switch on/off.

You cannot switch the system clock off from the BIOS, if that is how I understand the question. The BIOS clock sets the Windows clock. I would change the battery and see if that helps.
