comment TP-Link router sometimes fails to negotiate proper IP address
I've updated my post. The cable box also has some non-internet cables (telephone and digital TV) plugged in to it, but I left them out for the sake of simplicity. Does this give you the information you need?

comment Windows 8 no longer sends sound to headphones when plugged in
Does this reinstate the auto-switching behavior? I can no longer reproduce the problem so I can't verify your proposed solution. I think it may have been driver-related in my case, because I'm currently using the default Windows 8 driver instead of the one that the manufacturer supplied.

I don't know... I haven't had any more problems with it. I guess you could check the "Not plugged in" indicator in the Sound window.

comment Windows 8 no longer sends sound to headphones when plugged in
So I was poking around in the Sound windows when I noticed that the Headphones indicator said "Not plugged in". I set the default output device to Headphones while the cable was plugged in and it worked fine. I don't think that anything changed driverwise. Hardware failure is not off the table yet, but at least it's working for the time being.

Isn't there a built-in Windows diagnostic that says "Headphones are plugged in" or "Headphones aren't plugged in"?
