Dropping LAN connection

Have installed wireless modem router and it seems to work fine with 3 laptops. I have it wired to the ethernet connection on the desktop and it is fine for a while and then seems to not let us connect to the internet. Works fine when we reboot.For a while again
Is there a box I am not ticking that means it disconnects after a while? (Seems to be an hour or so)

Sounds more like a firewall thing.

It normally tends to be the "wireless" connections which are temperamental, but try using a fixed IP address with your ethernet connection and see if that makes any difference.
