Internet disconnect after 15mins 30secs

  gmm 19:19 06 Sep 2003

My new tosh laptop is working fine but my internet connection keeps dropping after 15 mins and 30 secs even though I have set it to auto disconnect after 1 Hour inactive.

Any suggestions on how to overcome this?
Desktop works fine on same line

May be the power settings in your laptop, they could be set to close down/hibernate, or go into power saving mode after a set period. This may be the cause of dropping your internet connection.

Go into control panel and check under power management, make your changes from there. j.
