Your connection might be set to disconnect if idle for 20 minutes. To check in InternetExplorer go to Tools/InternetOptions and choose the "connections" tab at the top of the window that opens then choose settings/advanced a small window will open check in this window if the "disconnect if idle for 20 minutes" is ticked if so untick and click ok. now you should stay connected even if you are not actualy using your connection.
