If I leave my laptop & it automatically goes to sleep, when I turn it back on, the internet connection is lost. Windows XP on old Dell laptop. Connection is wired in to a box which receives the signal from computer in upstairs room

In device manager click network adapotors, right click your ethernet card device select properties - power management tab.

uncheck the ethernet adapter option "allow the computer to turn off this device".
