Hi all, would anyone know why my wireless laptop looses it's connection if I don't use it for say 30 mins? The hard wired desktop PC is fine and remains connected permanently.
What confuses me though, is that when I return to my laptop, the network still reports as being active and connected, the wireless USB stick software (Netgear) shows it's connected (at a great speed and with excellent reception), but MSN won't connect, and I cant get on the net.
All's well if I simply restart the laptop, but I don't want to have to do this each time.
Ok.... right click My Computer > Properties > Hardware Tab > Device Manager > Network Adapters and select Wireless USB or whatever it is being listed as. Right click it > Properties and click on the Power Management Tab.....
