Have you checked your internet options to make sure you don't have dial a connection ticked?
Make sure it says never dial a connection.
Also in your router settings, make sure in Basic Settings it is
Idle Timeout (In Minutes) 0

No basic settings listed for me either. Does that mean we can't stop router from disconnecting.

Not in order of the posts:
The Sky router doesn't allow you to set idle time in the admin pages. From memory I think I recall when having looked at the config file that there is a parameter set to zero idle time so that shouldn't matter in any case.
There are a number of reasons why something else may be causing the disconnect when idle.
First thing to look at (as NewsreadeR suggests) is internet options (control panel/internet options/connections). If you have a dial up connection here then make sure it's not set to disconnect when idle. Then select never dial a connection.
Next up would be to look at the properties of your network card and make sure that you've not set Windows power management to "turn off this device to save power".
