      Wireless connection goes when computer is left

      I set up my wirelss connection yesterday from desktop to desktop. I usually have my computer on Minimal Power Management so the monitor switches off after a few minutes when the computer is left and the hard disks and standby happens after a few minutes also.. But since I have set up the wireless connection I have noticed that when I leave the computer say on Outlook Express as I am waiting for an email the emails stop downloading as the connection goes to red and ceases. The whole point of broadband is the fact that it is always on. I have altered the Minimal Power Management so it never switches off the hard disks or goes to standby and it hasn't done this anymore. Is there anway of still having standby mode and hardidsks turning off after a few minutes and the connection not being lost as it wasn't with my last boradband company Waitrose.

      What am I doing wrong?

      Re: Wireless connection goes when computer is left

      Why are you going from desktop to desktop?

      What's your actual set-up?

      Do you have one PC wireless sharing the connection with a 2nd one?

      Why not just let both connect to the router themselves?


      Your broadband *is* always on.

      It's your PC that's disconnecting, due to you putting it in standby / power saving mode.
