Internet Haults When Desktop Goes Idle


Registered Member
Okay, I have asked numerous tech people and nobody can seem to give me an answer as well as me searching for this and it really pisses me off.

No matter what router I have, if my desktop computer has been idle for I don't even know the time limit, the internet will sort of cut off as it were. My Trillian will stay active but if I come back after whatever hours and open up my browser I can't get connected to the internet. On my old router I used to be able to reset it via the control panel but this Lynksys doesn't have a reset button on the control panel so I have to Log off and Log back on the computer to get the internet to work. Desktops don't go into hibernation mode. WTF is this doing it? I can access the wifi no problems ever.
