    I'm running a wireless router and network adaptor with windows xp
    home. When I leave the PC for some time, my network connection has
    been disabled when I return and I have to re-enable it.

    Is there a way of keeping it enabled? The router stays connected ok.

    Look at the network adapter's Properties from Device Manager (Control
    Panel>System>Hardware). On the Power Management tab, uncheck "Allow
    Windows to turn off this device when not in use" and see if that helps.

    Thanks Malke, however this network adaptor doesn't have a power
    management tab in device manager. The options are -
    General-Advanced-Driver and Resources. No reference to power management
    on it.
    However, my cable adaptor does have power management listed as an
    option and that worlks fine.

    A clue maybe?
