What kind of connection is this? I'm thinking that maybe you have to set it to automatically redial, because it automatically cuts off after an hour. Does your son have the same problem with his computer?
Thank you for the reply,
When his wife plugs the lap top directly into the router it does not time out. He also has his TIVO pluged into the Router and that does not time out.
The main desk top doesn't time out either.
The router has 4 ethernet connections and two are used with the laptop and TIVO.
It is only when using the laptop wirelesly that it times out.
