    ISP: Comcast Cable
    Router: Duolinks SW24
    AP: Cisco WAP 4410N
    OP: Vista Ultimate

    When I leave my computer idle, it disconnects after 5 minutes or so and the computer can not be pinged. I have disabled the following so far:

    System Power Managment
    Hardware Power Management
    All sleep/hibernate for system and hardware
    Set 'net config server /autodisconnect:-1'

    If I keep something running like pandora.com, then I wont get disconnected. So I want to blame it on Vista for another setting that has 'disconnect when idle' or the sort that I just havent found.

    Now for the screwball.. when I use my Linksys WRT120N wireless router, the connection stays alive indefinitely... or at least 10hrs that i tested. So now, I have the blame the fault on the Duolinks Router or Cisco AP, but I cant find any configuration that has to deal with idle timeouts. I also cant figure out of the Linksys (working) router has some sort of keep alive function that the Duolinks does not..

    Please let me know if you have any ideas...
