Hello!

I came across an old thread in these boards that had an unsolved problem. The issue was, after some time idle, the computer would shutdown the wireless card and lose its IP configuration; and in order to restore that IP configuration, both the router and the adapter had to be restarted.

Just like the forum experts, I figured out it should be something with power saving. The power configuration for my card in the device manager, though, was already set to CAM (Constantly Awake Mode or something), and my only different option was Max_PSP (Max Power Saving Mode), which ruined my wireless card making it slow and unstable.

Sooo, I decided to look into the USB roots' configuration, and each of them showed me whether there was a device plugged into it or not. That helped me finding which root was handling the wireless card, so I went to power management options for the corresponding root and unmarked "Allow this computer to turn off this device to save power." And yea! It works.
