    I use a Verizon 4G Jetpack as my wi-fi connection to the Internet. The PC I use is a Gateway and if I walk away from the unit for a few minutes, or do not use the keyboard for a few minutes, I lose my connection to the Verzion Jetpack. I've been putting up with this for sometime but have finally had enough and am trlying to rectify the situation. We have another PC (Dell) in the same office and it does not lose the connection no matter how long you are away. I'm hoping this is a simple setting change, but I can't find out where to make the change. Your help would be appreciated. My Gateway specs are as follows:

    Control Panel (small or large icons) - Power Options - Change plan settings (for your current plan ) - Change advanced power settings - Wireless Adapter Settings - Power Saving Mode - if not set to 'Maximum Performance' try a setting that does less power saving.
