Cable internet Help Winxp

I'm having problems with my cable connection. It has to be software related. If I leave my computer for 20 minutes or so, I come back and everything is booted off the net... The only way to get back on is to restart. I thought that possibly the network card powered down, but that setting was fine... Any other possibilities that could lead to this?
Thanx in Advance!

Check your Power Managment settings. Make sure your HDD is not set to turn off. I liked the idea of using the sleep function, until it kept doing the same to me.

Everything else works fine though... I can play games or work on photos, with no problem. I just cannot access the internet. I have everything on in my power settings.
