Why do I keep losing my internet connection on my wireless usb?

triciasue
I recently purchased a sierra usb wireless aircard for my laptop. If I do not use it for 5 or 10 minutes , it loses its connection to the internet. Would I be better off with a card insert rather than the usb? Can I change the settings so my computer stays connected even after a few minutes of not using it.
Thanks,
Tricia

    Are your power saving settings to blame...?

    Do you have your computer going to sleep during that 5 - 10 minutes of inactivity?

    THanks, I changed those settings I hope it helps. What a simple solution, I can not believe I did not think of it. Also, Do you know what works better, a usb wireless or a card insert?
