    Staying connected to wireless network

    Just bought a new desktop. Took the old desktop to another room and bought a new wireless USB card so I can access the web from the router attached to the new computer. Set up was smooth and I was able to view the web from the old machine. The next morning, the wireless signal was gone and I had to restart the Wireless Zero Configuration from the Services and Application menu (right click on My Computer, choose Manage, Services and applications). Then I had to reconnect the wireless connection after changing the advanced settings to allow windows to configure etc.

    Every night for the last few nights, I get booted off the web and have to go through this process all over again.

    One more thing:

    The wireless network is secured and I have a WEP code. In the configuration process I chose Automatic and placed this network on top of several others in my area that are unsecured. As I said earlier, I get on the network with a strong signal (its in the next room) but get kicked off at night.

    Is this machine going into hibernation or sleep mode?
    These will create all kinds of issues with wireless and USB devices!

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
