I have a Belkin ADSL (DLS) modem and router and, after a mighty struggle to connect two laptops, managed to do so. The quickstart guide is appalling and there is nothing for it but to destroy a couple of forests by printing out the manual. Now, though, when the host (i.e. WAN) computer is turned off, the connected laptops can't connect to the internet after an hour or so. The router seems to go to sleep. And the internet connection does sometimes drop even when the host computer is up and running. Is there something I can configure to prevent this?
