Windows 7: Random Loss Of WiFi Connection

If you are connecting to your router via a USB dongle then ensure that all your 'Root Hubs' in Device Manager are not set to 'allow the computer to send this port to sleep' (or words to that effect).

Unfortunately Windows 7 by default upon install sets them all to sleep mode.

No, the router is connected by ethernet, not USB, but I just checked the Root Hubs as you mentioned anyway, in case they might be related to other non-router issues, and they are not set to go to sleep. Thanks.
