Windows 7: Wireless all in one dropping off network, but not internet

Wireless all in one dropping off network, but not internet

I've got an all in one with a wireless connection. It's staying connected to my router, I see the ip in my router settings. I can still connect to the internet through the wireless machine. BUT, it's only accessible from my network\homegroup for about 10 minutes. As long as I start moving files over or whatever within that time, it's fine. But after 10 minutes of inactivity, it disconnects from the network. It can go backwards and connect to a lan connected machine, but it itself isn't shown on the map. I've checked power settings and they are set to maximum for the wifi card, but that shouldn't be it because I can still connect to the net and other computer FROM the wireless machine, it just disappears from the lan connected machines after awhile. Any things I might be overlooking?

So this machine's icon is dropping off the network list after 10 minutes? Does it drop off the list of Homegroup machines as well?

The last time I saw that problem I had a bad harddrive. If you can post a screen shot of the ipconfig/all from this machine it may be helpful.

Thanks for the reply. I think I got it lined out, will have to wait a bit and make sure it doesn't happen again.
I played with some of the settings and not quite sure which one did it.
