There is a built in system that is probably the cause of this - Go to the Network controls Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Network Connections and locate the connection that is dropping, right click and select properties, then select configure, there should be a Tab on the far right "Power Management" open this tab and deselect the checkbox to "Allow windows to switch off to save power"

This option is a remnant from the days of pay Net access and so is not needed with today's always-on access, there is a timer that acts after a time of inactivity, so if you are watching Netflix or similar if you do not move the mouse or make any other interaction regularly it will break the network connection
