    Mandriva 07 wireless - managed accounts?


    I have no problems whatsoever with my wireless internet connection through Mandriva 2007.

    Unless I leave the PC idle for 5 or 10 minutes.
    If I do that, Firefox just sticks with the message, "looking up..[website]" along the bottom status bar.

    If I go into network settings, I can choose Wireless, my network, the driver, then yes to connect and I'm back online again. This works, but is a pain to do a half dozen times per night.

    Most of my network settings have the 'automatic' or 'auto' options tagged and it works fine as long as I'm active at the desk, but I have to eat or go to the bathroom sometime!

    Any ideas, please?

    A little progress tonight.

    When my connection drops after leaving the PC idle for a few minutes, I remove the USB adapter and re-insert it and we're back in buisness. Very strange.
