Exclamation Wireless connection drops when XP goes idle

My wireless connection (via USB antenna) goes dormant or disconnects when either the XP system sits ideal for a short period of time or the screen saver kicks in. I have to log out and log back in for the wireless adapter to reconnect to my wireless router. My notebook does not have this issue so i know it is not my router. (it also happens when Iím hardwired into my router)

I have looked at my power settings, my network settings and my adapter settings and there does not seem to be any options that would fix this error.

Basically I want to be able to have my computer connected to the internet 24/7 with out having to reboot the XP OS evertime is takes a nap :(

Any thoughts or suggestions?
