    Default Issue with network and auto-sleep (or something related)

    Hi, I'm a bit new to this Linux thing, but not so much on security and others but my problem is this, I could configure my wireless fine and everything works great, except that if I don't touch the computer for 30 mins. (aprox.) the connection stop working and I have to set it up again.
    The commands used to configure the network are:

    Code:
    ifconfig wlan0 up
    iwconfig wlan0 essid (network)
    iwconfig wlan0 key (wep)
    dhclient-r wlan0
    dhclient wlan0
    That's it.
    Thanks in advance.

    Maybe your router is disconnecting you due to inactivity.
    It might even be considered a safety feature.
    As it is this is really not telling us a lot.

    Hi, sorry, I know what the problem is, its just the dhclient renewal option like:
    Code:
    Listening on LPF/wlan0/00:24:2c:92:20:93
    Sending on   LPF/wlan0/00:24:2c:92:20:93
    Sending on   Socket/fallback
    DHCPREQUEST of 192.168.1.68 on wlan0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67
    DHCPREQUEST of 192.168.1.68 on wlan0 to 255.255.255.255 port 67
    DHCPACK of 192.168.1.68 from 192.168.1.254
    bound to 192.168.1.68 -- renewal in 34851 seconds.
    and i dont know how to change it.
    Thanks
