New to this wireless networking deal and have a problem, hope someone can help..

I recently bought a wireless router and a wireless network card for my laptop (I have cable internet but use AOL also).  The router is netgear MR814.  Both pc's have windows xp pro and are connecting to the internet with no problem and with excellent signal.  The channel is set to 6 after being on 1 and 11.  Here's the problem...

When I'm online and actually using the computer everything works great but when the computer has been idle for about 15min. or so my AOL disconnects(IE does the same when AOL is not connected) and it has to reconnect all over again.  I called AOL and they said all the settings were fine, I also called Netgear and they could not help me out.  This only started to happen after i switched to wireless networking bc when i was wired i did not have this problem.

Any help would be greatly appriciated

You may have a check box in the router setup labelled 'dial up' or something similar, with a time allotment. On my 3Com it was set to disconnect after five minutes of inactivity. Increasing this to several hours suited me; and it could be turned off so the connection was always on.
