system "forgets" how to connect to the internet

when I turn the laptop in the morning, the internet is working fast and smoothly, and continues to do so as long as someone is doing email
reports,research.....whatever, as long as its being done online. If you go away for 10-15 minutes,although the card monitor is still showing 90% signal, no internet. IF you restart, everything is there again, or you can run it through the setup paces, it will operate again. What simple step am I forgetting that will keep it running, or maybe wake on demand? any help will be greatly appreciated.
I am running suse 10 on a toshiba laptop and my card is a wavebuddy that suse recognized right off the bat.

Usually with wireless nic(s) you have options to disable power saving - go to adapter properties and disable that. See if that helps
