wireless is turning off

what can I do, I have Mandriva 2010.2 and wireless is turning off when screen saver comes on or sometimes just whenever it wants, is there an option to keep it always on?

Maybe itís the wireless router going flaky on you. I personally swear by a wired connection, and I frequently swear at the wireless connection Iím stuck with here in this apartment building. I have the same problem as you, only not triggered by the screensaver. Wired connections never gave me this sort of grief. Iíll be moving Friday of next week, and I intend to go wired for my next place. I hate wireless!

You got to check you network settings. Some thing called " Disconnect network when idle" might have set.
