Default Losing Wireless Connection in Windows 7 When Computer Goes To Sleep

Hello everyone, I am running Windows 7 Ultimate. I have a HP 802.11b/g Wireless Netwatk Adapter and am using a Netgear WGR614v7 router. When my computer goes into sleep mode I lose wireless connection. The light on the router turns yellow. When I wake the computer the light goes green and everything is fine. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance for the help!!!

First off thanks for the help its very much appreciated. I clicked the link you posted and it doesn't say anything about the the wireless adapter settings. O did go into the Advanced options in Power Control and changed the Power Savings mode to Low Power Saving but there is no option there to disable it.

Low Power Saving is the opposite of what you want, the device needs to be set to run at full power which is the equivalent of 'disabling' low power mode.
