Mac Internet Connection

Hi all

I am downloading something this evening that's taking hours, and I'm going out for the evening, so I won't be in to check it.

It's on Mac OS X. The connection for the internet stops working (airport) after about 20 mins of somebody not using the mac, and when you turn it back on it goes to a page saying that safari could not connect. You then have to go back through the network diagnostics to correct the problem.

This stops the download from functioning. Is there anyway I can just keep the internet running and not lose connection after a certain period of time?
