Internet connection keeps getting disconnected while using Wireless Router

Internet connection keeps getting disconnected while using Wireless Router

Problem:
Internet works when connecting directly to computer but keeps getting disconnected often when using via router.

Solution:
Disable Connection on Demand / Connect Automatically

This sitting is usually found in Advanced Router Settings / Setup Control Panel.

For NetGear its under Advanced / WAN Setup.

Why it happens:
The router keeps disconnecting internet to save costs (ISP), this is not required nowadays when ISP's offer huge amount of bandwidth / unlimited internet access.
