Go to Device Manager and scroll down to Network Adapters, Right Click each one in turn and then click on Properties, open the Power Management Tab and check that the box stating "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" is not ticked. If it is then click on it to turn off the tick. Do this for both your Ethernet and Wireless Adapters if you have them.

Seems more like your set-up is wrong, rather than the BT side of things. Do as suggested by chub_tor, and come back with the results.

Another suggestion if above fails, is to get into your router by administrator rights, and perhaps check the log there?.

Rather surprised that BT didn't offer better support on perhaps a common problem. If that had been TalkTalk support, they would have perhaps offered a talk-around the situation. TalkTalk are not always receiving high praise at times for support, but in a case like this, they would have offered a possible answer or likely solution?.

"After I have come out of the internet and leave the computer on"

How are you doing this "come out of the internet"?

Also check hub settings it can be set to minimise use (mine switches off between midnight and 6 am)
