How can I fix Wireless Router Timeouts?

I recently installed a D-Link Wireless N 300 Cloud Router DIR-605 L. I had a lower model before, but it conked out, that's why I replaced it with this unit... I never had Wi-Fi problems when I was using my old G series router... With this new one, my internet connection times out every 1 hour 45 minutes... After 15 minutes, the connection is ok again for another 1 hour 45 minutes, then a 15-minute timeout again... This happens without fail... on the dot... I thought it was my ISP's fault, but when I connect the modem cable directly to my laptop, I experience no timeouts at all.... What should I do to stop Wireless router timeouts? Thanks.

Check the power settings on your wifi adapter - see the section under "More Information" here; http://support.microsoft.com/kb/928152
