It may be because windows 7 is shutting off the network adapter when the pc is idle.

Try

Start - Control Panel - in the search box at the top type in adapter - under network and sharing centre click on view network connections.

Right click on your connection and in the drop-down box click on Properties - Click the networking tab and configure - click on power management tab and make sure that the box allow the computer to turn off this device to save power is unticked.
