Losing Internet connection every time screensaver activates

I've had this problem for a while now: Every time my screensaver kicks in, it kills my Internet connection. Well, I finally figured out what was causing it from this thread.

As one person points out, I needed to do this:
Start --> Programs --> Accessories --> Communications --> Network Connections --> Right-click on the Local Area Connection and select Properties --> Click on the Configure... button --> Select the Power Management tab --> Ensure that Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power. is unchecked.
