I am connected to the network using my wired network card in my laptop.  I am running Vista Ultimate.  I also am not using the power cord.  My wired network card becomes disabled.  How can I keep this from happening?

Also, depending on teh make of the laptop, there might be a vendor app controlling power management, or even hardware/network settings.....
