Problem: Server and Clients Continue To Loose Internet Connections

I've just set up a server "successfully" for the first time in my home.
I'm able to ping it and RDP into it, but for some reason, it continues to loose internet connection.
Which in turn causes the clients that I have connected to it to loose internet connection.

The client that I'm having issues with is connected via wireless adapter.  The server box that I have is connected via ethernet to a wireless router.

The only thing that seems to resolve it (temporarily at this point) is to hit the power button on my server box, which seems to wake it up (this is an assumption) and then after a minute or so the internet connection returns.

What do I need to do to make sure that my internet connection is consistent?

I don't know why the client iterate is setup to go through the server but that's not the question. To stop the server from goingto sleep: check the power settings for sleep after and hibernate after. Also in device manager properties your network adapters ad uncheck allow windows to turn offthis device to save power

I've done the first of your suggestions the first time I recognized the issue.  The issue is still persisting.

I'm not really clear on what you're saying in your second suggestion

I'm not certain how that feature turned on.  If you're aware of how to stop that (connecting to the internet via the server) please let me know.  I believe that it's causing other connection issue on other clients I have.

Thanks for the help thus far.

I've done what you've suggested.  I did notice however that while the computer is unable to connect to the internet, the adapter still seems to recognize the network.  Is there any particular reason to this?  

This whole thing is new to me and I'm trying to figure things out.

Thanks in advance for your patience.

The solution suggested was tried simultaneously with other "solutions" not certain which of the attempts were correct, however the end result IS a functioning system.
