When my MacBook Pro wakes from being inactive for a period of time (couple of hours or overnight) and the same is true for my iPads, it says that the internet is not connected. I have to turn my wifi off and back on to connect. What's the problem?

It sounds like your router disconnects when there are no devices detected. This should be something that you can change in the router settings.

I have an Airport Extreme router and cannot figure out to change the router settings for this issue.
