it is possible that when there is no activity on the wireless 
connection, the Windows XP driver decides to go in "sleep mode" and for 
some unknown reasons, it never leave this mode. It is possible that 
there is an advanced option with the Web Configurator to change this 
behavior of the Windows XP driver. The availability of this option is 
dependent on the installed Windows XP driver.

Alternatively, you could try to run a 'ping' process in the background 
on the wireless connection just to make sure that the Windows XP driver 
does not go in sleep mode. It is also possible that the following 
commands in a root shell will restore the connection:

ifup <wireless_interface>

instead of doing a reboot of the machine.

Finally, you could also try with different versions of the Windows XP 
driver which might be available on the web site of the vendor of the 
wireless device.
