Losing wireless connection without showing in the status icon

Hi Group

I've searched the interned but have found no answer.

I've got at macbook that several times a day looses the wireless
connection to my router. The wireless icon stays on full, but the
connection is not existant. I have to reconnect to my router to get
connected again by either:
1) close the lid, open it again.
2) disable airport, then enable it again.
3) choose any other network and then my own again.

I'm using a FON router, and this only happens when the internet is not
used for some time. If i'm constantly using the net (downloading, fast
surfing) it doesn't happen, only when the net hasn't been used for some
time.

I've read about it being somthing about a power saving feature of the
wireless chip.

Please help me.

TIA Rune
