Is it a network share? What network server?
This is often a property of the server, not the computer. You generally do not want a connection stale:
It allows anyone on the computer to gain access.
It eats up resources on the server.

New machines often have POWER settings that turn off things that aren't in use after a time. Check to be sure the Wifi or Network Adapter is set to stay ON and not turn off. If they do turn off, so will your Network! More details on what is happening would also be helpful? What network, what OS, what "time frame", etc.

which server? what are you trying to do? what equipment are you using? Routers issue an IP to a computer for a period of time. those values are determined by the default settings and whether the router is for many people or just one. Typically 24hours may be used, as it would be assumed you would switch off and come back tomorrow and login again. if you are trying to use a separate pc as a server(always on) then you need to alter the router settings and give the pc a fixed ip which does not expire. You are also governed by your ISP if that server is exposed publicly, because through LACK OF ACTIVITY your router login connection may be disconnected especially if you have a Dynamic public IP assigned to your router.
