Q: Setup wifi connection to network without internet access

I have set up a local network without internet access for home automation purposes. I an connect to the network thourgh the wireless router exept with my windows 7 notebok. The connection is reported as limmited connectivity as there is not internet access. Well there will never be internet access. But I can connect to all the local devices. So far so good. After aprox 30 seconds windows 7 drops the wifi connection automatically. How can I prevent windows 7 from disconnecting?
