    Not sure what is going on, but a few mins after my mini screen turns off it loses the wifi and then I have to login in again ... no option to automatically connect to network in my settings either.

    what am I missing?

    Does this happen on every WiFi router? I had this problem at work ... when they replaced they wifi router, it went away. I'm going to assume this is most likely a problem on the wifi router.

    Yes, it only happens at work ... at home I rarely ever have to log back into it.

    Yeah this sounds EXACTLY like what I had. It only happened at work - every time the screen went off bam I'd lose wifi. I convinced the IT manager at my work (by pitching in some $ and convincing other coworkers to do the same) to buy a new router. Problem went away forever. Not every work situation is the same but those routers are pretty cheap (around $100).
