My guess is that your IP address is changing when the DSL connection drops. I think (but do not know for sure) that the WG forum site will force you to re-logon if you change IP addresses, even if you have the "Remember Me" option set when you logon. My guess is based on my own experience: I use a laptop that I carry between home and work, and whenever I change locations, I am logged out. It's a bit of a pain because the "View New Posts" functionality gets messed up when I visit the site after changing locations.

Since the time I posted this I have been able to convince my DSL provider to increase my idle timeout value. That seems to have solved the problem. John, I suspect that your guess about the IP address is correct since I am behind my own hardware firewall and it does seem to (sometimes) assign a new IP address when the DSL reconnects.
