I'm hoping there is a setting or method to disallowing the web page redirect when I lose connection. For instance, I'll be typing up a document online and if I lose internet connection from my wireless connection then the webpage with the document gets lost and I get the no connection page from IE. Is there anyway to make it stay on the previous page that way when the connection comes back I can continue the report and not lose the information? Thanks!

If you are using Google Docs this should not happen. This issues sounds more like an issue of the site you are using. I recommend using other browsers or using a different site to type up documents. For instance: Chrome has offline features for Google Docs (and other applications in the Google Drive suite) that will allow you to work offline and automatically backup every time you reconnect.
