SRP541W drops idle connections fast

I have installed SRP541W and found a big anoying issue with this router - it drops idle TCP connections after a couple of minutes (more than 5 but less than 20) of inactivity. Namely, this "feature" becomes apparent when using ssh connections - if nothing happens in an ssh terminal for a given time, the connection is lost and the ssh client must be reconnected. As having a lot of ssh terminals open simultaneously (and, of course, leaving some them idle for a while) is a core of my work, this behavior annoys me a lot. Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

I understand that dropping idle connection is needed to keep the NAT tables reasonably small, but dropping connections after less than 20 minutes of inactivity is just way too fast and useless. Even cheap home routers usually do not drop idle connections after many hours or days of inactivity.
