This seems like the perfect forum to help solve this ancient problem of mine. When using my laptop via wireless at my house, the internet connection last about 15-30 minutes (sometimes longer) and then cuts out. I'm running Windows Vista and so I'll see the internet connection icon in the system tray change from two monitors with a world to only two monitors. This obviously means I've lost a connection to the internet.

I can do one of two things to fix it...

1) let it sit for 5-10min and it will reconnect

2) manually disconnect from the wireless network and then manually reconnect to my network. Then it will fine immediately.


The funny thing is that it only does this with my Laptop. We've got phones, Sonos, Macbook, desktop, roku, etc all connected to the network.

Is there anyway I can permanently fix this connection issue?
